A $990 vs $99 Challenge
"Is it just me, or the frequency response of the UERM really resembles that of good old Triple.Fi 10 Pro?"So I set out to find out whether TF10 can be modified to closely match the frequency response of UERM or not to fulfill my friend's request. And if possible, the modified TFRM will be sent off for user auditioning, along with the IEM it was modeled after, UERM itself.

I can talk about how TF10 can be modified all day long as how I've done here, so I'll just cut the crap, and simply get to the result right away.
The IEM has been extensively modified from its crossover network scheme to its acoustic damping characteristics, so that the consequential tonality closely resembles the sound of UERM. As the rear part of the housing has been cracked open and completely ripped apart, I wouldn't dare to praise TFRM's aesthetic value. There's no durability issue though, since the IEM has been literally covered with a heady-duty epoxy resin inside and out.
I made this adapter for James, so that he can hook up his UERM to any source devices without losing too much treble, caused by high output impedance. If nothing goes wrong, this will be included in the loan tour along with UERM and TFRM.
