Thanks. Purple is actually perfect because I was thinking of getting purple as my next set. Worked out perfectly! :D

 

But is it just me or are all the models currently out of stock? Also, is it possible to get 1 dynamic 2 mids and 2 highs if I went for flex? I'm sorry I have to ask all these questions but all I see on their site is out of stock so I can't see what different options there are.

I still have the receipt. Also, if I'm not mistaken we can only get purple shell for HY3, right? Or can we do a custom color for additional cost? And it comes with detachable cables by default, right? By the way, did you ever get a good fit on your CIEMs? Or still sending back and fourth?


Gave up and got refund after the fourth attempt.  Then went with Minerva (uk)fit problems with those AND a faulty driver so those have gone back for a refund as well.  Third times the charm.  Phils been more than helpful with a few suggestions so I'm praying this is it.

 

Oh and regards to audiologist I would get a new set done if the price isn't too bad, but first give Phil a photo of your impressions just to make sure.

 

Cheers

Yeah, I likely will get a new set done. I don't mind paying for a new set but certainly would not mind if my audiologist decided to give me one on the house or half price since she messed up my first impression that I paid in pull for. I'm still wondering if it was the fact that she said I did not need to use a bite block. I thought I'd just listen to her and not insist on having a bite block since she works with westone and says she does plenty of impressions all the time.

I believe my order was placed on Sep. 10 and they had my impressions on Spe.17. This morning the status was still shell creation. Anyway, requested a refund although I have waited for 5 weeks.

On the cosmic ears site it states that it's a open mouth with bite block.  You'd better take something in case they don't have any (happened to me once).

Actually in the impression kit instruction manual that comes with the kit it is specified that you can do the impression with open mouth or closed depending on the type of fit you are looking fore. Open mouth for tighter fit (musician on stage etc) and closed for casual listening for prolonged periods of time (don't quote me on the exact instructions since I no longer have them). I did min with closed mout, since I have kinda powerful jaws and my ear canals really deform severely when I open my mouth, and I could not be happier with my descission. Fit is outstanding! Enjoying my twin BA flex micros several hour every day now :)

Then I might do better with a closed mouth. I remember my audiologist saying that I didn't need a bite block and to just close my mouth after she finished putting the stuff in my ear and I ended up opening my mouth on my own because I didn't trust her. I guess I should have listened and closed my mouth cause when I open my mouth, I feel the seal break on my CIEMs. Since you have a closed mouth impression, have you ever tried to eat with them on? Does the seal break or do you feel discomfort? I some times eat with ciem on and I can't cause I feel immediate discomfort and seal breaking.

They have an issue with cable supply at the moment, so rather than take orders that they can't currently meet, they are showing out of stock. The cable issue is expected to be resolved very soon.

 

Don't think they offer the Flex combo you mention there.

Did you contact them ? They are readily contactable through Skype and responded to me several times yesterday through Skype text, with queries I had.

 

I also got an email from them today saying they had been having some issues with their system that tells people the status of their orders. They think they have that sorted out now.

Oh, I see. Yeah, I just read the first page and saw all the options available for flex. Thanks!

As I understand it the pure plus is a choice between dynamic or ba. I'd imagine (though obviously not heard them) that the dynamic would have more if not better bass.

Cheers.
