"My CT-500 Elite have become so important in my life! I'm a guitarist, producer and musical director, regularly touring and working full time on the music business. My position in the band requires full detail and separation between all instruments, backing tracks and voices, and I'd never been able to fully achieve this level of clarity and balance with any other IEMs that i tried before.
They feel built like a tank TBH, no worries there. Frequency reproduction among the spectrum is really balanced, and the quite subtle mids-bump really helps my guitar and voice cut trough it all without being too loud. Low and mid-low freqs are on point, absolutely distinguishable, and the high range is clear, but not overwhelming. Soundstage is great, not crazy wide but as wide as it can be for an IEM I believe.
Another thing I can't stress enough is how comfortable and life-changing custom molds are. I came from my 3 driver "S535" IEMs, and as good as those fit on my ears, having to push them and, with a bit of sweat, fight for them to stay on my ears, it really does not compare to a well donde custom mold of your ear. After a time of a break-in period and your ear muscles and skin getting used to them, you find it really, really comfortable, with noise isolation as good as it gets.
I really dig the style of cable CTM uses, and have never had a problem with it. The case is really pretty, though I also use a Pelican 1010 case. I won't ever tolerate anything less than this guys. Thanks!"
