Well, I do prefer blue, but I saved that for the hybrid triple driver model. And I already have purple for my Pure models.... leaving only red or pink as choices. And I don't have a CIEM in this type of red, so it works for me.
Micro shell can only accommodate single or twin BA drivers. No dynamic and no dual/triple BA either. It's just too small for that.
Dunno - maybe they would do a top exit if someone asked? I do seriously dig the bottom exit though.... it's more microphonic, but in exchange you can comfortably lay down without worrying about your delicate connection or memory wire. And it's quick/easy to insert/remove. It totally makes sense for a lower priced model that would be used more casually.
