I have heard both. I own the blue "Wizard Wood" K10 that John posted (2nd from the bottom), and I heard the K10U at RMAF.
Bottom line, they sound almost identical, and that is a very, very good thing indeed. The universal captures all of the magic of the full on custom. I will say that from my listening experience, the custom fit K10 had just a bit more bass (due to a better seal in my ear, I would imagine), but you might be able to use different tips to get closer to that ideal seal. I didn't have other tips when I listened to the K10U, so I imagine a better fitting tip would give that last bit of bass.
