    I just spent the night enjoying music (dozing on & off in my recliner), using my version of the DIY Beryllium 600Ω Earbuds -

    I ordered them from Chitty's store. But it's not the only Aliexpress source: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32910917383.html

    Mine came from Chitty's Store, as well.
    Their sound is really quite special.
    To me, they're a bit like a cross between the K's K600 and the Smabat ST-10.
    (Off-Topic - I've ordered a set of 10mm Beryllium drivers, and some Cherry wood housings w/MMCX, to assemble some new $78.38 earphones.)

    You mean these ones, David: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32766220304.html?
    Keep us posted! If they are those, I had my eye on those very drivers as well. I was unsure how to mount them as an earbud though; it seems most of the 10mm driver shells are more on the lines of an IEM casing, such as this one: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32507926085.html. Still, I'm looking forward to hearing how they come out; I'm currently building a CIEM using Knowles BA drivers; a dynamic IEM would be amazing!

    Yes, that's the driver.
    I contacted the seller (as noted in the description of the driver), and asked if it would fit & sound good in this housing - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/10mm-earphone-shell-Cherry-wood-mmcx-pin-pluggable/32787946986.html
    They said "Yes", so I ordered the drivers & housings.

    It seems Chitty is also stocking 10mm biocellulose drivers: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32765713539.html They're expensive, but I'm considering taking the plunge. Not sure how they would compare to the beryllium drivers though. Any thoughts?
  8. DBaldock9
    I know that @HungryPanda has assembled some earbuds, or earphones, using some biocellulose drivers - but I haven't tried any yet.

    How can I resist to click the buy button when quoting such references?!! :D
    I will buy one pair tonight
    Thanks guys :)

    Always happy dealing with Chitty's store, just received my 3 pairs of white Yuin shells, they have been incredibly well packaged for just basic shells, very appreciated.

    In my last batch of items from Chitty's store there were a pair tiny iems with 6mm drivers already in the front part of shell, cabled them up and glued together, the sound pretty good (a very interesting freebie)

    Where can I get these shells ?

    I finally decided to not buy the beryllium drivers and buy instead the "15mm speaker unit 78ohms" too, and another pair of new 150 ohms 15.4mm drivers.
    Can't wait to receive them :D

    Very sorry my post was misleading. This is the K's Black Ling. Not a diy earbud. So i don't know if you can buy this shell type separately. I wish it was sold for diy projects because it has a perfect fit with thin foams, as comfortable as pk shell but more weighty.

    There is however something similar like this

    If you weren't across the ocean, with the correspondingly high mailing costs, I'd send you my set to try, so you can see how good the 600-Ohm Beryllium drivers sound. :ksc75smile:
