Over the past year I've discovered the world of high end headphones and since then I have developed an audio fetish. I started my journey trying to find the best headphones for me, but I always seemed to be disappointed. I tried countless of different headphones, everything from Sennheiser, Grado, Hifiman and many other brands. After months of research, I started getting tired of the headphone hunt and I was about to settle with a decent pair of Hifiman HE-300. But then, as I was searching through the Head-Fi forums I discovered a thread on orthodynamic headphones. I was inspired by all the awesome DIY creations, especially with all the custom Fostex T50-RP headphones. At that point I decided that I was going to build my ultimate pair of headphones.
For my first creation I decided to customize a pair of Fostex T50-RP. I gained a lot of my inspiration form the Thunderpants models and Hifiman headphones. I made the wooden cups to hold the drivers and I ripped the head band off a pair of vintage Stanton headphones. I wanted my creation to look like a pair of closed Hifiman headphones. I call these babies Los Matadors
The photo insert tool was not working when i made this post, so i added a link to where you can view the headphones.
For my next creation I combined a pair of Pioneer SE-L40 and Yamaha hp-1 Mario Bellini headphones. I gutted the inside of the Pioneer cups so that I could fit the drivers from the HP-1 headphones. I also made the ear cushions. I call these bad boys the Conquistadors.
I hope you guys like my creations and please give me some critiques and feedback on them. Also I will post the pics onto the thread as soon as the insert pic tool is working.
