Well I read JH has different driver positioning and the way the sound tubes come together makes them sound better.
So Heir and UM are in China and Fisher and 1964 ears are US? and Fisher will pay for shipping both ways???
Are there any good reviews/comparison of all the top CIEM (UM, UE, JH)? The 16's are available to me right now.
I just don't want to wind up re-selling what ever I get due to them not working or paying over $100 extra to ship crap 5 or 6 times. People are selling brand new JH16's due to having them refit 7 times and not wanting to continue, id fly to JH and tell them I'm not leaving till they fit before I sold a $1000 IEM at a loss.
You are from the same neck of the wood. I live in Minneapolis.
As other have said, it really is dependant on the molds. GIGO, Garbage in, Garbage out.
I went to Audiologist hearing center in Edina... Michael Oscarson was the one that did my molds. The company was listed by UE but Mike has dealt with UE since JH was the owner. I have ordered and am receiving a pair of JH16+JH3 come tommorow (wednesday). I was in and out of the audiologist within 20 minutes. He uses the correct procedure (bite block, silicone etc). cost was $50 for BOTH ears. The guy knew what he was doing.
