Excessive cleaning caused dryness.

Most of what our bodies create is done for a reason.  In most cases the ear is self-cleaning; the only time I've cleaned my ears is before getting my impressions made by an audiologist (who then warned me to not to do it often).

The last time when I go to doctor to clean my earwax was last year before I made my impression for my first CIEM (Westone ES5). This year, I would like to make FitEar MH335DW and I went to doctor and ask for cleaning the earwax again. The doctor checked both of my ears are clean without earwax, he also did some simple hearing tests with me, and told me there is no need to clean them again. So I guess from doctor's perspective, there is no need to clean the earwax unless they are really affecting your hearing.

 

P.S. I just use wet towel to clean my ears (just wash the part at the entrance of the ear holes)

my brother had a temporary ring in his ears and he went to the doctor and he said he got too much earwax. when he got the earwax out, my brother was fine again...

Fairly good idea. My humble opinion is that people should just give opinions on customs they own or owned, not demoed or heard of.

On this topic, and this is my opinion strictly, if I have to to find aspects that SOME people may feel are disadvantages:

The Miracles are a bit thin sounding in the mids. I often like this because it makes them airier but people who like more engaging mids will not. Compared to the SE5 I also sometimes feel they lack note weight.

The SE5 are rather intimate soundind with soundstage on the narrow side, but quite deep. They take a bit longer thamln acrylic ciems to put in and pull out. On the upside they are more comfortable.

I basically hate the fit of CIEMs. 

Also, my UM Miracle was quite a bit less bright than I was expecting from the reviews. Not sure whether there was a revision or not since older ones seem to be brighter.

Maybe Fitear or Silicone would suit you better?

Alright. Back on topic.

 

UERM lacks mid bass quantity. It's quality is great, but it's lean on quantity.

Maybe silicone would be more comfortable, but I font think that I'll be trying a CIEM anytime soon. Isn't fitear acrylic?

Yes Fitear is Acrylic but they have a completely different technique and their ciems are not as deep and rely more on the outer part...much more comfortable users say. Anyways I founs the Miracles comfortable but the se5 are much more so.

Right. But wouldn't that affect isolation?

According to friends who use them, isolation is excellent for some reason. I will tell you when I get a pair smily_headphones1.gif

I just had impressions taken. I'm feeling anxious because my ear canals are very narrow and may be a problem for fit. I am ordering 1964 V6-Stage. Should I be concerned?
