Mine took 13 days and were perfect straight out of the box. I did not have my mouth open and the fit is perfect.

I'm glad to hear someone has a good fit!!! once again...~
I think i'll be getting my LiveWires 2 days later.
I hope the re-case will fix the fit problem with the Left Ear Monitor.

Wish me luck!

I ordered internationally, I think it was the California office. Hope they fit!

Yay they arrived today, got a good fit though the bass seems to kick in when i open my mouth really wide (yawn wide), but I don't think its enough for me to send them in, since they sound great anyhow.
Waited nearly two months for this, here are some pics

I sent my new impressions off today. The new impressions went deeper than my first set. Hope this works. Art in California has been really helpful.

OKay how long will the whole process take now if I send my molds/ impressions out tomorrow?

Any chance Ill have them before I leave for vacation on the 4th of July?

Well, somone had a 14 day turn around i believe, so being in the US too, i think if the service has got better, which it seems to have done, fairly likley...

Dont hold me to it though!

I sent my impressions 23. April. My Visa card was charged 30. April. And I still have not heard or seen anything so far. Not even from my customs (I live in Germany)!

I think it's unlikely considering the shipping times too. Maybe you can call them and ask about paying for expedited service if possible.

Hello Everybody....Ive Managed to Read this whole thread from page 1-259 in about....a day..lol...i'm thinking of getting livewires, but they are a bit expensive on the outlay, and im really warey on getting them, being a student im on a low budget
i have a few questions

1) How Are They Compared to Super.fi 5 EB/Pro(I have both)
2)Is if so is it worth selling those two to get the livewires?
3)do i need a amp to fully appreciate them?(source is to be decided, but i just sold my ipod)
4)if i do need a amp, any cheap recommendations?
5) does any one know if they have the clear cables in yet or custom shell colors?

lastly I'm just worried about the fit issues, as im only 16, and any fit issues might be caused by me growing, that and i live in Australia(same country as FMT), and frankly i have a heck of a lot less patience than he would, and i don't have the funds to send it back for re dipping more than once...ideally not at all though. just ill be selling my super.fi's to fund the purchase of the livewires and i don't want to be let down, or have the multitude of fit problems that FMT have, if i were in the US it might be a different story, but shipping from AUS>US is expensive with insurance

PS. FMT did you watch the footy?

Wow, these look pretty cool... ety's were my first and last canal-phone, because I fell in the small % of people with oddly shaped ear canals that make the ety's sound terrible. But I wonder if that's fixed now when they make the phone from an impression...?

1) I have the SF5EB as well. The Livewires are significantly more detailed, has equal bass extension but not as much bass boom. The Livewire's detail is better than the SF5 if I can remember correctly (did not A/B both). Between the SF5EB and Livewires sound-wise, I prefer the Livewires.

However, the Livewires really make crappy sources (low bitrate files, iPods) sound pretty crappy.

2) Depending on your budget, I'd keep one of the SF5's. The sound signatures are different, and it's nice to have something different from time to time. I'd sell one of the SF5's to buy a Sansa Clip.

I found that the Livewires sound fantastic on the Sansa Clip, a very cheap but highly regarded MP3 player. You won't need an amp for this. In the metal carrying case that came with your SF5, you could fit the Livewires and a 4GB Sansa Clip - an ultraportable solution.

3) An amp would be nice but not necessary. It totally depends on the source. For iPods, I find it hard to listen to without a decent amp as the headphone amp stage on the iPod is not perfect. On players with noisy headphone outs, the Livewires will pick all that noise up.
