This method is used by UE, ACS, and more (maybe with a different manufacturer of the equipment).
UE has been talking with Lantos since they came out with the technology, and it is supposedly canal only. But that was a while ago, so who knows if they have improved it. The second link mentions a 120 degree fan scan of the outer ear.

It seems my dabbling in CIEMs may be a brief one
Just tried on my Etymotic MC5 again and they seem to have the customs beat in seal and SQ (even when the latter is properly sealed)
In particular, the bass of the MC5 (no bass monsters themselves) beat the customs into a cocked hat
I suppose I could return them for a remold, but if it costs any money (and I think a revisit to the audiologist for new impressions should be called for) I'd rather let them sit there looking pretty?
Wow, your CIEM is either bass light or the seal is very bad (not that the MC5 is bad, but it does use a dynamic driver). Can you push the CIEM further in your ear and move it around to see if you can get the true sound to come out. A bad seal can be overcome with by pushing them in. Also, see if this helps at all.

- SE5 and EM6 seems to share some characteristics in terms of sound signature and SE5 is better than EM6 ( from what Mimouille said, could you confirm Joe ? )
- EM32 is really better than EM6 : less colored, better sense of deepness, more detailed, more precise, more transparent... To my mind that's their flagship
- EM32 has the organic bass response you could feel on a monitoring speaker. That get low, very low, and deep. Keeping the rest of the frequencies with no difficulties, for me it's a new level of perception of what I could named a neutral sound, much more than the EM6 that are realistic but absolutely not flat
My S-EM6 is on the way back to EarSonics as they requested my unit back due to an issue with a driver. The issue was confirmed with one S-EM6, and 9 more used the same batch of drivers, so they wanted them all back to make sure there were no issues. They will replace it with the Crystal version. The SE5 is quite different than the S-EM6, which was not what I was expecting per my comparison with the SM64 here.
I too am very interested in the EM32.
