I must say I have read with much interest and some amusement all this talk as of late of people Moding or Frankensteining their Filters.
For me and my limitations I am quite happy to leave that to the engineers at Shure.
Then I thought to myself you have nothing constructive to offer this thread until my custom sleeves arrive. Why not try and FrankenMod my SE535 to se if I can't "tweak" the SQ and kick em up a notch as it were. and see how they compare to the 8s
It turns out there are threads on Head-Fi on just that topic but they are mostly about pulling stiff out of the nozzle and I didn't want to risk breaking the plastic nozzle...... Sooo. I just sort of winged it.
Now I am not nearly as handy or technically versed as most of you but all and all I think they came out really well. Really nice sounstage
True there has been some loss of comfort and the fit is not quite as flush as they were before but WTF...The 535s were just going to languish "boxed" in my closet anyway
