Materials Needed for Reversible IEM Modding

by Jürgen Kraus

  1. 3M micropore tape (Johnson & Johnson micropore tape may be too thick; you can also try Transpore tape)
  2. Electrical tape or Scotch tape (Tesa Film for Germans)
  3. Alcohol swabs (only in rare cases; 2-ply because it is the thinnest)
  4. Thin wire (create it from a twist tie)
  5. Needle
  6. Scissors

Tip: You get the micropore tape in your local drugstore or health supply store (e.g try here if you live in Calgary).

    Head-Fier since 2016. He has been known as “Otto Motor” to Head-Fiers, as “Dr. Schweinsgruber” to users and Youtubers, and as “Brause” to Super Best Audio Friends and the Headphone Community. - For the purpose of confusion, he decided to pose under his real name Jürgen Kraus (“JK”) from now on. - This is a hobby. In “real” life, Jürgen is a professional geologist operating his own petroleum-exploration consulting company Franconia Geoscience Ltd. (see ad in the footer) based in Calgary, Canada. He holds German and Canadian passports. Jürgen had a classical music education from childhood through high school in Germany and he has been following popular music developments since the late 1970s. His understanding of arts and crafts was influenced by Bauhaus pragmatism: “less is more” and “form follows function”.
