I would say they are a size down from the gigantic "JH Roxannes" I also use. I may try (once again) finding another cable that has more stability to the memory wire. With universals it is all about the fit, and that usually comes down to tips that fit well. I've always had luck in finding proper tips, with the exception (and frustration) of the this moment. 
The body is very well built. It is a shallow fit, that is for sure. I am more comfortable with a secure fit. I have been using universals for a while now, and feel it may have been a better choice to go the custom route with this particular model. When I am able to have the fit sit right, there is bass, but it is still not presented in the way I am used to, compared with my other IEMS I frequent. 
I received my K10u last night, new aluminum body. I have to say, I am not impressed at the moment. While they look nice, the shell is heavy and awkward side. I have probably close to a 50+ different tips collected over the years from various universal IEMS. I've had no luck with any of the tips but one so far. I've only managed to get one large mushroom style silicon tip to fit. The stem of the K10u creates such an awkward setting into your ear. You have to go up at least...
How long will the wait time be for a K10U? Ordered on the Black Friday Sale. 
I would recommend the IE80 since it is much easier to find genuine/authentic. There is little difference. I picked up an IE8i for nostalgic value, buy use the IE80 primarily. 
Wow, are people receiving their black friday orders already? I ordered a K10, would be great if it comes soon!
When in doubt, assume Counterfeit. (especially with sennheiser ie8/80's)
XB90's are two-steps down from the IE80 I feel, in sound quality and durability. When I compared the two, IE80 vs XB90, the 90 just sounded completely muffled and bloated. It is literally an XB500 in an earphone, with even less extension and clarity. I did not miss mine at all when I let it go. 
846>>800 ANYDAY. This is coming from a pretty big fan of Sennheiser as well. The IE800 was a complete fail in my eyes, or ears to be exact. Shure is above and beyond superior in the fit, cable, tips, durability and of course sound. 
I'm DONE with any JH monitors as they are way to big and uncomfortable for use. Plus, they do not sound in any way pleasing to my ear. I thought about the Layla for a hot second, but then realized that I could pick up a K10 and U12 for one Layla. Much happier with my decision.
