I am excited as hell, I just want to ship it and see if it possible. If it is possible to build it, I will calm down, relax and wait for my monitors patiently happy_face1.gif Do you think that narrow area is causing me discomfort and problem with universals? I rarely get nice comfort and seal with universal fit iems.

Well if the pain is happening on the outer/upper portion of your ear opposed to inside your ear then yes. The upper flap area. It's on the narrow side for me and it looks to be the same way for you. The thing is my impressions for the canal area are pretty large so hopefully that will leave enough room for him to work with....

Well, then your suggestion might be true.

 

I wish good luck and patience to both of us biggrin.gif

Just a note for anyone looking at those pics and thinking the SE-5s stick out a bit - that's normal for the SE-5. There's a heck of a lot of components (& 5 tubes) inside an SE-5.

My 8As where similar to that. One side did stick out a little more than the other though :P.

It doesn't stick out horribly, IMO. It needs to stick out a little for the cable to be connected, anyway. My 4.A only sticks out a little less, even though there's plenty of empty space inside:

I just received an email from Grzegorz, he confirmed that SE5way is possible for me, my ears are large enough, despite there are a few points he was worried, it should be fine.

 

Another wonderful news is, he said most probably my monitors should be ready for shipping sometime next week. Man, that's fast, I am really impressed. They even work on weekends to do it.

 

So far, so good, I am extremely happy. All I hope is I will get the sound described in here by many members and I won't need refits.

 

I should add, communication with Grzegorz is flawless and perfect, couldn't be better and clearer. He is very helpful and explaining every detail, also very fast on replies too.

Apparently he keeps on being awesome? happy_face1.gif Really so far, I couldn't be happier. I hope I won't need refits and it will be a perfect experience.

Grzegorz is a no BS straight up guy, very reliable. And when you see the work they do on the build of the se5...

I already searched and watched a lot about building acrylic shells but I have no idea how they do on silicone shells. Could you provide some sources that I can read / watch?

I have the UERM (IERM) and the 10x3 Demo. I like them both, the 10x is a great combination of fun & serious (magical close up-mids, inoffensive but sparkling highs, bass-boost for bass shy recordings) , the RM is simply delicious when listening to good recordings. The UE 900 sounds a bit muffled with a very small soundstage. Nothing sounds bad, but a little uninvolving.

 

Does the SE-5 really sound different with each recording? No general sound signature recognizable? (I have a SS amp with very low output impendance (Meier Audio) and a CD Player which drive IEs just fine)
