Yes that is normal. if you can sort of hear outside noise when you have them in without music. That's perfectly normal. But excessive means that you aren't get the right fit.

Yes you will hear a bit of outside noise, they do not have quite the isolation as a universal with foam tips. I noticed this also.

I would tend to agree. I am actually quite surprised at the people who find customs isolate more. My Fidelity customs do not reach the level of quiet, deadness that shure black foams on E3s do when they are properly, deeply inserted.

I still can't hear a softly played drum kit (well) when my vocals and guitar are in my ears, I need to feed kick drum and overhead (quite a bit) to my mix to be able to follow the drummer, but I still feel like the customs isolate just a little less than shure black foams on my SCL3s.

Well I got my 5G nano yesterday and the two match up very well together.
There is a slight bump around 100hz. I'm going to try the itunes eq trick and see if it can be eliminated.

It is the perfect pocket sized setup...lol

Beautiful color!

well then i guess we have a whole bunch of ppl who have customs but never bothered to tweak the fit. because from what i've been told, its supposed to give 25-30db of noise isolation. which would mean you shouldn't even hear the bus or the train at all. let alone talking or drums.

I am talking about the difference between probably 25-28dB isolation with shure black foams and 22-25dB of isolation with customs, but it may be the same, I just said I thought it was less.

My customs fit just fine. Do you know what a 25dB difference means? Are you saying you wouldn't be able to hear anything at 55dB or lower normally? Because city street noise is likely 80dB. I can hear people whispering across the room without IEMs in, why wouldn't I be able to faintly hear people talking at a normal/loud level with my 25dB of isolation IEMs in?

We are talking about without music playing. You should be able to hear plenty of things with 25dB of isolation earplugs in (same thing as IEM), and if you can't I would say you have an abnormally high minimum hearing threshold.

This is exactly my experience. If you think about it a foam tip will have better sound deadening properties than a hard acrylic resin will provide.

Those look amazing. Now I'm really considering getting a pair. Couple questions though...

$399 is a relly good price, suprisingly good,is there a catch?
And how much does a pair of custom molds cost?

Thanks! I have a few more pics on my first post.

I really like them alot, I do not think you will find a better sounding IEM at there price range anywhere. There is no catch at all, go for it!

They originally were priced at $599 until the UE4pro was announced. JH then dropped the price to compete with UE.
Ear impressions run about 50$ and take like 5 minutes...

Solid black, well as solid as they make them. They still will have a bit of transparency though.
