Phonak Audeo? - Page 4

post #46 of 2281
dfkt: Well, based on your recommendation and that of another person, I took the plunge on a pair of the black (non-mic) version. I paid $139 for them. I will of course add my $.02 when I get them.

Thanks!

Very good decision! I definitely prefer them over my Westone 3s and with a lot of high quality recordings (eg Chesky, Stockfish) over my Triple.Fis, too. Just make sure to install the black filters instead of the preinstalled grey ones. And get yourself some Shure black foam olives as they isolate much better than the soft silicone sleeves that come with the Audéos.

Audéo ergo sum (I'm listening to the Phonaks - therefore I am)

Wow! Impressive.

Try "SAVE20" at the check out. I was able to get 20% off.

I'm always getting ignored in threads like these, lol.

Why don't you call them and ask? There is a good chance they will make it up for you.

Sorry, but as I don't own the IE8s I can't say anything about them compared to the Audéos.

In order to mount the slightly too narrow Shure foam olives you have to take some extra measures (please see the posts by dfkt and myself above). But as soon as they are put in place they feel like being made (exclusively) for the Audéos.

Does anyone know how long the SAVE10 coupon works for?

Just to clarify, you used the pencil to widen the opening of the olive and did NOT use the pencil in the tube of Audeos?

And what size olives? S/M/L?

No, he stuck the pencil in the tube of the Audeos to widen it so he could shove a small size olive in the IEM. It works even better when you hold the IEM over a flame.
Be carefull, don't burn your fingers when you do this!!!!
PICs would be nice.

Mine is schedule to arrive tomorrow. I will let it with iRiver H120 and Sony A816 as soon as I open it. Hopefully it will be the kind of sounds I was looking for.
