The sound? Sure. Not yet sure about the right ear fit though. These days my right ear is really hard to please fit wise frown.gif

Had anyone compared Se5way with VE6xc? Wonder which one maybe better or what are the differences.

 

Also I heard that the shell of Se5way can only hold more or less like 2 years? Is that true?

I doubt that 2 year claim. There are members here who have had their SE5s for more than two years and I'm pretty sure they are still functioning. You just have to take care of your stuff. A dryer is very important and not a very expensive investment.

Good. What about the size of the shell? Is it nicely fit or maybe too large like the jh24?

I think if you search in this thread a little bit, you will get all the info you want.

 

In short, yes they stick out from the ears a little bit, but not a huge a lot.

Mine are pretty flush. Don't stick out much at all.

The shells are large for the SE5. For the new Ultimate version it seems they are able to accommodate people with slightly smaller ears. My pieces are pretty big though. The original case it came with was crushing them down so I got a bigger case to prevent damaging them.

Well your ear impressions must be huge and your ear has quite a good size though, so making it big but flush was possible I guess :happy_face1: For the ones with moderate or smallish ear size, if it is possible to make SE5way for them, I am sure it will stick out a little bit.

 

Though I never find that bothering me, it looks better than K10 or Rox pictures I seen in here.

Thanks, I guess my ears will fit then, at least not the small ones.
