~50mm round orthodynamic drivers (or headphones containing them!)
Will Ship To: Anywhere
(Hope this is the right place - I didn't really see a headphone parts forum...)
So I have a battered old pair of CD3000s and one of the drivers has gone. While the made-by-bacteria Sony drivers do seem good and I like the sound, as an owner of some Thunderpants it struck me that the acoustically dead cups and angled arrangement might make them an excellent foster home for some planar drivers.
So, I'm looking for some round orthodynamic drivers, ~50mm in diameter - the CD3K drivers are 50mm with no tabs poking out and I would like to fit the new drivers into the existing housing if possible, as shown here.
Has anyone tried this? There's this old thread which suggests some success with 55mm Yamaha HP-1/YH-1 drivers, but there are also the 46mm Yamaha HP-2/YH-2 ones which might fit in the housing better - and the older round Fostex T20RP drivers, which I think are 45mm. As luck would have it, the YH-1000 apparently uses 50mm drivers but I guess I wouldn't brutalize one of those
Of course I would be interested in the whole donor phones too as long as the price is right... and if all else fails, a Sony CD3000 driver would be great
