How to make woody earcups for Fostex T50RP?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Are there any tutorials, design plans, how-to's, or people with helpful advice regarding constructing wooden ear cups for the Fostex T50RP and the assembly of the drivers into the cups? I think this would be a fun and challenging modification to the headphones to try. Thanks for any and all help!

The only thing is the Thunderpants site.  I'd just look at his pictures of his cups and try to get some wood and replicate it.  It's all I have found like you, no one ever replies to questions like this I have found because no one knows.  I think I am going to try it though and go to Home Depot or something and get a 2x4 of some pine wood or something and shape it using I have no idea what and stain and go from there.  Just use the old ear cup as a template I guess.  Let me know if you find anything else out!

hmm interesting. I could have sworn I saw some posts where someone made his/her own wooden cups (not from Smeggy) for the fostex t50rp.

 

The biggest hurdle is figuring out the measurements and dimensions of everything. From there, one would probably need a lathe to cut nice smooth bowls into the wood to make the cups. As for the construction of the baffles, I have no idea.
