They probably didn't have customs back then. I think these all came out some time last year.

But certainly if you have a chance, I'd like to hear more impressions from people who have actually heard the demo units. Though based on feedback so far it sounds like the demo is not as good as the real thing ( commons problem with universal iem demos).

Minor update - due to a miscommunication, I had the impression that the polarity was reversed for this cable compared to a regular Westone style cable. It turns out that is not the case. So this cable can be used with my other customs, and I can use my Beat Audio aftermarket cables with the LCM-2B. So that's good.

I need to edit the original post.

UPDATE:

 

Received my Lear LCM-5 customs.

They look, fit, and sound great! Will have more impressions as time allows. I got the left side in darker blue, the right side in lighter blue (which looks somewhat green in the pics, but it isn't really), clear tips, carbon looking "TrueTexture" faceplates with silver metallic Lear logos. They are really quite a sight.

Those look crystal clear, I really like the faceplate never seen that before.

Here is mine, clear on both sides. The right is just a tiny bit loosen so I might need to sent it back to have them add another layer of acrylic to tighten the fit, but the left fits perfectly fine. No bubble at all.

Looks nice! Too bad about the fit. Mine ended up being super tight, just like my LCM-2b is. If I was new to customs these actually might be a bit too much, but for me I love the extreme isolation. 

 

Mine sort of stick out of my ears more than other customs. Do yours do that as well or do they end up being more flush?

The left is pretty tight actually, isolation is great as well. I rather enjoy just a bit tighter fit myself, probably because of how long I have been using IEM as my main rig. My left side also stick out just a bit more than the right (maybe ~2mm?), but overall I say they are pretty flush. Decided to send them back tomorrow so they can add a layer to the right, and I already impatient about the waiting time biggrin.gif

That's too bad about the fit. Sending them back is no fun.... but ultimately a perfect fit is worth the wait.
