Thanks Gofre !
They look good , inspired by the ToGo design for the nozzle.
The guide on the cable is longer than on other UM CIEM frown.gif

nice to see Um jumping on the lower driver # hybrid market.
Looking forward to the impressions
would be a bit worried about the shipping times UM quote wink.gif (especially coupled with specials *cough*)
I'd buy a pair but the design with the really wide nozzle suggesting really shallow insertion and poor isolation and fit scares me off (the reason I don't own RDB+ as well frown.gif )

We were also told the same thing by UM's rep over here, something about the 2x and 3x being exclusive for my country only. The lid is also carved differently with the name of my country on it. Not sure what UM is doing though.

interested in basshead impressions, particularly in comparison with AX-60 and the like.

Congrat's on the new job.

 

I'm interested in the isolation as I wear iems at work to block out noise (machinery, chatter etc). 

 

Also quoting your image, what's the deal with

 

 

Is it a vent of some description and does it affect comfort?

 

Cheers

I tried them down at Kool Audiophiles and wasn't particularly impressed, but there may be differences between this new release and the VN version.

I'm interested in a basshead perspective as well. Trying to decide on whether to pull them trigger on some Aurisonics Asg-2s of try these guys out.

From the look of it I suppose little to none alteration has been made, just an observation though, since I won't have a chance to listen to the UK version. 

 

Ironically if the UK version is really stellar people here might question what happened to the VN version, considering the similar price tags (with vouchers).

Any news on these before the offer runs out?
