Scott's Headphone Museum Gallery
These are more old headphones from the 1920's that
are on display from my collection, starting with the letter "S".
These are for display only, not for sale. To see my

Crystal Radios where I have a page of Headphones
Stormberg Carlson 2-A

Spartan, uncommon headset with brown bakelite housings and nice
real leather covered headband, 2200 ohms DC resistance.

A lot of headphones were marked "Navy Type", or "Army Navy" to
give the impression of military specification quality when they
were really just ordinary consumer grade products.
Solid Pat Aug 14,
1000 ohms per side, 2000 ohms total
The Little Spitfire and Superette headphones are cheap comsumer
grade headphones. Most of the sets I have found have open circuit
coils. Having unwound several of the coils, they have all been open
at the innermost winding of the ciol where the fine wire meets a
heavier connecting wire. They are greenish looking like an acid flux
was used that corroded through the wire. Anyway, if you are buying
wither of these, or The Scientific Navy Type, they are likely to be
dead due to open coils.
