Sounds like it could be neat, but you'll probably want to PM or email someone at Heir since they're the only ones who can say if they can do it.

The ear molds are nothing to worry about and it shouldn't hurt at all. Make sure that you have your ears cleaned prior to having your impressions made so you do not have to reschedule.
Customs will not isolate as well as the impressions do because the impressions are dynamic whereas the ciem is static. They will come close to that level though.

Contact John however the last I knew they could engrave wood. It may depend on the type of wood.

Even close that'll be excellent...now I need some way to just forget I ordered anything for the next couple months.

Whoo! UPS did not mess up. My 4.A is already burning into my ears, and I think that I'm adjusting to them pretty quickly. I like these a lot. And they're downright beautiful.

 

That being said, I do have a pretty important question. Am I going to be billed for the customs charges later and how much should I expect to have to pay for that?

Not yet anyway. They just dropped the package at the door. I wasn't there to pick up my package (high school) and my mother was out at work.

Woah UPS just dropped off a package worth a few hundred dollars without even calling or sticking a slip on the box saying there were duties?? I know FedEx does that sometimes and sends you a bill but I have never had or heard of UPS doing that. I think you might've gotten lucky and they overlooked your package tongue.gif

Heir has absolutely amazing customer service, I just had to be said again. Their commitment to absolute customer satisfaction is something that needs to be applauded.

I didn't say that they were physically burning in. They were "burning into my ears." That means I was getting used to them, as they are my first set of customs and I hadn't heard a 4.Ai, so I wasn't familiar with their sound signature.

 

So, the first time I put them on, they isolated super well on both sides and everything was great. I took them out for a little while and have come back to them. They feel the same, but now the right side doesn't wanna isolate sound.

 

Edit: Never mind. Part of the learning experience. CIEMs seal up perfectly and isolate well when you get them in their proper placement. But, that proper placement seems to be very, very exact and it's really finicky. Even if it feels the same at first, it might isolate less. It's gonna take a while to get used to these enough that I can do it in one try.

Happened to me. Collected it from them, and got a letter one week later asking me to pay for the duties....

Damn. There goes my wishful thinking.
