I didn't add them to my manufacturers list since I wasn't sure what to put since they never replied, even to requests for more information.
Good call. If they can't answer a simple request for info, even to say "No thanks, not interested in a review, but here is some product information", then they don't really deserve a spot on "The List".

Hey Project86, if you're saying that they don't know the market price of these products, could that also mean that their sound quality might not be in line with the other products too? (could be a lot better or a lot worse)
I suppose their sound quality could be towards the top of the heap compared to other products. But the more likely result is that it would be roughly on par or even significantly worse than others.
Jerry Harvey obviously knows a lot about his competition. So does Westone. Just because they have both been in the game for so long. UM has had many competitors in for reshell, so they know a lot too. And Heir Audio is run by a Wizard/doctorate level Audiologist who happens to have examined many other customs, and even designed a few for some foreign competitors (before starting Heir). So I trust all of them to know where the playing field is and what level it takes to compete. Not so much for an isolated product like this. Maybe it sounds good but at those prices I'm not willing to bet on it.

And way more artists over the years have chosen to use armature based designs. That doesn't really tell us anything about the objective quality of each type of driver. Both have been used in successful/well reviewed custom IEMs, so why argue about which is inherently better?
