I would expect that your ears get bigger (at least at your age), so maybe you could just add material to them every couple years to increase the seal if it starts to get weak?
Well i would want them to last atleast 3 - 5 years. I think it would be a good investment if I could get that.

Do you think I could have them not put on the Freq label if i ordered them? how can you preview color schemes on there website? any ways?

Someone asked about the logo, and they won't intentionally leave it off. They want the advertising. It's small, and when it's in your head you can't see it, so who cares? :P

You can't preview the colors other then looking at the pics that others here have posted. Maybe we need an image index. Wanna volunteer?

My wife is away for the weekend and aside from watching too many hours of SVU to count I have been able to use the Super FreQs quite a bit. Kept me company while cleaning the place up a bit.

The cable is moderately microphonic. Typically microphonics is not an issue for me as I usually sit in one place and listen. However, while cleaning it was readily prevalent. I believe this to be a non issue as FreQ is aware of this and is working on an alternate cable option. I am told that once a replacement cable is found that they will update it to the new one.

Some quick thoughts:

As for sonics they are quite enjoyable. The have nice depth in sound to them which isn't all to common with IEMs. The soundstage feels as if it extends outside of my head a bit. It is about as good as Grados and Sonys I find them to be quite detailed and reveling but not harsh or fatiguing in any way. The mids are a bit more forward than I typically like but that is better suited for certain kinds of music and that is a matter of preference more then a flaw anyway. The bass is very well controlled and has no bloom to it. It isn't overpowering and has a natural sound. If you want big boomy bass don't go with armature drivers. You can simply EQ them to get more bass if you desire anyway. The iAudio 7 is quite nice in that regard as it has a rather flexible EQ. Overall I am very happy thus far and would say it is $189 well spent.

Now leave me alone and I will get you some comparisons in a few day
Maybe I missed them, but did you already post your review/impressions?

I have and love my Triple 10's, and I am still trying to decide between the FreQ and the Livewires for my first true custom!
