Was looking towards a UM or Rooth cIEM.
I currently use my Ultimate Ears Triple-Fi 10s for side-sleep.
I actually don't listen to music. I listen to ASMR videos on youtube to wind-down before sleep.

I actually use these IEMs with the FLIP MOD. Where as you can see here:
They fit snugly along the contour of the ear and don't stick-out. So believe-it-or-not they are just as good as any other IEM for sleeping. They also are very very subtle when you are out in public when worn flip modded; nobody has ever pointed them out to me in awkwardness.
Anyways, I am upgrading and looking towards a custom IEM. And this is my concern of interest I wish answered:
How many drivers can put in my set-up before I start getting a bulging mass of a fetus sticking out of my ears? Which would be counter-productive for comfort and especially side sleep.
On a side-note, I don't want my Triple-fi "V" sound signature. I want something more forgiving and warmer.
If I want to make a dream list, I mind as well ask for a wider sound stage; and higher resolution detail whilst still forgiving.
