The point of providing a pouch / case is to give the protection needed when you are not using the IEM. Soft pouch, though convenient, lacks sufficient protection for delicate device. If you put it in you backpack along with other bigger, heavier things, the IEM won't survive for long.
Same reason with small case. Putting the IEM into the case often require stressing the cable a bit. The smaller the case the more stress you need to apply to the cable. Why use a small, tightly fitting case when you can use a larger case? A small Altiods tin with foam inlay does a better jobs with room to spare.
For all these reason. Shure, UE, AL, and CrossRoads all score higher for providing a functional hard case.
Yes, but once you put a shirt clip on the EX700SL, it won't fit into the nice leather case anymore.
Also hate the strong PVC smell of TF10s. Hope UE didn't make them with such smelly material.
