yes. the rate of change due to age will decrease as age increase. reduction in weight will also loosen the fit.
Btw you tried fitear air right? How does it sound? Did you try onkyo dp X1?

Anybody can recommend CIEMs that have sound signature close to UE TF10? The more similar the better

I guess I'll make universal then.. gonna go into slimming center in April next year. Hahahaha.
From my experience, ear canals do not change with weight. There was a period of time where I lose almost 10kg from 70kg to 60kg, my customs still fit the same.

I second the weight loss thing, 15 down and a bit more to go. Not much of a change. I did however need to get a refit done when I had my wisdom teeth removed.

Possible. But don't think too much about driver count. Tuning and cohesion most important.

Don't aim for weight loss, aim for body fat loss. In most cases, most of the weight loss is actually muscle loss rather than body fat which is of course undesirable.

Best case is lose body fats but gain muscles. In this case, it won't be surprising if your body weight doesn't change much.

E1 & Music Sanctuary
Wouldn't recommend E1. Extremely poor customer service. If want try go Music Sanctuary, although quite small they have way better service. Avoid E1 if possible. Music sanctuary just further down.

I'm not affiliated to E1 and I dunno wat issues u have with them, but I've been up there often enough and they have always been nice to me.
Additionally, I'd like to add that E1 has the most comfortable environment for demoing stuff, while most other places are either too noisy or packed.
