Cosmic Ears - new CIEM company with great prices (including Hybrid designs!) - Page 138

About HY3, since it is an hybrid design and has dynamic driver in it, does it leak sound? Is there an isolation problem? Compared to BA, acrylic shells, do we lose something?

post #2057 of 4287

I dont think HY3 are ported, even though they use dynamic drivers. So the isolation should be same like other models.

Hi,

 

I'm looking for a CIEM to replace my Klipsch X10i.

 

I'm thinking about BA4, BA5, BA6 or HY3.

 

Is any of you did use a Klipsch before going to Cosmic Ears ?

 

I was very disappointed by UE 900 and want to find the good CIEM.

I was gonna say that some of my customs are really flush or even shallow looking, others protrude more, it kind of depends on the drivers and the individual build.

I wouldn't go quite THAT far :)  Apparantly Phil had done them the way he did (I'll try to post pics later!)on purpose.  He was concerned with the cable fouling the fit by being too flush with the ear and fouling the fit.  Unfortunately the socket is too far away now so I can't route the cable properly now due to the ********* memory wire.  If I take the cable off then the iem fits better than it ever has (it might need a layer of thickening, but I can't tell because of the size!).  However with the cable reattached I can't get it to fit again.  It also looks slightly odd as the right sticks further than the left (the iems, not my ears thankuverymuch!).  I'm slightly irritated on this one as if they had done it like normal then this would most likely have been it.  I'm going to be sending them back in with a failed set that I know the cables fine on and he's going to use that to reduce the size of the shells.  The ma's also need a touch of thickening on the right and we are there on that one (I wouldn't necessarily send them back for this on their own but as the tf's are going back it makes sense to!)

 

Cheers

Hey,

 

Any CE owners mind answering some questions for a newbie?

 

1. From when you requested the shop to be enabled, how long did it take to get the CIEMs in your hands? Any way to fast track your order? (BA2s are what I'm looking at atm)

 

2. For US customers, can you FX yourself and pay in Euros?

 

3. Do you recommend the pre-fit service for a first-time user of CIEMs?

 

4. Would these CIEMs be safe to run in? I would assume not.

 

Thanks!

1. Depends on the model

2. FX? Just pay in Euro or $

3. Absoluteley!

4. I don't see why not, unless for the safety aspect. they isolate very well

 

On a side note, I'm listening to my new CE ciems right now, that's all I'll say for now.

post #2062 of 4287

I'm looking at the BA2s.

 

Thanks for the info!

post #2063 of 4287

Rush order is 40 euros - however that might not make a difference as they have no cables right now.

It's safe to run with them if it's safe not to hear what's around you. You're probably not likely to get run over by a car or mugged when you're in the gym tongue.gif Wouldn't recommend it if you're crossing roads and stuff though.

post #2064 of 4287

I haven't received a response to even be able to put in an order for one (my shop is still disabled). It's been 2-3 days.

 

Considering the cable shortage, do you think I should start shopping around for audiologists right now or hold off?

post #2065 of 4287

Get your impressions now. Then you can ship them as soon as you hear back from Phil, that way he will have already received them once the cables come in.

I walk around all the time with my CIEMs, no troubles. You just have to be very careful and be very cautious of your surroundings.

Depth of the monitors in the hollow of your ear, will be dictated by two factors. 1) how many (and indeed type of) drivers that have to be fitted into the shell and 2) how shallow your ears are. In my case, for both my HY3 and my re-shelled TF10's, both factors come into play. I have shallow ears and also the amount of hardware in the shells that has to be accommodated. This means neither of them fit flush with the hollow of my ear, but neither do they protrude excessively. With them in, I can lie on them without undue comfort, but to an observer, they would absolutely be able to see I was wearing them.

Heya guyz,

i've got my impressions done today and i'm trying to contact phil but i got no reply.

can you confirm me phil[at]cosmicears.com?

 

My impressions are quite good but there's a little dirt on them from inside the ear, i dunno if i ruin them removing it...

How is the cable shortage goin? Any news?

 

PS: if i can stretch my budget enough i will go for the BA2, otherwise BA1.
