Best quality per dollar CIEM seems a little arrogant. If it truly has the best value, there should be a dozen reviews, and yet I can hardly find three.
Acrylic shell is regular but disappointing. Silicone would isolate a lot more.
The driver tuning options seem very cool. That being said I don't see the point of tuning drivers vs. Neutral drivers with an EQ.
To be honest I'm just really against the product the moment I saw the crazy claim "best quality per dollar CIEM".

That claim could arguably be "substantiated" by considering the diminishing returns of costs incurred for marginal sound quality improvements in high end audio.
I think I'd be disappointed, as my main ears are the JH16. That said, they're larger, more of a hassle to tune (3a amp) for a track, and bulky as anything. These would be good for more casual listening, or stage monitoring. There's plenty of other options out there, but at a substantial discount from list, this is hard to pass up.

The discount looks nice, but if I had to buy one at 500 I'd still rather purchase westone, alclair, UM, or any of the other more popular brands. If "almost every" CIEM brand uses the same generic drivers, then why on earth would I trust a company I barely heard about to "innovate"? Different isn't always better.

That's what happens when you try to oversell something lol They should try a more humble approach rather than the "we're better than everyone" approach.

I thought that was a stupid claim, too. First of all, where is the evidence to support that? Second, that's done in nearly /every/ industry. Many companies use the same parts but the design is radically different. It doesn't matter if they use the same drivers, they're tuned differently.
