Anyone please help. Is it a trick of Photoshop or the real one. With 6 drivers each side so what will be.

Also really hurt to see 5 balanced drivers each side in here

I call fake. The white frame is copied from the 11 Pro; notice how all the other frames are unique?

Also, why would they swap out a drum kit for a singer? That image doesn't equal bass to my eyes....

And in this kind of cutom IEM race, why would bass be considered the most important thing right now? Doesn't make sense, in my opinion.

So again, my conclusion is that it is Photoshopped by a bored person.

As a fellow PS user, please tell the original poster on the Thai forum to try harder (the devil is in the detail)

I knew it was fake as soon as it said six drivers. No need to analyze the pictures. Six drivers are serious overkill in IEMs not to mention impossible spacing of the six drivers in custom molds.

I second that. Also in Japanese link above they mentioned the one with small ear canal couldn't make IEM phone with 5 drivers.
