I missed this drop. May I know how much was the drop roughly? And when will there be another drop for these babies? Thanks.

This product has been discontinued and replaced by newer version - see here: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/customart-fibae/
I absolutely love them. These are the first CIEMs that my Tera player can drive without an amp and the sound is amaizing. Thank you Custom Art!

Thanks! Glad to hear that you enjoy them!

Mine are universals. I gave up on customs a long time ago. Extra costs, long wait time, poor fit, low resale value.
OneLove
Thank you kindly for your feedback! Enjoy!
When can we expect to be contacted for the design of the iem?
I'm so sad I missed these since this was the last run.
but thankfully there's the Fibae 2. whenever I can, I'm definitely going to get a set.
I'm sure it was already answered someplace but I'm going to ask again. If I want the custom version 1-Will I need the Add Silicone Earplugs Option? If yes what does it do? 2-I have already went to an audiologist here but the material she used for the impressions was not acrylic but some sort of a cross between sponge and rubber. Will that be ok?

Thank you for the quick reply. 1-Understood now, those are kinda of a separate product that you guys could also do if you have one's ear impressions. 2-I have called the audiologist and indeed she is using Dreve. She wasn't sure about the material but she knew the name of the company. Now I already had my ear impressions made maybe 1 year ago plus silicone ear plugs. New questios a-Are those impressions still ok to work with or should i make new ones? b- Should I send also the ear plugs? Would that help?
damx
Hey, Re A: Please send us pictures to Info@thecustomart.com typically Dreve's material are very stable and don't change over time. So we could use them as long as they are up to our standard. RE B: No
Will this ship from EU?
damx
Yes, from Poland.
damx
Ships from Poland, no taxes within EU
Anyone have a proper picture of the universals? do they come with tips?

Ok, Thanks.
Thank you! They are amazing!!
how do these compare to the fibae2?
craig_howse
Ei.xx has definitely more bass and more recessed mids. It's also more fun and thicker sounding, while F2 is more balanced and has more open soundstage. Obviously FIBAE2 has an advantage of its technology and stable sound signature practically independent from sound source.
how do these compare to the senn ie800?
Have the universal fit, tight fit, good looking, candy for the ears. So good
shit these are nice too bad im broke
I'd like to see some FR graphs of the universal version. And how do these compare to Campfire Andromedas?
Returnity
Had to really dig for it but there you go https://www.head-fi.org/threads/teaser-massdrop-x-new-custom-in-ear-monitor-available-september.778219/page-17#post-11871086
Compared to Andromeda - more bass, with more sub-bass focus, less aggressive highs, and less highs quantity.
Returnity
PS: I just realized the graphs are for custom and you asked for universal. The universal fit high frequency will depend on the sleeves used - those that come with the IEM will get you nearly identical response to custom (something like 95%)
How do these compare to the Ultimate Ears Reference CIEMs?

I made comparison to the old RM. I heard RR only briefly as a demo so I don't really remember it that well, but had at least 3 RM customs in my hands (and ears).
I'm talking about the discontinued monitors. I think I'm probably gonna wait for a different pair to drop as I've gotten used to that sweet reference sound and I don't think I could go back
I listen any sort of music except for hiphop/RnB/EDM etc. Will these sound good or am I better off buying the Fibae 1/2 or EI.3?
koyera
Depends really on how much bass you actually require in your music. My main daily go-to genre is prog-metal and Ei.xx can definitely make you head-bang with low-tuned guitars and fast paced kick drums. It copes well with most popular genres. Despite its quantity bass is fairly quick in decay so it doesn't linger too much. Though, I would say if you only listen to classical music Ei.xx might be too coloring and too bass-happy.
Hello, how does the universal fit on this compares to Westone 3 or which iem is the fitting most similar to? Thanks :)

Hey Guys, this is our last drop for Ei.xx that will ever happen so if you are on the fence this is the last call.
Also due to upcoming Christmas Holidays, we would highly encourage you to ship your ear impressions right after you join the drop - don't wait until the end of the drop., otherwise we might not be able to complete your order before the end of the year Universal fit orders and orders made from ear impressions that we already have in our archive should ship before Christmas.
CustomArt
Are you ever going to do any more collaborations with Massdrop? I really want these, but just don’t have the money for them, so maybe if you did a lower priced model at Some point I could join.
SephHaley
As of this moment I'm not really able to answer your question, sorry.
Could anyone compare these to the IE80 S?

I like blue, and a wooden or carbon fibre back would be cool too :)
Shonik
Wood and Carbon will add extra cost to the price. Other than that standard blue transparent will be free of charge. Blue Transparent will carbon will definitely look cool.
Hi, is this better than the westone 30 Nobel X and rha t20i.
qu11355
IMHO, Yes / Yes and Yes.
Price diff is 2X tho.

