Thanks for participating in the CustomArt Harmony 8 or 8 Pro IEM drop. Now, we begin the process of getting your custom in-ears to you!
Here's the step of step list of what you need to do to get your custom IEM made:
1. Contact Piotr at CustomArt (info@thecustomart.com) about your order. Piotr already has a list of the member participating in this drop along with the order detail, so it will be a very quick and straight forward process.
2. Once Piotr confirms the order, see an audiologist to have your ear impressions created or create impressions via a DIY kit yourself. Getting help from a professional audiologist is the most preferred method, as the definition of the impressions from DIY kits are often insufficient for what CustomArt requires.
If you decide to use an audiologist for the ear impressions, please be sure to have make each impression past the second bend, full concha (for detachable cables it is advised that there's a lot of overlaying material on impressions around cymba and crus helix part), mouth open with bite-block. Impressions have to be made from soft silicone material. Dreve, Egger or Westone brands are recommended.
3. You MUST also take a picture of the ear impressions and send to info@thecustomart.com.
4. Once the impressions are confirmed by CustomArt, you can ship the impressions to:
CustomArt
Piotr Granicki
Pulawska 28.36
02-512 Warszawa
Poland
5. For customers outside of Poland, please declare the value of the impressions as $10 and not the value of the IEMs you will receive. This is because the impressions are actually of negligible value from a customs perspective and if over valued CustomArt will be charged duties.
6. It will then takes a few weeks for CustomArt to create your own pair of the IEM based on the impression.
7. Once the CustomArt IEMs are completed, CustomArt will ship the finished IEM to you directly via FedEx from Poland.
If there's any questions or feedback at any point throughout this process, please feel free to reach out to CustomArt at info@thecustomart.com or Massdrop by clicking the contact support button in your transaction page.

This may not be the only drop of Harmony 8 this year. The drop page was "reused" from the last year's where that applied.
[EDIT]Apparently this was last drop this year and it was last Harmony drop ever. We won't be relisting Pro330/Harmony8/8Pro/8.2 with Massdrop.

I was rushing to purchase and was able to sneak in just in time :) for the color/material choices, i just chose ones that seemed ok just so i could get in for the drop (which i was luckily able to) but are we able to review what each color is like and change our choices at a later time?

Harmony 8 - smoother darker signature. Slightly bigger soundstage. Highs are very non-offensive and in the second layer. Harmony 8 Pro - more aggressive signature (more mainstream sound). More detailed and precise imaging. Highs are in the same line as the rest of the sound.
Ei.xx is more like Harmony 8 signature wise, but has smaller soundstage. Ei.xx has more sub bass and gives you more "brain shake" :) Ei.xx is not as dark. Ei.xx is based on amplified Olive-Welti curve so it's still balanced despite having V-shaped response.

Hi all,
We had a mistake on the pricing for Harmony 8/8 Pro. Our apologies! The good news is the price is actually now lower than what was previously listed.

What other type of In-Ear Monitors could you compare these too? I'm a collage student from Canada who would probably use these as my only IEM device.
I mainly listen to electronic music. Here is an example of my favourite song right now [Genre: Future Funk](

). This is in no order of what Genres I like: [Deep House](

), [DanceHall](

), [Trap](

), [Electro Swing](

), [PsyTrance](

), Heavy Metal, Rap, Reggae, Older Rock (Like Jimi Hendrix), and sometimes Soundtrack music. Their might be more that I'm missing but that should give you a good Idea what I like.
Portable music source: Spotify/Soundcloud -> Android -> Fiio E18 Dac/Amp Home music source: FLAC files/Spotify/SoundCloud -> Schiit Modi/Magni
I'm currently testing out the Sennheiser IE80 ($250 USD). I find the treble is muddy and the bass is nice and boomy. I have also tried the Noble 3 ($350 USD) and I prefer them over the IE80's because the sound is cleaner but still fun. Previous IEM: B&W C5 (fun and boomy), B&O C5 (Boring and Quiet), Ultimate Ears 900 (Boring and Analytical). I *think* I prefer the V shaped sound signature but I'm unsure. Would you recommend the regular CustomArt 8 or the 8 Pro?
To be honest I really can't afford to spend this much money but I willing to drop the money so this is a big decision.
How would shipping work to Canada?
Thanks!

well, i have a pair of klipsch x10's and theyre way too dark. My akg k7xx is pretty awesome, really like the level of detail but i preferred some more bass impact cause it feels just a little too analytical. Ive briefly tried the HD650 and that sort of went the opposite way. Apart from having less space, it felt a little lacking in the treble/presence but i think it had a better midrange, which made me start adding a couple dB at 3-4kHz on my k7xx Essentially im not looking for a pair of subwoofers on my head, but in between being able to enjoy my music and also be able to hear fine details (i guess that's everyones dream, huh? :) )

Hi, do you intend to do a drop of the Pro330 this year? I ask as I'm after a pair of IEM's for stage use (a musical), and am wondering if the lower profile of the 330s might not be better. Any thoughts? Many thanks.

think I might have gotten it wrong—is the 330 actually lower profile than the 8? I know you originally designed the 330 for stage/studio, but do you think the 8 or 8 pro would be as good/better for it? My primary uses will be on stage (the musical) and in the studio. Any advice?

We have artists using both Pro330 and Harmony8 on stage. Pro330 is definitely better for vocals and general monitoring. Pro330 can be made lower profile but with detachable system they are always going to stick out a little bit.
