    Would you happen to have a link for those drivers, mate? How do they compare to the 600 ohm beryllium-membrane drivers?

    I have used these drivers in the wooden shells, MX500 shells in various colours and with different cables. I have made quite a few for some friends and workmates who all like them

    I wouldn't say I prefer them over the 600 ohm but they sound good and are much easier to drive

    Since the drivers already have "Tuning Cotton" installed over the holes in the driver frame, the only tuning I've done, is to place a Donut foam over a Full foam.
    I haven't made any measurements, but I suspect the vent opening at the back of the metal shell has a freer air flow than a standard MX500 shell.
    Some of my first impressions of these earbuds, were that they have a big wide Sound Stage, and really good low Bass.

    New today's DIY fun :)

    Featuring the "original" Yuin PK1 150 ohm drivers that were recommended by @HungryPanda, sound is really nice (for yuin shells) I confirm!
    Also.. I guess you recognize this cable @DBaldock9 ? :D


    Cheers' :)

    Were they with the red film or transparent?

    Oh wow can you describe the sound.
  12. subwoof3r
    Completely depends of the (tuning in) the yuin shells, so hard to describe, but globally you probably have one of the best 14.8mm drivers with those, and you can have much fun to tweak with in-shells tuning :wink:

    I've got a set of those 150Ω Red Film Drivers here, but haven't decided which shells I'm going to install them in.
    The choice is between these PK1 shells -
    and the black or white version of the shells you used -

    Didn't realize those were called "A8".
    The page I ordered from called them "Disassembled pk1 shell".
