    Just read a nice review of 800s by @joshnor713 on his website. He mentions they only ship with Comply. My serial is 007xx and I could swear they also had silicone as I am using the same size on both my 800 and 800s.

    Didn't say they ship with only Comply. Said the Comply replaced the oval silicone tips. The circular silicone are still there. But you made me realize I should specifically say that for folks not familiar with the original model.

    Thanks for reading BTW :)

    I prefer the T200 series Comply foams. Interestingly they fit the ie800 perfectly and are cheaper than the model specific Comply!

    ... and the model-specific Comply tips fall off in your ear just as much as the original tips!

    I don't seem to have that problem with the stock silicon tips. I will try the Comply this weekend. I find the Comply deaden some of the highs.

    Anybody know how to separate the driver from the case for rewiring. One of the channels not working. Something similar to the photo 8483046.jpg

    Couple years of experimenting and 10-20 dead drivers and you will cope with this)
    IE800 is one of industry's hardest earphones in terms of recabling.
    BTW, there are fake earphones on your photo.

    Thanks for the reply. You sound like you are offering a service lol

    Exactly. Nevertheless, you will definately waste your time and efforts. There are many earphones that can be recabled without pro experience but ie800 are not one of them.

    I'm still going to give it a shot. Once something can be done by one person means another person could repeat. I'm not a novice at this, just trying to find out if anybody has done it here. The photo is not mine... just to further explain my point. The driver is held by glue. There is nothing like a a glue that cannot be "unglued"... just different degrees of difficulty. Regards

    Wise and beautiful words. The problem is - counductive threads that are ~0,005 mm in diameter are in this glue between enclosure and driver outer shell. Glue (rubber compound to be exact) is very strong. You are going to remove this glue without damaging threads. And there are many other problems even if you secceed with this one. So of course anyone can play guitar, but if you have only one try to play some complex tune on the instrument you've never seen before chances are low. Though not zero of course.

    Ok ,managed to get the driver out safely. Heat gun and aluminium foil wrapped around the plastic parts. Wasnt careful with the foil around the strain relief so l lost that. Will have to source that somewhere. 20191218_093554.jpg 20191218_094253.jpg 20191218_093554.jpg 20191218_094253.jpg 20191218_093554.jpg 20191218_094253.jpg 20191218_095609.jpg 20191218_103508.jpg
