they are very different beasts. Phantoms are very thick in the mids. I still have my custom phantoms. Was actually thinking of selling it but then again, I would almost miss it. It is really different from everything out there recently
I wasn't comparing the Phantom's to the Odin's. I like Odin a lot better. Not in the same league. I was just pointing out that for my CIEM experiences, the custom versions always sound better and are easy to use. I also hate rolling tips, just like I dont' tube roll my tube gear. That's just me though and I realize that 'rolling' is a big part of the fun for many. :). Whatever works for us all.

Hi guys, just wanted to give my 2cents: i own the odin in universal and the lx in custom. i love the custom lx and i thought about getting the odin as customs as well, but i found out that i not only enjoy to switch to different iems occasionally but also from custom to universal. when i change from custom to universal i sometimes feel a releave in my ears. i therefore probably could not go custom all the way with all my iems. Donmt know if that makes sense… anyway, odin are great 🤓

+1 for Symbio peel. They give me the best seal and help tame the mids on my Odin and EVO.

I too enjoy rolling tips, but also I have some ear issues where the shape of my outer canals changes at times (and then changes back). I have a custom UERM and there were times when I just couldn't get them to fit. Now I just use my uni Zeus. As to Odin, people here have posted that due to its size it won't work for them (based on impressions already in the hands of EE).

It was only a matter of time. Expecting announcement.
OK, I admit to feeling in the dark here. What type of announcement is expected?

@CL14715 posted a month or two back about some EE developments that would be released soon. He made a trip to HQ pre Odin release so I’m guessing we should see something soon.

That's a fair analysis, I would say.

I have a pair of ESR MK II incoming and wonder what tips people favor with them. Interested in Acoustune AEX50 but they have a rather narrow inner nozzle diameter = 3.7mm. What diameter sizes are compatible with ESR MK II? Anyway "tips" welcomed (pun intended)!
