You should clean your ears regularly. Just don't stick things (Q-tips, pencils, soldering irons...) in the ear canal. If you need to get crud that's lodged deeper, buy a bottle of Debrox and follow the instructions carefully.

You must also take into consideration that some people gain ear wax much faster than other people. I do clean my ears every other day as I do not gain ear wax that fast.

also the "seal" test by sonic innovations is based around silicone CIEMs.

Debrox is supposed to be that over the counter medication? What should I be using for day-to-day use to clean my canal. Just flush it with warm water everyday?

Dear Sir,

 

What seal test would you recommend for Heir Audio products?

Every morning in the shower, I tilt my head to the side to gently rinse my ears.

I just have my dog lick my ears every morning. It tickles a bit but it's very efficient.

Approved by audio-seal.

 

On topic: I received my 8.A yesterday (after paying $322 for customs and fees ;) ) and the first impression is that they fit in great, the seal is there, even when I open and close my mouth or move my head and the sound is very good (only listened for a couple of seconds). Will do more extensive listening to well known material today.

Now my question:

Is it recommended to burn in the 8.A, or is it just mumbo jumbo? I know almost everyone does it, but same goes for rubbing credit cards and coins if they weren't accepted by the machine for the first time.;)

OMG $322 :(... I'm glad you are liking them though. I was very lucky and avoided fees :). I did burn them in for 1 night after I finished my marathon with them. I was a bit surprised by how much they changed. At least to my ears they continued changing past 45 hours.

Burn-in is more about the listener adapting to the sound than the device changing its sound.

That said, some manufacturers recommend burn-in for their IEMs, and since most of them source similar parts, I suspect that most IEMs can benefit from it some.

When listening to the 8As initially they sounded a bit hollow and quite congested. They opened up noticeably with usage and I don't think that is due to me getting accustomed to the sound :).

Just wondering, is the UPS delivery signature required?
