From what I have since learned, it takes your ears a little while to get used to having something like a CIEM in them for any real length of time, especially if you're not doing a particularly good job of inserting them (which I wasn't).

If you're feeling any discomfort give it a few says, as you said. Play around with how you insert them, shift them a bit in your ears. If you're feeling anything beyond mild discomfort you might want to bug Heir or talk to your audiologist. But it's definitely worth waiting a bit, as long as you're not in any serious pain.

Yeah, I've got some mild discomfort, but I think that's more my fault than the customs. I cleaned out my ears yesterday and today (spraying warm water in them as was recommended by the doctor, not anything potentially bad like q-tips) in preparation of these arriving and after doing so today my ears were a bit sore. Fortunately, even with my ears being a bit sore I had no problem wearing them for a couple hours, so overall I'm quite pleased so far.

I'm actually surprised how easy it seems to insert mine. It takes me a couple tries to get them in the right starting position, but after that they smoothly twist right in. I was actually expecting there to be more difficulty/resistance, but I guess a decent seal doesn't require them to feel really tight and hard to insert.

Indeed, I got to the point where I was slotting mine into place one-handed and popping them out with similar ease and I had a great seal. Man… I really miss those 4.A’s… I hope my 8.A comes home soon.

When an order is first placed with Heir Audio for a cutsom, is the order status "being produced" or is it something else?

So I take it yours would fairly easily/gently slide in once you got the motion down?

Good to know that you don't have to have difficult-to-insert customs to get a proper seal.

Now the weirdest thing right now for me is that they've been out for the past hour but it still feels like they're in eek.gif quite a weird sensation.

I believe mine was always "being produced"

Got the email from Sunny that mine are now ready for shipping....small issue....I don't like them!


I tried to design my own design and it looked much better in my mind than on the finished product!

 

Going to see if I can change the design and this time let The Wizard come up with something as my design skills are cr@p!

 

Think this is going to be an expensive mistake frown.gif

What happened? Didn't your order hit their main headquarters around the same time as mine? Or are your ear impressions bad? I know they had mentioned on the thread of a really bad set of ear impressions. Was that yours? :(

 

Actually if this is the case why not talk with them to add to your order? Sunny is very accommodating. Try shoot them an email. They have great customer service! I made some changes to my order at the last minute as well. Very hard to make decisions which so many wonderful options to choose from! :).

The clear canal shells look fantastic. Great choice with the black & inlay.

I was agonizing for a long time on exactly what to get. Initially I was gonna go for the left shell light blue and the right shells light greenish blue. But it ended up costing more than I wanted to spend and in my heart I really like black and its cheaper too! ;) lol.
