    Hmmm, I may give this a shot with my SE425s. Ever since discovering Audio-Technica IEMs they've just been sitting in a drawer, as I don't find them terribly exciting (at least in stock form).

    You may certainly try. SE425 were meant to be flat, so if you want something exciting, try orange filter.

    The filter on the SE425 is too inside, at the very end of the duct, must be pretty hard to take it off. Also, on the SE535 the filter is glued, not sure how fixed the new ones will be without the glue, what if one of this filters slip inside your ears? [​IMG]

    They have a little grip inside the nozzle, so they don't really fall off. I don't think the stock filter is glued either. It's just held tight by a locking mechanism in the nozzle. It will just pop in, and stay in, unless you force it out.

    Maybe, mine have this glue marks.

    I just pulled my SE425's out and found something interesting -- there appear to be no filters in there at all. At the very bottom of the tube is something that looks like it could be a filter, but if you hold a clear 425 up to the light and look down the tube, you can see right through it to the inside of the casing. I think it's actually just a wax screen, especially since I (eek!) accidentally tore a part of it while trying to extract one.

    You're probably right, even so, if you manage to take it off, you could stuck one of these filters just like on the SE535 and see how it sounds like.

    Hmm. Maybe you are right. But once you get a new filter in there, it stays there well. I did some drop tests, and it endured really well. In fact, it didn't fall off even after a 2m drop into a carpet and 30cm drop on to hard surface.

    I was trying to gentle push the damper and he moves a little inside the duct, that part that appears to be glued on the photos are actually the dumper perfectly touching the wall. So yeah, theres a fit inside the duct.

    Do TF10's use dampers too or any other similar device?
     
  11. kimvictor
    All iems that I know has dampers. Some are user replaceable while some are not. TF10 has replaceable dampers.

    Hate to be a pest, but do you know the size for the TF10's or a resource for finding that info? I'm getting a reshell done, and it might be fun to upgrade the dampers beforehand. Thanks!

    Hmm. Ask Rin Choi of rinchoi.blogspot.com
    He modded a pair of TF10 with damper mod and crossover mod.
     
  14. Spronic
    Bummer, that'll take more time then I have. If I ever have to reshell again, I'll be sure to look into that. Thanks for the info!

    Hi all, long time reader, first time poster :)
    I've got a standard set of 535's and just about to put in an order for the dampers on mouser. Had a question the 680ohm (white) damper is a "screen" termination. whilst all the others are plug? Can both types be used on the 535's? Thanks
