-Drilling hole = in the faceplates not the earphones

-aftermarket basic components?

 

It's just an idea, that's it lol

So, just in back and forth discussions with Aurisonics I think some of you wanting to unscrew and take apart the ASG-1 should slow your horses. It's one thing for the professional manufacturers and producers of the product to open it up and do whatever, and another for amateurs to do the same. Modifications probably should wait as Aurisonics is promising a barrage of custom options one can choose from and or have  made special for the individual IEMs. Screws can strip and the parts can break if not handled with care. This could void your warranty and any deal you might have been entitled to with an upgrade. Just something to think about fellas (and ladies)...

I mean it's not a horrible idea in principal, but you have to know the likely consequences of what you are doing.

 

If your IEMs fail for some reason, and you send them back with custom faceplates and different screws, they are probably going to send you an e-mail asking you to paypal them the money to ship it straight back. That would be my guess, anyways.

If I'm the manufacturer and you've obviously done something outside the boundaries of normal use (i.e. unscrewed anything or drilled holes), I'm not honoring any kind of warranty whatsoever.  Why should I?  You've obviously done some tampering with the phones, why should I think you haven't done anything more than what I can easily see?

 

Just sayin'...

Exactly. A drop of sweat or some sand or whatever could get in there easily, either during the replacement, or if the plates weren't screwed on tight enough, or...I mean, who could even know? I deal with product warranties every day at my job, and usually the gist is, if you've physically altered or replaced parts of a product, the warranty is definitely void.

Do you need ear impressions for the universal version?

      So, I'll stay with the generic tips.

Does anyone else have a hard time opening the otterbox case for the ASG-1?  This case is hardcore...it's nice that my headphones are protected, but it's a bit overkill.  I mean, I generally don't lose sleep at night over whether or not my IEM's will survive should an earthquake/tsunami/nuclear apocalypse happen, but if I did, I wouldn't as long as they're stored in this case.

post #868 of 2761

Hahahaha! Better safe than sorry! :P

 

Some people have pets, children, younger siblings, roommates...nice things should be protected.

I love otterboxes and pelican boxes.  my worrier/obsessive nature likes protection overkill.
of note, when i shipped my ear impressions to Heir Audio in China, I put foam peanuts in the audiologist's little cardboard box to cushion the impressions, then put this box inside a metal mini-loaf pan, then put this inside a thick cardboard box, then put this in the shipping box, which was about 1 cubic foot, stuffed with air pillows.
