Any recommendations for audiologists in the Bay Area, San Francisco? I've called a few places and their prices are absurdly high ($100+ starting).

 

Would like to get my first pair of CIEMs!

I'd be interested to know on how many guys went for the harmony since beginning of the pre order

Believe me, if I had the cash spare, I definitely would have given Peter a chance to impress me. Maybe some day soon... :smile_phones:

Exactly if I only had spare funds.

i think the reason is because all of us were saving for the Harmony yet once delayed we all went for something else, and now when it did get announced we all went back to saving :P 

 

so no one did pre order the harmony at all?! ouch :<

Looking forward to your impressions! After going silicone, not sure I can ever go back to acrylic customs anymore so the Harmony is at the top of my list.
post #913 of 1461
Same here
I think indeed, silicone nailed it. I'm not a fan of acrylic at all. To sensible to fit because of head movements etc, so silicone is a real luxury.

It's been a quite clear addition for me since I got in the world of ciems:

Silicone + Piotr's overwhelming (aftermarket or not) presence and contact quality + spotless work = why the heck should I go somewhere else...
.

I still need to try out some high end universals, but that will wait a year or so.

I see significant number of opinions here on headfi stating that silicone CIEMs are much more comfortable than acrylic CIEMs as well as that silicone CIEMs isolate better. Well, my experience is opposite as to the comfort. Although both types of CIEMs work for me, but if I had to choose I would choose acryl (it does not stick to the inner ear as silicone does, it is easier to remove and insert). As for the isolation I would say they are on pair (different frequencies are attenuated by each of them).

Fully agree as to the Peter's work and customer service. Cheers Peter:beerchug:

Both can be comfortable.

 

Both can be uncomfortable.

 

 

Even though one might imagine that silicone would automatically be more comfortable because it is soft and acrylic is hard, it's more about accuracy of fit than it is about the material used.

 

But I do feel that silicone attenuates external noise a little better than acrylic.

 

 

...but I've never tried a silicone-filled (like SA-43) or acrylic-filled (like fitear CIEMs)  acrylic shell, so either of those might be as good at attenuation as full silicone.
