Just seen - not keen on the blue motif, or the case for that matter - but have to say, they do look great tongue.gif

I finally gave in. I ordered CF on Black Friday, and after enquiring about my order learned that I could either go acrylic and have it in a couple of weeks, or stay with CF and wait for "months". I guess I don't mind too much, I think acrylic will be better for showing off the driver layout, but it doesn't exactly leave me with a nice feeling.

When I had contact with Corbyn on the same matter, she told me that mine could be shipped in a month... almost the same as when I would change to acrylic... Furthermore, there are already some Nov. orders shipped so I would suggest everybody to just hold on....

I'd certainly raise an eyebrow if an acrylic Roxanne was shipped from now, in a couple of weeks.

I am a newbie. What should nose isolation be like? The isolation is not as much as my Shure SE846. Would that be a candidate for a refit? I did follow the insertion videos on YouTube.
If they fit comfortably in your ear for lomg periods and you get a seal even if you move your head and jaw then you are fine. Some universala may isolate better than customs depending on tips, mostly with foam tips. I found the 846 to be very isolating even compared to some of my customs.

True, it depends on the tips you use. Isolation can exceed customs. However, the challenge is to keep or maintain that level of isolation when you move. In my experience as soon as I open my jaw uiem just pops out of my ear. With customs you get the same level of isolation regardless of what you are doing.

I have found the same with regards to isolation with the Etymotic ER4 series being the best isolating IEM I gave ever tried. I also notice that with customs your voice (if you speak while wearing them) seems a lot louder than it does when you are wearing a universal IEM. I imagine this is due to the acrylic picking up the vibrations & enhancing them & the foam/rubber etc of a universal absorbing them...

Check the impressions thread. That's as close as you can get for now.

Probably due to the fact that many people haven't even received theirs yet xp

Not picking but I have two unirversals and bags of tips
And a custom give a much better level of isolation and comfort
Others should be saying the same
