Agreed. In fact, none of the "ciems cum universals" at can jam were comfortable, and according to the audiologist who took my impressions, my ear canals are pretty unremakable. In fact, if I were to go with a universal, I'd probably stick to something like westone or shure, or some other universal whose design isn't compromised so they can have both a universal and a custom. All the "testers" at can jam felt like I was wearing someone else's customs.

The "icy" wind? Really? Aren't you guys in Cali? I'm sorry, I don't mean to be unsympathetic, but I don't think you guys see anything that I would call icy.
