How is driver flex "good" or "bad"? From my limited experience it seems to be either present or not present. The stock Philips SHE3580 do not have driver flex because of the vent in front of the driver. After I tried sealing a pair with superglue I get driver flex whenever I achieve an airtight seal with the tips; I need to pull on the ear with one hand while inserting with the other to avoid flex on insertion and after insertion, I know I have a tight seal if I get flex by pressing slightly the bud slightly in. I assume this is a "bad" case of flex? What would a "good" (but not nonexistent) case of flex be like?
My Turbines right side flexes so bad if I crank them past a certain volume it pops everytime, and always when inserting them to a point the sound goes muffled. I either then need to lower the volume or re-seat them. I think they had a hard life.
