    Top 5 worst things about IEM's

    Is The Ultimate Ears® UE-10 Pro™ Worth Getting?

    They are way overpriced just like all custom products but I say they are worth it.

    I think I will have them remove the wax filters, the highs seem to be kind of muted...not much but I can certainly notice. They said they can clean them for me anytime for free anyway. I also found out that when I put them in with my mouth open, they provide better isolation.

    One Final IEM request...

    February, I think. FS mod is nice but if your ear canals are at 90° angle, they will still be sticking out quite a lot.

    One Final IEM request...

    For that price, definitely the Super.fi 3(they don't come with the metallic case). However, many people seem to have a comfort issue with them while UM1 seems to fit anyone. UM1 is also smaller so it doesn't stick out of your ears like the Super.fi's.

    Custom molded Super.fi 3 - pictures

    So, as I promised, here they are. They are so damn comfortable...amazing. They actually isolate better than any foam, especially low frequency sounds which is great for commuting. I also noticed that soundstage is quite a bit better. Bass is more pronounced, didn't have enough time to actually...

    Please help decide which Ear Phones would be best for me.

    Either Super.fi 3(which sounds even better than Shure E3c imo) or Westone UM-1. But Super.fi 3 might not be comfortable for you, depends on whether you have smaller ears or not.

    Custom molds - venting?

    Hi, my audiologist is about to make me custom molds for my Super.fi 5 pro in a few days. Here's the deal, he says there will be little to no highs and that ear drums won't like the pressure if he won't make venting. I haven't noticed on any of your UE or Sensaphonics customs any sort of venting...
