Does fir audio have a 3d printer (and I can send my stl files)? Or the acoustic system probably doesn'allow that right?

Or will should I make ear moulds?

What's the typical turn around time for M5 custom. Any members from Uk/`eu bought from Fir recently?. did you get hit with customs charges ?

Oh, I won't know until I settle on a sound. But after I probably would only be using the one I liked.
Fair enough. You have to avoid customs then. Although I believe that customs have the "true" tuning of iems, since they don't distort sound like universals do

Interesting are you saying you prefer the sound signature of dx160 over dx228 ex? How do they compare?
I don’t necessarily prefer it, the 160 is just a more convenient dap (it’s smaller) and the SQ is very good so I don’t feel I’m missing out.

You can buy from EU Dealer, Dune Blue from The Netherlands. They are the official dealer for FIR in Europe, and in Denmark they have a shop they provide this.

Check with Michael in Dune Blue, you won't have to pay any customs.

Does the new leather case comes with all the new M4/5 orders? Or do you have to pay extra?
Wished the leather case came together with the M5 to set it apart from the rest, unfortunate for the early adopters it wasn't available then :frowning2:

I also like those leather cases more than the (aluminum?) ones that come with the M5.

My M5's came in the tin case as well. The case is a new product just recently made available. It is not even up on the web site. I recently sold my EA LEO II cable and took less money so I could keep the case..... Now I am going to order another FIR case for my M5's

I will confirm if the leather case is standard on all new orders and get a price for any additional cases.
