Well, if you were an Otter, and had this nice little box, no worries while you are swimming!   biggrin.gif

Aurisonic's $10-$20 investment sure goes a long way :D

If you want to make a point, don't use 5 lb. I've just weighted a Pellican case I use for my CIEMs, and it weights less than 0.6 lb. The whole package cannot reach 5 lb. 

 

This said, even 1 lb isn't cheap, through USPS, and Matt already explained he was limited to this carrier. So the point is moot.

But seriously, are there any tips to opening this otterbox case?  It takes significant effort to open every time I use it.  

 

(I actually couldn't get it open when it arrived because it had pressurized while making the travel from sea level to 8150 feet elevation where I live.  I had to get one of my beast coworkers to open it up for me, which was a little embarrassing...)

Screwdriver? That's how I opened the hard plastic part of the Otterbox for my Desire HD the first few times biggrin.gif

 

It will probably get easier with time.

I'd love to, but I have a cervical spinal cord injury...I can't manage to put on any muscle weight.  I guess I could go train more, and just stare at the Otterbox case the whole time, see if I can intimidate into submission...

I should've just bought an otterbox and shipped my ear impressions in that smile.gif.

 

I was actually worried how much it would cost, since my shipping box was quite large and I put more weight in it than necessary.  I used FedEx based on Kunlun's information that they go door-to-door, and it cost me $148.00 [I live in the USA].

I wouldn't worry just based on my crazy packing.  I have no idea how most people ship their ear impressions.  Shipping them in the audiologist's box might be standard.  

 

Could others share how they pack their impressions?

What flimsy little audiologist box are you speaking of ? Surely not the Otterbox case Aurisonics ships in, that thing is built stronger than a tank. I have spent close to half an hour, busting my hands in the process just to try to open them; i finally found that wedging a knife in the black tab helps pry it open. For those awaiting their aurisonics, work those hand muscles ! You are going to need it.

Spoke with Matt at Springtree, telling him that i received the earphones, he said their new shipment coming in has already sold out, thanks to us ; P

Orders are flying and thankfully Aurisonics are made in the U.S, making the process of ordering new batches a breeze, as Springtree expects another batch next week
