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:

FYI
Cases will be standard on new orders "soon" . They will cost around $30.

Serious? Leather cases come with all Fir models? I feel a bit sad as an early buyer/supporter lol

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.
Waiting for a proper comparison between M4 and M5! :D

I feel privileged to be one of the first to own these. I knew I wasn't getting the latest packaging. Heck my M5's are rose colored instead of the standard Red

Well i did a thing.. Just ordered my custom M5. Impressions booked for tomorrow and then the wait begins.
Blind purchase? Ballsy but I think you’ll enjoy what you get :)

well it was a tough decision . choosing this over 18t wasn't easy, but in the end i think the M5 will suit me better. I've always enjoyed iems with dynamic drivers anyway.

i gave 2 reasons for why people might not like the u/a18t in my review:

- preference for dynamic driver bass
- sensitivity to treble

i think you're making a good choice for yourself.

I think m5 is a huge step over 18t, I heard them once and it was an instant No No

I feel vindicated now for not pulling the trigger yet.

Don't agree with this, but I do think the m5 has a more exciting and overall engaging signature.
