post #24676 of 24682

Hey Everyone, 

I have been in pursuit for some Aiwa orthodynamics for quite some time now.

I am stoked to get a HP-X  and  HP-T series Aiwa orthodynamics, are you familiar with

any of these series? Do you know any information about them?
I have attached a picture of an Aiwa HP-X10, one of the leading piece of the series.


Please write me in case of any information about these! :)

Thanks in advance

The translation on the website this image is from says it's "model dynamic type".

And the headphone itself has "Dynamic Stereo Headphone" printed on the headband.

 

Are you certain these are planars?

Oohh my bad, sorry, maybe not all of these are for this thread, 
maybe only the HP-X80, which I am quite sure is an orthodynamic headphone.
And the quite famous HP-500. I'd still like to get one of these, and of course an

Aiwa HP-X80 as well. 
Sorry if I am mistaken here. Still need info ;)

I've been using my modded old Fostex T30's the last few days while I'm working on my new electrostatic amp and the original cable for the left channel is getting intermittent from a fault about halfway down the factory cable. What connectors do you guys recommend for the cups so I can convert it to detachable cable? I was thinking maybe twin mini XLR or twin 3.5mm.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I decided to go with the quick solution since these are my backup headphones and I need them now. I found I had some four conductor cable approximately the same gauge as the original and just did a straight rewire. Sounds better, but I don't know how much of that is replacing thirty year old copper vs the better job I did with redoing the damping mod when I put them back together.

When i did my PMB-100 rebuild, I used Switchcraft 2.5mm plugs that are available with anodized aluminum shells in multiple colors, so i have red for the right side and black for the left. Of course, the PMB-100 has a 2.5mm jack on each side already. 

 

I don't know that a vertical 2.5mm jack would hold very well by itself. They are horizontal on the PMB-100. 

 

Anyway, speaking of Team Sturzhelm, i bought that pair of B&O U70 off ebay, if any of you were wondering who snatched it.

Yeah, I'd like to hear a dynapleat some day, even if it turns out to be not that good.
