A Comprehensive List of all Custom IEM Manufacturers

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
With the growing popularity of custom earphones, especially amongst our new head-fi members, I thought it wise to compile a list of all custom IEM manufacturers that exist around the world. This should hopefully make it easier to keep track of them all and compare the competition.

Below is the list, sorted by country of origin and in alphabetical order. They are identified by company name and a link to their website.

Please feel free to let me know of any that I may have forgotten and I will be sure to add them.

Sleek (CT6)?

Also, there's Compact Monitors in Germany and Insono (I think) in France.

Edit: also I think it might be a good idea (if you plan to expand this) to link each one to some review/appreciation/impressions threads here at head-fi. And maybe include pricing even? Kinda hard to just pick one at random .

Starkey makes custom monitors as well. They are located in the US (Minnesota). Their store page is:

Just wondering, are FitEar's prices inaccessible, or are they not on the list for other reasons?

Hi,
I couldn't find the prices for the earfit range, and I can't read Japanese so I couldn't get that information from their site. Maybe if someone knows, they could post it here and I will add it to the list.
