    LETSHUOER S12 - Next big planar? (Impressions & Discussion)

    I'd guess maybe you need to re-solder the wires to the 2 pin or driver.. I have modified more than 10 of these and its not that hard but obviously takes some work.

    if they are cutting out, the 2 pin prolly broke from the wires partially, It's fixable.

    Is it worth it to rip CD collections to FLAC anymore?

    I assume you mean a shelf of frequencies because a small blip is not going to be hearable.

    .25 for studio work? I mean jesus thats pushing it. .5 is kind of standard and you would need some good a&& ears.

    Favorite streaming platform for highest quality sound?

    I dont trust streaming services to provide high quality music. FLAC from the OG CD or death.

    Nice! Hope it sounds okay. I like natural sound, and so this is tuned to sound like studio monitors. FWIW.

    Lol. .5 is pushing it. I can definitely hear say +1 in both treble and bass. When you create more contrast it's defintitely easier to hear. For Mids (high mids I suppose) around 2.5k I can't hear small changes as much which is odd. Maybe it's IEMs vs Headphone/Speakers.

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    You are misunderstanding. Im not tweaking until I get something that sounds good. I have specific targets: Pinna gain needs to be between 2.5k and 2.8k and about 6-8db in gain vs 1k. Bass slope should be about 2-3dub under pinna. Entire FR should slope downwards for good volume scaling...

    Testing audiophile claims and myths

    Here is a front view. I did have to take the shell apart and change the back damper on the driver.. and poke out the front vent precisely or if I don't hit the mark, have to apply a damper to the vent. The rubber insert there is designed to move the mid peak up and also squash treble. And...

    It's a modified IEM. Thats my curve, as per listening. I modify until its good for me and then take the formula and repeat. I acutally have 12 of these 14.8mm planar IEMs which I am going to be selling.

    LETSHUOER S12 - Next big planar? (Impressions & Discussion)

    All current sets have the larger pinhole and no i can't take a pic because its the internal ID which you cannot see that matters. The first sets had a much smaller hole from my measuring. At this point it's too variable.. so I poke the vent out. Measure, if its off, I poke more, then apply a...

    LETSHUOER S12 - Next big planar? (Impressions & Discussion)

    There is no 8k Peak. This is a coupler artifact. I made a video showing how to fix this problem with the 711 everyone uses. Beyond that, some of these S12 drivers are better tuned out of the box. Letshouer is not influencing things.

    Those are comply T500 cut in half, using the back half. My favs, and they don't influence the tuning.

    Because I love to play with sound, i thought, lets do the most flat tuning on the s12 possible.. FOR SCIENCE

    The exact reason some home user might want go to balanced (aside from fart sniffing) is to do a full house audio system snaked through say a crawl space or similar. 100-200ft runs are not out of the question.

    Good catch. ASIO4ALL is only a wrapper around the standard windows audio stack. Has absolutely none of the advantages of real ASIO which bypasses the windows audio subsystem. ASIO is made to talk directly to the audio hardware with no OS in the way.
