I'm not exactly sure what recessed and non-recessed sockets look like in custom earphones so can someone please show pictures of both.
And which is better?
Images are attached below. Please excuse the photography we don't have access to a macro lens right now. We recommend recessed sockets as they are more secure and look nicer.
much easier said than done though... they're very small.
Diggin' out. Is there a possibility to buy a socket, this one in the IEM body? Or maybe I could make one from some kind of computer sockets for data tapes? I'm thinking about removable cables for my SM3v1.
If you don't plan on replacing cables, recessed sockets is a no brainer for protecting the pins of your cables.
If you may be replacing your cable, as the UM rep stated - UM recessed sockets does support a variety of aftermarket cables, but not all of them.
I am undecided about recessed sockets too. I choosed 4.A from Heir Audio but they dont offer recessed sockets and I am afraid that i will damage the pins or socket. Do you think sockets are durable enough for normal use? Is damaging the socket is difficult? Is my fear of damage justified? Thanks for any response
I am planning a TF10 reshell but retain the TF10 socket. Can I request a recessed socket?
The simplest solution would be to bend the pins towards center some, like it's done in the Europlug (the power supply one).
This helps quite a bit. Other than that, perhaps spring-loaded locking mechanism, but that's hard to implement, large and expensive.
