be sure to mark the parcel as 'fragile'.

You seem to forget the custom there is a pain. I would assume Chinese custom is no different since they are both communist.

 

Better go with Fedex, UPS, DHL, or ParcelForce (personally I don't like ParcelForce though).

Thanks tranhieu, do you remember if you sent the package with airsure? Been checking online quickly and royalmail has the better pricing but I'm worried about wether my impressions will get there. Thanks.

They will get there eventually, the matter is how long, as people already mentioned in this thread Chinese custom sometimes hold the package longer than you can expect. With couriers the chance is less likely.

 

Impressions shrink over time, at faster speed if shore hardness is low.

Just had my impressions done. But I'm not sure if I want to use them, I forgot the guidelines I printed from heir too.
She didn't have any bite blocks and made a make shift one with paper towels.. I'll post pics later but wanted to hear peoples thoughts on whether to use them? Thanks.

Did you keep your jaw steady while the silicone was curing? You should be fine if you did.

post #2337 of 7980
Yes I did. Its just odd she didn't have any bite blocks also she done them one at a time and said they only needed a few minutes to cure.
post #2338 of 7980

Mine took 3 or 5 minutes to fully cure. My audiologist did my right and left ear one at a time too.

Those are the ugliest CIEMs the Wizard has ever made! eek.gif

 

Joking apart ... Yeah, I don't like the blemish either. My audiologist here redid an impression for less than that.
