Looking forward to your impressions (be sure to feed them some well recorded tracks).

How in the world you can't fit your 1964 IEM in it's case? It is humongous for an IEM case IMHO. lol

Well, it's not that big...

 

Although....last week I was looking for the cleaning tool in it and I got lost for 3 days...luckily the police found me :D

It's not that the IEM's don't fit, of course those fit fine. It's that I have to wind my custom cable too tightly for the space allotted in the case.

Ah I think I understand what you meant now after reviewing the case last night. There's another straight layer of foam underneath the "compartment" foam layer. I'll have to see how everything fits. I also don't have a need to carry the accessories with me. Hopefully this will work and save me the $30 for the 1170. Although, it would be nice to carry my X5 with me. I'll report back once I get home from work.

edit: words


I looked up that case and saw that most people use that case for their gun - can you fit in a snub-nosed .38 in there with your CIEM? :etysmile:

I could tongue.gif the cool thing about them is that you can pick apart the foam to custom fit if you will, whatever you want. This is why they are so popular with gun owners. Apparently they meet TSA guidelines to travel with a handgun as well.

So I decided to dig deep and go for the V6S. Just came back from the audiologist, who works with 1964 Ears regularly. He and his assistant were great, enthusiastically answering all my anxious newbie questions, super professional. He did the right ear twice because he wasn't 100 happy with the way it came out the first time. And the price was right too: the impressions were free! I ordered through him, and it was the same as the web price. I highly recommend him to anybody in the NYC vicinity: Chris Herget at NYC Hearing and Balance. In fact, I think I heard about him early on in this thread. So, thanks to whomever it was that first recommended him!

I was going to post a picture of my impressions, but I don't seem to be able to as a new member. So, consider yourselves spared a look at my oddly shaped ear canals.

Thanks again for the helpful council, everybody!

WoW! Nice job getting those impressions for free. My audiologist had only worked with Westone and Aclair and had never heard of 1964 Ears before. Luckily I had my instruction sheet :P Now comes the most painful month of waiting of your life! Enjoy religiously checking the order process screen multiple times a day. Congrats on the purchase!
