What color is your 1.0? Thinking about trying the grey (smoke) one. I do have the Rosemary which has a clear shell. It is very nice.
I went with a clear one :)

Today I'm proud to bring life to two DIY EMX500's :)

EMX500_DIY_1.jpg


EMX500_DIY_2.jpg


We can't see them but behind ali foams there is white grids so this is a "full white" mod :wink:
On my second pair I used RY4S UE cable for them, but I prefer the cable I used on the black one.
Really loving them, not sure if it's due to the cable but I love the first one even better, is sounds just excellent to my ears: fun, vivid, energetic, very nice subbass and bass extension without any kind of bloat nor mids-bass bump, excellent details, large soundstage, nice mids presence, etc, they almost sound like a TOTL to me, so can't wait to receive my Blox YIN to make a compare for fun :D

Very nice! Btw, since I am in a "complaining about cables" mood lol, I like to use shirt clips like these:



and I find the RY4S UE cable strands are always falling out of the clip. Does anyone have a solution for this?

The best clip I've used (which broke) was the below jvc shirt clip that I got with some jvc iems. They would solve my problem, but I can't seem to find them anywhere (and I don't feel like buying more jvc iems lol):

Anyone with any ideas?

It could just be that your ears have become accustomed to a brighter signature.
It's for this specific reason that I have a set of RE-400 to help "reset" my hearing to a more neutral signature when doing comparisons and reviews.
It's pretty amazing just how much and how quickly our brains can adapt and filter certain things out... But at the same time it makes it rather difficult to stay consistent when reviewing products.
You are totally right!

I really like the shirt clip that came with the ER4XR and use it with just about all of my earbuds too when I need a clip.
It doesn't clip to the wire, but rather latches onto the Y splitter.
Other clips I use always felt like they were going to either cut the wire or were way too loose, so I much prefer this.
You can also squeeze the grip part a little if it is too loose. Once again, a little pricey but it is my favorite shirt clip.

That is an awesome clip design...I'm trying to decide if it would bug me that the cables are literally being pinched all the time :thinking:
The ones that don't pinch never hold, you are fighting physics and gravity after like 5 minutes when the cable keeps slipping and the clip gets yanked off.

This one looks pretty decent, although I wont use them myself.

Just received my Blox YIN today ! (was fast! sent 14th and received today 20th to France!)

Quick impression right OOTB :
physically : they looks absolutely identical to TM9 (shares same plug, cable, housing, and still delivered with VE thin foams, but in blue this time, same box and same case. The only difference is the very small black heatshrink upper the longest transparent one, maybe to recognize TM9 and YIN?).
sound
: At the beginning they sounded almost same as my previous TM9, but I was wrong, there is definitely an improvement. They are much less laid-back, much more details in mids and highs which are this time more forwarded, while keeping the same bass texture and extension (it sems even better more controlled now). They are still sounding quite transparent and natural, with a rare precision. Soundstage looks the same, but I feel like it is even slightly more deep now.
Now I'm sure this YIN is the real TOTL from Blox that some of you were waiting for. I really feel like listening a ful headphone now. Incredible experience.
There is much thing to talk about sound, so I will try to sum-up all of this part in a proper review soon, and of course as always, after a full proper burning :)
But definitely, my EMX500 mod is already blasted compared to YIN (without any surprise..) :D

put a small tape below the cable clip to prevent the slipping
