Marshall Minors with Monoprice (Enhanced Bass) drivers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello Everybody,

This is my first post on Head-fi and I just wanted to start by thanking everybody for the amazing breadth of information on this site.

I've read several posts about the Monoprice IEM's here and I've ordered one but I am not very impressed with the shiny chrome look, also I really need a headset for my Galaxy S3 phone.


So I was thinking, given that the Marshal Minor's have 15.4 mm drivers, and the Monoprice drivers are about 14.2 mm, has anybody considered modding the Marshall Minor's with the Monoprice drivers? Most people say that the Marshall's don't sound too great, this would fix that and also give me the benefit of having a beautiful pair of headphones along with the headset functionality. Also I can;'t think of any other earphones that the monoprice drivers would fit in..


I understand the Marshall Minor's are not IEM's.. Would the monoprice drivers in still make it sound good? Has anybody tried it?

 

Alternatively has anybody tried recabling the Monoprice with some high quality cable that supports a headset? Anybody have any ideas on what I should use? 

 

Would appreciate your thoughts,
Thanks a lot!

Jason

Hi Jason,

The operation that you think about executing is not something really practical and around that level I don't think anybody in the forum took time to do anything like that. Especially considering the level of the iems that you are talking about it would be just a fun trial but probably nothing to last.

On the other hand, you have an interesting theory and we would be happy to see the results if you try it let us know. Personally I don't have much hope and doing all that for a mostly cosmetic operation is maybe too much to do.
