    Natural sound, natural resolving bass.

    Then for 15.4 mm I suggest EMX500 drivers then you can alter bass by using different thickness and material tuning foams/ paper

    Thanks, though the link is not working and what do you think about the beryllium 600 ohm driver, how close would you say is it to k600.
    I also see electrostatic driver available for 14.8mm

    I'm on my mobile at the moment will sort the link out later when I get home. I have used those 600 ohm drivers and they sound great. I have not used any of the electostatic drivers in my earbuds yet

    I am also very interested in those 600 ohm drivers. I have my finger on the buy button right now. @HungryPanda you said you've used them? Do you think it's worth it? Anything better out there? These seem to be at about the top of the Aliexpress earbud driver tree that I can find without venturing into electrostatic territory, which there appears to be only one of available, with almost no reviews or info about them, and almost triple the price of the Berylliums.

    Just this week, I used that metal shell, and installed this 600Ω driver - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/MMX...-high-frequency-equalization/32910917383.html
    I also used a lower profile MMCX connector [ https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Uni...ure-copper-gold-plated-don-t/32797640235.html ], which I think looks better than the one that comes with the shell.
    It did require getting a M4 x 0.5 tap, to enlarge the holes.

    Before installing the MMCX connectors, I soldered on some short wires -

    After installing them, I glued the MMCX connectors and nuts, with some Gel Super Glue -

    The drivers were then soldered to the wires, and installed into the shells -

    .
    They ended up costing me $68.83 (Drivers = $43.20, Shells = $18.50, MMCX Jacks = $7.13).
    Currently, I've got them connected to my Little Bear B4-X Balanced Tube amp, and I'm watching "Charlie Luxton's Homes By The Sea" on Netflix.

    I put my 600 ohm drivers in a more traditional plastic MX500 shell:

    One of my favourites is a 32 ohm carbon driver in a wooden shell, sound really good:

    They look great! How do the drivers sound? Did it require much tuning? Do you think the big vents on the back create a little more soundstage compared to a more closed shell?
