Hello. This is very late. I understand from my conversations with FitEar that they are not keen on catering to the bottom of the heap. They have a brand image, a stable staff, quality construction that arguably is the best in the custom world, and hand made earphones look better than anyone else's hand-made earphones.
A custom earphone is either a luxury product or a professional tool. It is not a toy. Some companies have developed their earphones like toys, and that is fine, but FitEar are not a Toyota, they are more of a Ferrari. They are not a Trek, they are a Guru. Hand made, specialised, and full of pride. That may or may not be your cup of tea, but anyone who has tried one (sound like or not like) can likely attest to their workmanship that really isn't rivalled.
Now, I'd prefer them to be able to do artwork and have more cable options, but, just like Ocharaku, I'm fully glad that they do things their own way rather than blanket the market with as-cheap-as-possible stuff.
