I drive mine without an amp/DAC, and they sound great to me. I've had some people vigorously tell me that I need a DAC, though. With regards to custom/non-custom, I ran non-custom for 4ish years, and they were good, but customs are a lot more convenient. Perfect seal every time, no need to replace tips when they wear out, no wear-in period on new tips, more solid build quality. I would say it's worth the extra money.
Probably important to note that it's silver nugget, not silver glitter. Glitter would look quite a bit different, I think.
Effect Audio Crystal. I tend to break cables, so I don't spend a whole lot on them. I've found Effect's cables build quality to be excellent.
I selected gold nugget, but requested silver nugget as a part of the confirmation process (sunny emails you to confirm the design choices before they start). Hopefully they can do the same for you. If not, I think it would look great with gold nugget too.
Cheers! It is a personal design, yeah. Cocobolo faceplates, dark smoke/silver nugget body, amber/gold nugget canals. If I did it again I would ask if it's possible to get Australian Mallee Burl faceplates instead (they hadn't made any with that wood when I ordered mine). 
My K10s arrived today:         I'm really happy with them. Here's the playlist I've been using to get into them. It's a wide spectrum of Jazz, Metal, Bluegrass and Pop. In particular Johanna Kurkela's "Sinä nukut siina" really shines on them, as well as Tesseract's "Resist": Definitely recommend a listen of those to other K10 owners :)
Well, mine are finished. Now I just need to wait for them to arrive. Just like the K7XX and Kona Process I've ordered. I'm feeling poor for the start of February, hopefully there'll be lots of shiny new things by the end! I really like how they turned out. Looked like there was one other person in the thread that wanted to know how Cocobolo faceplates look—you can see here.

Thanks for the tip! Just picked one up.
Yep. That's me. My impressions were received on the 17th. So I should have a week or so to go. Soon, soon...
