    Mucho better, IMO. Mids and vocals sounded more refined than Vega. Upper bass never intruded or colored vocals or mids.
    I was using my own tips as none of the CA tips provided an adequate seal.

    That's the same experience I had when I went from the atlas to the legend x

    For any CA fans interested in getting custom eartips for their CA IEMs, I just got mine in the mail. Pic and review below:

    Finally got my custom eartips from Campfire Audio. Took about two weeks from overnighting my impressions to receiving the final product today. Fit is fantastic (not as godly as my 64 Audio A12ts but still fantastic). Isolation is better than the foam tips but not nearly as isolated as a CIEM. Sound is nearly identical to the CA foam tips (I put a foam tip on one side and the custom on the other and then swapped, there was no discernable difference between the two. All in all, it cost $150+20 shipping (plus cost of getting and shipping out ear impressions).

    I have large ear canals so getting this was absolutely worth it. Comfort levels are OVER NINE THOUSAND and there's no longer the sensation of eartips moving back and forth thus resulting in having to readjust my IEMs every five minutes if I move too much. This purchase, for myself, was totally worth it. YMMV.

    Note: I was originally going to buy two pairs (one for my Andromeda, one for my Vega), but CA told me it wasn't needed as one pair can fit on both nozzles, so kudos to CA for saving me $150!

    Does it project out from the ear or does it stay within reasonable limits?

    Didn’t know CA made custom tips, didn’t see it in their website, how do you order it?

    Seems like it's via e-mail request at the moment. That's how I did it, I kinda stumbled upon it. I e-mailed CA asking if they knew of any reputable companies who could make custom eartips which resulted in them telling me they can do it in-house.

    Guess they won’t. Diminishing their re-sale value will affect the original value also. Bloody truth.

    I wouldn't rule it out. The biggest obstacle would have been how to incorporate TAEC into a custom. And thankfully, it seems Campfire isn't as strongly motivated by profits as other companies. One of the reasons I respect Ken & Co. so much. Even with IEMs costing over $1k, I daresay their IEMs offer great value.

    The Comet is definitely great value.

    Looks like Orion is next for me.

    I've emailed JD twice at Campfire asking about this and no response... :/

    I'm using the BTX1 with the Comets right now and it sounds ok. Doesn't really do the same justice as the stock cable (and I'm guessing an upgraded cable is even better).

    Still on the fence whether to go full BT or wired..