Hello! I'v owned the W3 for about 1.5 years and W30 for about 1 year. My opinion is that the treble is a lot more harsh in these than the W3/30 to the point where if you are used to W30s the transition would hurt a bit. However, after listening to them for a while and getting used to the sound signature of the Ei.XX, you can definitely appreciate the better detail retrieval by these.
tl;dr W30s has its treble blunted a little and is enjoyable as such, Ei.XX has better balance across the frequencies. Personally feel that I can listen to W30s longer as of now. Will edit after further listening.
edit: I have the customs and they're definitely better in a lot of ways, the details are way better. I've sort of adapted to the sound of the EI.XX and the treble doesn't seem as harsh now. W30s are still the same that they are a little blunted.
Hello,
I received the package today, after around 2 months of production. It's my first time using a Custom IEM and I am really satisfied. The fit is quite tight but it's still tolerable and I will get used to it over time. The low end is really giving me huge impact, love it so much.
The Ei.xx is easily driven, I got no problem when using it direct from my phone. The design is flawless, such detailed work. Their response to our email is fast and helpful whenever we ask them any questions.
One last thing, thank you to Piotr, Kamil, and all Custom Art Team.

Hello all,
I received my Ei.XX last week also but so far having mixed feelings compared to others. Prior to receiving the Ei.XX, the UERM was the only CIEM I owned. Most of my history with audio is through headphones and full sized speakers.
The fit of my UERM isn't perfect, it was made with a 3D scanning tool and although it is comfortable, it feels like it could be better. I went for the Ei.XX after reading about the fit and thought an ear mold may provide better results than digital only. Unfortunately, the fit of the Ei.XX is extremely tight and causes a lot of pressure inside my ear canals. I have only been able to listen to a handful of songs before it becomes too uncomfortable. It takes a scary amount of force to remove them from my ears.
As for the sound, I have more disappointments than highlights. I gave it a little time for physical burn-in as well as mental adjusting. Although the bass quantity lives up to the hype, I don't find it very detailed. The sound as a whole is a bit veiled, regardless of using it amped or directly from my phone. I find the quantity of bass to be satisfying but the rest of the sound does not match the price.
If you enjoy bass, it is definitely a smooth and easy to listen to CIEM. The problem is it has been quite genre specific for me. Modern pop and rap work well but other genres sound neutered to me. If you consider the UERM to have an airy sound, the Ei.XX is the opposite with a weighty sound, which could be good or bad depending on your sound and music preferences.
The reason I wanted to try something different than the UERM is to get a little more bass and a little more smoothness in the treble, the Ei.XX takes a step towards that direction but loses all the detail and clarity I enjoy.
Not sure if I'll send the Ei.XX back right away for a refit or try to sell it instead and cut my losses. Maybe I was expecting too much based on other comments and reviews, guess I'll see what I can work out with Piotr.
I receive mine just over a week ago-superb fit, the sound is simply stunning with a nice full low-end, the mids and highs remain crisp and well separated. They only fall slightly behind in some detail retrieval the huge low-end of my vegas (my personal favorites) What really does it for me with these is the custom fit though - they shine in situations where I can't seem to keep a universal fit driver in place and sealed comfortably while still providing me with a superb listening experience - especially in these highly mobile situations where a lot of the detail retrieval is lost anyways due to he environment. A great buy!
Just received mine, superb fit. very nice sound.
Can I check the status, when we can receive the product
What was the price for this drop?

Please send your impressions to our lab, address below: Custom Art Pulawska 28/36 02-512 Warszawa Poland
Here are key point for impressions: -Impressions have to be made from soft silicone material. -Dreve, Egger and Westone brands are recommended. -Use of foam or cotton swabs to protect eardrum is advised -Past the second bend and shall include: full concha, helix, crus helix, tragus and antitragus. -Mouth should be open with bite-block inserted between teeth in order to maximally stabilize the mandible. If a bite block is unavailable then teeth might rest against something of similar size, for example a thumb. Keeping mouth open for about 2.5 cm without talking and moving is recommended for getting full comfort and isolation. -Send us pictures of your ear impressions for first quality evaluation! -------- Turnaround for monitors will be ~5weeks, from the moment of receiving and accepting impressions in our lab. -------- Ei.xx will be shipped from Poland, with FedEx Express shipping. We are not responsible for import taxes imposed by your country. Note, EU orders are tax-free by default. ------- If you have any questions feel free to contact us: info@thecustomart.com or Massdrop representative. Thanks Piotr

This drop is kinda slow compare to others imo. Drop end nearly a week ago yet no one contact not event the order placement email.
csiubun
Yes, please do so if you haven't yet. Massdrop sent us all the details yesterday so we are are finally able to move with orders. The final order confirmation in regards to options will be at the moment of receiving ear impressions in our lab. If you selected universal, we will be sending confirmations now.
My impressions were used to make a pair of UE's, they sent the impressions back to me. Can I use those to make these CustomArt CIEM's?
