    The faceplates are separate from the body of the iem. And the faceplates sold with the le are available separately for purchase, and can be used with the og erlky. You have always been able to purchase a bunch of different faceplates for the erlky...the one that is sold on the le (rose gold)...

    The luxury market doesn’t provide a guarantee that price increases incrementally with incremental increases in quality. In reality, price nearly always increases exponentially with incremental increases in quality. An opinion is fine, and whether or not something is worth 6x more is also just...

    to get ultra serious for a minute... why are you attempting to judge something you haven't heard? the only person missing out...is you. Your ears deserve a chance to try new stuff out! : ) and like @Rockwell75 said, what one guy says (whose opinion, as rockwell mentioned, is completely...

    perhaps i was misunderstood. buying things primarily to "own" them, rather than to actually "use" them for their intended functional purposes, is a bit of a sad thought to me. not at all a dig at you, @Rockwell75, as i reckon you quite enjoy actually listening to the gear you buy.
