You're asking people to speculate on the value of a product that's not even officially a product yet vs. a product that's merely not been released yet? And also, for the resale value of a product that hasn't been released yet? How do you expect people to know these things? You can decide what's more important to you — a mic, or not waiting for something that may not even come to fruition. Nobody else can.
As for tips, I believe the kickstarter page has the answer.
He asked Dale a question about tips... Then he asked what the resale value for other Aurisonics' products is like. The other Aurisonics' products are released...
Regarding the tips. Dale made a statement on the Kickstarter about it:
•EDIT: SureSeal™ replaceable tips - 1 pack of 4 different sizes; Small, Medium, Medium PLUS, Large. See below for more details on new sizes.
•Optional custom tips for enhanced performance and fit
Note, the optional custom tips don't come included. They are offered by Aurisonics for a price (not including impressions). I haven't looked at the resell price of the ASG series, so can't answer the second question :p
