Would anyone who owns both Avalon and Dark Matter who receive's two experimental tuning system one for each consider selling one of them?

I feel this music is made for the EDP range but probably works with IMR in general. Enjoy this rare moment in time where i share "normal music" whatever the hell that means lol. Super feel good vibes!









Not one to disappoint though.....


The Midnight are AWESOME! I saw them live 3 times in the space of a year, as I just happened to be in the relevant cities when they were playing. Feelgood retro vibes don’t get better than this.

Good man Congrat's👍
And yeah I would be VERY interested in your comparison between DM & Elan.
Absolutely! Will let you know once I get my hands on em! Having said that, any impressions will not be reflective of the recommended burn-in conditions as outlined by Bob :). Hopefully, he considers selling the ETS after the initial rollout!

I literally discovered them around 2 weeks ago and it was instant love, i had to google them and was surprised to see they are from this era of time and not the actual 80's.

Don’t know if its a burn in thing, ozar sounds better, more clear, more open. SOR its really alike but there’s just something about the bass that keeps me scratching my head, its better but not clearer. It’s bigger, more punchy, mids are the same, soundstage as i just said SOR feels a bit more intimate, not in a bad way, just more enclosed.

Though mids and treble are on par, ozar having a bit more resolution in upper mids, but not like night and day.
Agree that the Ozar seemed to improve over time and am loving them. I am guessing then that there is no point in getting the SOR if I have the Ozar already?

+1 on Bob making the ETS available to other IMR owners as well!

Would anyone happen to know a company who upgrades the internal drivers of IEM's? I have a set of custome in-ears with 1 DD & 2 BA's but done really like the sound and would love to get it torn down and put a better DD and some EST Drivers put in?

The only company I can think of that works do something like that nowadays is Plunge Audio in Canada. They have done some crazy things with bespoke builds and reusing drivers in the past, I believe. Plus the guy who runs is is supposed to be an awesome bloke - might be worth dropping them a line.

Is anybody else experiencing some comfort issues with the Pro IEMs? I find that the sharp edge of the shell digs into my ear and creates a sore spot. In the picture below, I incuded the Elysium for comparison in which the area pointed to with the arrow expertly drawn in Paint is rounded everywhere and causes no discomfort.

Maybe ItsFit lab, they custom fit any IEM

Nothing here. But I also haven't have problem with Opus Mia banana shell fit.
Elysium shell looks better cnc and engineering work but it can be also due to different inner composition
Actually, not. It just less machine work
Avalon inside (not mine)

In the low right angle there is an empty space inside the shell so hypothetically (if it not about sound propagation aspect) there was a possibility to make it a bit less angular

Yikes, that's a lot of stuff and wires crammed into those shells.
But yeah, until the Avalon I hadn't had any fit or comfort issues with IMR earphones, including the sizeable and hefty Semper.
