Why would the Universal Roxanne be larger than the Custom version?  If you've seen many customs, they're mostly empty space, in order to fill up a person's ear.

 

The Universal version is no longer constrained to the size of a person's ear and can be made as small as possible, containing just the drivers and components.  If the Universal Roxanne's housing is too large for someone, there's little chance the Custom will fit either.

I think the opposite side of you, because of the ability to fit in a person's ear canal, the housing of a custom can be flexibly made smaller, but not in case of the universal version.

I've seen the pictures of universal Kaiser 10, and I think the housing may also be a little bigger than the custom version too.

:eek:

 

The TG!334 stays, to this day, the best earphones/headphones I've heard (against the HD 800, the K1000, a couple Final Audio Design IEMs ...).

Thank you, Mr. Parrot. I'm still entitled to my opinion and preferences.

No offense but considering you say that you have a hearing defect most everyone here shouldnt give much weight to your comparisons unless they are in the same boat. Very useful to those few people , bad advice for everyone else.

Today I was at the audiologist for my Impressions...
But he used foam instead of cotton and told me to move my jaw instead of a biteblock... Is that bad?
Should I take new one?

Biteblock is not required. But for perfect fit your jaw must be open as wide as you can while the impression cures in your ear.

Just wondering, if I were to get a JH custom with the flying girl in milled aluminium instead of the standard colours they offer, it will be considered custom artwork right? And if so roughly how much more will they charge?

That's completely wrong. A bite block is used to average the spread of closed to singing etc. Completely open would screw up the fit unless you like to walk around that way. When I did mine I simply did a relaxed jaw position (slightly spread) and found something smaller than a bite block to secure that position. Bite block sideways etc. I felt 1" was a bit much for my use since I have a significant overbite as well. Those with overbites should also be careful to keep the fore/aft position as normal. 

 

Moving things around while it sets if a great way to not get a seal. It will be comfy and useless.

Both are a hit and miss.

Both have drawbacks and advantages exclusive to themselves.

4 week turn around is standard, UM is 13+.

Resale = uIEM > cIEM

 

This last point is the biggest factor in my own decision.

That depends on the individual and how/if your earn canals change shape with jaw movement.  A good audiologist will check this before progressing with your impressions.  Also, it's best to listen to the advice of the company that is building your CIEMs.  i.e. Custom Art prefers a small bite block, mouth only slightly open.  I think a closed or slightly open mouth is more common for silicone.

I'm really happy to see JH Audio offer universals for the Roxanne and will be interested to see if they offer universals on their older models as well.
