Long time lurker, first time poster.
I am in the process of designing a headset for which I will be 3D printing a majority of the components.
The major exception being the drivers. I've been having a heck of a time finding a place to buy them from. I've read through the other forum posts on this topic, and for the most part it looks like people have been resorting to buying off of ebay, or cannibalizing a built set of cans just for the components.
Searches using the term 'drivers' or 'headphone drivers' yeilded pretty minimal results, but the term 'micro speakers' has led me to better shopping results.
Most intriguingly I found a component supplier called Jameco Electronics. They have a section (Electromechanical > Electromechanical / Audio Components / Speakers) with a few speakers that look like they might fit the bill.
In particular a few caught my eye:
The site has a very specific parametric search function, so I can narrow down the ideal speaker by many factors such as Nominal Input Power, Frequency Range, Overall Dimensions, etc.
Anyone have any thoughts, or advice about the offerings of Jameco? Am I barking up the wrong tree here?
Also what is the ideal Nominal Input Power? Frequency Range? Impedance?
