Review: Fischer Audio's DBA-02 - Page 294

post #4396 of 4469

O crap. I accidentally removed the filter... now it sounds treble happy :P

3M tape to the rescue...

I think the Etymotic filters may fit and who knows, it may sound even better with them.

^Thanks for the heads-up, very interesting.

I'm now intrigued. You're talking about the green ones in the ER4 right?

FA representative said on local forum that cable would be the same as in Oldskool'70 model, and overall sound signature could be a bit less bright due to different body size

Drivers and filters are the same



Hi.

What do you mean by filters?Where are there?(I have the MkI as well).

Theodore.

There is a porous filter placed in front of the BA unit inside the housings. You can't see it, but it's there. You can try to see it by shining a flashlight down the sound tube and see if you can catch a glimpse of the metal ring that houses the filters.

Thx.

@tomscy, how 'porous' is it? I noticed that the original filter has some tiny holes in it when I put it against the light. I can count something like 4 holes. BTW, the 3M micropore tape is doing a great job as replacement. Something we use in the Fostex threadbiggrin.gif

Er, I didn't really check. I haven't taken it out since I last did a major cleanup of the sound tube a couple months ago. Interesting that Micropore works...

I'm choosing between micropore and foam. The micropore sounds like its letting more treble out - and thats one layer applied on the nozzle.

post #4406 of 4469

Etymotic supposedly put a lot of thought into their green filters to get an accurate treble for their models. I have always wondered how it will sound with other BAs, but just haven't tested it, should fit any small nozzle BAs, just haven't tried. Been thinking about placing one on the heavily damped Klipsch X10. 

post #4407 of 4469

I'm pretty sure the outer diameter of the nozzle on the DBA is bigger than it is on the Etys.  Unless the wall of the nozzle on the DBA is thicker, I'd think Ety filters would be a bit loose in the nozzle.

I could be wrong but I thought the DBA tube was larger than the Ety/Klipsch type nozzles.

I think the tube may be thicker, but the diameter of the nozzle's opening is the same. Same applies to the X10, could be wrong here too though, I am going by memory.

I used an angled neutrik plug. Pretty straight forward. Loving the quality of the new plug. Feels like a new IEM. Need to practice on my soldering skills though, Next time I will shoot at a recabling job :)

I used some wire insulation pulled over the DBA cable for the internal crimp and to act as the strain relief. Right angle is also available and doesn't require anything over the cable as strain relief. Both are relatively easy to solder.
