That's exactly what I was predicting you would say. See if you can clear the hole out with a pin or something

Tried...unfortunately, the epoxy got too deep in and I can't find any pin tiny enough for the vent hole.

Anyway, I am still very happy with the sound ;)

I will probably just leave it, may be do the re-cable again another times....if it fails the next time :biggrin:

I had finally grabbed a Classic not too long ago, intending them to be a backup for the MKIIs, which is probably the IEM I listen to at home most frequently (a close second would be the Titans). Plus, they were Maroon! I love maroon!

 

I had even considered cracking the MKIIs open a while back, to play with damping out that 6k resonance, and using the Classics as a reference to the stock sound. It looks like I might need to reconsider, and prioritize their longevity. As well as stock up on more Classics.

 

It'd be neat if someone with the know-how and the equipment could do a comparative stress anaylsis of the plastics used between the two, to confirm that the plastics on the Classics are indeed of a lesser quality.

I had considered Twaron Angel Hair (a friend had recently passed along a bunch). Right now I use a liberal dose of corrective EQ in order to have them listenable up top, but when I do, it makes it very difficult to listen to much else. This is compounded by the fact that the adjustable nozzles are one of the only ways that I can get past the sharp bend in my right ear, that is comparable to my customs in terms of comfort (foam tips are generally also an option there, but not all IEMs sound good with those).

 

Back to the sound; when the distractions are EQed out, there's just a wonderful level of transparency (clarity, detail) in the midrange, that manages to avoid using weird tricks in order to pull it off (FR bumps to enhance clarity, treble boost, whatever). There are other dynamics that do so similarly, but it all falls back to the comfort thing. Oh, and the bass is wonderful-sounding as well. Sure, it's a bit limited in terms of space, but I feel like people these days manage to convince themselves of anything for the sake of a larger "stage". Come on. They're IEMs. Be more honest with yourselves. I enjoy my Titans a whole bunch, but it certainly isn't because they have "HD800-like soundstaging". Some of the hyperbole when it comes to describing imaging and staging comes closer to a bad piece of Twilight fanfiction at best, and at worst, a thesis on the metaphysical implications of seasonal McRibs from an aspiring English Literature doctorate.

I dont think damping at the back will affect the 6k peak. Also there is no space there. You might want to try some reversible mod at the nozzle side.

You can put in a lot of Angel hair per volume, a small dab should fit fine. While it might not target the 6k ringing specifically, it'd probably damp a bit of the treble overall. Filters would probably do similar, but just think it would be neat to try, since they already had it open.
