Which IEMs suffer from driver flex? - Page 2

post #16 of 43
If I amped my turbines with FiiO E10 then used high volumes the right side would flex/pop and stay that way, You'd lose the sound until you readjusted the earpiece which would click back into shape. It got worse and worse over time. Had to be pretty loud though.

OK, then it's possible that it's driver flex.  But being able to do it with all IEMs arbitrary of volume?  Are you able to do it so that it pops, but you get sound back after the pop?  If you don't want to test it I understand (I wouldn't want to blow out my ears either :p).  I just want to make sure that the pop can be reproduced using driver flex now.

edit: Tell me a place you've had success with before and I will put it up*

Draw your own conclusions, I only have the issue on portable players with IEMs, not on full systems or my PC.

Download link not working.  Upload elsewhere, I'm not plugging in my real email address in, and the fake generator gets an email with a link that doesn't download properly.

I don't have them anymore, though I know once it popped out of place it stayed flexed, I'd have to push the housing to have sound come back. It didn't just pop and continue playing. Mind you we're talking about very excessive volume levels, using high gain. An MP3 player alone would not drive them to such a level.

If you hear it, I don't see why you'd remove it tongue.gif

 

However, I have never heard about driver flex in the TF10. Maybe the earlier models? Still not sure.

Brainwavz m5 copper 

 

First pair had it on the right side only.  Returned those to Amazon and got a replacement pair.  This pair has it on both sides. confused_face.gif
