Good advice.

The price difference is almost 500$,  949$ vs 469$. Besides, I guess the cost for 2 driver upgrade would be lower than a full 6 driver's upgrade. Am i wrong? You got a point about warranty, though.
I'd love to get a pair of Miracle but their price is 2/3 of my monthly income, hardly affordable right now... :\
 
@whoever
 
Italian customs can keep packages for weeks, so I guess 24h is a very short time for any custom worldwide...

Thx, mine is between at chinese customs, on Its way to reshell.
post #3531 of 3857

In my case it was an extra 3 sets of drivers, so fair point about the price difference. I suppose the warranty issue is valid with all remoulds. It is still a great way to break into custom IEM ownership though. 

 

They found a fault in one of my SE530 drivers while they were adding the extra 3 drivers. That would have added another $100 to the overall price. This was starting to get very close to the Miracle price. UM Aus offered me a slight discount on the Miracles, which pushed me over the edge. smile.gif

should i be worried? Mine is there since the 24th if tracking is accurate. Is it possible that tracking is not updated? 

I'm getting paranoïd....

It's likely that tracking is not updated.

Its funny: even being experienced with shipping throughout the entire world, and very familiar with the tracking issues, I never get used to it!

I see... they know how to tempt customers :)

Well I'm quite happy! Just got it back, although I was not informed by anyone, in my opinion, they look ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Spent 10 minutes figuring out how they went in my ear, etc, and the fit was quite good, but I feel that the left earpiece is poking the side of my ear canal, not so sure if that is normal. Currently I do not have a cable with me, so I can't really explain if the sound changed or not.. I don't have permission to post pictures yet, and think the iPhone 4 (no S) camera can not justify the sheer beauty of the reshell.. Shall post even more impressions soon.

Thought they would ship by fedex express, but receieved the package in EMS? But who cares, got the reshell back.

Any pictures available of a set with the crystal jade faceplates? Quite curious to see what it looks like.

Quite curious too! Maybe you should go ask Stephen, or the custom-iem website, they got this new CIEM designer thing.

On a side note, I was really impressed by his awesome customer service, due to the fact that it is my first time doing reshell, as well as my first time shipping something overseas, he was really quite patient with me throughout the entire process!

I might be wrong on this, but the Merlins in the picture on UniqueMelody.co.uk look rather like a jade colour:

also noticed this pic on facebook:

 

 

 

 

 

Again, I must stress that I may be wrong on this.
