Please post...

The space between the wires looks a bit tiny. I earlier did one for one of the earphones from the mesh in a smoking pipe(check Amazon] . It turned out to be more work than anticipated. I used the tool for cutting holes in a leather belt. Whatever happens you have to protect the driver from earwax etc.

Please post photo of this(nozzle). Genuie ie800 mesh can hardly came off without being damaged mechanically, it is fixed thermally, not simply inserted. Just to make sure your earphones are genuine. Or do you mean mesh on the eartip?

I am liking SQ without mesh, more aggressive and fun

Mesh came off on only one side, to restore balance i pulled other one off. I am sure it is glue

Your earphones are genuine.
Yep, I found one nozzle with glued mesh, while other have deeper groove with thermally fixed mesh, probably different revisions. Anyway, there are two main differences between stock and chinese meshes - density (as mentioned by huggy020) and form - stock has beer cap shape, chinese are flat. Chinese have double-sided adhessive and will also work. 4,3 mm. is stock diameter, but I suppose 4 is the closest available, it'll fit but will significantly change the sound due to it's density. Imo, it is better to apply tiny peace of some rarefied napkin under the eartip mesh, just to protect driver from any specks. You can also try to extract meshes from pair of stock eartips that you do not use. Or just use as is, keeping it clean)
