15 to 20 is quite ok. 70£ is just crazy!

Should be getting my ma's and tf10 by friday now.  Mix up in the lab with phils instructions, so he's made the shipping expedited to make up for it.

 

Edit it was september last year I started this whole malarky!

It was specsavers that wanted £70, Boots wanted £100. I'm at a loss for words how they came to those figures.

 

I'll have to wait until I visit family back in Birmingham

No other's around to try?  I didn't go with them for various reasons but even Scrivens were "only" quoting £50.00

 

Cheers

Not that Google Maps was able to point me towards. I'll have to start patrolling the different parts of Brighton to find more =P

No hearing aid specialists around that may be able to help?

Should be getting those on friday from CE :)  My idea as I suggested getting the colours to match as close as possible.  Not too shabby :)  Hopefully the fits right now as well... 

Phil's just posted those on facebook page.

The cable is the one from the Tfi or is a new one?

That's a beautiful colour! My plain "smoke" shells are gonna be jealous. How much extra did you pay for the custom colours?

Wow, those do look very nice. Creative idea actually - the TF10, for all their ergonomic failures, are actually pretty unique looking, and even attractive.... until you realize how poor the fit is. 

 

Phil is sending me the revised BA4 (formerly called the BA4F) to compare to my early model. Should be interesting to see if he managed to capture the ultra-high resolution but make it less analytical.

Those tf10 shots are a second attempt actually :)  The first set looked similar but the black wasn't solid enough and tended to blur with the rest of the shell.  Discussed it with Phil, and as I had to send back for fit issues (ho ho) he asked if it would be ok to re do them.  Those are the result.


Cheers

After reading your review on Inner Fidelity I'm curious to know what changes he implemented.  Let us know if they'd earn a 'Thing we Like' tag in it's new iteration.

 

P.S. If Phil is in the mood to share I would like to know when the HY5 is due.  I haven't owned a hybrid yet.

Looks great, dude. Understated and classy.

I think that is so damned hip I could scream (like a girl) - almost wish I hadn't sold my TF10's - I would have used that color combination on a reshell - hell, I may still do so down the road. Great choice - great execution!!

You can still get extremely low prices on amazon.com and send it to Phil to create his miracle wink.gif Seems like it is worth it.
