Ultimate Ears flip-flop mod (please help)

post #1 of 74
Thread Starter 
I searched for (and found) the thread on the ultimate ears flip-flop mod. The only problem is that the first post is so old that the picture isn't there any more. Could someone please explain to me how to do it and post a picture? Thanks

Basically, unplug the connectors from the earpieces, and put them on the earpiece on other side. There's a (tiny) notch on the plug and the body that denotes the correct way to plug them in, so that they're in phase. You'll need to bend the memory wire in the opposite direction, to fit around your ear, and yer done.

Personally, I do not recommend the FS mod, since I think that it messes up the sound quality of the Super.fis.

you're welcome!

The downside to me
1. if you mess up the pin connection, it'll sound weird.
2. UE logo is no longer visible when wearing.
3. to some ppl. this mod doesn't work well at all.

How so?

When you flip the sides each driver will be angled differently into your ear than it was originally. Personally, I didn't notice much of a change (for better or worse), but on paper it will affect the sound you hear.

But I wouldn't necessarily listen to anyone that says they like it better or hate it. Give it a shot and if YOU like it better, then keep it that way. If you don't like it for some reason, you can switch it back in a couple seconds anyway.

I think I need some clarification on this; whats the deal with having to swap the cables? Is this not just putting the 'phones in opposite ears?
post #10 of 74
Because then your left and right audio will be swapped.

yeah I just tried it without swapping the cables I get it now

In regards to number 1: does that do any damage? Or does it just sound weird until you connect it the right way

Should the L and R marks look inwards or outwards when the earpieces are flipped?
post #14 of 74
I still don't understand. Sorry, not a native english speaker.
I put the right driver on the left wire, and vice-versa. L and R on the wires are looking inwards. Is it correct?

I tried this mod when I had the Triple Fi's, didn't care for it personally.
Unless I'm understanding it wrong, it reverses the channels, so the soundstage is completely different, and not in a good way.
