    Hi all, is it possible to replace the bottom part of the cable with aftermarket/upgrade cable? If yes, would it damage the earpieces though? For example, I can easily order a silver/copper cable with a female 2.5mm on one end and a male 4.4mm on the other end.

    Beat Audio told me they could do it. I would like to be able to replace the whole cable but it is risky.

    Norne Audio can do that as well. Yeah it is risky to do that. I'm also wondering whether replacing only a part of the cable will bring noticeable improvement/coloration of the sound. I haven't bought the IE800S yet, but planning to.

    I've been listening to the IE800S for the last several days. I'll post impressions soon, but an ecapsulation of my reaction to them is that, after hearing them, I returned the SE846.

    I auditioned the IE800S and while I like them more than the original IE800, for some tracks the sound is still very dull and dry.
    Very curious about what's causing that.
    It's all about the recessed midrange?

    I think there is something going on in the upper midrange that makes it lack some bite when needed.

    I want a break from BA and I am looking for a resolving DD that is relatively neutral. Is IE800S a contender? Any other suggestions? @Mimouille? @Kunlun?

    I'd say it's a great contender.... i wasn't asked though :) I love them @ my Hugo 2 for relaxed listening sessions at the evening.

    Any advice is welcome, thanks, although I feel as though I have an understanding of Mimouille and Kunlun’s perspectives, based on other IEMs.

    I would take a look at the IMR-R1 with it's tuning system it covers a lot of bases. I wouldn't describe the IE800S as neutral, as it is warmish with wonderful DD bass, the treble is smooth and extends well.

    Hum wouldn't call it neutral, but well balanced. I have heard that the new JVC HA FD01 is not too colored and has filters. No idea if it's good though.
  13. Kunlun
    Elevated bass, not flat, but balanced is a good term. Probably the best universal fit dynamic so far that doesn't have ear-piercing treble.

    Thanks. I guess balanced is more the word I was looking for. I love DD timbre but they always seem to fall into treblehead or basshead territory (or sometimes both).

    Backing up what’s already been said, balanced, warm, smooth.
