IF you practice and mastering it, on the next step you can also make a retrofit driver. what is retrofit driver?
inspired from diy HID headlight on your car that need retrofitting.
A driver that mixed from several cans and usually using scrap, imagine that you can make a driver from broken headphone driver, with custom magnet, custom coil, custom membrane, etc. you can also make poor man zmf eikon or poor man HD650, with scrap material and true high impedance ( real 600 ohms? easy!!) . well dont just imagine it, i have made several of this headphone based on diy retrofit. maybe its feel ridlicious.. but its works and has a good sound.

Supporting these as alternative after sales service.
Since not all Brand had their representative in our country.

I hope all brand product company will see it as positive ways to help people restore their loved device.

Really impressed!
actually never success to do that by myself.

I think that you forgot to check the polarity.
I check if with DC voltage from AA battery and check if the membrane goes up, and mark the connection on + side of the battery with new red mark.

once I tried to return the magnet to one driver that I had some issues and discover that the polarity is changed.

If you solder this tiny wires again (or placing the magnet) you could change the polarity.
take attention about it.

great accurate work!
thanks for the video!

Really really amazed in what you have accomplished man. And it is also admirable that you have the heart to share your knowledge.

Aku jg Indonesian om Adi, living in Jakarta, hehe so cheers to that.

Love the video tutorial by the way, which I bet is not as easy as it looks. Getting all that in fame with proper focus must take effort.

However I do have one question om Adi. When you are going to solder the two tiny wires from the already extended voice coil, how do you know which one goes to + side and which one goes to - side? And is it okay if both wires touch each other before the solder point?
