I've shared some impressions in the Music Two thread. Here they are!

Unfortunately, I don't have a comparison to any other CIEMs, but coming from universal IEMs and headphones - these surely are the best sound/comfort/price ratio purchase I've ever done. These may not be the best CIEMs ever (as eg. I believe that both highs and low bass could possibly be a bit better), but they build a very enjoyable soundstage, the vocals are extremely pleasant (especially for jazz, like Diana Krall) and there's a lot of fun. Also, they're very revealing and are exceptional when it comes to differences in recording and mastering. Together with X5 I use I doubt there's a way to get better setup in overall terms for this money. Highly recommended!

Behold the Custom Art Anzu, the first acrylic CIEM by the Custom Art and Lime Ears.

 

8 drivers, 4way electrical, 6 way acoustical, 3 sound bores, Dual low, two mid lows, two lower highs, dual super tweeter.

 

I asked peter to make me a CIEM with a Treble extension which is equal to 1Plus2 Universal and warm mids which is on par with the UM Mentor, the UM Mentor was my last CIEM yet i wasn't happy about that fact the Treble wasn't on par with 1Plus2, i am a Treble head after all.

 

I mainly listen to J-pop, i like my Treble to be extended,fun and sparkling, where i like my mids to be warm and smooth, since i like listen to female vocals 99% of the times, also thats why i named this CIEM "Anzu", the CA Anzu also got a good bass because of the Sonion 3300 driver, i don't mind the heavy bass with HQ its fun as well. 

Can't wait to test it on Saturday, its on the way now, i will compare it with my UM Mentor and review it soon.
 

 

The CA Anzu got nothing to do with the CA series, its just a project made for me since there is no CIEM right now that is on par with the Treble of 1Plus2, Peter did compare both and this one is more refined with higher quality treble and same extension too.

here is the graphs of 1Plus2 and the CA Anzu.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not my taste, in terms of sound signature, but I hope it suits your tastes and I do like the project itself. Peter continues to impress me with his willingness to create bespoke projects with his enthusiast customers. Keep up the excellent work, Peter! :beerchug:

Between 5k and 10k look like it would rape my ear as I am treble sensitive. However the project impressed me a lot. Keep up the excellent work Peter!

lol! i know a lot of people don't like this kind of sound on head-fi, the Treble on the 1Plus2 is hotter and not as refined :P  i am sure you guys will so no to it! 

yet what do you think about TH600/900 ? i guess too much Treble 

 

but hey we all got the sound sig we like ^^

 

 i find a lot of people on Head-fi tend to like the laid back extended neutral treble with warmer mids, and more people like the warmer sig with relaxed Treble , for me that kind of of Treble is a nightmare :<  

post #944 of 1559

Well, I like my treble smooth, polite and relaxed yet extended and detailed. So yeah, everyone has their own preferences. If that floats your boat, I wish you happiness with your crystal clear ciems :happy_face1:

post #945 of 1559

Extended neutral treble with warmer mids in j-pop, k-pop and vocaloid will be very good. I have CA Pro330v2 now is good, but more extended treble will me magnificent. Peter your are ROCKS!!!
