Get the Aero and keep the Superfi for backup or sell the Superfi and get money back.  Assuming the Aero is the sound signature for you.

Just got my E5c reshelled in full black + added driver, they sound fantastic!

How do you find the fit?  Snug and secure but comfortable?

How do the reshelled+extra drivers added compare to the Aero, and then how do they compare to mid to high end universals?

 

Probably going to go UM since they have an Australian branch and from what i've read seem to be pretty awesome.

 

Thanks guys :)


If it was me, I'd go the reshell.

 

I'm about to get my TF10s reshelled with an extra driver.

Pretty much, I need to get used to it though. Slightly rough... But it sounds excellent! e5c in general is pretty moody sounding phones but added high driver and dedicated mid driver, took whole spectrum to another level. Sure its not as bassy as it was before but I am not into bass that much anyway :)

Rough?  As in the shells are rough?

 

I've heard the UE canals are longer and bigger than the UM canals but just interested to know if the UM shells lock in nice and secure (not loose) and go right down into the ear but aren't uncomfortable.  Just wondering if I should ask for a mixture between the UM and UE tips.

 

EDIT: Ignore the comment above - see UM Aus reply below. :)

 

Good to hear you're happy with the sound.

Yeah, well. this is my first custom phone so, I would not be able to compare but in comparison with shure foams they are rough. it goes deep enough and locks in nicely. Isolation is excellent.

We're not too sure where that rumor started, but perhaps some people that use UM customs can vouch for the snugness of fit. If anything our tips are ever so slightly shorter than other manufacturers. We most definitely do not make loose customs though. If you have this issue, contact us for a re-fit!

There is no "UM" tip and "UE" tip. If you are in anyway unsatisfied with the fit of your customs rest assured, we'll fix it.

My reshells of the CK100 have arrived today and I could not be happier! Love the look and finish I choose. I have to say that the service here in Aus was superb; had all my emails and inquiries answered timely and courteously. I know where to go for my next purchase! Here are a couple pf pics.

post #2535 of 3880

I have added a bass driver and a custom Xover and they sound even better than I could remember
