Hearyourself.com custom IEM discussion thread - Page 3

Generaly most pros choose acrylic because they are considered more durable and more hypoallergenic. I have a skin sensitivity to sylicone so I had to choose acrylic. Also the Hearyourself.com site only offers the sylicone in single driver. They also offer custom molded housings for your existing earphones. simply order them for about $110 USD and send your earphones to the lab with your finished impressions and they will make them to fit your earphones. Livewires only offers dual driver and you are very limited in your color choices.

From what i have heard although livewires is a dual drive but the sound quality is really good.
I'm also waiting for freq but i need a iem now.
nobody knows the sound quality of livewires vs alien ears?

hmmm....
from their hearyourself's site:
Our lab has been in the custom
ear molds,hearing protection,
monitor earphones and communications
business for 28 years!

28 years into the business and not much ppl had heard of them?
seem fishy to me.
post #37 of 1733
yeah, that website doesn't seem like a 'we've been in business 28 years' type of website
post #38 of 1733
i'm leaning more toward livewires and freq (if freq really came back)
the connector for the livewires kinda turn me off.

custom molded in-ear monitors for the general public are fairly new to almost all of us. Many of the companies selling them now have been in the hearing-aide, professional monitor ,and law enforcement surveilance business prior to seeing that the general public's new interest has sparked a whole new market. The only site that can boast a whole slough of celebrity endoresments is Ultimate Ears and up unil now the cost has been so high that only people willing to toss out big bucks have able to afford them. All we can do is keep watching and talking up our experiences for the benefit of others. Maybe some day I'll get some Livewires or UE's so I can truly experience any difference but for now we're on our own. I pretty much based my choice on color selection and price. It's kind of like buying a new car and deciding whether to add the totaly expensive heated leather seats. I could have paid for UE's but since this is my first set of custom molded I was little leery about spending 150% more for them
And like I said earlier I'm very Very happy with them. I may not be a professional singer or audiophile but I can tell when A sounds better than B

the more I look at this site and after speaking to people at livewires I think I am going to go with these because the wires look nicer, I can choose any color I want and they give you a free impression kit, I'd basically be paying the same either way.

Gatto,

Be creative ! Get glitters in translucent colors. also bright royal blues with gold glitters would go well with your skin and hair color. I think the lab has more fun making the cool colors than we have wearing them. get black cables unless you want them to blend against your skin but who wants that ? Show off a little !!
post #42 of 1733
haha I bet! that sounds like a great color combo. right now I'm thinking swirly translucent pink and white or blue and pink swirled together, or maybe two different color combos, one for each ear. I have a feeling I will take forever trying to decide!

edit: oo maybe white and pink for one ear and black and pink for the other

they came in a nylon case about the size of an Ipod but a little thicker. They are protected by a dense foam lining. Not the jewelry box seen on the site. I have emailed Andre the owner a couple of times and he is really anxious to get the new sight up in a few weeks
post #44 of 1733
Great Idea ! different colors for each ear.

They print the serial number and any name you want on them (red letters=right---blue letters=left). and the detachable cord has a red and blue dot so you can't them backwards but diiferent colrs sounds great !
post #45 of 1733
wow these seem way better then livewires, I've already e-mailed livewires twice with no response, they have barely any color choices and the only way I got in contact was by calling.

I love the color of yours! ^
