I have a problem getting a good fit with universal IEMs. So I'm looking to get a cIEM for gym use that isn't too expensive and these seem to be a good deal.

Sadly, as mentioned before, after seeing my impressions Kevin from Null audio told me that A1D will be difficult to make due to the larger bore it requires.

So I might ask them to tune the A2H with a bit more bass.

P.S: At this price I'm really not expecting to sound anywhere close to the Merlin or SE846. What I want is an engaging and fun IEM that keeps me motivated during my workouts.
An iem between 846 and merlin... I recommend rooth ls4

For 10 drivers the ones that are more commonly discussed are the UM Mentor and Noble Kaiser 10.

Like I said, the best is to go and audition them yourself.

Because the reviewer's ears and your ears are not the same. How you guys hear are different, and preferences are different.

For AAW three variants; which one is much closer to TF10 sound signature? TF10 and ue700 is my only balance armature reference iems that i'm using right now. I want to try the aaw models and kindly share some thoughts before I run to null audio.

Have tried both UM Mentor and Kaiser 10.

My choice, the UM Mentor.

Bro, I went down there, trying to find the shop. I see the Facebook page and saw that they open at 1pm. I left, went back at 1, then saw shop under renovation. I then saw they had another shop at peninsula shopping centre, headed there, to find that it was some art shop. Damn suay.

Haha maybe a bit of miscomms there. I think Kevin doesn't update FB or the website often. In fact, I asked him whether the store would be open on FB at ard 2 and he only replied at 10

Yea, I have to say communication with them isn't the best and requires a lot of patience. I sent an email to Kevin over a week ago and haven't heard back from him yet. So I emailed customer support and even with them it can take 2-3 days before you get a reply. If you're lucky they'll reply within a couple hours though.

Short Review on AAW & Null audio

Went to the shop today to do some auditioning on the 3 different types of AAW. Prefer the A2H series, good bass,good music. Whereas for A1D, good music but in term of bass, weaker. Those who like slightly lighter bass can go for A1D. A1D is slightly better shure 215e though. A2H in my opinion, is a level up S215e.

Most importantly, i really like their new shop concept and services. Makes me feel like a real customer, even had a small discussion with the person in charge on the design. There are sample faceplate and shell for customers to mix and match while sitting on their sofa LOL. Really free to audition those iems as well. i believe most of you all here will understand what i mean i.e. no "staring' stress from staff. Another thing to look out for is their "localized services"-AAW(Made in Singapore) though the earphone drivers are from US.
