There is no vent in the shell, a BA don’t need one at all. The nozzle has nice depth to it and its very easy to change tips.
There are many customization options available, some are with extra cost, you can chose different cables and one with Mic too. There is option to have the Fibae Black with MMCX connectors too, in case you don’t like the more secure feeling of the 2pin design.
