Beyer M380 spare capsule

Post by frans_13 » Mon Oct 14, 2019 7:49 am

Hi, i got a spare capsule around that would be good as a replacement part for a dead M380. Beyer made these capsules until the late 80s, they were used in certain headphones as drivers and (with a humbucking coil added) as mic capsule in the M380. A few years ago i went down the rabbit hole and checked out various headphones from that era, to see which capsules were identical. Most of these old headphone capsules had dirt/hair on the slightly sticky membrane and were buzzing, another percentage died the well known sudden death of M380s. I get old and clear my workshop, digging up parts i had forgotten about. Greg from Electrical audio got two, another two went elsewhere and now i think there's just one left - so if somebody needs a spare part, let me know. The next few days i'll take it to test it with loud and low sinewaves to check for buzz. (dirt in the magnet gap)
