Serene Hearing Aid [Custom IEM] Dryer and Freshener Review - Page 2

post #16 of 31

I do not think that the water will be the problem, more the stuff that is disolved in the water and will be left when the water is evaporated, just a thought..

That is a problem also, but water can wick into small tubes and essentially never evaporate due to surface tension, blocking the tube.

 

I have experienced improvements in sound after using the dryer with some of my more well used CIEMs, and especially those with smaller diameter sound tubes.

great posts as usual by average_joe. I will be ordering a DB-100 asap.

@ Claus: Just a FYI...Grzegorz recommended a dryer for the 5-way.

Always good to learn new things, Maybe a combination of the dryer and a ultrssonicbath would be perfect ?? just shooting from the hip here confused_face_2.gif

Hey joe, 

 

Do you have any additional comments on your experience with the dryer?  I think I'm going to see if they sell any at the drug stores tomorrow..

Hi KimChee, I use the dryer regularly with various CIEMs, usually before I put them away after reviewing them.  I need to buy desiccant packs for my storage as my use is just different than most other people.  I can say that if I think something doesn't sound right I stick it in the dryer and things go back to normal.  

 

And as far as the cable I was going to report back on, it did continue to green, so I am not sure if the water molecules bond with the copper and will oxidize no matter what.

Thanks Joe I didn't get the hearing aid dryer, but I got a dri-eze dehumidifier.  I must have had driver degradation because after storing them it's like a veil was lifted.  My highs sparkle again and clarity is back.  Thanks for making us aware of this.

This is known in the pro and hearing aid markets, but I hadn't heard it mentioned on head-fi before (although it may have been).  Glad you got positive results, can you link to what you bought?
