Hey group. I'm thinking of getting a custom IEM made using my (currently unusable) Audio-Technica CK10's TWFK balanced armatures, but with an added Sonion 3300 dual BA from a pair of (also currently unusable) Shure SE535.

The reshell would be made by AAW, whose executive assistant indicated that they can do such a reshell and adjust the crossovers (Sonion 3300 for bass, low TWFK for mids, high TWFK for highs).

Should I go for it? Or stick to reshelling the CK10 as they are?

I want to retain the CK10's signature for the most part, but add fullness and extension to the low end, and maybe make the high treble (above 10k) shine even more (I like a V-shape sound). I don't know if or how much the reshelled mold in itself will improve the bass response or affect sound signature overall.

TL;DR: Experience with hybrid frankenstein-type reshells, AAW reshells, 2 low 1 mid 1 high configuration in any IEM/CIEM, Sonion 3300 and TWFK balanced armatures, CK10x3/4/5/6 reshell, etc...

Eeehhhhh...unless you are doing the mods yourself, stick to reshelling the ck10 parts by themselves, so the sound stays stock and you can tune to your liking from there.
