Hey everyone,

Currently my super.fi 5 pros is being remolded + an additional mid driver, and this will be my biggest purchase to date for something so precarious and fragile.

I really want to make sure this investment lasts as long as possible, and I'm wondering how people take care of their customs/high-end IEM's in terms of portable use. Do you guys just stuff em down the pocket? use a small pouch? Own bomb-proof ATA travel cases?

thanks and cheers.

Some phones--notably Klipsch, Shure, and Denon--come in hard cases. I've seen hard cases on the Sony site, but for $25

If you're painfully cheap, improvise: playing card cases, cigarette cases, snuff tins.

Can the UE metal case contain the custom IEM's? I feel as if the size differences is too great to fit it all in comfortably.

My Klipsch X10 came in a hard case with substantial space for the headphones and a reasonable sized DAP. That's what I use when traveling.

I have both an old sport sunglasses case that holds a ton of stuff and also a Samba travel case from JLabs. Those pelican mini cases look pretty secure. Pricey, but secure.
