IEMs reshelled into Custom Molds $80 in the USA (TripleFi 10, SE530, etc.) from FISHER HEARING - Page 189

post #2821 of 2824

That is the reason I'm asking for some advice.  I would like to know if anyone knows if these drivers would get along together.  I called Shure to find out if I could get a connector so that I can use my 530s with an up to date cable by just adding a connector to the wire (so I can use them the way they were designed).  What do you think their response was........  Sorry pal, we don't allow other people to get what they want, if you want to do that you have to either pay another $250 to exchange them for 535s, or re-shell on my own.  

 

I guess that $150-$200 to get customs as I want wouldn't be too much. 

 

I would still like to know if anyone knows if the 530s, and 325s, or 215s would be compatible.

No one can really answer that question for you, as more than likely the drivers used are proprietary. Due to that, impedance values, and frequency responses are not open to the public. With a lot of investigation and testing those answers could be found but of course that would take time, experience and expensive testing equiplment.....  

 

After testing and once the answers are established, the next step would be to formulate a x-over network and wireing method to make the drivers work together in a coherent fashion. (that requires time, experience, and equipment)

 

Once that is done, then they would be assembled and tested....   (that again requires time, experience and equipment)

 

I'd opt for spending 250$ rather than a "shot in the dark"  on some used drivers.  At least then you have a new product, and an IEM that is designed to work cohesivley. 

 

The reality is, you have a hand full of drivers.....   much like haveing a pile of bricks.....   it takes a lot more than a pile of bricks to build a home.

I regret reshelling my SE530. I should have just recabled it. It lost its unique signature and became bit bright.
