Would you mind expanding on how you recable an IEM? I intend to do this on a pair I own and perhaps even on the 8320's. Thanks.

You can open the housing at the strain relief with a little pressure. The two sides of it are glued and it doesn't take much force.

Then you desolder the old cable from the driver ccontacts and solder your new cable on.

Some thread the old cable through the old strain and others use hestshrink or their preference. Close it up with some glue and your good.

Pretty easy but there are lots of ways to damage them if you aren't careful.

people talk about all types of mods, both including paint and foam. are there pics referencing each mod?
post #4054 of 4288

Foam mod, if you have double flange or longer tip just put a piece cut of foam inside, alternatively close the nozzle/mesh partially with tape or you can put fiber cloth between nozzle and tip, all has similar effect to damping the treble.

Thanks for the recommendation of the Comply T-400's. I'm pretty happy with them so far. The seal is better than the stock tips and the plastic housing doesn't seem to be hurting my ears as much I think because it's further away.

 it would depend on what you mean by fit. from my experience the monster tour tips are similar to the monster turbine tips

 

and yes they fit but they have too much of a narrow opening, while the opening of the earphones are positively huge it would really boost the bass (mid bass especially) and make the mids recessed

 

not that thats bad, just depends on your preferences. if your seeking linearity or neutral sound, no

 

but if you want more bass from them without using the tap mod (which i find muddies the sound a bit) sure! 

 

the ones i used were the single flange mushroom ones, the triple flange ones i have no idea. lost mines.

post #4058 of 4288

I believe they do. But I cannot know for sure. I'm basing this of the fact that both the Beats Tour, and the Monoprice 8320 use the same size Comply Foam Tips. Which, BTW, if you are looking for alternative tips, I suggest you go with these. They are great.

I just ordered them and I have tips from my old tours that's why I asked. Also, I ordered the silver ones I heard the newer black ones come with 3 pairs of tips as opposed to just one. True?

Actually ALL four colors, white, pink, silver, and black now come with 3 pairs of tips - it was only when the silver was the only available IEM that it only came in a single size.  Therefore it's best to choose which IEM to get based on other factors like rubberized cable vs fabric cable, clear vs black tips, or if one of them are on sale.

 

(to clarify, white & pink have rubberized cables and clear tips; silver & black have fabric cables with black tips.  I won't go into any more detail unless asked so that I don't sound biased)

Ok cool I wanted the fabric cable anyways. A lifehacker article said that the older silver ones only come with one sized tips so I asked.

Do these benefit from an amp? I have an e07k but I was thinking of selling it.. may keep it if they make these better.

I used it with my fiio e6, and i felt it helped with bumping up the bass i terms of fullness. The mids felt thicker (i personally prefer over the stock sound which made the mids seem thin)

But my biggest two gripes is that spike in the higher mids- lower treble. I dunno what it is but it seems to have a caverneous effect, the resonance prob.

And the treble actually felt fairly rolled off, u wont get fatigue from the treble for sure, which is good i guess. But it lacks treble energy imo. Its definitely the least emphasized in the sound sig

So I gotta brag a little here real quick. I bought 2 pairs of the 9927's, recabled them with some better quality wiring, and burned them both in. Currently, I use whichever pair I grab, paired with my FiiO E6 ( clipped on the back of my pants ) as a true in-ear setup for when I'm drumming. The E6 on the blue EQ setting, hooks into a Rolls Personal Monitor amp, which sends my mix from the board. With the whole setup, I'm incredibly happy. No more ear sweat from using the old on-ear cans, the IEM's sound AMAZING!, and overall, I'm very happy. I've had a couple musician friends try to tell me that there's no replacing a quality set of IEM'S from Shure, and while I did try theirs....Idk, for the price, I'm really liking these little butt-kicking gems!

Its great ur enjoying them especially taking advantage of their cheap price, but the one (non subjective component) the shure have over the monoprice is isolation. Im actually surprised u could drum with the monoprices, they really dont isolate, while the shure ensures that u dont have to turn it up very loud
