Same problem here, moved to other phones now.

You can puncture a tiny hole on the muffled filter and adjust the size to sound normal again, for last resort you could remove the filter and the foam inside and stuff it with denser foam, adjust the foam density to sound as close as the normal filter.

Any idea what foam should i use? I have used cotton before it works like a charm but i waste a lot of time trying to measure the same amount for each channel.

I would appreciate a link with filters/foam for iems.

Thanks.

Just any foam work, I use foam for dishwashing maybe it work the same like cotton or cloth. I cut a little and stuff it inside the nozzle next is just matter to adjust the volume of foam used to sound like stock filter.

I just ordered one from Ali Express (US 17.00), so it will take a while to arrive.
It will be my first quality IEM. I’m looking forward to comparing it with my full size headphones.
