My DIY electrostatic headphones - Page 97

post #1441 of 1585

Both Wachara's headphones measurement by Tyll Hertsen sure don't look ghetto to me.

This guy from Thailand took my advice and built his own headphones from something simple to find.  I give him two thumps up.

 

And of course, the food wrap plastic is used here as the diaphragms.

What a great finding. This shows that it is possible to DIY systems with superb quality without enormous cost, although it is obvious that Wachara could have bought many off-the-shelf systems for his investment in money and time.

A standard electrostatic capsule would be seized on by many people, I think. The idea of organising production of one is so compelling that I will be forced to investigate it if nobody else appears to be doing so.

Hi Fred,

 

If you need any design from me, just let me know.  I'm more than willing to share.

Ok, I'll try something different this time.  Let's see if there will be any improvement.

 

I've made some little modifications to my Float style headphones design.  I'm going to have a 6 mm hole right in the middle of the stators similar to what Stax is doing with their SR009.  At the same time, I'll shrink the spacer width by 2 mm.  I'm shooting for more diaphragm stability and hopefully I can use 0.5 mm spacer without any issue this time.

I've got some free time this afternoon.  So, I went out to cut some stators. :bigsmile_face:

It looks great.

Damn, I wish I had access to a CNC mill!

Looks great. What plan do you have in mind for these ? Perhaps the original Stax SR Sigma layout. with the driver angled at the ears from back to front, projected outwards. They tend to increase the sound-stage and improve imaging from the numerous user posts here in Head-fi.

Seems very likely, though it is hard to get deep and low distortion bass from such a setup. My Sigmas definitely has more depth to the sound than my hd800.

I had a chance to listen to a pair of SR Sigma before, but frankly, I thought the sound was quite colored.  The new Jacklin Float QA, however, sounded wonderful to my ears.  That's why I have chosen to build the Float style headphones.  The last pair that I built had some problems, and so I'll try something different this time.   :wink_face:

Ok, all the parts are cut and all the needed holes are tapped. Next, I need to etch away the unwanted copper.
