How was the process of having one made in Japan? how many fitting/impression do you need to go through and most importantly how is the sound quality?

The female adapter is quite bulky but at least now I can use the same cable on the WM1Z and Paw Gold.

I need it terminated to 2 x 3-pin xlr to be able to use my Z1R balanced from my balanced home amp

I agree it's not cheap especially if you have to ship it to the US, but an adapter will be even more expensive.

Yeah, the reason why I brought that up again is because I have some people who have been thinking about getting them, but then goes on and compare between the cost of an adapter vs the cost of a new cables with cheap plugs/wires, so on and on.....I just have to say that these adapters are only viable if you already have high-end cables, otherwise, if you are choosing them for economical reason, it isn't.

These female 4.4mm itself is very expensive ($55), so to those who are looking to get the adapters, keep in mind that they won't come cheap :)

Where can you order the 4.4mm female plug ?

You can read the (short) Just Ear thread below where another user and I documented the ordering and making process:
https://www.head-fi.org/f/threads/sony-announces-the-just-ear-brand-of-custom-iems.739725/page-11

Simply put best fitting CIEM I've ever owned and SQ is unmatched by anything because the sound signature is custom tuned to my exact sound preference. I haven't heard any IEM that even comes close to approaching how my MH1 satisfies every frequency range since I got them.

After inserting into 3.5mm headphone jack, I can feel a bit of play (wiggle) - meaning, though the headphone jack gets inserted completely there is a bit of play (looseness) inside the jack which can be felt by slight wiggle. Is that common? I dont have 4.4mm balanced cable to test that jack.

Call me paranoid but for $1k I would expect not to happen - it doesn't happen in my onkyp dp-x1 or the fiio x5 iii.

Thanks
