Great news!

By the way, I am following your footsteps in that now that I have true custom IEM's, I am selling off my UE universals (both the Super.Fi 5 Pro and Triple.Fi's)

Kosmic, maybe you could get a Shure Push-To-Hear module?

Does it work with any earphone? IIRC it does.

I am thinking about getting the push to hear module as to many people want to talk to me at the gig/show with my LiveWires in place. I am always having to take one out to talk with them and after a while it gets to be a pain.

I think the unit works with most any IEM.

Below I copied this from headphone.com

A brilliant Shure advancement is the Push-to-Hear (PTH) feature which allows the listener to attenuate the music at the flick of a switch and activate a built-in microphone located on the earphone's cabling. Now you can hear conversation without having to deal with the fastidious & precise removal/re-insertion of the earphones once you've seated them into the ear canal; it's not only a huge time-saver but also minimizes wear & tear on the earphones. You can also adjust the SE530PTHs external microphone's volume via a recessed dial so you don't get blown out by loud ambient sounds. The 'PTH' product is also available separately for use with most earphone brands for $69.

Let me know if anyone knows where to buy this for less money.

Shure Push-To-Hear? No no, I have something much better!

Check out the photos and instructions on page 1. I only need a little push on the right spot, and I can listen perfectly without removing my Livewires.

Anyway airlines require you switch everything off when you come in to land...hence the prodding air stewardess.

Save your money, it degrades sound, and isn't needed. Check out photos and instructions on page 1.

Just got my Livewires and.....

I got my Livewires and they don't have any bass response. After a close look I noticed that the tube that comes from the low freq. driver is crimped on both ear pieces. They both look like a straw that is bent in half. Mine are clear so it's really easy to tell. I sent them back and start the waiting process all over again. It seems like somebody should have noticed that the tubes are crimped. Even a spot check would reveal that mine would be faulty. It's not the end of the world just an expensive inconvenience. Now I have to go buy a set of UM-2's to use while I wait on mine to get fixed.

Using lesser quality buds/iem's only makes it better when they arrive again! You miss the SQ, then when you get them you love them even more!

Although you could buy UM-2's and resell them on here when the Lw's arrive.

Kosmic, I already use that trick, but after doing it so much I have a sore spot on the back underside of my ear. Seems like everyone want to ask you something when you have them in your ears.

The trick works fine at home with my wife , but at the show there is more noise.

Ahh yes I wasn't thinking. You would get sore if you had to do it a lot. The Shure thingies seem like the way to go then.

They're lying to you?

I doubt that. How are you communicating, and with whom?

They did some of that with me. Not sure if they needed some more time, but I had issues that I wanted fixed right and they most likely had deal with the maker of the armatures to resolve the problem. Seems that they need to find a lab on the west coast to shorten the turnaround time.

Just ask them if they have them in there office ready to ship.
