Curious about these, but also still curious about the different colored (gold/brass) nozzle on the Autumn version. Also, additional pics would be great; maybe some real-world, non-studio shots.

Thanks, so the Autumn Forest does actually have a brass nozzle. Wondering how this affects the tuning vs the aluminum nozzle of the other 2 colorways (assuming I'm able to hear the small difference it would make).

Measurements of both verstions of nozzles are exactly the same from what we've tested. People's thoughts are different than that tho, so its really hard to evaluate. I'd say it should make too big of a difference to make you like or hate the IEM, but that's just our opinion :)

0 sold thus far... Probably the pricing could drop $100-200 more.

So many people here say that this is a nice product with attractive price, how come they did not buy it at all ?

Hey folks, wrote a review of the uni Model X on THL, we also have a review of the custom version for interest. For me personally, this was my intro to the company Lime Ears and it was quite a pleasant surprise, I think they offer very good performance and value even at their elevated cost. I also compared it to an industry favourite, the CFA Andromeda, where I found the Model X to provide just slightly less detail retrieval but overall, a more balanced and transparent sound with similar fullness when the bass switch is activated. It doesn't have the magical staging properties of that earphone nor its gorgeous design but does undercut the price with a strong focus on the sound quality aspect. Here're my measurements, I'm using the same setup as Crin so will have similar results, just note the scaling and ~8K peaks can be due to resonances in my measurement system as I didn't find these piercing at all. Hope this helps some potential buyers curious about the Model X as Lime Ears doesn't seem to have the market presence of some big names but definitely deserve a listen in my opinion, cheers!

Not gonna sell unless a much better price. They need to price aggressively to get more of a following in the wider non audiophile community and grow from there...silly price

I said the folks in your camp will bitch about the price of a product they have no experience with, haven't heard, and know nothing about. They see the sticker price and immediately start complaining. Which, is exactly what you've been doing not once, but twice for the same manufacturer. I also noted that there are plenty examples of this on other products currently on Drop of people doing EXACTLY this. It's hard to make this shit up when you can go to any page for these products and see it with your own eyes. The 6XX and 58X threads were an absolute shitshow over a matter of $10-20. Same with any "ChiFi" IEM on Drop as people always bitch and say order from whatever Chinese e-commerce site instead to save ~$5. The Topping products see this all the time too and immediately get cross compared to Amazon/Apos. My issue is, why should a manufacturer have to take a financial loss to suit anyone? They're a business and they deserve to be properly compensated for their work and product. Let alone, Lime Ears is based in Poland and a very small operation (a couple of guys at minimum; a very small company) so why should they take a hit when financially, it wouldn't make sense? You yourself purchased an overpriced CIEM from Noble when the K10 is quite old at this point and has sold, new, for as low as $500 on Drop, albeit in universal form. That already tells about its inherit value, yet, this drop is too expensive that has more technology and engineering packed inside? That's the string of logic I don't quite get. Noble literally sold an overpriced product purely on brand name recognition and people fall for that all day and night. And I still own some Noble products but why I no longer own their "TOTL" models. They're pretty, just egregiously overpriced for their FR and technicalities (IMO). Also their customer service and warranty leave a lot to be desired. Be lucky that you never have an issue. They were a nightmare to deal with. I was probably being a dick prior, so I apologise for that, but considering how bad the budget minded folks complain, it just gets tiring when they have nothing of value to add more than, "I subjectively think this product I know nothing about and haven't heard is too expensive." How is that helpful to actual potential buyers if you haven't even heard the item being offered?

I purchased the K10 customs 3 years ago or so (I will never ever buy a noble product again they have the worst customer service in the world - i had to pay to ship it back a 2nd time for repair after their first repair didnt work). I also understand you can find bargain and not pay for brand, I bought the custom A6 like 9 years ago when 1964 was an unknown brand and it was their flagship. I'm just making the point that if they want to be successful on this platform they need to prie more aggressively to build reputation. I think lots of companies have to take losses or lower margins to scale and get brand recognition - customer acquisition in a competitive market with it being hard to differentiate can be costly, and they aren't selling.

Tempted. Top tier rating by Crinacle, if you're into that sorta thing. This price might put it at very good value for cost.
