Recently I have been brought in by my cousin into the world of customs. What I asked maybe or maybe not asked by others in this 122 pages of replies, so no offense if it bothered you. I am getting a Unique Melody TF10x4 and based on the reviews I have referred to "UM appreciation thread", I found not much of a detailed review. Most of them just commented on how the added mid driver improved the V-shaped performance of the tf10. I am assuming this is the most basic 4-drivers custom I could get, given the price point and the lack of proper reviews.
My question is, Does this mean tf10x4 performs how it should (that is better performance in mids, but nothing to shout about), hence not much of worthy attention is paid to it? Will the cost of $279 justified? Or is it just another marketing gimmicks? I have gone through the "customs are over exaggerated" type of thread, and concludes that hearings are very subjective (well, it is a common knowledge I acquired just recently), so any feedbacks would help.
By the way, will customs act as sort of ear plug? i.e I take out the cable, then I could concentrate on my studies without music and annoyance from my roommates.
