1964 Ears (The Appreciation Thread) - Page 315

The worst thing that can happen is that the pins get broken off in the sockets, making the IEMs unusable and requiring a trip back to the factory, where they will have to be rebuilt.  But other than that, not much...

Even if they get pissy and don't want to give you the $25 discount - it could still be worth it.

For people in NYC, there's a new dealer for 1964 Ears ciems/iems! The excellent audiologist Chris Herget http://www.nychearingandbalance.com/#!about/cipy

 

One thing I really, really like about Chris as an audiologist is that if you're concerned about fit, he'll actually look in your ears as you open and close your mouth to see how the canals change. That just makes a ton of sense and it's a cool thing for an audiologist to do.

 

In any case, he has (or can get) all the 1964Ears demos (you'll want to call in advance anyway).

Can anyone here give me some advice on the custom artwork of the 1964 ears? Would it be okay if my design was on a white based background? Would that make my faceplate white, or would it be okay? Any other experience with the artwork would be helpful too! Wouldn't want to make a printing mistake. Thanks!

Shouldn't make any difference what background the artwork you give them is on; give them the pic/drawing/whatever, tell them exactly how you want it. They'll probably tell you it's best to do a mockup so you can get an idea of what it will look like first so you can be sure it's what you want - will cost you a tenner; I had two done before I settled, which was well worth it.

1964 ears do have a ciem designer on the website that lets you upload your art work so you could try it before buying.

Yup just go to the ciem designer on the website. I couldn't design exactly what i wanted online but I still did it and after a quick email it was made possible. I got motivated by the pictures of their work on Instagram. They can truly do amazing work. I said can y'all put a multi color design over brushed aluminum? No problem.

Wish they have a more practical carrying case for the IEMs than the pelican case.

But pelican cases do offer great protection...and who doesnt want to keep their precious iems safe:)

Just got one of these and they are amazing... Not cheap, but I think I could run it over with a truck and not crush it.

 

 

Hippocan - kinda like the JH can...

Perhaps a balance between protection and portability. For my everyday carrying purpose I don't need a pelican case, I need something tough and light, like the case I'm using from my old Westones.

The case JHaudio has is quite nice for portability.

I like the Ultimate Ears small metal custom case ($20) and the Shure oval EAHCASE ($10-15). I have several of each.
