I like the idea of a vinyl tube as coupler but really, if you could find some sorbothane to hollow a path, that would likely be best. It probably has the most similar characteristics to human skin. Maybe something like these used back to back. They're on eBay.
I like the highs a little better in the new one but tend to prefer other aspects of the older version. More a sideways move unless you have a preference or want the enhanced bass version. I did notice the low end having a fluttering sort of distortion on elevated clean signal on certain material with the new version. Can't remember if both or just the XR. Not silly loud or sustained bass either. It was a Charlie Haden string bass run I know well. My buddy who made and...
This one's awesome. All good, all the time, cake and eat it too FW. It's stuff like this that lets you know who you're dealing with. Smart guys with ears. 
LOL. That's about the tenth time I've read that about an iem here. 
That's what anechoic chambers and speaker positioning/room control are about. Different ears do respond differently to input but they respond to that input in the same way every time so it's really not as important as often made out to be. We may not both hear flat the same way but we both interpret it the same way. Think in terms of target function. Your perception of live sound is skewed equally to your perception of a flat device so we both perceive linear the same even...
No, the Harmon curve is based on subjective compensation to make an earphone have a similar sounding response to linear sound or an actually live performance in real space. Nothing to do with favorites. If a speaker is linear sounding in a room, it's a fine source to compare and that's how engineers do their mixes. They also use less EQ than you may think and are more balancing tracks etc and getting the reverb right than EQ. I've heard a mic feed in the next room vs the...
I don't think it's that complicated in terms of record panning etc. It all sounds good enoiught o not worry me when things are pretty right. My JH13fps with twag v3 sound as close as anything except for a bit too much deep bass and by that I do mean below 50hz. I don't believe music needs to mixed for headphones because the timing dynamics and side to side localization holds up well enough if they are designed well. Headphones and earp   hones simply need to be made to...
I'm with Tyll on what sounds more correct. Correct is accurate and it doesn't necessarily mean flat response in an earphone. Even ET will bump up the mid and have some high roll in the target mix to sound linear. I personally don't think their target curve has enough low bass. Here's a simply test to take for yourselves if you so choose.   http://newt.phys.unsw.edu.au/jw/hearing.html    Even a flat bass response on this test may not sound quite 'accurate' to the music....
Be careful about who's around if you read that aloud.
