Your monitors use balanced armature drivers which are different than a traditional speaker. They don’t “blow” in the traditional sense but repair can be necessary if they are damaged by high volume levels or from drops. Please protect your in-ear monitors from falls or impact with an instrument or drum sticks.

If you notice that your ears sound quiet, are not getting enough bass, or high, or have a rattle or distortion, these are indications of wax buildup in the tubes. Most of the repairs we see are due to wax buildup. It is hard to tell because they might sound “blown”. But as balanced armature drivers don’t break like a standard speaker, this is usually caused by excess wax.

You can protect your in-ear monitors by cleaning them with the tool supplied and keeping them in the case. This will protect them from damage and the small desiccant container will help keep them dry.
