Try the clear nail polish. Might be a little cleaner :P. Just don't get it into socket. Light coats on the side walls of the inner housing. Or better yet cut out small pieces of scotch tape and angle it inside. The Ref 1's I have seem to be rather tight fitting so no need to do it yet. I won't be changing out cables really so I don't think it will be an issue for me.
I haven't heard them. They do sound intriguing from what I'm reading. The Ref 1 is a bass heavy IEM and hits the deepest I've heard any IEM before. It has a ton of authority to it. If you are looking for more neutral bass the 1Plus2 would be more along those lines (I still consider it to be the best in terms of quality/control). I think the 1Plus2 portrays an accurate out of head sound staging with great clarity and imaging (there really aren't many IEMs that do that at...
lol sorry just being realistic. Although there is a chance someone will give him a demo. Not a very big one though... I'd wager the Ref. 1 would be a pretty substantial upgrade from the IEMs I see in his profile ;)...
lol good luck with that. Depending on where you are located you could be sh*t out of luck...
 I wouldn't worry about using it for this purpose. I'm sure you are fine either way. But I notice the X5 gets pretty hot while using it as a DAP and playing music while charging. I don't really know about the DAC function as I use my DACport LX over it. I just use it as a DAP.
I have to agree with you on this. Using a device while it is charging is really not good for the battery. It generates more heat which in turn can have an impact on other components in the device. I've still done this before though to speed up burn in of my IEMs....
 Then you might be in for a treat. Looking forward to your impressions. But keep in mind my 1Plus2 changed quite a bit before settling in. Even sounded worse during part of the burn in lol. The Ref 1 may very well be the same.
 I don't know. Then again I didn't use silver cable with the Tera, maybe that was the problem. I was using gold cable (might have tested with uber also). I didn't like the Tera and 1Plus2 pairing. I thought it sounded off especially in the mids... But it was a match made in heaven with SE5 for some reason... That's what gave me second thoughts about purchasing one. The Studio V 3rd ANV and 1Plus2 on old silver cable sounded superb. Also 1Plus2 with Spiral Dot tips on AK120...
 I'm a bit confused myself. But with 1Plus2 it is an IEM I would have to listen to at a lower volume than my other IEMs as it will get fatiguing. But the same applied to the AKG3003 and MDR-7550. I think it's in large part due to the volumes we listen at. They sound best to me @ medium to low volumes. Then again I think it is a good idea to do that with most of our IEMs anyways for our hearing's sake ;).
I'm currently using the large Grey TF10 silicone flanges to great effect. Gives a great seal without a vacuum seal. I am listening to Rob Zombie live and it sounds really good. Very realistic like you are there. Wyd4 if you are listening to live music or music with good dynamic range I think you will really like the Ref. 1. Just getting a good seal (as in not too tight or too loose) is the key.
