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.
What IEMs are applicable for reshelling?
Most universal fit Balanced Armature Driver IEMs can be reshelled, the list of models stated below are non-exhaustive.
-Westone UM / UMPRO Series & W Series, Ultimate Ears TF10Pro, Shure SE315/425/535, EarSonics & more.
Exceptions for universal fit models are hybrid IEMs, IEMs with unique driver structure (Sony XBA Series), or highly specialized models (JH Audio/FitEar).
CIEMs can also be reshelled, however there are several important points to take note of:
1) CIEMs with filled shells will face greater risks as chances of damage to the drivers are higher when extracting them.
2) Crossover components that are damaged during extraction process might be replaced, this will cause minor variance in sound.
3) It will not be possible to preserve unique acoustic designs such as JH Audio's stainless steel sound bores or UE's silicone driver coupling structure.
If you plan to reshell a CIEM, please kindly contact us before placing an order. We'll advise you accordingly if it will be advisable to proceed with reshelling.
