Custom tips on Phonak PFE?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm interested in possibly doing this. Does anyone know if it's possible and where I'd get it done?

I was going to start this thread myself actually! I know some places but I don't like the prices or the idea of sending my PFEs. $90-$150 just seems like a lot for tips on top of the cost of impressions. I saw a post on another forum where a guy said he went to his local Phonak dealer and got impressions done and got a bunch of custom tips for $40 but that just sounds too good to be true.

I like the PFE's but it's not really worth spending around the same price as the PFE's for the custom tips, imo. If you can get it done for $40 though, go for it.

Otherwise, I would advise against it unless you get something more expensive like the Westone 3's, UM3X's, Sennheiser IE8's or another top tier IEM.

Yeah I was hoping for a cheap mod. Maybe I'll call a local audiologist and ask around.

I have a page bookmarked on how to do some cheap DIY ones with epoxy that I have been thinking about.

I tried my SE530 custom tips with the PFE, which fits after some struggling and twisting in. I found that it muddled up the sound too much for my liking, though, so I stick with the default silicon tips with it (which are the tips they designed with it in the first place).

Audiologists said $100-130 dollars which is WAY too much for me.

Yamas, did you go further with this? Or has anyone else had some luck with custom tips on these?
