New custom IEM company - Custom Art: discussion, review, and impressions thread - Page 19

Well, full price AK120 is way too overpriced. But sometimes you can get it for a street price of around ~€800-850. At that price I can vouch 100% for AK120. The difference is huge between the AK100 and AK120.

Maybe but the law of dimishing returns places the AK120 way out of my reach. :P

So I did two of my "crazy" designs they turned out only ok, and that's not enough for me. I'm waiting for a batch of other drivers as previous didn't really hit the target I've been expecting.

Aw, a hard decision, but a good one. I guess we'll have to wait a bit longer to know what those designs are "crazy."

As it looks I won't be finalizing this one particular design after all I can say it involved Yashima ME202-2 driver (known from Ortofon e-Q7 and Grado GR10) which is moving coil armature driver.

The second design has more potential so I won't reveal any details on it.

Fair enough but so far good news. You will always have my interest apparently :happy_face1:

This is perplexing - there's a blurb in the OP that states - 

Quote:
Shells are covered with lacquer with nano silver particles for bacteria-free surface.

But I've not seen any mentions of this throughout the thread or on the website (although I could have missed it of course). Curious to know more about this.

Ask and ye shall receive --- it's called NanoScreen™ Soft Lacquer, from Dreve Otoplastik:

 

 

 

As you can see, the lacquer effectively prevents the accumulation of P. aeruginosa and S. aureus, two major infectious bacterial agents, likely because the nano-treated surface matrix is smooth enough to prevent CFUs from adhering to the surface of the lacquer. If bacterial growth is allowed to grow unimpeded, the bacterial colony may form what is termed a biofilm, which is very difficult to disinfect.

 

Regardless of whether your CIEMs have this NanoScreen coating or not, people should still be wary of cleanliness and practice sound auricular hygeine.

 

Talk to your CIEM maker about whether NanoScreen™ Soft Lacquer is right for you. ;)

post #280 of 1370

Well that NanoScreen layer is pretty tacky compared to the smooth, twinkly conventional lacquer.

post #281 of 1370

NanoScreen™ Soft Lacquer is not right for everyone. Side effects may include a tackier surface and cause difficulty inserting and removing your CIEMs. If you experience discomfort with NanoScreen™ Soft Lacquer, discontinue using your CIEMs and consult with your CIEM maker for options that may be better for you. ;) (okay, this humor might only apply to those in the US who've been swamped with prescription drug commercials on television)

Couldn't explain it better, Thanks Tom.

 

Actually I had worked with Lack B at first and then switched to NanoScreen. NanoScreen is far more superior lacquer then regular one. I highly doubt NanoScreen causes trouble with inserting. I haven't had such experience (once it's curred correctly) and also didn't receive any reports on that from customers.

post #283 of 1370

Oh I was referring to the Lack 3 for acrylic, not Lack B :P 

Btw thanks for the tip last time. It worked perfectly!

post #284 of 1370

I think there's a NanoScreen version for hard shells too. Interesting.

Don't worry, I've not gotten rigor mortis yet...;) But I think you've forgotten some things...

If you have seasonal allergies, NanoScreen™ may be right for you. Side effects of NanoScreen™ are uncommon, and include headache, nausea, vomiting, death, dizziness, dysentery, cardiac arrhythmia, mild heart explosions, varicose veins, darkened stool, darkened soul, lycanthropy, trucanthropy, arteriosclerosis, hemorrhoids, diabeetus, virginity, mild discomfort, vampirism, gender impermanence, spontaneous dental hydroplosion, sugar high, more vomiting, brown, your mom, and mild rash.

 

Anyways, thanks for the explaination :D. I'll definitely speak with my doctor about using NanoScreen™.
