    Can anyone compare differences in sound for custom vs. universal?

    I've spent a mint on custom IEM's...truth told, I think a good seal with universals using quality tips is on par or better than a CIEM.

    I'm jealous of those who can get a good fit with universals- I've tried all tips of all brands/shapes/sizes and haven't found anything that holds a seal in my ears for more than 10minutes without needing a readjustment :pensive:

    Do you have OCD?
  6. ChrisSC
    Definitely not OCD... you should see my work desk! I just find that any ear tip that gives a super deep seal starts to make my inner ear itch after about 10 minutes, and anything with a shallow fit can never keep a seal for more than a few minutes, so I'm constantly readjusting them since I lose so much bass. I've got a fickle set of ear canals!

    @DrGraceW : Any updates on the success or failure of the AW900 innards within the Capri shell?

    Can anyone say until where does the W900's treble roll off please? Thanks :)

    I currently have the AW tour units, and will say that I'm very impressed with the W900. Tough choice: buy a W900 or a new DSLR hmm.

    To my ears, W900 is more balanced from low to high, and has better clarity, imaging, detail retrieval, and separation (compared to Vega and U12).

    OK, I was able to compare the Tia Fourte to the universal W900 on tour. The following was posted as a reply elsewhere, but I think it makes sense even without the original context.

    My first 10-15 minutes with the Tia Fourte actually left me mildly disoriented - something I've never experienced before. Switching to the W900 felt normal.

    At some point during my second stint with the Fourte it seems my brain caught on, and now the experience is *very* oriented. Effortless keeps coming to mind. There after, when switching from the Fourte to the W900 (which I really liked) most of that "very oriented" sense is lost and and the W900 seems to be working to impress me (with its rich bass and extended highs).

    As @Torq mentioned, spending an hour with the W900 and I'm back to thinking "Wow, I really like this headphone".

    If you are happy with your W900 and are not interestedspending even more I suggest you just keep enjoying them, and not listen to the Fourte.

    Putting cost aside, if the W900 is a headphone you really like the odds are high you'll find yourself quite moved by the Fourte.

    The W900 treble goes on for days and days. The most accomplished treble extension I've heard in an IEM. But I haven't heard them all.
