I need some recommendations too, I'm bored.

 

I was thinking of buying a BHSE and a Liquid Lightning to have around for comparisons.

Uh oh, give this man something to do before he decimates his wallet!

Well, you can't get into a much worse group of people than the KKK... >:(

Hehe, so you're 6'-2?

It hasn't been fun trying to find a GR07 tip that keeps the mids/treble from getting spikey or recessed in certain areas while getting good isolation. Right now I'm using single flange hybrids with it, which sound the best and isolate only mediocrely.

 

Just add me on Skype then, it's the same as my H-F username. Anyone else that hasn't added me on Skype is free to as well.

Nope. You could be a loli lover 

 

 

5"10 :(

 

Just use biflanges and be done with it. 

 

DON'T DO IT DON'T ADD HIM HE'LL JUST TROLL YOU TO NO TOMORROW!@#!

True, but I'm sure you could find some pristine lolis while rummaging around varies villages.

Damn. You're an inch taller than me. Maybe I should wear those K-dude stacked shoes.

I must admit, as much as I love headphones and their looks, CIEM's seem like a more durable and robust investment for me if they sound good.

Changstar is a place... They have a few CIEM measurements.

There are some advantages and disadvantages to CIEMs. (All of these are IMO)

Pros:

-Guaranteed fit (if they don't fit perfectly you can send them back and have them remade for free most of the time)

-Good to very good isolation (if properly fit)

-Custom artwork

-No having to roll tips to find god tips that isolate well and keep the sound tolerable

 

Cons:

-Must be reshelled every 2 years or so

-Impressions cost extra money

-Lower resale value

-Less bang/buck. You're paying about $200-$250 generally just to have the custom molds made, so they generally match UIEMs that cost $200 less IME

 

For me, the pros outweigh the cons, especially the isolation and having to not play the tip rolling game.

LOL

I can see it happening: I'm lying unconscious on the ground dying of some mysterious heart failure problem that isn't prevalent in the U.S.A. at all, paramedics arrive with the A.E.D. paddles, then out of nowhere comes MrViolin saying "step aside fellow denizens!" *pulls out an O2, connects the O2 to an iDevice with an expensive ALO Audio LOD for the highest fidelity, plugs-in an HE-500 and places the "paddles" around my ears*

"CLEAAAAAAAAR!!!!!!*transparent audio*" exclaims MrViolin and miceblue is suddenly revived with a jolt of pure awesome sound.

 

 

CIEM's have to be reshelled? Why? Aren't they made of acrylic plastic?

As for the resell value, how would that work? Would the buyer just get the CIEM remoulded?

If we are giving each other our heights, I can proudly say that I'm 6' -4"

Your ear canals change shape. Solid acrylic customs would need more frequent reshelling than silicones.

Ah I see. Dang, how much would that cost? Maybe CIEM's aren't as future-proof as I thought they would be.

This is the most epic post in the history of this thread. Bravo. Only you could have out-trollen me.

 

Yes they have to be reshelled. You send them back and they remold them.

http://www.1964ears.com/products_remolds.html Like the one you quoted. Usually free remolds are offered before a certain time period (if they mess up for example). Not to mention your ears can only grow so fast anyways. Nail polish works when you're in a pinch as well.
