Custom IEM decisions 2019

I did a search and there is not much info on custom molded In ear Monitor comparisons since almost 10 years ago.

I’m looking between a few different brands right now. I use to have some Alien Ears Triple drivers back when I was on tour but can’t seem to find them now and would like another pair of in ears.
As a Mixing engineer I’d love to use them occasionally for reference, but will mostly just be used to enjoy music as I’m pretty set with my Barefoot MM27s in the control room and don’t plan to ever actually MIX on in ears.

I’ve been looking a little at the Sensaphonics just because my wife and I are about to have our first baby and I like watching movies or listening to music a little bit before bed and the ambient option on them would be nice in case I need to hear the baby at night. But I’ve heard some mixed reviews about build quality with them.

Has anyone tried any of the follow or some similar and would like to give some input:

Sensaphonics 3D AARO
Ultimate Ears Reference (or another model)
