    SE530s or do I go all the way for custom fits?

    Well, for me, after I owned the UE10 Pro, I would say if you go for the custom, the experience of owning one definitely worth the extra $$. But for me, even though I go all the way for the customs, I still can not resist the attempt to get Shure e530. However, if you ask me if UE10 Pro...

    Should I "Downgrade"?

    If you use the headphone out to listen to music, I find the 60GB iPod Photo the 4th Gen IPod to be a lot worse than the 5th Gen. However, the lineout, I find is about the same. If I am in your situation, I would rather sell the current 30G video ipod and upgrade to an 80G iPod Classic.

    Question for the UE10 owners...

    I am almost on my third year of UE10 pro, and the housing is still strong. As for the yellow stain, you can wipe it off very easily after each use, so that won't be a problem. I think you will be very happy with UE10 pro.
