But if you're planning on getting fitter and dropping a few pounds then even silicone may not isolate well, so don't buy any CIEMs until after you've become an adonis, eh, AmberOzL? :(


Well, I can't survive with that bad fit no more, the sound and the isolation is really annoying me so I really need a remolding. I still have something like 20 kilos to lost, so we will see how it will end up, if I need another refit, so be it, there are nice companies around :rolleyes:

I recall being told that silicone and acrylic both attentunate different frequencies.  Having said that I've found the Custom Art CIEM to be very isolating.  You might (barely) top it with a tri-flange Etymotic but for me the comfort issue means said Etymotic won't stay in my ears very long; a good custom can be inside your ears for many, many hours without discomfort.

So far, all I can say is, Peter even helps to his customers on holidays. Always reply emails in a very short time. Usually I get direct answers, if not, he still manages to reply my questions in the same day.

 

We are talking about excellent service here. As my situation was a bit funky, I had a lot of things to ask but Peter answered everything with patience and knowledge. I am really satisfied so far.

 

This morning I sent the ear impressions to him, I am getting Music One (which Peter has all the freedom customize them the way he wants) and a surprise project. We will see how things will go but so far, I couldn't be happier I guess. Obviously I am hoping to get great sounding products from him but I am paying attention to the seal carefully. I really want to get perfect fit and seal, as well as isolation.

 

PS: I wish I had money to get Harmony 8 too :frown:

I can only say the same: Piotr has been amazingly patient and responsive with me, even checking my impressions via email.

Awesome service, I cant wait to get my Pro330v2!
