The godawful MMCX connectors on the UE900s were the reason I ended up going to Phil in the first place!  I sincerely hope the T2s are a pretty different design.
I don't even own an aftermarket cable.  I detached them once when I first got em, just to see what happened, but then left them well alone until the point where the left became so loose it even came out when adjusting.     ....I do know not to remove the CIEMs by tugging on the cables, before anyone suggests that might have been what I was doing!  
Was rather upset this morning - the day after moving apartments.  It seems that only the right hand CIEM has made the move with me! :( :(   I got my CEs just before the T2 connectors arrived, so just had standard UE/Westone type two pronged connectors. I'd noticed that the left was getting looser to the point where there was pretty much no friction keeping the cable connected to the IEM at all, but because of the vertical pressure on the cable when wearing them it wasn't...
  ......does that mean they're a pair of CE6s???
It'll be pretty soon I think - apparently the new lab is nearly ready, and I imagine when it's finished Headfonia will publish its CE6 review and the rest of the line up will be revealed.
Smithamb, we're all eagerly awaiting news on the updated product line from CE.  I think they're being sensible and not telling anyone about anything until everything is ready, and I'm not surprised it's taking a while to set up a whole new lab in the UK.     Phil is probably the guy to ask about your canals.  But I have read a few times on Head Fi that ear canals don't ever stop changing.  Only tiny changes, but over time (like 4 or 5 years+) CIEMs can become...
I am definitely guilty of buying into hype.  But I can't stop myself!  Only for whatever reason the new JHA Roxannes don't really appeal - massive cable with proprietary connectors suspiciously similar looking (if heftier) to the awful MMCX ones on the UE900.  
I'm saving for someone's flagship CIEM, and am eagerly awaiting news on what the BA6, CE6, or whatever it is Phil has up his sleeve.    It would be lovely to try the really highly rated stuff like the 1964 V8s, Noble K10 or Spiral Ears SE5 etc.  However having had the excellent experience ordering my reshells from CE it's difficult to justify taking the risk on a different company (particularly as most are non-EU).   ...I don't suppose there will be an update about a...
I've just had my UE900s reshelled by Cosmic Ears (I'm in the UK) - the crap connectors on the earpieces were just driving me round the bend.   First of all...  I don't think there's an improvement in isolation.  In fact, I think they isolate slightly less.  Bear this in mind.  I actually don't mind it at all, for the following reason: Everything about the IEM has been improved.  Credit mostly to Phil of CE for this - he made his own crossover to replace the rather...
Definitely comfortable fit.  And sure enough, they're getting more comfortable.  I think my canals just need to get used to them.  The reason I said musician's fit was that the right hand IEM is a fair bit tighter than the left, although that seems to be sorting itself out.     Just to be clear, as Phil said - musician's fit has a longer canal.
