I think we should have different forum sections for custom and universal iem's since they really are a different market and it would make it easier to see what your looking into in terms of relevance

/me think we already have enough sub-forums.

Or else we would need even one for earbuds, and one for portable headphones (those with a headband). Meaning four (4) vs. the current one (1) sub-forum.

100% nay

They are both IEM's and I like to see comparisons of SQ between all IEMs .

I think it is entirely appropriate to compare UE Trips to Livewires in terms of SQ, for example

I agree with krmathis ... it's just gets ridiculous if you keep dividing sections into sub-sections.

How long would it be before someone says there should be separate forums with single driver customs, dual driver customs, triple driver customs ... etc?

Or breaking up the universal sub forums so that SE530s and Triple.Fis aren't in the same forums as Senn CX300s

... I think the portable earphones forum is fine as it is.

I think we should have a sub-forum for my gear and the stuff that I might want to buy someday. It would be difficult to monitor, so I would have to do it.

I wonder how many custom IEMs today in order to open a new sub-forum?

If we open a new custom sub-forum, then there'll be another poll about dividing the Full-size forum into Dynamic and Electrostats.

maybe seperate forum for iem/earphones and one for portable headphone but no need for further separation. (or just put the esw10 back where it belongs)

Custom does not equates to be better than universal too imo.

no way!!, use the search function its actually a pretty decent search on head-fi; and there are other ways to find what you want other than randomly opening threads. there's too much cross information between them anyway. how about custom tips what would those poor outcasts do then

they wouldn't know where they belonged

I think we should have a sub forum just for phone amp combos, like a UE TF and pico, and LW and cmoy, and a ibuds, and single power extreme... how about it who's with me. FREEDOM!!!!! *charges of to slay the dragon*
