how to get rid of annoying ringing sound on IEMs?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

I've noticed with piano sounds, it sound like ringing or like echoing.  Resonance?  I have 1964-T customs and I hate when it happen, it messes up the music.  Poorly tuned?  I've noticed this with SM3, and got rid of it because of this.  I don't think I can do anything with the customs to fix, but with universals?  Why does it do that?  Is it because wave reflection?  Open air like HD650 is a solution for that? I've had EX-1000, and it's not isolated fully, and sounded very good, would that help prevent such ringing sound?  Would this be the benefits to listening to music with buds?

you sure it's not a issue from your source(s) or amp(s)?  Could the amp be too powerful for low impedance IEMs?

If you think that, please explain how an amp would cause ringing please.

how to get rid of annoying ringing sound on IEMs?

 

Easy one this :-) .

  • Put on some safety Goggles
  • Place the annoying ringing IEM & place it on a hard surface .
  • Take a Large hammer ( Or a brick will do ) and smash the IEM to tiny little Bits .
  • Buy a Earsonic SM3 IEM

 

Problem over !

 

Glad to be of Assistance ksc75smile.gif

 

On a serious note.If your noticing ringing with many different IEM's that it's not the IEM's that are the source of the ringing .

Just try out some different combinations of audio equipment until you locate the actual source of the ringing .

Thanks L3000.gif  you could stop listening to piano's ? .

 

Have you tried listening to a actual live piano?

 

If the ringing is still bothering you with a live piano maybe your just being hyper sensitive to some natural sound that is stronger with pianos . Since they are wood and string they do have allot of ringing resonance .

Just take it easy and give your ears a rest . If the ringing continues seek medical advice, it could be something as simple as a Cold or ear wax .

It's not my ears, my state of health is 110%.  It's def the customs.  Universals don't do that except SM3, which I got rid of.  By the way, are you a Nazi or a Communist?  Just by the way you come up with solutions, I have to assume you are either.wink.gif                                                                                          I'm joking of course.

Actually, if you Google irony, its in an American dictionary.  :)  Also, a forum is not the best place to use irony.popcorn.gif  
 

By the way, I was just joking on my last post.  I knew you weren't serious.
