It's acrylic so it's good to go. Acrylic is inert to skin.

  OK. I've completed another set of CIEMs. Basically they are clear acrylic shells with Astrotec AX35 monitors in them. If you didn't know, the Astrotecs are affordable ($70) hybrid monitors with a dynamic speaker for the low spectrum and a balanced armature for the highs. Sound-wise, they are much better than my Sennheiser IE-4 and my Knowles dual driver designs. The Astrotecs are physically a bit large in the shell but I made it work. The dynamic speaker is much more suited for the lows and it really shines in the CIEM shells.

  So I did some experimenting with the different UV acrylics I've used and here's my verdict. The $5 nail salon stuff from Ebay looks, smells, flows, and cures just like the expensive Loctite stuff. That's what I'll use from now on. So total cost of the best CIEMs I have; less than $80.

Astrotec officials say the AX-35 uses the ED-29689...

Oh then its a steal at that price.

post #1661 of 6058

It's a good thing they didn't use the ED-209 drivers.

Yes. 4mm-2mm shrink tubing in place of the rubber earpieces.

After a long time in development, my latest IEMs are done.


5 drivers per ear (CI,DTEC and TWFK), with an external battery powered, 3-way, 4th order active crossover system feeding them. Simply amazing sound, easily rivals some of my high quality full sized cans.

Great work!!! did you design the crossover your self or is off shelf.
