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

 

TF10 uses balanced armatures, so they are not meant to have driver flex.

What IEM are you using?  

 

Not reading all of the thread, but this caught my eye.

 

My left ear is fully blocked. I can't blow through it or anything. I may have to get grommets, but the thing is, when putting in my IEMS. my left driver "Pops" and the right one doesnt. Obv, this is the driver being pushed into a closed space, but it is what it is.

 

IE7's btw

Horrible driver flex on my Brainwavz R1. On the left side only in my case.. I think its just down to manufacturer imperfections with this model.

I've had a little bit of driver flex in the left channel of my monoprice iems (my left ear always seems to fit differently than my right for some reason) but it's very rare and only when I'm carelessly shoving them in, not very loud or painful in any way but I've heard that these iems can handle driver flex better than most.
