Should I reshell my IEM?
If you love how your current IEM sound, but always wished for better noise isolation & comfort, reshelling your IEM is a great way to take your listening experience to the next level. If your IEM is already suffering from connector failure or shell damage, chances are the drivers are still in good shape and it will be quite a shame to discard them when the essential components are still working.
