I think it has to do with the Fit. I think the irritation had an effect on sonic perception. Just like how soundstage changes with different tips on an universal IEM. I think my ears have settled and got used to customs now
Here's an update
The irritation has subsided, I've been alternating these with my TF10x6 by UM.
I find that the highs are less fatigueing but it sounds more like the PFE that I use to have but with a wider sound stage and better isolation. I went back and forth with the filters and stuck with the Grey filters.
I would suggest the remold to those who have a cracked PFE (known defect). I can move around quite a bit without breaking the seal on these.
Got my TF10x6
definitely a good step up from the TF10, the sound stage is what hit me first, it was wider than stock. The mids are so much more intimate and detailed, Bass is more Dynamic. Well worth the $$.. I'm using an Oyaide Cable with mine.
I think I managed to get the fit right, but I'll give it another few days to test.
For some reason, I find the sound brighter than what it was before. Not sure if it's the new Nexus 5 that I'm using as the source, Fiio RC WT1 Cable or the reshelled IEMs. It has gotten really fatigueing for my ears on certain songs and I'll be trying out the black filters again and see how that works out. It's a good thing that InEarz didn't make the filters permanent.
Listening to my remolded PFE111 as I'm typing.
I'm really surprised at how they kept the acoustic filters interchangeable, so kudos to them for making it work. I was expecting them to permanently mold the filters inside.
Sound wise, it still has that nice mid range the PFE offers with the grey filters. The soundstage seem to have gotten a bit narrower though.
Seal is great, fit and finish is awesome.
I have a slight irritation with my right ear, so I'll...
they are ready for shipping
Can't wait to receive them, they look amazing from the pics (from their facebook), InEarz have came a long way and I can say their finish and shine rivals other top tier CIEM manufacturers. I'll post impressions of them as soon as I receive them.
I sent my PFE111 for remold and they are complete. Just waiting for having them shipped back.
I asked Kaysen on whether they can do PFEs and for sure they can. They will also permanently mold the acoustic filter into the shell.
I appreciate your reply. Do you have an associate in China right now that I can contact? I'm heading to Shanghai in two days and would like to get the order rolling. I'll be doing my impressions in Shanghai and will be shipping from there.
If you don't mind, please take a few minutes to take a look at the email I sent you.
