I compulsively recycle gear. Half of this hobby for me is not so much looking for the perfect sound as it is just playing with newer shiny toys. Difficulty reselling is the primary reason I have not gotten into CIEMs.
I think that is what has stopped me getting into customs so far. If I am going to drop £500+ on an in-ear, I would want to know that it would still carry a similar resale value if I ever decided to sell it on, which is difficult with high end customs. I like the idea of the custom seal for travelling and long-haul flights, but the only ones that have tempted me so far are the Lear customs I mentioned above, as I want to try their tuneable universal version anyway and the cost is stupidly low for a full custom (c. £200-£250) so worth the gamble for something that might become my stock commuter "earplug".
