Are you connecting directly to your dap?
Yeah i think the build is good. and if I put them in a "certain way" (i still have to master the technique) I get an awesome seal that blocks out a lot of noise. its just it feels like when they are in and im listening to music something is blocking the sound transfer, and that is why i think its because i am sick because my ears are congested. I just have to wait until im better, this sucks. Also the balance was more in the middle when I was listening to them, so I don't think anything is wrong with the drivers etc. I hope I didn't take anything out I wasn't supposed to because when I did sweeps with the earwax tools I got some white cotton stuff..
no im not connecting directly to my DAP, when i do, i hear hiss, but when i turn the volume up higher to hear the sound I don't notice the hiss. I am using my MisterX Mini^3 amp... definitely gives me better volume control in the low end.
