Is the custom upgradable like the universal? That would seem to be the deciding factor (from where I sit), especially given that they are customs.

I have no idea. Perhaps Aurisonics is watching and can answer this question? Although I would think it would be much more difficult to upgrade a custom depending on the bells and whistles you put on it...

I believe Future Sonics mg6pro's are upgradeable for a fee if they come out with new drivers, etc.

Well they appear to have the same (presumably) easily removable screws on the faceplates...

Yep, the customs should be upgradable given that they have that same screw on design. And you can fit the SM3 default tips on there, it's a little tough to stretch the tip on, but it does work. You get more bass, but the soundstage gets squashed a bit, and the sound signature changes as a result of channeling all of that sound through a much smaller aperture, consequently, you have to turn up the volume to compensate as the volume gets nerfed as well. The Meelec double flange tips I have on right now have a much more spacious and open sound in comparison due to its much larger aperture.

I'm interested in the first modder to make a  faceplate for them :D!

I'm in the process of painting mine. The phones look a bit too utilitarian for me!

Going back and forth between sony hybrid tips in the large and medium, i think i'm settling on the medium. The large feels more comfy to me, the mediums i have to shove them in a bit more, but in terms of sound, the large is making the treble sound a bit distant, the mediums are giving me a more balanced sound

 

First Impressions:

I don't kno about some ppl claiming to have to eq the bass up, but they have enough bass for my needs, and they thump pretty hard, they have more bass than my monster coppers imo. These are really really good, i haven't had this feeling since i had the triple fi, the kind that makes you go "wow", the kind of feeling that even if a phone doesn't suit your preferred sound sig, you can respect it and admit that its technically proficient. These have that feeling of a top tier.

 

I agree with others who have said of the elevated mid range, they do feel like a stage monitor, ideal for vocalists, the texture and detail in the mids is amazing. I'm listening to Prodigy "Breathe" and there is an echo of vocals behind the main singer, words like "exhale, fire starter" can be heard in the background with great reverb and sense of space, i actually didnt pick up on that until i was listening to the song with these. Treble is inoffensive and i'm not getting any sibilance whatsoever, which is great, because I was under the impression that being a stage monitor, they would exhibit harshness or sound bad in poorly recorded songs, im not getting any of that. They are more forgiveable than the triple fi, which exhibited some crispy treble at times. Another note, these are surprisingly easy to drive, the big drivers don't need much juice at all, and no hiss as well ( listening through Sony NWZ-E354 Mp3 Player ).

 

And i am experiencing slight driver flex on both sides, moreso on the right, nothing serious, but its there upon insertion.

 

All in all, i am very impressed, if these improve any more with burn in, it'll be just icing on the cake

Does it?

Putting a plate and longer screws?

 

All you would do in theory would be adding a mini plate, not opening the phone in ANY way.

 

So:

1. Make plate to fit

2. Drill holes

3. Make screw thread in holes

4. Get longer screws with same diameter

5. look like a baws?

drill holes + aftermarket basic components = void warranty, pretty much no matter what kind of product we're talking about.

I'm just painting the face plate, not opening it in any way. The paint is easily removable unless I seal it with Polyurethane anyhow. Just experimenting at the moment
