normally it's easy to see if it's empty or full.... it's an important question to me, can someone confirm please?

post #3543 of 7980

I think FullCircle or BangkokKid should be able to shed some light on the matter...

Sorry for the Off Topic Guys.

 

Just wondering if you guys have seen and want to participate in this:

We're hoping the thread will be added to the Home page to make it more visible to everyone.

My 4.A has no fill.

I have another custom with a partial fill (basically the length of the nozzle plus a little), and to be honest, while the ambient noise blocking is improved the difference in practice is not as great as you'd think.

There is a useful explanation of why in some Starkey literature I read a while back: if the environment is sufficiently loud the sound is going to be conducted through your bones as much as through the ear canal, and the law of diminishing returns apply.

Thank you for your explanations...

 

Is it possible to send them to reparation if they break (the shell)?

That definitely is buckeye, in fact that is a reeaaaaly nice selection of buckeye. Those look gorgeous.
post #3548 of 7980

Agreed that buckeye looks amazing! I'm really worried about how mine are going to look, I sould get proofs soon I hope.

Thanks guys for the compliments.

I got my tracking number and they should be here by Friday.

I'm going to call UPS and try to pick it up because I won't be at home.

i was pretty scare of the kind a hole thin in there, but it seem to look better in time lol

Doubtful, but does Heir do reshells for customs from other companies?

 

These designs are making me super PB&Jelly

Heir reshelled a TF10 for me, but that was way back though. Wouldn't it be a bit silly to pay $100+ for the reshell, 100+ for wood/etc and 55 for shipping though?

post #3553 of 7980

Yeah if it costs $250 that would definitely be silly. In that case, I'm happy with my basic acrylic colors.

Called UPS just now to see if I could pick up the package since no one will be at home Friday.

Sure enough, I have to wait for one delivery attempt and then call to schedule it.

Won't be getting my 4.A until Monday afternoon now. frown.gif
