Thanks, Jant71. That indeed sounds rather risky and non-reversible. I guess that procedure should give about the same results as running the Phonak PFE without any filters - increase in sibilance, etc.
Just curious what people are doing to their SM3s - me, I'm perfectly happy with their sound (and Alpine double flange tips).
Deadhead12, a blast from the past... can't even remember my SE530 review.
As Photo1986 (the original modder) has stated, this mod is fully reversible. Though a screwdriver is great, you can use something as simple as a mechanical pencil. You can just pop the filters back in place if you don't like the change. I don't know about other people, but I think this mod is a kind of reversible version of the Kramer's Mod (with different SQ changes).
