Swimsonny... you're not imagining things I saw it too... I emailed the Wizard about seeing if the 6.A could be made into a IEM, after investigating the possibility he said they could not fit in the extra bits into the housing as it was designed for the 3.Ai & 4.Ai... maybe a little redesign of the housing so you could get both the 6.A & 8.A in a IEM form... anyone up for twisting the Wizards arm?

Oh good hahah. I have gone over the pages since they were announced many times to look for the post but its all good now.

 

So they could not be put into the housing that the 3 and 4 universals are using but it can indeed be done and Heir have in fact done it. They have made universal demos of all 4 models in which Jaben have. They are al in read or blue clear plastic shells and one is clearly the 8.A.

 

If it would be fully universal in the case how likely people would be able to get a good and comfy fit with it i do not know, as at a guess it will be large so i am reckon that is what  is from stopping it being done. All a guess though. I think that we should just be happy for the 3.Ai and 4.Ai for now and before wanting more out of Heir anyway.

I think it is in the Heir 4.Ai contest thread.

So just do prepaid and be done with it.

Paying freight before hand is the norm. How do you pay customs before hand?

I do not believe that that is something that can be done...yet.

If I'm not mistaken, prepaid is handled by Heir (which means you pay them how you normally would). So PayPal should be the method of choice.

Oh that's very convenient. Although UPS/Fedex sucks in Canada. Kinda was hoping for EMS or any postal carriers that Canada Post would handle with.

i do not think you can complain with UPS if they take a 3 days from china to UK. With EMS they always get stuck in customs and it will take at least a week before they arrive in customs. UPS are impressing me at the moment!

That is only for the freight, not the customs charge.

I think you're right. I seem to have misremembered.

 

So, yeah, still need a check. For those of you who don't have them, go to your local branch and they can print you out a couple. They're going to charge you, though.

They definitely do.  Do they accept cash as well?

Not here, someone has to be at home and such. Very annoying, esp when my parents are at work and I am at work/school all week long.

 

The shipment for these are September 1st right? So far, yet so close!

If you are asking about the duty tax, I was told that check is pretty much the only thing they will accept.

Sigh .... more money, but I guess the cost is well worth the quality and perfomance factor.
