I dont think anyone has Information on specification of these Drivers so no one can help you with crossover.

Hi, I'm Japanese CIEM-DIYer & I always consult with this DIY thread.

 

BTW, XBA-4 has unique divers made by SONY, so it is hard even for DIYer to help you.

I think XBA doesn't have any crossover. It makes its sound by arrangement of BA drivers.

So it's very hard to sustain its original sound if you take out its drivers from shell.

Hello!

 

Yep, XBA line does not use a crossover... It's my first IEM and was thinking of reshelling it...now it doesn't seem like a good idea! The 8 Ohm impedance can be annoying sometimes... Like really...

Question: How many "otoplastik" firms are there anyway? Dreve, Egger, 3M, Heba... I'm sure I'm missing companies... what are the pros/cons of each?

Just a quick post here for some much-needed advice/suggestions ....

 

I have a pair of Shure SE-530 in disassembled condition, as shown here (not my image, but looks same)

(They were taken apart in order to replace that infamous "dry-rotting" Shure cable [see H-F archives for more on this]). The body/shell was carefully split--as shown above -- to expose their innards. That was some time ago as this is not an easy project -- one issue is finding proper replacement cable -- so the these Shure's remain in pieces in Ziplocks awaiting some disposition or disposal.

 

I could salvage the the SE530 in some interesting/skill-building/fun DIY fashion some of you may suggest ... Please!

 

Soundwise, I never cared for the SE530 after I acquired Senn IE-8, ES SM3v2 and ER-4s, so them sitting in pieces is not a big deal ... unless there is some DIY use for them that ALSO improves the SQ over the SE530/535 series. Speaking of which, any chance these could be sold for parts? Suggestions for that are welcome, too.

 

Thx!!

Does anyone have a good source for UV-Cured Acrylic Resin? Would like to get some but it's hard to find the right one since there are so many out there.
post #1544 of 1662

Thx for that info...but I want to take the shortest route: re-solder in new cables. I was thinking: cheap (but decent) WalMart IEMs or buds (e.g., Sony) ... snip off the drivers. The only concern is re-assembling the two-piece shell. Not sure what resin or glue held it together. I've read other's post how good a job Shure does with "resining in", and I had to undo much of that during disassembly. Also, and importantly, there is the final acoustic seal ... it seems to be acoustic suspension, and not ported or reflex. Dunno how common port/reflex design is for BA IEMs?????

Sony uses a mechanical crossover for the drivers. Each of its drivers are only designed to produce a specific range of frequencies.
