I really miss the JF clone that I sent to Kevin, and so I make myself another pair.  I had a hard time tensioning the diaphragm to the right tension.  So I added the thickness to the spacers for another 0.15 mm.  Playing the headphones with my KGST, I really like them.  :)

This is my first post here.

 

I just finished making my 1st DIY ES Headphones.

Whachara, thank you for sharing your designs!

 

For the head arm, I gave up bending stainless rod and I am using a coat hunger instead. It is not hard enough to holding cups but...  

 

Sound is very clear and better soundstage than my SR407.:o2smile:

My next project is JF type..

 

I will upload images when I got a permission from the site.

To get a permission for upload images, I need put more posts on the thread

Sorry for my poor English but let me describe how I made.

 

I used Reztore Topical Antistatic for the diaphragm coating.

It is very stable so far. I will keep using it for my future ES projects.

 

For the 2 um Mylar tensioning, I used water bottle method.

Started with 360g (included clip = 60g) x 16pcs then stopped at 180g (120+60) x 16pcs that reached satisfied bass sound for me.  

 

I would like to say thank to everyone on this thread. :smile:

By the way, what are your spacer thickness and bias voltage, inuponken?
