Sorry, and thanks.

 

No worries. When I first sent my impressions then went to CA first and then I believe it took at least 3 weeks for them to get to China (unfortunately, I just looked and it appears I have every email they sent me except the 'we received your impressions' one).

 

I actually just sent them in for a refit a month ago and it took from March 13 to April 9 to get there, so almost exactly 4 weeks.

Thanks

I'd strongly advise you to send them an email asking for confirmation, because I was in your situation, waiting for the confirmation email for weeks. As it turned out, when I finally got an email from Heir, it was to show me pictures of my CIEM. No need to tell you it was a pleasant surprise, but if I had know they had received my impressions, I wouldn't have been worrying about my impressions getting lost in the middle of China. So just to be sure, ask them!

      I would strongly suggest you contact nina@micro-dsp.com or sunny@micro-dsp.com  to get a better understanding of what is going on. Don't worry about bugging them, they are there to help out.

Just back from mowing the lawn while wearing my precious 8.A. I was using a relatively silent electric model (94dBA) and I could only hear it when no music was playing. Excellent noise isolation.

If anyone is having fit issues and are having trouble identifying what the problems are and need help in conveying that information, I recommend checking out this ultimate ears guide. They have a interactive app that can really help you identify what all the different areas are in the monitor. The RMA form from heir audio was not detailed enough for me but this is pretty good if you are a beginner in this.

Dude it says right on them "8A" in the picture!
Wizard himself posted that he put a pair of 8A in a custom universal mold for a distributor, I would guess so their customers or clients could try them out.
Yes, many of us would pay dearly for an 8a in a universal housing. I think the 5.0 is as close as we are getting, otherwise he just would have put in all eight drivers.

Oh crap, thanks, I shouldn't have skimmed the last few pages of the thread.

Those shells look nice though. Heir should try giving their customers the option of different shell colors for their universal line. I'm guessing they would sell rather well.

If you look on the shell it says 8A ;).

To his defense, it takes good eyes. I hadn't noticed either!
