They are very fast. In general when they receive prints, they ship 7-10 days later at most in my experience.
 
FYI - current estimate is ~3-4 weeks since the time of receiving impressions till monitors are ready to ship.

I have to say this combo is truly mesmerizing. Ultimate users should all try it.


 
Looks like the ultimate, truly portable, set up!

Hi all,
 
In an attempt to revive this thread, I'm posting a (cell phone) photo which I just took of my first ciem's, the freshly arrived SE5 Ultimate! They are transparant black with red filling.
In the past few months, I tried to read everything I could about them. I could find a lot about the Reference version, but this thread has slowed down unfortunately. Now, I finally have them in my hands. Now I can enjoy the sound myself!
 
 

 
 
I wanted to connect them to my Lake People amp which has no mini-jack, but it seems my standard adapter plug doesn't fit on the iem cable (it does on my other iem's). Seems like the headphone jack is slightly shorter than on my other iem's. So listening with my preferred setup will not be for today unfortunately. Unless I can find a suitable adapter. Not sure if I got one.
Listening to them with my DX90 is already very promising though, but I only listened to a few songs. So, no impressions yet.
 
But happy already!

Ok, I'm jealous!  Congratulations!

They look awesome. Grzegorz received my Reference pair today and I am upgrading to the Ultimate but unfortunately have to wait a few weeks due to his existing workload I guess.

I have gone for the transparent blue colour, which I hope looks good when I get them back. It was so much easier to choose when Spiral Ears just offered two colour options on the Reference!

Let us know how you find them.

I'm interested. How would this CIEM stand up to something like HD800? any comparison would be great

From what I've been told the SE5 signature is closer to the LCD2 vs the HD800.

I recently got these IEMs as well and let me say they are amazing! I had JH16s prior but these are just on another level. I am in the market for a cable upgrade as the right angled adapter causes a lot of unwanted friction with my player, any recommendations for sellers that cater to SE connectors?

Beat Audio, they are used to my Spiral Ears requests.
