That's a really tough call. I would almost always recommend a great pair of CIEMs over universals for me personally. Mostly because of the custom fit, and great seal. Unfortunately they are harder to sell should you decide to do that down the road, and they are a little harder to test (for me). There will always be a little difference between a universal test set and the ones that will be molded to your ears. I also have narrow ear canals so it's harder to get a great fit and alignment with universals, but my CIEMs always sit perfectly. Just one man's opinion, the best advice is to try and get your hands on everything in your budget and see what sounds best to you!
