first time for me on this forum and what an interesting place it is.
I was at our local re-cycling centre the other day when I had a look in the shed that is for items that might be of some use and free to take away. Sitting there in a somewhat unloved manner was a set of Jecklin Float Model Ones! I had been thinking about these recently and so I was amazed that, out of the blue, a set just fell into my hands! Yes, they do work, and yes the foam coverings are well and truly disintegrated and the mesh panels have become partly detached.
I have had a look at other posts regarding the Model One's to see what other people are doing with them and what they make of them sonically. I have yet to listen to them properly because of the state of them, but the reports that I have read say that the high frequencies are rolled off and they are not to deep in the bass.
Looking at the mesh grills that the drivers are attached too, it seems to me that the hole size of the mesh is very small and therefore might constrain the sound coming from the drivers in an adverse manner. Has anyone tried a more open mesh? I will replace the foam as applicable and generally clean them up but is there anything else I can do to them to ensure that they perform to their maximum?
Whilst I'm here, are there any cheap and cheerful DAC Headphone amps that are worth buying?
