It's a Reshell and 3 drivers upgrade from Unique Melody. Since they said they've never see this headphone before, I have to tell them which driver(s) it was (TWFK x2) and how I want it to be upgraded. I basically tell them I want Knowles CI-22955 added. I want subbass, but stays neutral like the headphone is. And they freaking perfected it! 

 

I paid ~$400, ear impression and shipping costs included.

Nice going there ... My rockits have been reshelled. but 400 dolls is a bit too much to pay to add 40 dollar drivers. But, I am pretty sure UM did quality work on reshelling.

No subbass for me as well.... I think the Shure SE cables I got contributes certainly to it as well, may be search another cable.

I suggest having a read of the new Dunu Titan 1 dynamic. Though if isolation is important it's not for you due to the design. Having owned R-50, Brainwavz B2 offers a similar sound or Vsonic VC1000.

Here's the Titan thread which I would class a direct upgrade from R-50.

R-50, Brainwavz B2 and Vsonic VC1000 all share the Knowles TWFK driver, they are configured differently, but it would lead me to take the Dunu Titan.

How could I make this iems more fuller sounding whilst adding dynamism and slightly more impactful bass?

 

Thanks for your help

I use mine with Etymotic Gray Foam tips with a FIIO E17 USB AMP\DAC.  I kick the bass up a couple notches on the E17 and I am super happy.  I mostly listen to HipHop, RnB, and some Pop.

For me the most important is big soundstage with excellent separation, any info on these iems?

Soon will receive Havi B3 Pro I and compare with my Rock It Sounds R-50.

Please look into the Duoza review posted by Twister6. He describes a notably wide soundstage and separation, given his collection of gear I think its rather definite.

if you are looking for tips to use with these, the Shure foam sleeves fit, I find them more durable and then the comply tips
