Quick review(Ill try to make a more comprehensive one later on)

 

Setup: FiiO X5 - FiiO L1 IC - FiiO E12 - FlipEars Aisha

Quick review
Lows: Compare to dynamic drivers (senn's) the bass lacks a bit of punch as the BA drivers are not pushing alot of air but the body and the details are great.
Mids: This what get me in to thinking why this is the best IEM for me, Vocals are forward and are like in line with the lows and highs without any veils and just like the lows the details are so awesome especially on string instruments
Highs: The highs are well detailed but with the very sensitive drivers this can easily pickup sloppy high records and no sharp sounds can be heard on the high highs
Sound Stage: I was expecting a bit narrow stage when listening but behold its almost the same as my other iems but the thing is there are clear separation on every instrument or sound source while listening


No micophonics noted on the cable
Superb isolation and comfort (Given as it is made based on the shape of the ear)
No hiss

​universal version is sadly the same price compared to the custom. the only difference is the cost of the ear molds. so just go straight custom!
 
checked out the 4 and 5 driver. the 4 driver is slightly v shaped.. warm, punchy, good mids. the 5 driver is quite neutral without being analytic.. great mids, great highs due to the super tweeter..a bit "bass light" if you want something more "fun". ended up ordering the 5 driver since i wanted a neutral CIEM.
 
send them a PM on facebook.

...then there's the Axis, 6 BA per ear side. This pair could up the "fun" factor before heading out to the +10 drivers category...

  I heard a lot of local artists back home use FlipEars. I'll pay them a visit when I go home for winter break.

... Local (really well known both local and abroad) as well as expat artists...

Are there any measurements or FR graphs available for their CIEMs? It's nice to hear positive impressions from people who've tried their models, but measurements would help me decide which models I should seriously consider.

Im a little bit hesitant to order (unless i can audition some) since there;s no review of it, and only local artists are their main clients. and Im wondering if it's worth to buy instead of unique melody considering the price. I hope someone here who have iem/custom brands like lear, unique melody, etc to compare with so that we all have the idea. Thanks

... Your absolutely correct right there. "Let your ears be the judge"... I can share the bottom of the range IEM with relation to a club member / colleague's impressions on the Genesis, their 1 BA IEM. Compared with my W10 they sounded basically the same. Another colleague has ordered Aisha CIEM 3 BA. He has the Jomo 6R and will post impressions very soon. I've auditioned the 6Rs as well...
