If you mean MH335DW, it is among the most expensive CIEMs, but K10 and Roxanne are in the same ballpark. However the Final Audio Design Piano Forte XCC is more expensive than any of them.

 

I mean if you buy directly from Fitear. Certain distributors have such a huge markup that the price just becomes silly.

Interesting, somehow i always had this impression that SE5way is the most pricey iem. 

Looks like the FAD trumps over all, yet its not a custom..

SE5 way is around 1.6k$, around the same as the others mentioned.

In HK, MH335DW costs around HKD 16k (~USD 2.1k). However, in Jaben Beijing, it costs around USD 3.7k. I wonder price will go even higher for MH335DWSR when it comes out.

That is not an actual CIEM, it is a modification to the current MH335DW. The price is 40,000-50,000 yen for the modification. That is on top of the original price of the CIEM.

Can someone enlighten me how does a 4-way crossover on the C435 work?
I thought the most you can get for 3 unit BA (treble-mid-bass) is only up to 3-way.

Yep the markup for us in China is absolutely ridiculous.

hmm, crossover and #-way are not the same? 

I always seen them referred to as 3-way crossover, 2-way crossover, etc..

 

in Fitear's context, the "3" in 435 actually means number of BA groups, so you have 3 units for Treble, Mid, and Bass.

heh, just trying to figure out how it works if they really split the frequency range into 4 since there are only 3 sets of drivers.

Nice. 

Pretty sure that 335 is a typo? 

 

Interesting how the transparent shell is clearer than the colored tip versions.
