The CustomArt FIBAE is a high-end six-driver IEM with the world’s first Flat Impedance design (patent pending). The result of months of hard work and countless hours of testing, its frequency response is closely based on that of its predecessor, the Ei.xx, with improvements to accommodate feedback from the Massdrop community. Each ear features two sub-low drivers, a single low driver, a proprietary mid-high driver, and two high-frequency drivers, which work together to deliver a fun, powerful sound. It’s thick bodied and bass focused, with deep-reaching sub-lows, a balanced midrange, and smooth and detailed highs. The Flat Impedance Balanced Armature Earphone (or FIBAE) technology helps provide a uniform sound signature independent of the connected source, and thanks to the more versatile tuning, this IEM is well suited for a wide variety of music genres. Each pair bears the CustomArt logo on the left piece and the Massdrop logo on the right. The logos can be removed at checkout, if desired.
Note: At checkout, you'll be able to customize a variety of features (see "Options" section below). We’re excited to be able to offer the premium wood and carbon options at the base price on this drop, as they are typically an additional $15 per side.
For custom IEMs, you’ll need to visit an audiologist for ear impressions. After the drop ends, you'll be responsible for having impressions made with an audiologist and sending them to CustomArt in Warszawa, Poland (address will be provided). Or, you can choose universal IEMs. As these are handmade to order with your desired colors and graphics, please expect a 6-week turnaround and note we cannot accept returns. Also note that universal IEMs may not fit everyone, and they aren't covered by the refit warranty. For this option, canals will be the same color as the shell.
ORDERING: Custom in-ear monitors are like custom suits. They need to be tailored to your body. So as part of the ordering process, you'll need to visit an audiologist for ear impressions. Then, you’ll need to mail those impressions to the CustomArt lab in Warszawa, Poland (address will be provided). The vendor must receive tracking info on the impressions within 3 weeks of the drop completing, or the offer will be canceled and refunded—no exceptions or extensions.
Head-Fi user subguy812 gave the FIBAE five stars, saying, "The bass is very good for a BA IEM and holds its own relatively well compared to some the DD configurations I own. Honestly, it is just excellent in general; not important if it’s a BA or DD. It provides the smooth musicality that one craves when wanting to listen to and enjoy their favorite music. The signature does an excellent job of portraying rock music and its gritty sound."
