With the right tips I find you can get amazing sound out of universals, just takes some tip rolling then you're right on par with customs

I love customs after using my K10s and Zeus forever but I have settled on Symbio hybrids and Final Type E's for my Fourtes and really don't find myself missing the custom fit, actually prefer the universals in many ways

Just got my Symbio's a couple days ago and they are awesome due to they are so easy to seal. :) I tried the medium first cause that is what I use with Spinfits, but think I have settled on the smalls which seem more comfortable, and surprisingly still get a great seal, (that is until I smile, then I lose it).

Really loving my u18t but one thing I don't like about it is the way the cable easily retains and shows every little bend that happens to it. So I am very careful not to bend it much.

Look what finally showed up! The sound quality straight out of the box is pretty stunning. Any thoughts on the burn in time required for these iem’s?

1000000000000000hrs to sound good an additional 19900000000000 hrs to sound awesome!!
Just kidding.
Tbh, I would just listen to them as they burn in. No point denying yourself the pleasure of listening to them

They do sound great right out of the box. After a couple of hundred hours I might have noticed a slight improvement in the texture and tightness of the bass! Could just be brain burn in, although DD's are more apt to change with burn in from what I've read.

I was stunned how good the combination sounded right off the box....and they are so comfortable to wear.... been listening to them for about 5 hours straight as I ‘ work from home’ and have almost no fatigue

After waiting 7 weeks, I'm happy to say they have finally arrived!!! They're absolutely stunning! However, the left ear (yes, that darn left ear) is a little too tight. I can't wear it for more than a few minutes. The right IEM's fit however is perfect! I'll have to get my left ear refitted. That means more waiting :frowning2:

I thought the turn around for a refit was much quicker than 3 weeks. That’s like buying a completely new IEM..

I wanted to use them on the U18/Fourte but thought they slid on and off too easily... you don't get that problem? Was afraid of a stray eartip getting stuck inside lol

Did y’all order them off eBay? I order mine off eBay and about a month and half ago and still don’t have them. Requested they send me another pair but no word in 3 days.

I contacted them on Facebook before ordering through eBay. They shipped right away and within the scheduled time frame. He's very responsive on Facebook. Got mine months ago
