As far as I understood it as Davies did his best to explain it to me the difference isn't ascribed to rigidity. In such a tiny form and with the tubes CNC milled from a block, there can't be any great difference between the relative rigidity of aluminium, steel, or titanium in this application. I suggest you email Flare Audio for a description of how the same driver/cable combo sounds different according to the properties of enclosures of different materials. If you are in UK you could also audition the IEMs. Of course auditioning doesn't provide the explanation/description but it does offer a practical demonstration.
At the moment I'm nowhere near the UK. If I were my first stop would be a certain pet store to return my Norwegian Blue.
I assumed the differences were due to rigidity and/or hardness; I guess I do need to e-mail Flare if I want to understand the science behind the different models.
