Day 6 of thing of the day

Posted by JFunk on 15/08/2015 in Gallery, Special projects, Uncategorized |

After learning a lot from the first pair of resto modded vintage headphones I have kicked it up a notch and done a better job on this pair. I have gone for much more expensive high end drivers and made custom laser cut wooden baffles and a pad adapter to fit the more comfortable HD25 pads
The drivers are 40mm with wool fibers in the cone and neo magnets so pretty fancy. I also made custom wire mesh grills to protec the cones and give it a bit more of a steampunk look 🙂

Then I re-cabled the headphones with a nice vintage looking headphone cable and tested to make sure the drivers fit with the adapter

Then they are all held together with hot glue and attach a wide body rean jack to finish the look

The drivers are 32ohm so work great with portable stereos and phones. I will test them over the next few days and if all goes well it may be time to start selling them
