What would be the advantages?

The sound quality will probably improve, since you wouldn't need the foam tips anymore. Also, about the same or better isolation, better comfort and insertion is faster.

Some say custom tips can have bad effects on custom tips sound quality. Well I didn't try it myself but, I heard people talking about it. So it depends on the situation I guess.

 

Edit: Huge typo, corrected.

A bad effect on iems you mean? I actually don't understand why people would want to buy uIEMs and then make custom tips for them. If you haven't already bought the uIEM, why not buy a cIEM in the first place... 

I wouldn't be surprised if custom tips have a bad effect on the sound for some uIEMS, some uIEMS might not be tuned for such a long bore. And the custom tip might have a smaller, or bigger bore diameter than ideal.

I noticed today that the Shure olives now have a filter inside them. How long ago did they change their eartips? Any impressions on sound differences?

I did not at all care for the sound from my perfect fitting UM56 custom tips. It totally collapsed the soundstage and had a far too much in the head wired to the brain type of sound. Virtually no space.

I own the se535 and I always had problems with the sealing, even tried using different tips on each side/ear, till I found by accident a card promoting the custom sleeves from sensaphonics inside my shure's box. I give them a call and by luck they have an office at walking distance from work. The sleeves solve my problem of fitting. I never make a comparison between the different tips and the customs sleeves but I'm satisfied with their performance. That's why I call the sensaphonics' guys to ask about the sleeves for the se846. I will definitely get one of those custom sleeves if I ordered the se846.

Several people, including myself, have noticed both fit, comfort and sonic improvements to using full custom silicon sleeves for the FS Atrio. The sonic improvements most mentioned are to soundstage.

Perhaps it is different with the shure custom tips, perhaps it is similar.

I don't use any EQ and play lossless files and I heard everything very detailed without any coloration and also I feel the music very "out of my head" instead of "injected in my head" using custom sleeves with the se535.
Maybe some people think that the custom sleeves are improvised but in this case they have Shure's approval.

I found this review that sounds very interesting: "Far superior sound than the custom earphones both my wife and I own that cost over $1,200. So yes, the argument about: "for that price I can get a custom" does not stick. Good luck getting the same experience and sound quality from a custom. It won't happen. The SE846 and its low pass filter have nothing to do with a "custom" earphones where you are basically paying a premium because they were made after your ear canal mold but nothing really exciting going on inside that sanded vinyl piece. Aside from the fact that you cannot resell your custom earphones. Furthermore, the SE846 is NOT about adding more drivers and putting a higher price tag on it. It's about delivering an experience and sound quality that you do not have from anything else being manufactured out there. Nothing comes close to the sound of the SE846. I'm very careful with what I write. I know thousands of our customers are hardcore audiophiles and I don't sign my name on something I don't honestly, fully believe in. I'm 100% convinced you have not listened to anything like the SE846, unless you have listened to one."

When my JH16 pro's arrive I'll see how good my "luck" is at getting the same sound quality. In fact I'll go out of my way to find some SE846's to compare with.

 

Second point, I don't know what you're talking about with your "sanded vinyl", since most CIEM's are made from Acrylic and Silicone. As far as there's nothing exciting going on in CIEM's, I'd like to see you fit 8 BA drivers in an earpiece and have them be phase coherent.

We're talking about a review written by an earphone dealer who literally had 3 (three) minutes with the e846 and then wrote something people have been making fun of for weeks now.

So, no need for jimmies to be rustled.
