I'm more concerned that the aesthetic option will be limited. Yes, that's my ultimate aim; not really in it for the sound, but for having anime literally on my ears. I mean, that's what CIEMs are truly for right? Guys?
Hmm... $600 is a bit too high $500 is my absolute max, since I have to consider making the impressions and shipping, with possible bad fitting and all. I wonder if I should stick with Heir Audio and look for a used mid price pair. I know they have this X-th ownership program.
Or maybe I should go look up that new Singapore CIEM company since that's practically next door come summer. The interesting thing about them is that they're using 3D printing to lessen the cost of making the shells. Found out about it through tom's blog's Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151596449347922&set=a.10151507741317922.1073741825.71764152921&type=1
