DIY IEMs (w/ hollow shells)
I tried using a rotator to make a hollow shell with a two part acrylic, but couldn't get good results. Yeah, because you need to tilt it back a little to keep the material from pouring out you get thicker walls in the canal and thinner walls in the body. Another option to think about... I recently made a pair of earphones using Shure SE shells (linked to an ebay listing below). They actually came out really well (unfortunately I didn't document the process otherwise I would have made a new Instructable). You don't get the same isolation as a true IEM, but the process to make them is significantly faster and easier.http://www.ebay.com/itm/C0-Repair-DIY-Unit-Housing-Shell-for-SE535-se425-se315-se215-W40-Earphone-/131499238359
Struggling to get a decent wall thickness, going down the epoxy route right now as I'm just making them for myself. am turning the mould's on an old glass lathe (its huge!) but I'm guessing they need to be tilted back whilst turning on the lathe? hence why I cant get them to be very thick?
I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS! Can I get some contact info?
What if i wanted to create something with 8 or 12 drivers?
I'm not saying you can't, just that you'd be better off without.
Hey marozie, so are you saying I can not use the dtec and just the cl and twfk?
just do search TWFK on mouser. currently only one type is available there (TWFK-30017-000)
EXCELLENT TUTORIAL HERE!!! I am making one, have done my shell and I am now SERIOUSLY NEED YOUR good advice :) :) :) :) :1. if i were to go for A SINGLE DRIVER approach, can you recommend me a Knowles BA driver that is suitable for music listening (not for live music)2. if i were to go for DUAL DRIVER, what is your best recommendations?Oh, I listen to MP3 music a lot: mostly guitar and saxophone Jazzy stuff. Mind giving me the Mouser or DigiKey link and part numbers of the BA drivers? THANK YOU SO MUCH, sir :)
