Sounds like a brilliant idea.By that I mean it would be a brilliant idea for you to take your meds.

Why would you replace the K1000s drivers with an inferior one?
post #1323 of 1399
I don't believe they are inferior. I realize the result if this experiment is unlikely to suit everyone's taste. But that isn't my objective.
post #1324 of 1399
I'm with Duke... It seems pretty hard to make the leap that the 812 drivers would be the right drivers for the K1000 frame. I'd think there would be better candidates... But good luck!



post #1325 of 1399
Thanks. What candidates would you regard as more promising?
post #1326 of 1399

I wish I has some ideas for you.  It seems to me it's going to end up being more like a small "speaker" than a headphone driver... perhaps I'm being naive and they are more similar than different, but I think I'd be looking for a really good small speaker to put in there.  I know one of the engineers from the project post here occasionally, perhaps he can offer something up to help?

post #1327 of 1399

Perhaps a driver from a Bose 901.

post #1328 of 1399
cool, thanks for the suggestion.I'll look into the small speaker idea, including the 901. Do you know the username of the engineer who sometimes posts here?

hrklug or something like that.

i just got my k1000 #07056, it sounds quite a lot brighter than the hd800, the hd800 is thicker and smoother almost veiled in comparison, is this what you guys are hearing ?

They require an good SET speaker amp to drive them correctly.

thinking of getting the accuphase e-360 integrated amp (100w per channel), will this be adequate or is it too much power?

If possible, take K1000 to the shop and try them out, just be carefull with volume pot.

unfortunatly i cant do that as i live in another city and can only purchase this online 

post #1335 of 1399

Well, if you can push that kind of money without listen first, maybe you can buy TrendsAudio T10.2 as well, just to compare the two.
