That's awesome.

Yeah warren, I don't go around stalking people's profiles. And I did know. As of a few seconds ago. 

 

Yeah, it could've been Japan as well I suppose based solely on the prime minister comment.  You should check out some of his vids, then the Australian part will be pretty evident.  They're also very entertaining.  I particularly like the backing tracks.  They're like corporate seminar videos for British Airways.

 

And as far as not stalking people's profiles, well why the hell not?  That's what they're there for!  smile.gif

Yes, they're more of an obsession for me than audio, most of the time.

 

Well, technically some of those belong to the wife.  wink.gif  And some you'll never fit into because of your Thor-like proportions.

My Sentra might not be all that fun to drive, but it's much better on mileage, maintenance, and doesn't attract the wrong kind of attention after 9 PM haha

 

I'm sure if you Nizmo'd the heck out of it, you'd have a lot of fun with it too, because then it would exceed your preconceptions about it.  Is it an SE-R variant by any chance?

Stop eke! You might flip and wapow. Unless it's one of the sedans. But it's still dangerous. So stop!

 

Oh, I don't do anything overly stupid. A decade of Need for Speed has trained me well.

 

Oh, well then you'll be fine.  Plus, decent tires and suspension will do wonders, and I'm sure you've got that covered.

You sound disappointed.

Yeah well what can I say I felt pretty dumb when I realized I was hearing the charge circuit. I even sent AnakChan a PM describing my issue and asking him if he had experienced any similar issues. I'm going to feel even dumber once I tell him I figured out what the problem was. At least all problems are solved or at least for the most part. If ALO would just answer my email and send out my missing knobs I'll be one happy head-fier. It's really hard trying to turn the amps nubs. The bass nub is particularly hard and I'm finding my sausage fingers sometimes causes the volume nub to move.

 

Oh no, not saying it's dumb.  Just that you seem to have it all figured out before anyone can even wrap their head around what the problem might be.  And before you even think about feeling dumb about this, just think of the next guy/gal you'll help when they experience the same thing.  smile.gif

I can fit in all of them, even the Isetta, I just hunch over a little while driving. She can have any of the cars, but many of them scare her too much for her to get behind the wheel. wink.gif

I have a dilemma, should I go with option A which is to do ear impressions by myself and risk breaking an eardrum or Option B which is to do the ear impressions using an Audiologist but risk breaking my wallet?

post #8585 of 21760

Go to an audiologist. I did my own ear impressions before and the end result was a nightmare. Better to get it done right the first time....
 

post #8586 of 21760
Impressions shouldn't be too expensive. Call and ask before you set an appointment. Make sure they are used to doing impressions for in ear monitors, or at least deep hearing aids.

It's funny what makes something good 'backing music'. I'm always on the lookout now.

 

As far as disappointment goes, I've been disappointed for a long time. The state of Australian politics is such that the only party's platform I fully endorse is the Australian Sex Party. And since voting is compulsory in Australia, that is actually a serious proposition on my part.

Actually, I think I was referring to the sidecar, but okay I see what you mean.

Option A (which is to do ear impressions by myself and break an eardrum) = breaking your wallet.  Skip the pain, pay the dude[tte].  smile.gif

I pretty much like everything I've heard so far... though once in a while, a lady will kind of belt it out like she's singing for her supper.  But aside from that, it's very soothing.

 

Come to the States mate!  smile.gif

It is a very bad idea to do them oneself for several reasons:

  • A good audiologist putt the stopper as deep as possible without touching the eardrum, so he has to see what he is doing and now what it looks like
  • The print taking process is quite irritating for your canals and could be all the more so if you do it yourself
  • The audiologist will check you canals first. You may have some iritations / infections / weird alien  in your ear that would require to see an ENT first (it happened to me, I had weird bumps, and the ENT said they were normal), before risking inflamming you ears any further

 

I would be suspicous of an audiologist who is too cheap.

Eardrums are more valuable than money IMO so if I were you I'd definitely go to an audiologist.

Well after everyone's opinion looks like Im going to be calling up various audiologists ^^ (after my exams of course)

Wait, I must be missing something.  I thought it came down to a SE535 reshell or an HD 650?  Now CIEM?  So lost...

It's called Rubber ducking.

 

And it's rather effective I must say.

Reshelling a universal usually results in a custom.

Although if you're crafty you could try buying empty SE535 shells and DIY.

Oh, I just assumed that he would do the simplest form of a restorative fix.  redface.gif  My bad.

 

In other news, there are these two cats getting it on outside my window.  The problem is, I'm trying to get a little listening in at the end of a long day.  Should I go outside and put a stop to it?  They're being rather obnoxious right now.
