Thanks, Jim

I'm not sure what a "bite block impression" is, but all the audiologist did was squirt some silicone goop into my ears, let it set for a few minutes, pull them out, and mailed them off.

It would kinda be like an open mouth vs a closed mouth impression.

Glad you enjoy them.

They are on my long list of things wanted.

Thanks, Jim

I have reduced a broad selection down to a few tip assortments for my HF3's that all work. I look forward to switching off over time to filter down to what works best for me. All deliver bass and give me a nice, balanced sound that I am digging. It's kind of like an A161P and kind of like my RE-272 with more bass.

 

Of the Ety tips, I tried all and selected the large round foam and the mushroom-looking ones.

 

I also have selected medium Comply T-100 and Shure olives in small and medium.

 

Rocking the Shure mediums now. I've gotten used to the insertion and the Shures reliably fill the voids, as do the others. Pressure is not noticeable as I type this. Soon, I'll get to checking the rest out and comparing for fit versus sound. smile_phones.gif

I look forward to your final selection and sound comparisons.

I have had the custom tips for over a year and they are terrific. I travel a lot for work and some days I have them in for 6+ hours. I also use them in the gym and they work great for a boring treadmill day.  Highly recommended!

I have an old pair of ER-6i's that are still doing great. I am considering the custom tips and will eventually upgrade to the HF3's or possibly the ER-4PT's. Does anyone know if all 3 of these Etys use the same tip connector size? I would like to get them for the Er-6i's but be able to use them with the others in the future.

Also, can anyone comment on the durability of the custom tips over time? Has anyone had to order a 2nd set? Once Etymotic has the impressions, can you order a replacement set at a reduced price?

I appreciate any input on this!

I don't know it the tips work for the 6i's. They do for the hf2's and hf3's. They are very durable and comfortable. I have 2 sets, one for each of my hf2's and hf3's. They do keep your impressions on file. (They are digitally preserved for either 3 or 5 years) There was no discount for ordering later. The tips are made by ACS Custom in New York. ACS makes high end CIEM's like the T1 and T2. I have a pair of T1's and I really like them. They are made with the same Silicon material the custom tips are made from.
