Thought I'd open a thread to talk about general gear discussions, shows and event and latest audio news.

Go!

Sound cool right

That's some straight-up Frankenstein stuff right there biggrin.gif Not sure what the results will be like, do you have a rig to measure a before and after frequency response?

Also, if you're interested in this kind of stuff, the next logical step would be to 3d-print a housing for the driver, instead of just slapping it into an existing shell.

The IM50 would have more bass, and because it has dual drivers it's much more sensitive (108dB vs 97 dB), and with that sensitivity you won't have to push it as far to produce decent volume, and therefore it will stay well out of distortion levels.

My guess is, because the BA driver of the RM600M is self contained, it'll most probably be about the same. Maybe some minor differences, because of the longer nozzle (and probably different diametre too). The IM50's casing is quite unergonomic, and a BA driver would require no less than a perfect vacuum seal, so that could be a problem.

Seemed like a midfi brand, never tried their higher-priced models. Why aren't you using it then? Also, why not just sell it and put the cash towards your Mojo?

I managed to get my speakers last week. Edifier Studio 7, they're pretty ok for the price. But I think if I waited a little longer I could've gotten a pair of KRK Rokits instead.

Even though the speakers aren't TOTL, I prefer them over headphones at the moment. The music experience is different between headphones and speakers.

Home speaker would be good too, but most of time didn't manage a good cleaning, would be dust collector, in between headphone & IEMs is personal preference too.

Heard about the Pinnacle P1. It's like MEE put in all their chips for their big mid-fi flagship. Read that it sounds neutral, slight treble emphasis with wide stage. I wouldn't be so interested in it if it weren't sold out since CNY. You getting? The machined metal looks nice.

50 ohm impedance. It would need an amp to drive properly. Though it is an easy load for portables (albeit you won't reach very high volumes).

Honestly, does acoustic design on the inner housing matters? I wonder if plastic (cheaper ones) encasing does affect sound. Coz I really find the likes of Finals (especially), Dita, and IEMs with metal housing sound slightly different. Like they can afford louder sound w/o distortion (or is it because they're more expensive than the ones I tried? Shrugs).
Shure did a great job on their 846 low pass thingy. That's also related to what I'm talking about. Less on the driver unit, more on the design of passage between the driver and our ears.

Bass impact + sound leak for matel shell/housing will help up.

Such as soild wood vs chipboard on speaker the sound might be slightly different too.
