Hey guys. Long time lurker, new member here.
My first pair of IEMs (Fidelity Custom Pro Dual Drivers) have pretty much finally kicked the bucket after 2.5 years. They're not blown... but the sound of them is just... not great. It sounds very bit-crushed, top heavy, and, for lack of a better word, flacid. There's no oomph anymore, and it's really sad.
Here's the thing. I'm in college. I don't really have the money to get new IEMs, but I've finally begun performing live again in a band. Custom IEMs for bass and djing are going to be more and more important... not just for sound, but for protection. Those of you who perform know what I mean. Is there any way to install new drivers into my current cases? I'm THAT guy that has soldering equipment and a dremmel.. so breaking into the headphones shouldn't be a problem. However, while I'm confident in my circuit abilities, I don't 100% know what I'm doing and definitely don't want to screw up the one pair of IEMs that I can use.
So... would it be best to buy new ones? Pay to have someone fix/put new drivers in? Do it myself??
