    @HungryPanda - Have you tried this $18.50 back shell, from Chitty's Store?

    I've found out that the silicone insulated wire that I used for those earbuds, can't take the stress of being used by active boys.
    Where the wires come out of the connector & heat shrink - the copper wires broke, inside the flexible insulation.

    I've replaced the earbuds - using pre-assembled cables from AliExpress (which include Mic/Remote phone controls), these drivers [ https://www.aliexpress.com/item/DIY...headphone-speaker-Heavy-bass/32325458276.html ], and some more of the modified MX500 shells.

    Is PK1 red film driver is better than transparent ? Isn't it too bass muddy ?

    I just built a custom one with pk1 red film. Sounds great and crisp for mids and highs. Sound stage is also quite good. Bass is a bit on the weak side when not EQ but I was playing around with PowerAmp and my LG G7 with QuadDac Hifi on with 50% more bass on EQ and it came alive. Maybe I need to somehow tune the bass on the shell.

    I tried David but ended up not using them, treble is piercing with very little bass

    My latest little creation, I got the earbuds for £0.90 but there was no left channel. The problem was with the cable but desoldering the cheap drivers destroyed them. I recabled the shells and used some 32 ohm "sweet vocal" drivers I had. Now they sound rather good.

    That's a really tiny looking shell.
    I wonder whether a "Subwoofer" driver would be able to generate some usable low Bass?

    I'm getting great bass from these

    Guys According to you which are the best 14.8mm and 15.4mm drivers available.
  15. HungryPanda
    Depends what sound you want. 14.8mm pk1 or pk2 are best. 15.4 mm I have used so many different ones
