Mod Klipsch S4 to tame treble?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Anyone ever attempt to mod IEMs to tame shrillness/sibilance? I have some S4s and generally like them EXCEPT on the occasions when the highs turn into bloated noise. Reading some reviews, I noticed that some IEMs have foam inside. And this got me thinking that something like this might help S4s. I didn't have any foam handy, but tried a piece of very thin silk -- held in place by the tips. This was a little too much, but was interesting experiment.

 

Anyone ever try things like this? Have any suggestions? 

 

Thanks!

What you need to do is take the S4 put them away and buy a pair Sony MH1C, problem solved.

 

Seriously though I don't know what you could do other than using something to put in the nozzle which would be hard because of how small the opening is but it will effect not only the treble but the already muddy mids will sound even worse.  You might really like the MH1C a lot more because the have about the same bassy sound signature of the S4 but without harsh highs and much better clarity and soundstage and for around $30 is a great deal.
