Collect my IEM today (the Westone UM3x). The workmanship are top notch, now my IEM looks new and shiny.

Attached Image

With the new 7N pure silver cable, man, I'm hearing some details that I never heard before for a same song that I listen for years. Overrall all the sounds are more ommpphh and more crystal clear.

Thank you again for your service, my IEM have a new life and looks so awesome now.

I'm really glad that you love your IEM now. For the time being enjoy your IEM and wait for the big thing to come on April.

I'm thinking of making my T90 detachable too.
It sounds a little too dry for my liking, maybe changing cable helps? cry.gif

Beyerdynamic T90? Making a detachable cable I can help, but changing cable to change the sound of the headphone is the last thing you need to do. Always remember the significance of sound change is Headphones/IEM > Source(player/device) > Song files > Cables. Cables are the last thing you play with.

Made a pair of universal fit IEM. The graph is as below, don't know if anybody knows how to read it dry.gif

Just share for the sake of knowledge.

Currently using ZX2 with Cayin C5 amp. File type 16, 24bit FLAC and DSD.
I think nothing else I can change d, I also feel it might not be a wise choice.
On the other hand, is it possible to transfer EX1000 driver to CIEM? brows.gif

I think it meant the IEM's high is more crisp, the spike of gain at high frequency. hmm.gif

Our ears are naturally amplifying those low treble regions. While this will be a sparkly IEM, it is not a neutral sounding one. The dips and peak difference is at most around 10dB there so that should be reasonably natural sounding, but still, a bit more amplified than what our brains would be expecting. Our ear canals are basically small pipes. Listening to a loudspeaker our ears work naturally because it is leaky. Plug an IEM in, and the IEM driver will resonate the air inside our ear canals easier. Our ear canal length results in a quarter-wave resonance of about 2400-3400Hz.

The Westone UM3x is considered by many to be a neutral IEM, and it is no coincidence that it, and others like one of the Etymotic ER4 rolls off or dips their frequency response gently starting around 3kHz (and then bounces back up again when nearing 8kHz).

You can still upgrade your amp biggrin.gif Get something like a desktop tube amp or something like Audio-GD. rclxms.gif thumbup.gif After that you try some Gold plated copper 26AWG OCC. flex.gif **EXPENSIIIVEEE**
EX1000 to CIEM>? are you sure? hahaha, if you want I can help you make it but no guarantee on the outcome of the sound biggrin.gif

The highs are not crisp enough, I feel like I can make it even better.

This IEM I tune is not neutral by all means, as you can see the highs dips from 3K to 5K and spike at 8k.
I haven't graph the Westone UM3X yet whilst having it with me for these few days for the mod. Should've done it so there is some comparison here. Well, what I want to do is to graph the fitear MH334 to see what it shows. Hehe. Anybody kind enough to lend it to me to graph? hahaha

How do you measure the IEM BTW, with a coupler, or is that completely raw?

1-2k lift for nice vocal/mids presence.

6-7k spike for wah, HD800-like treble and air?

1-2k for mids is correct.

6-7k spike has to be tamed a bit, that part is not airy at all. Has quite a bit of treble sparkle, but needs to be more controlled.

I see.
Well in that case that response is actually pretty good. Though the smoothing might mask the treble irregularities a bit.

Actually this is already very smooth, just some niy-picking here there to maximize the potential of a 3 drivers settings. This lacks a bit of details and precision. May need to tune down the bass a little bit. This is only a single sound bore design. If I make a dual bore design maybe can release more detail. Furthermore this is only a universal fit. Custom would yield better results.
