It's not that bad, flexible triflange beats the stiff DBA-02 nozzles for comfort by a long shot.
Purchased from Amazon warehouse a couple months ago without signs of use. Hardly any use from me. Box and accessories included.   $110 shipped   SOLD
 I'm not sure how you managed to see that from what I said. Manufacturers ought to be interested in what people want to hear. Bass frequencies don't just build up, they are low frequency standing waves that produce constructive and destructive interference corresponding to many dips and peaks. To answer the bit about anechoic chambers, yes and no. It would be beneficial for low frequency consistency and be free of comb filtering and reverberation smear, but the low level...
You mean if you correct it to listener preferences of more bass than treble. It turns out listeners don't like a flat measured response from speakers or headphones, which isn't a new observation. The latest target from Harman's research has the listener preference of added bass/reduced treble included.
The ER4S is measured as flatter and more accurate than the GR07 in the bass. ER4S with the good seal has small bass roll below 100Hz and -2 to -3 dB at 20 Hz.
+0db is setting the bass knob as far counterclockwise as possible, to 7 o'clock. Some people leave it around noon, but that's not the "accurate" setting.
How many flanges in the triflange should go past the second bend?
I had to glue my RE-400 together, and it works now as it did before. Be careful to avoid the vents when applying the glue. Seal it up the jack hole airtight with glue to avoid air leaking from the rear cavity, which would result in a loss of bass.
You could roughly mark the peaks that way with good placement, but there's no way the magnitude would ever make sense. Balanced armatures are too reactive for that. Free air measurements wouldn't say much of anything about an IEM, besides some bits about ultrasonic extension, but I've certainly seen people try with over-ear and on-ear headphones. Pinna-free plates do seems more consistent than HATS, manufacturers seem to prefer them in QC AFAIK. I still don't see how you...
Are you performing a free air measurement with the IEM and the mic? That doesn't take into consideration the reactive load of the ear canal and of the driver. The results won't just be a simple difference in level between different IEM designs. Doubt even a relative comparison would hold water.   Personally, Layla's bass seemed right enough at 7 o'clock, but I had some issue with high midrange unevenness.
