Keep us updated. That is some serious BS if they won't replace it after making you cut it.

Well I did that, only to find out this is not a warranty cause and therefore I can't get a new set unless I buy a new set.
GTFO with that.

lol...I hope you get the replacement.

I am more concerned if the grill part is left in ear, it would be good idea to see a doctor to make sure its not the case. Regarding the IEM replacement, I think you are entitled for replacement because I guess grill also acts a bit like acoustic filter and protective cover and loosing it might effect sound in some manner.

Though xears sound quiet good as compared to price , I agree build quality is poor & on xears thread you will find lot of people complaining of CS.

Well on a brighter note!

 

A couple of years ago I modified an inexpensive IEM. I just wanted to see if it was possible to get better sound. It had a super heavy screen and as I was using a hand tool to slowly widen the sound port going into your ear I chose to remove the screen. Over the years I have really mishandled them letting them sit in my pocket and such. I blow out any lint or such everytime before I use them. They work fine. 

 

If you end up keeping your pair, I would take the other screen out so they are balanced and enjoy them.

Well I'm happy to say they changed their mind somehow.

I woke up this morning, checked my Gmail and I have a message from Xears saying they will send a new pair anyway.

Maybe if I didn't cut the cables on them they would sound better, but I guess I won't know.

If you don't take the screens out you will never know? But I Iook for meaning and gifts in everything and many don"t.

Truly, I am guessing like all of us are. There is no way of knowing until we test both. I am sure screens are put in to keep ear wax and other crap from hindering  the full sound from the driver.

 

 

 

You are right I truly don't know!

 

 

 

 

It all depends on if the new screen missing drivers are making the sound closer to what the listener wants.

 

 

 

 

I may sound wacky but I believe every mistake has a methodology to getting farther in this hobby.

 

 

It did work for me when I was working without treble deficient  headphones.
