It's actually quite heartwarming that you two are being given warnings *before* you lay down your cash. AAW has really moved ahead leaps and bounds in terms of customer service.

LOL gambler at heart. Yes please do update me about the outcome Actually I am quite inclined to do it because it can solve many problems I don't like about the iem (non-detachable cable, bulky weird thing sticking out of ear, fit issues with stock tips)
Yes i will update u when I get it. I really like the sound signature of the h300 despite its overly bright treble but I really love the sound of the bass. The fit really sucks though. I have very small ears and it's really ugly seeing them sticking out and it drops out very easily so just decided to reshell it. Yup and they also did mentioned that I have to accept the terms of them retuning if they spoil. They made it very clear to me so that's very kind of them.

Yea apparently there are some so called industry standards for the "common" additional drivers. Like there's this cheatsheet where they know how to adjust the crossover liao... But for my case there wasn't such a thing and they had to redo the calculations. As i mentioned before I'm grateful that they did that rather than keep the old crossover and chuck in the dynamic driver!

Tick tock tick tock when will i get my collection sms! Hahahaha

Yea I will post it when it's here. She didn't mentioned a specific date but ard the 1st to 2nd week of jan 2015. Hopefully it's earlierHaha! But honestly guy, ear impressions are best done with those at digisound. The one at lucky plaza is good. He's a German guy and he explains to me how it's being done with a model and he has the professional tools to do it. He told me he went past null audio before and saw the lady using a cotton bud to push it in. He went omg and he wanted to go in to talk to her ant it cos if not done properly. She can probably pull out the impressions together with your ear drums then u don't need a CIEM anymore. U probably need a hearing aid now. Haha

Seriously, now I have a visual image cos he showed me the model of the ear and the ear drums. He has been doing this for 20 years so he probably knows what he's saying. But yet I'm sure the lady has done many impressions and I don't think anyone got deaf because of that so it's still safe? But if u see got people post on their Facebook, that the lady hit something in his ear (should be ear drums) and his ear felt blocked for don't know how long. Lol. I don't want to do ear impressions anymore. Lol

Collected my M20 2 days ago on Thursday.

I was one of the few who took advantage of their free expedite service that's part of their November offer. They told me 3 weeks. I ordered on the 6th and received it on the 27th. So it was exactly 3 weeks.

The build very good. Finishing very smooth. Upgraded the stock quantum cable to the arete cable.

The fit is perfect. Lucky me. No need to refit. Even when smile, open mouth, yawn, jump around also won't break seal.

Have to say. Their service have significantly improved. Asked stupid questions they also replied quickly and politely.

Not enough post count to post pic or link /:
