IEMs reshelled into Custom Molds $80 in the USA (TripleFi 10, SE530, etc.) from FISHER HEARING - Page 177

post #2641 of 2822

I want in on the off-site group buy or on-site, either way, I am in.


Also AVOID the Sears Rego Park, NYC, NY, Miracle Ear Hearing Center, the doctor has no clue what he's doing and wanted to charge me $90 per ear for impressions! I told him I didn't want a mold, just impressions, he says okay $75 per ear then. Then he was trying to convince me to get Westone IEMs. Nothing wrong with Westones, but with his prices for impressions being so high, I just walked out of there.

Right, I did a search for details on a Group Buy in the Group Buy forum and there were no posts.  Does anybody have details? If posting it is not allowed, please PM.  Thanks.

I plan on going through with it either way, and I found a doctor near me who provides free impressions if you get a full ear check up. But I was wondering what type on impression(open/closed) I need for Fisher and is it the same for all?

The post was deleted, the deal was if we couple get 25 people to join in, it would be like 110 or 120 out the door I believe with cable and simple artwork.

I'm in as well.  How are we handling this?

post #2645 of 2822

The group buy thread wasn't approved by Jude. In other words, it can't be organized at head-fi, if it's going to be organized. I have no idea if Foie (the guy who was contacting Fisher and Kozee) is still planning to do it or not.

 

If he is, I haven't received my impression material yet (place I ordered from is being incredibly slow in shipping them) so I'd be in, assuming that it happens shortly. 

 

I think it's probably best if everyone assumes that it won't happen though. I don't think Fisher ever made a discount offer, though Kozee did. There is no reason why they would honor it though, since it was based on the premise that a ton of us were going to get reshells at the same time.

That alone is an advantage for us though as its business for them. We all just need to contact them and talk to them directly about the group buy and I'm sure things will fall into place. Its kinda like buying in bulk. When you do so you get more for less.

Not sure what the mold is, perhaps earplugs? All I know is they seemed to think I wanted something different when I did use that word. Use the word impression and tell them you just want to goo squeezed into your ear lol. Its really easy and probably doesnt even require a "professional". Just care and an ability to follow the directions on the sheet. Did you get the directions for the audiologist from Kaysen?



yeah, I was using earmold as the word. I'll try 'impression'

I've emailed them and they told me to 'add that info to the order form'

post #2648 of 2822

Yes, I said impressions, and each place asked me what I was going to do with the impressions and I told them.  I don't understand the discrepency in price, but I live in a small town, and there were only 5 options..

I did my own impressions. Its really not as hard as its being made out to be. Looking forward to getting my TF10s remolded. :)

I did my own impressions as well. I'm really hopeful that they've turned out okay, but it looks like I won't find out before Christmas. It sounds like they're slammed right now, and I doubt they've even touched the package I sent them with my TF10's.

I'm really in no rush (besides getting the impressions in before they shrink lol). Kinda just an experiment in the custom IEM market. This will help to determine my next step...

I wasn't in any rush either, but then I was told that them being done by Christmas was a possibility. My brain told me that there was no way in hell, but my heart told me that there was still hope lol. They only got my package on Thursday of last week, so I wasn't expecting them to be done anyway, but it would have been awesome. 

 

Right now, I really just want to know that my impressions are okay. I hate to bug Kaysen any more than I already have though.

post #2654 of 2822

Thanks again (I had already sent mine in, with it noted on the order form, but it's nice that it's an "official" deal now :P). I wouldn't have got artwork if it weren't for the deal, so it's really appreciated.

 

Now I just have to hope that translucent red shells with a white faceplate/red art is a good combo (and that my impressions were fine).
