Really wish I could say that. My C4's will probably be my first and last CIEMs I will ever get :D.

Yeah, I'm telling myself that as well. But I know sometime in the not-so-distant future my curiosity will get the best of me and I'll want to try something different. The good thing about CIEMs is that my bad habit of impulse buying on the net doesn't really work because I have to go to an audiologist first to get impressions. It's funny how once I go the custom route, universals just don't have the same appeal anymore.

The sound signature won't change in an audible way. The sound would be about 98-99% of what the original was in most cases from what I've been told, and I doubt that anyone would be able to pick out any real differences unless the reshell went really poorly.

 

 

     Not really, there are so many factors that influence the SQ.

 

  

     Tube length, tube I/D, Tube OD, thickness of tubeing, density of the materials, the glues used to adhere the tubering (gas released while drying) If the glue releases a lot of gas then it can clog the dampers

 

     Changeing to fresh dampers also changes the SQ, albeit back to the original sound, but it is still a change from the state that they were when originally bench tested at the re-shell lab.

 

 

     The bottom line, change does occur, and that is just physics at play.  Is this a bad thing?  I don't think so, but I have to give full disclosure as if the change is audible, then what is a manufacturer to do.....   claim the customer is wrong and what changes that did occur are not audible.....   and how do I prove that statement as well?   Reshell work has a potential to become a customer relations nightmare, so I felt it was best to give full disclosure. We also found that in a years time, we built about 2-4 reshells  so we decided to stop offering reshell service as well.

Removable cable with MMCX connector.


They are unique in two ways,

  1. the shells are not molded but machine made
  2. They have brass housing for dynamic IE8 driver with bass port.

Great points about reshells, but I really came here to drool over those stunningly beautiful works of art!  Amazing!

So, anyone who's had a custom paintjob on their CIEMs, do you reckon they'd be able to do this design easily? I only just quickly did it in paint. :/

lol that's rad. don't know if I'd want that in my ears all of the time though.

 

It probably depends on the company you choose. It'd be best to e-mail them the photo and ask.

Hahaha, yep, good idea. I've emailed the guys at JH.

Just realised your avatar is Finn. Glad there are other AT fans at Head-Fi! :D

Does anybody knows if Clear/Transparent CIEMs get dark/dirty with time?
