So i went out and get a custom fit for my Campfire Andromeda, when I was in Vietnam last year. 

 

Cost me a total of 30$. Went to a hearing aid specialist in Vietnam when I was there for work. Took a while to describe what i wanted to them but they got it in the end. (It wasn't because of the language because i speak the native tongue; it was more like that didn't usually have such a request). First they took a mould of my ear canal, then asked me how i would wear the Andromeda without the foam tip. Then they took a mould of the Andromeda itself. Came back the next day and picked them up. 

This was my first custom. My first impression was the noise isolation wasn't as good as foam. I asked them about that and they said it was common? The fit was something to get used to, it fit snugly in, took a while to get used to getting it out as well and the suction sensation caused by that. It fit so well that i didn't tell if I'm wearing it at all, almost weightless.

Sound wise it didn't affect the sound signature that much. It may sound more airy and more sound stage, but I reckon it's due to the weightless sensation. Not a big bass fan (though recently got a Polaris v2), so i didn't notice the bass reduction that much. Bought these JH comply wraps to get the foam isolation again but took them off after a few months.

I used to have foam tips which can be a process to put on, but now just pop it in and it just fits! Love it! 

There are quite a few bubbles in the acrylic but it doesn't bother me that much, considering how much I paid for it. I'm also less worried about scratching the iem as well esp when they bang against each other in the case, now that most of it is covered up,

 

Pics of the custom mould there too, and also how they sit when i wear them.

That’s awesome. Would they do it if I sent some impressions?

      Item: Campfire Andromeda
      Location: Melbourne
      Price: $950 inc. postage
      Item Condition: Excellent - like new
      Reason for selling: NLR
      Payment Method: Paypal, PayID 
      Extra Info: 
      Purchased to use as a pair of travel IEM's. Unfortunately for me, I have small ears and I never found these to be that comfortable (For regular sized folks I think you'll be okay ).  
      - I switched to Sony noise cancelling headphones instead. 
       
      Used only a handful of times, original purchase date October 2018. This was a warranty replacement set for an original that had a faulty driver. 
      Due to minimal use, this set will be basically new. No marks or scratches - just minus 1 set of small foam eartips. 
       
      I will also include the remaining sets of Symbio MandarinEs (3 x small / 2 x med) that I purchased around the same time*.
      *There are actually 2 small baggies - not the single pictured below

      Being an audio visual and technology fan, one tends to have many devices and of course lots of cables to go along with it.
      So in my listing/watching entertainment unit i have a mess of cables behind. I tried once before to reorganize and manage them better but it's still a disaster back there and over time i have added and removed devices making it even more of a mess, not to mention the potential for interference between cables etc. due to coils. 
       
      Therefore i believe that the best course of action is to pull every cable out and start over. 
       
      So my question is would it be best making all cables custom myself to the exact lengths? As to remove all excess. If so is there like a universal type of connection method? Or am I going to have to buy a termination tool for each type of connection? ie. Hdmi, usb, rca, power, ethernet etc. 
       
      Or is there some better way to organize cables that I'm overlooking? 
       
      What do you do to organize your cables? Or is it out of sight out of mind type thing? 
       
      Thought i would ask you guys before i started researching about cables and connectors and the tools to terminate said cable's/connectors. 
      Thanks in advance. i will now commence the Googles while i await your replies 😁
