Does anyone here try to "open up ear canal " by "depressurising" your inner ears while or after inserting non etymotic IEM?

Im not sure if anyone gets what im saying in my thread title... but doing (and i can do it on my own without external assistance) the above allows me to do "active monitor mode" of listening at much lower volumes.

note in thread title : non etymotic IEM = majority of IEMs in the market that are shallow and does not require deep insertion.

I do from time to time even with the shallow cx300ii... Pull your ear from the helix up, and from the lobule down.

Some people say that my current earphone (Sony mdr 7550) is too much recessed at treble.

But when I do what I mentioned above the mid-highs opens up and treble sounds just right.

I guess anyone who knows how to use iems does that when needed... it depends on the moisture level of ear canals - sometimes there isn't much sealing (and therefore - pressurizing) happening so doing that is not necessary...

I do this with most IEM's if my ear feels to sealed. I used to do it with my 7550 all the time.

I do it to all iems, or else the seal wont be good and eventually they would slip out

The question I forgot to ask: Do you have an uncomfortable feeling or sensation using IEMs in general? Is not necessary when inserting IEMs to depressurize, with time the problem should go away. Don't worry too much about it.
