Here is one of my latest creation. Meet Rumble!!! biggrin.gif or so the name I gave it.

It's a 3 drivers 3 way crossover Hybrid configuration that I made. What is a hybrid? Well, just to cut it short, hybrid consists of Dynamic and BA drivers mix in one unit.
Usually dynamic drivers are used as a bass unit, this is no exception. Dynamic drivers are known to have powerful bass but lack response. There is also a trait of the dynamic driver that I do not like. And that is the driver's back end emitting sound. This might sound insignificant but in a custom IEM design, that could be fatal. The back end sound must be managed properly so that it doesn't flow back to the sound bore through the dynamic's back end. There are some hybrid designs that is have this problem but I will not quote any name. To me this is a problem that had to be solved and I've figured a solution for it. Here are the pictures, enjoy.

***note that this is a universal type shell for testing purposes, so anybody can test it out***

I think my hybrids can go head to head with any hybrid because mine surely sounded different due to my special design. By the way, If I were to make something like a gathering to test my stuff vs all the big guys, bring whatever gear you got to compare, do you think anybody would come for it?

Improvement made over my 3 drivers 2 way crossover design with 2 sound bores to separate the low and high frequency. Improvements are obvious.

Depends on what range. Definitely cheaper than UE.

Got a chance to listen to bro ziixtreme's new dual triple driver, and I am pretty impressed - it is overall neutral and very detailed, but with a small hit of warmness and a solid (though not large) bottom end. Kind of reminded me of Etymotic ER4XR that I listened a few weeks ago, but with even better bass depth and texture. With the stock cable, It can get a little bright, but still not enough to be referred as sibilant. I tried my own MMCX cable (just some regular OFC cable) and the brightness is tamped down and sound very balanced to my ears. Overall, I think the SQ is pretty solid and ready even as an commercial product. The build quality is decent as well - not as good as big brand CIEM though I didn't see any obvious problem either. There are certainly room for improvement. The only real issue I have with the demo set is that the nozzle's shape isn't very well formed and the eartips keep falling out. But as I had been told that this is designed to be CIEM and not universal, I guess the problem will be a non-issue at the end. Overall, bro ziixtreme has done a great job on his dual triple driver. Those who enjoy sound signature that is a balance between neutral and warmth will definitely like this dual triple driver setup.
