Introduction

Custom Art was founded in 2012 in Poland by a fervent audiophile, Piotr Granicki. They specialise in making handcrafted iems, be it in universal or custom form. For custom iems, Custom Art is one of the few that offers the option of crafting them either in silicone or regular acrylic. Their product line ranges from the entry level Music One to their flagship Harmony 8.2. Recently, they released the FIBAE 1 and FIBAE 2. FIBAE is also known as Flat Impedance Balanced Armature Earphone. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Piotr from Custom Art for the review unit of FIBAE 2. FIBAE 2 is a dual driver iem that features 1 driver for low frequency and 1 driver for high frequency. At the moment, you can purchase the FIBAE 2 at https://thecustomart.com/fibae-2/ .

Unboxing & Accessories

The FIBAE 2 comes in a smooth matte black package like a gift box. After removing the lid, you can see the contents in the package. There is a transparent Pelican 1010 case. Inside the case, there is the iem, instruction manual, cleaning tool, pack of eartips and silica gel. The accessories are quite sufficient. It is a nice touch by Custom Art to provide the Pelican case for storage of iem as it has a strong build.
