I'm experimenting with building some headphones from scratch and would love some input on picking some appropriate full range drivers/speakers. I've been combing through the parts-express website and there are quite a few nice looking full range speaker options in that measure 2 - 3.5 inch.
Not really sure the appropriate ohms and wattage to look for
I know most of these aren't designed specifically for headphones but do you think any of these would work in a set of oversize (Hifiman size cups)?
Some I was looking at -
HiWave BMR5 Compact 2" Full-Range Square Speaker 5W 8 Ohm
HiWave BMR12 Compact 2" Full-Range Square Speaker 12W 8 Ohm
Replacement Speaker Driver for Bose 901 4-1/2" 1 Ohm
I know you can contact sennheiser direct and by drivers or canabolize cheaper headphones but that is more then I want to spend. and I'm already working on some modded t50rp...
Any help, thoughts or links would be much appreciated. thanks!
