Hi, i recently got a custom IEM, JH13s. I came from a Westone 4 and being new to custom iems, i'm not sure about the fit, seal and isolation my jh13s provide.
I used my westone 4 with olives, so usually i can barely hear ambient noises and people talking around me, even without music playing.
However, when i tried my jh13s, it turns out different from what i expected. The fit is great, but i can still hear noises/sounds of my surroundings. As i stay in Asia, shipping it back to them will take a long time plus i'm not sure about the issue myself, so figured i would check here. Couldn't find any threads specifically that have answers i'm looking for...
Couple of questions for those with custom iems, Do you get better isolation with universals+foamies? Do you hear ambient sound a whole lot with ur custom iems, eg, like the tv playing in another room?
How is it that the fit is great, no pressure, not feeling pain not comfort issues but the isolation feels lacklustre compared to universals with foam tips?
Appreciate all your feedback, insight and comments. Thanks :)
