    Second hand IEMs — how to check if they are not damaged?

    I've purchased IER-M9. Blind purchase, and the sound they output is "weird" on any source. Before that I've owned Moondrop Blessing 2, and they sounded much closer to my dynamic headphones. Now I'm wondering if something's wrong with the headphones I got (some form of internal damage), but i...

    What are the thingamabobs called you can use on some speakers to adjust the gain of the high frequencies?

    So I have a pair of speakers that have the option to adjust the gain of high frequencies by one or two dB by putting the thingamabobs in a certain position (see image). Does anyone know what these are called? I seem to have lost mine and would like to buy a pair, that is if they are sold seperately.
