My DIY electrostatic headphones - Page 6

post #76 of 1527
Thread Starter 

I had a chance to meet with friends who own Stax headphones.  Using that opportunity, I took some measurements of different models.  Among them is the Omega 2.  I had finished making the drawing and will cut out all the parts to try.  I think it will be a fun project.  :)

I really enjoy being on this forum.  It's my first time to see so many people using electrostatic headphones.  I'm really excited and looking forward to building more amps for my headphones.

 

I am not familiar with 6S4A.  I'll study about the tube and hopefully try what you suggested.

 

Here is another amp of mine - same schematic but in different housing.

I've got some free time this afternoon and these are what I have achieved today.

As for the male connector, I found these metal rods exactly like what are used on Stax's.  With my CNC, I cut the top part using a 5 mm plastic sheet, and I use a small piece of PVC pipe as the body.  It turns out quite nice.  :)

I like the Stax connector.  We do something similar for the sockets, copper pins from China and a CNC cut teflon body.

Hi Spritzer,

 

That's a good idea with female sockets.  :)

Hi Pabbi1,

 

Those are really nice looking sockets.  If I can find the pins, they should be very easy to make.  Thanks for sharing.

They are these sockets pins: http://cgi.ebay.com/10-CMC-8P-Tube-Socket-Glod-Pin-Hex-Snap-2x10mm-Hole-/130342224494? fits snugly on my 404 and 507 pins.

Thanks a lot!  :)

The above are compliments of luvdunhill, and Kerry has also made some as well. The .75" teflon rod makes a perfect barrel.

Hi Pabbi1,

 

Thanks for your information.  I'll go ahead and order those socket pins.

I finished cutting my spacers today.

The new stators are so much smaller than my first version.
