You might wanna check http://theheadphonelist.com

 

Joe, Joker and Jelt write at that website... I wouldn't say they publish a review every 5 minutes but from budget level to high end, you can always find something to read there.

This is a general CIEM question and so I thought it was best to post it here. I was wondering whether there are any safety issues with having extra long nozzles with a CIEM. For example, having the nozzles built as long as a triple flange tip for a universal IEM. Would it have any detrimental effect on sound? Thanks.

It will have an effect on the sound, whether it is a good one or bad one, that depends on the monitor and tuning I guess. Usually making the canals long in ciems bring the midrange more upfront but it is not a rule and it doesn't have to be this way all the time. Long story short, yes it will have an impact on the sound, the length of the canal is determined precisely according to the tuning and sound signature.

 

As for the health, well you would want to keep your membrane untouched I believe. I had several very long canal ciems, none of them became dangerous for me so surely the manufacturers know what they are doing.

Funny you ask, I was just showing someone else how deep mine go. 

 

Another way to look at it is that my musician fit CIEMs allow me to get great detail at lower volumes which is good for the ear. I am not sure that I would want it any other way. However, the ADEL module in the A12 definitely gave me confidence that I could turn it up without ear damage. So I guess it is how you use it as well.
