I have been lurking this thread for a while, and I decided to undertake making my own custom iems. I decided to use the Sonion 2091i, 2015, and 2389. I've managed to get all the other supplies I need, but I can't find anywhere to get Sonion drivers. I emailed Audiotronics and Colsonmicro, and neither one responded. I emailed Sonion too, but they told me that the only sell trays of 100 drivers. Does anybody know where the heck I can buy these drivers?

Sonion donot sell in small quantities, also their re-sellers will not sell one or two drivers. You should be looking for Knowles alternatives which can be bought from mouser. Or you can check here in sales section for IEM using sonion drivers.
Hello there everybody,
Just joined this forum so this is my first post. Having a great time reading about all sorts of stuff on here, but just wanted to ask a question.
I'm looking at making my own IEMs for a project, and i was wondering about the shure pin connectors which are these little guys here.. I thought about these as it would be easy enough to buy a shure cable instead of having to make one. If anyone has any other suggestions on cabling etc I would love to know the details,
I want to connect them to these little guys..
I thought I would put it to the forum to see what people think is the best way and to which pin etc, any information welcome, diagrams etc would be overwhelmingly helpful! Without sounding like a total novice (which I am!) Do i wire the drivers to the resistors and capacictors and then from the resistors and caps to the shure pin?
Thank you in advance!
Hello again everybody,
I'm just about to purchase some biopor AB40 clear silicon for the IEMs, it comes to £90 with VAT, and apparently it will make almost 80 moulds. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in going halves on it? As i definitely wont be needing that amount, so might make it cheaper for a few people out there looking to make some IEMs.
Let me know what y'all think?
hey guys, i was under the assumption that it just cured at room temperature? This is what ive read and been told, but perhaps they weren't overly informed. Do you guys have a suggestion on any other product i could use for the body of the shells?
This is a bit of info and techniques on biopor AB shore 40 that i'd be using
I think thats only the biopor HV (hot vulcanisation) which needs to cure for 15 hours overnight in hot cabinet. I'm looking at getting the biopor AB which is I don't think you need to put in hot cabinet, only if you're laquering with their product? - I think I'm right in saying this anyway!?
Is this the kinda product from egger you were saying about? COuldnt seem to find anything about the loctite resinaid
Cheers for your help guys. Let me know what you think about the Biopor AB
Biopor AB is addition curing silicone - it means that in one 48ml tube has two chambers - one with coloring concentrate and component A and second with component B. They mix together by using mixing canula and pressure injector. Before you waste your money on materials think if you're really able to use it as they were meant to.
These aren't UV curing silicone (I'm not sure if such thing even exists)
egger LP and Loctite are UV curing acrylic and that's quite big difference.
