This is so interesting. I just got a response from another Audiologist who is charging $170 for ear impressions and he says he gurantees 100% perfect impression. When I told him I need it for Heir Audio, he says "As for Heir Audio, I am unfamiliar with this brand, but after a quick look online, they seem to be alright. Certainly not the industry standard for musicians, but they seem alright for a consumer grade monitor. "
He's also not a doctor and not a lisenced Audiologist. However, he was trained by the Sensaphonics Golden Circle. Should I trust this guy or look somewhere else?
If I had to guess, that is probably the "fly in the ointment." There is a "history" between Audiologist and self made experts that sell hearing aids. Audiologist are required 8 years of college, hearing aid dealers, a GED and no felony record. In fact, the requirements to be a Tattoo artist are more strict....
Thus Audiologist and Hearing Aid Dealers do not "mix" well and when an oppertunity arrises that a disparaging comment can be offered about one or the other.... it usually is.
