FWIW, I compared the demos to my custom Roxannes, and for me the demos definitely lacked top-end and had a stronger bass at similar settings. I only spent about 15 minutes though, went back and forth with a few songs, tried out 9am, 11am, and 2pm on both. It would be nice if anyone who tried that could weigh in as well, I don't recall impressions from people on how they perform as customs vs. universals.
I do feel that the differences could probably be mostly diminished w/ proper tips though.
