I have a pair of musician westone custom molded earplugs with the ER-9 button filters. The filters are removable and I was thinking I could turn these molds into a nice IEM. I tried plugging my CX300s into the molds but they didnt fit properly and didnt sound right. Is there a nice sounding off the shelf IEM that can seal properly to the button plug hole? It would be nice to use these as custom plugs as well as custom IEMs.

ACS have a pair of earphones that are designed to fit in place of the ER-9/15/25 filters.
Just be careful that you don't wear out the earmoulds because as you change filters more often the filter will be less strongly held by the moulds.Return HomeBack to Forum: Portable Headphones, Earphones and In-Ear Monitors
