just one thing makes me a little sad: you did not yet review the ue11pro. as it is the only custom i have owned, it would be more easy for me, to read your impressions, if i would know how you would describe them.
as the ue11 is quite "oldschool" i guess they are still very well known by a lot of people that are into customs, so it would help them too.
maybe one day... :-)
Thank you. I can't recall even listening to a demo unit of the UE11 pro last time I had a chance to hear all of the UE demos. While it is true that having several more CIEMs such as the UE11 pro and ES5 would be great for perspective, and if I had more time to review them I would go for it. Maybe its time you buy a new CIEM that I have reviewed ;)

I placed my order with null audio for my rooth LS5X customs on 20th April and 4days ago, I was told that they've just finished doing the shell and crossovers for the drivers. Currently they are still in the midst of working on my artwork. Did you experience such long turn time when you ordered your LS8?
Yes, my LS8 took a while to make.
You ordered the LS5X from Null Audio, not HFI?

I loved the sound of the denon's so im not sure what signature they provide but i havent heard that many different headphones to be able to define sound signature. I have the m50, which my denon's sounded better. And i liked my denons as compared to the dt 990's also. Im sorry for my lack of knowledge, i guess thats why im here asking questions. So thank you for your help before hand!
I dont know if you could suggest a couple of headphones to get an idea of sound signature, but i have a B&H near me which has a variety of headphones which i could go and listen to and determine which signature i like the best, but that may be a stretch? Thanks!
I have only heard the D2000 once years ago, but from that experience + reading I believe it is similar to the TF10. You may want to read up on any comparisons of the TF10 and D2000 you can and use that as a starting point. If you can listen to some of the higher end products at B&H such as an IE8 (or IE80). What do they have in store? I would recommend taking your time selecting a custom IEM and listening for yourself is the best possible way you can go about doing things.

It's an interesting custom - very capable on a technical level, yet deliberately tuned in such a way to make them far less appealing than they could have been. I think THIS review sums it up rather well, though I'm baffled why they still gave it a "B" rating and a recommendation.
Factor in the (still) very high price, along with the questionable sound, and I would have a hard time recommending the UE11pro. Other options include the JH11pro and the far cheaper 1964-Q from 1964 Ears.
What are my sonic preferences ;)
