A lot of "interesting" names but unless I'm mistaken the purpose of an attenuator is to reduce excessive output gain - making volume control more graduated hopefully with less glare.

 

It has nothing to do with reducing hiss, increasing detail, adding oomph, making sound clearer, etc

 

The name should reflect that.

That's why I suggested "Silencer" or "Suppressor".

Valve 

Pipe 

Hydrant 

Throttle 

Choke 

Choke Collar 

Downshift 

 

The more I think about the more I like "Muzzle" for one version and "Choke Collar" for the other. 

 

...and all perfunctory i-* variants of the above :)

...since those efficiency-wise meddlesome little IEMs have to get back in line now with other more common cans, I propose

 

iLiner12

iLiner24



...also taking into account that attenuation is supposed to be nothing much more than a cosmetic touch-up... cool.gif
