copypasted (if anyone else is interested):

 

 

 

Relatively easy to build (but requires a lot of patience). Mine outperformed HD800S and LCD3-F.

Driver photo: https://imgur.com/a/VHongnG

 

I used 3d printed driver, one pair of 40x5x10 n52 magnets per each driver, m2 screws, and foil from the soviet KBG capacitor. Width is about: 14-15mm. The foil should be very thin. PCB parts to hold the foil. No modifications to AT headphones needed. Drivers can be glued to it using a glue gun. Any open AT headphones may work. 500/700/900. AT 500 is the cheapest one.

 

The trickiest part is to overcome clanking sounds. It may happen because of bad ribbon positioning or if the ribbon touches magnets. I spend more than one hour trying to align it properly. Sweep tone is not really helpful in finding clanks. Perfect debugging song for me is: "Mayday - Burn"

 

I connected headphones to the speaker amplifier through 10 Ohm 5W load resistors. Don't connect ribbon headphones to amplifier directly. It may damage it

 

 

 

From a listening experience point of view - ribbon headphones more detailed compared to hd800s. it feels like you watching something in a microscope. more micro details. quiet sounds started being more noticeable. bass is the weakest thing in hd800(s) (even with eq). I preferred lcd3's bass. ribbon headphones can produce bass even better than lcd3. I'm not a bass-head, but ribbon can give speaker quality bass. after I made ribbon headphones I decided to keep hd800s/lcd3 for 6 months+ to compare them later. i compared and i wasn't impressed. so i sold them both

 

I had bryston bha-1 (sold) and still have mytek-192 DSD DAC. so I would say I have(had) good enough equipment to catch the difference.

 

in terms of soundstage, I would say that ribbon headphones better than hd800s. I use speaker amplifier to drive speakers and ribbon headphones. sometimes when I start watching the video I may think that sound comes from speakers even if it goes from my headphones.

a vacant lot i pass everyday that has signs saying "no signs allowed"

 

 

I think deaf people would be entitled to be offended. If nothing else, that sign is against the law because Signing is an official language of NZ - and that means anyone can sign wherever they like.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Very good point.  Imagine the outrage if someone put a notice up: "no Te Reo allowed" 😜

A pair of headphones (that I had tried to sell here on GZ earlier in the week) sold on TM at about 2 pm yesterday. I had the payment in my account at 4 pm. Took them to the small local Post Shop (Auckland North Shore) and mailed them by ordinary parcel post at 4:30 pm - packed in a shoe-box.

 

They were delivered to a suburban residential address in Wellington at 11:31 this morning. 

 

Not bad, NZ Post.

You probably had the address right.

 

Had one customer who always complained about the courier taking 2 days to get to them. Turns out they gave us the wrong suburb and refused to admit that because their actual one was less posh. So told them that they either keep getting delayed or we put the right suburb on the parcels.

Mean full face helmet, black goggles and a hot leather jacket and you're in business.

As a kid, and still as an adult, marmite, cheese and chip (crisp) sandwiches have a special place in puku.

Loved the article.
