i thought i would make a thread about the question above.
I'm curious that with the current market there seems to be a growing number of 500-100 universals iems. For example, the Shure 846, the sennheiser ie800, and what seems like the weston w60.
what i'm thinking is that if your already willing to drop that amount of cash for these "universals" (that emphasize on isolation and of course sound--> none of them are really low isolating or shallow fitting)
why not go customs?
there are already some companies now that are trying to make customs more accessible to the broader consumers with prices even as low as in the sub 500$ range (cosmic ears, ambient acoustics, alclair reference,custom art )
Any thoughts on why these companies push universals into such a high price?
Pros and cons on universals and customs?--> the 1 thing that i can think of is that universals are easier to resell---> but their already so high in price, your gonna have a hard time finding someone willing to buy it, just my 2 cents
if i had the money i would definitely go customs (probably will never go there though)
What do you guys think?
