When is john supposed to be back? I need to talk to him too.

Here is a picture, I was wondering if this is normal, it looks weird. (look at the circle) is it normal>

It just looks like a small blemish on the inside of the plastic body. Nothing to be alarmed I would say, but if it starts cracking the surface I would get worried.

I have a similar blemish on mine, nothing to worry about.

looks like maybe they sanded it there a little. I wouldn't worry about it
post #2075 of 3897
^ ok thanks guys for the reassurance.
post #2076 of 3897
nothing to worry about..i got that on close inspection only
post #2077 of 3897
Having more fit issues again, I showed John an image of them in my ears, and he has confirmed that they are too long down the bottom, as I am losing the seal there which is leaking in sound.

Sigh

Might have to try sanding it down or something, anyone here got any tips for sanding it down?

Obviously I'd ask for the advice of the Livewires team, particularly how it relates to warranty.

If it was to be self-sanded I'd select very fine sandpaper (local hardware stores, FeedMeTrance - Home, Bunnings & the like: ask them to show you the finest grades - I'd also prefer to use up a number of fine grade sheets doing the process slowly rather than chunking too much off going too fast with even a slightly coarser sheet).

Depending on how much had to come off I'd be working very slowly and methodically by hand, having first sealed off the two holes with something that wouldn't allow dust/sandings to go inside them. I'd only go to a fully speed adjustable electronic sander, perhaps a circular sander head on a very low speed drill, if there really was a lot to be removed. But that'd have to be extreme - I'd prefer to spend an excess of time by hand to ensure I never got to a point where I'd removed too much.

But get Livewires advice/approval first, mate. You'll probably find the amount is far smaller than you imagine and it might just be a very fine area that is contacting your ear to prevent a fully sealed insertion (i.e. it might not need sanding at all points from the bottom ).

I would go to the audiologist that took your impressions (or any other one for that matter). My audiologist said that if I need any adjustments with my livewires when they come in, that she'd be more than happy to try and help me. I'm sure they get a lot of practice on hearing aids, so I'm sure it'd be a sinch for them :-D

I might take it to the audiologist as she told me before she usually does grindings on hearing aids, so yeah, btw LiveWires are all up to spec with it, and John Diles is helping me with it all.

Hey, I'm just wondering how much someone paid in total?

I live in Canada, so if any other Canadian bought a pair of LiveWires, could you please post your invoice total?

And how much does it cost for an audiologist to make a mold?

Thanks!

Sweet, I live in Burnaby.

Do you mind replying or PMing me with the details of your audiologist?

Thanks!
post #2085 of 3897
The Impression is $15 per ear , which makes $30 for 2 of them.
