REVIEW | CustomArt Music One --- Single Driver Silicone CIEM - Page 2

post #16 of 35

Thank you for this wonderful write up, I love to try out a custom IEM but the cost and risk associated with not liking the sound makes it harder. The customArt seem to be a no brainer. Looking forward to reading this review over the weekend.

Amazing review, thank you!

One of very few exemplary reviews I've seen so far!

Thank-you for helping to build anticipation for my Pro330.  Custom Art seems to be firing on all cylinders.

Did he get sick from eating your homework? wink.gif

 

Great review!

Seriously though, great write-up, and nice looking monitors. I love to see a DIYer turn pro and wish much success to Piotr and his company. 

 

Maybe he can chew up all the extra DACs and amps laying around your house; that way your workload will decrease significantly!

Maybe from eating your homework! In all seriousness, he had esophageal varices and duodenal ulcers due to congenital pyloric stenosis. He's better now.

I've never heard of anything getting ulcers from a stenotic pylorus. Wouldn't it prevent acid (and everything else) from getting into the duodenum?

 

All the same, I'm glad all is well.

It doesn't have to be acid or H. pylori --- imagine a stoppage of CCK, somatostatin, pancreatic lipases, bile, and food going through a stricture every single day. Duodenal ulceration can occur secondary to chronic inflammation and hypomotility, of which stenosis is a contributing cause.

 

Anyway, this is sort of OT. Thanks for the concern, though.

This is all way over my head. I'm pretty sure you guys are talking about farming though. I once grew some carrots.

Hello Tomscy,

     Hope this finds you (and your canine friend) well. I have a set of Heir Audio 4Ai. This was my first set of IEMs, and I have no experience with other brands. My main reference (other than live acoustical music) is my main system. It is flat in frequency response, except the bottom octave is about two dB hot. This system produces a very realistic soundstage and amazing depth of image. I find that my HA 4Ai, RS Shadow, CLAS, iPod classic, Toxic cables set up is quite similar in sound. From your description, I feel that I might like the Music 100 over the Pro Audio 100. I really like my universal IEMs, so I want to get a set of customs. These look like a possible alternative to Heir Audio and their somewhat higher price. I realize that this may be comparing apples to oranges (single vs multi drivers). Curious to know what you thoughts may be. Thanks in advance for your help, and thanks for taking time to write such a great review.

Thanks. Well, I do have a set of 4.A (not Ai, though I've heard the 4.Ai quite a few times), so I can try to compare the two, though it'll be my no means precise. If I compare between the 4.A and the Pro100, I'll notice that the Pro100 sounds noticeably cleaner, because the lower midrange of the 4.A/Ai is elevated. This elevation causes voices to be pushed much closer to the ear than compared to the Pro100. At the same time, the 4.A sounds more detailed and has more of an "enveloping" feeling that allows the listener to feel more engrossed by the music.
