    Yeah, it does require a little bit more extra volume - not in a sense that it's hard to drive i.e. requires more power to properly saturate sound, you simply have to turn the volume up, that's because Black's SPL is rather low. And if you are looking to get more V-shaped sound from Blacks adding volume is natural reflex - it has to do with fletcher munson curve
    I get what you mean. I compared Blacks with our whole line up when designing it and I felt like details were always there, just not as upfront/forward. Analogy I came up with is that other IEMs try to cram in and push details on the stage, while Blacks create an extra space on the stage and expand it for all details to fit. At least that's how I hear it and how I would describe it.
    Regarding the tuning, indeed Blacks are not tuned for super crispy and airy treble, nor for ultimate selectivity/resolution, Blacks are designed for fatigue-free long listen with tone and timbre in mind first.

    Sounds ideal for an everyday carry work horse unit. I tend to long sessions as I listen at work (no more than 2 hours at a time without a good 20 minute half hour break mind)to block the noise out.

    Same here. Listen a lot at work as at home I have a 2 year old running around haha. Night time listening for me. Put these in and I'll just really enjoy the music. Perfect for my needs and sound.

    Fantastic set.

    Just got 'em, pretty nice sounding sets with nothing bad that really sticks out (unless you're a huge basshead who needs whole lotsa bass quantity-wise), lovely vocals, nicely weighted notes, controlled highs, looks like it'll be a keeper for me. Well done Custom Art team.

    Just listening to some Peter Green DSD files at work. Absolutely stunning.

    Just curious, does anyone have a comparison of these to the Massdrop Plus Universals? Maybe I'm just blind but couldn't find any comparisons anywhere. Thanks

    Meanwhile, my ear molds and payment just got into their hands, so now I get to finally jump into the production queue. So... <resets calendar countdown>

    Please keep those listening impressions and glamor shots coming! It'll keep the spark alive.

    Happy to hear you're having this much fun!

    I'm eager to hear the fibae Black myself! :)

    Very interesting, in these closed up you can see the lines from the 3D printer process.

    Cannot wait to get mine!

    They're extremely well made! The shells, wiring, cable all very very nice.
    Oh and they sound damn good too :wink:
