G'day...New member, long time user. Instant vintage collection.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just joined today. I've been into audio both music and the science behind reproducing it since I can remember. I now work as an audio and communications engineer and technical manager. I found a draw the other day of rubbish spare part headphone parts from yesteryear so I decided to see if I could frankinstien me up some decent cans without spending anything just with what could find. Here's what I got.... the draw of death.
new hd250 linear ii on hd475 band with dt770 pads.
hd480 mkii new drivers on a 450 band with random yellow pads that barely fit and a beyer band pad.
hd430
mic soc cut in half...
makes great substitute pads for the hd430.
hd450 before.hd450 after.hd450 with akg171 pads. Also I had no cables for these so I used some solid cover wire the right gage as extended pins, glued onto the hole then soldered and heat shrunk. You can still change the driver internally but the cable is a keeper;)

Anyway that will do for now, I'd just like to say thank you for all the great information and suggestions/recommendations available here.

How about an air filtration system? You could likely save Tom Hanks with that lot.. :o

Unfortunately the amount of ear scum on these old cans would result in an air pollution system and tom would have died;)
