You can't suck at modding. Modding just require creativity and logic! No special skills!
Lol. I forgot about soldering. Soldering does require bit of skill. I burned myself couple times while trying to reterminate cables, but it wasn't hard.
But creativity is key!
For new modders, here are couple things that can be easily modded:
Foam(back of the driver)
Cable(requires bit of soldering)
I can never get the solder to stick on the cable! It's such a delicate job.
I was successful at soldering a headphone project once, but just once (and even that was pretty messy).
Lol. For my first project, I had two helpers! A friend and a science teacher. The science teacher pretty much ended up reterminating my headphones. But than, I managed to solder by myself with my next retermination.
The first time I ever soldered was in an engineering class, and I swear I had at least a dozen burns a day.
EDIT: We might want to get back on topic before the inevitable Currawong swoop.
Opps. Currawong is going to take us down!
Anyways, back on topic.
I encountered SE215! My first audiophile iem! I got a chance to try them again, and I still love them. Apparently, the owner of SE215 knows lots of audiophiles in Singapore.
