good luck on it man! I will be soon following your footsteps on getting the 4A

post #122 of 7980

Pretty much exactly the same timeline, but no response yet :(.

 

Hoping soon!

So here's the timeline:

Order filed Dec 31

Ear moulds shipped Jan 4

FedEx reports ear moulds package received Jan 9

Heir confirms receipt of package Jan 14

[Lunar New Year: Jan 23]

Heir ships cIEMs Feb 7

 

Pretty good turnaround, considering the holiday. Shipping to China and back will have taken almost as big a chunk of time as fabrication, assuming Heir was closed for the week around CNY.

 

More opinions when the package arrives.

My impressions were received nearly two weeks earlier around end of december(they were closed though!). No news either. Fired off two emails so hopefully will find out more soon

post #124 of 7980

I received an e-mail when my impressions arrived. I also sprang for tracking so I knew where they were. If you haven't received an e-mail they may not be there yet.

post #125 of 7980

Yes I did get an email confirming impressions were received around 29th December but nothing since.  Just wondering if they receive too many emails and mine is always going to the bottom of the pile! Just a little frustrating hearing others getting theirs(happy for them of course) having made orders a lot later than me. It's a bit like waiting for a table in a restaurant and someone coming in later gets a table first. :p

Did you ask for anything special? I went with just transparent black acrylic and a logo on the left side. If you went for woodies it might take more time to get the materials, shape them, etc.

I got 8.a's so had the carbon plates included and some glitter just to be different! So nothing that other 8.a's haven't got. Never mind i have some acs t1's to keep me going for now tongue_smile.gif

Don't forget to post comparisons!

My 4A arrived this afternoon. 


Fit and finish is superb. The acrylic is uniformly tinted and smoothly polished.  I can chew without breaking the seal. Testament to good impressions as well as good shaping.

Complete isolation - I cannot hear my "clacky" mechanical keyboard with them fitted and music playing at 35% volume.


The cables plug  into the ports firmly.  The braided cable finish is nice and appears to resist twisting.
 

Sound is balanced - none of the bass bloat that I was dreading. Bass is "tight" with good impact. 

 

 

My thanks to the other fellows who posted that the 4A would be a neutral CIEM.  And thanks to the OP (project86) who brought the brand to my attention.
 


My first CIEM - I wish I had purchased a pair earlier!  This is going to make airport transfers & flights so much more enjoyable.

4 weeks from sending the impressions ex Sydney to receiving the CIEM. beerchug.gif

Congrats MultiplexMan! As a fellow 4.A owner, I look forward to reading your review once you're settled in. Also post pictures, can't wait to see what they look like!

post #131 of 7980

I hope you enjoy them.

Heir is really tempting wink.gif, btw. has anybody from the EU ordered this?, just curious about the customs fee!! I can barely manage the cost for the 4As but don't have enough to pay an insane customs fee/vat!

post #134 of 7980

As Heir is located in China you will have to pay customs when ordering from the EU. Not sure about the rules in Germany, but here it's the moms (VAT) at 25% + a fee + a percentage depending on the type of goods ordered. 

 

Not many options for Europeans who do not want to pay taxes. All I can think of is Spiral Ear and ACS, but I'm sure there are others?

post #135 of 7980

I am really interested in fees to EU too. does any of you have some experiences about importing fees into europe?
