When you (or your audiologist) orders them, the SCS by default will now be created "full shell".

Also, try to make sure to use (if you can) the Sensaphonics Gold Circle audiologist in your area. You can find out more about selecting one here: http://www.sensaphonics.com/sensaphonics-audiologist-network

Since I see that you live in North Carolina, I went ahead and looked for the audiologists in your state, and out of the 5 I found, 2 of them have the Gold Circle. I would call/email both of them and pick the one you feel is best for you and/or is closest to you:

I used to live in Greensboro and I rode my Suzuki 1100 CC all over NC. Nice hills and express ways.

Cool.  I want to hang out with my wrestling coach friend who owns some property in the Carolinas.  My only experience of that area is watching "House Hunters" on HGTV.  Disclaimer, I only watch this show when my fiance turns it on and watches it, as I would rather watch something MMA related, but it isn't a half bad show. :tongue_smile:

I had an issue with my left ear cutting out but I used some electronic cleaner and a qtip on all the connectors and its working fine now.

What you mean on the cutting out is stethoscope effect? There is lots of complaint on the Fiio cable providing bad stethoscope effect, this make me to holding the purchasing the cable.

I had the issue where it'd cut out if I held it a certain way. With a qtip and some electronic cleaner it fixed it completely. I haven't had a single problem with connection since then. I did order a replacement cable because the braiding bear the tip doesn't seem as tight as I'd like and I'm afraid it'd wear out faster than usual.

Yeah, thanks! I've been eyeing that list. Wonder if I could schedule an ear checkup appointment and see if I could lower the cost of molds with insurance. Doubt it but it'd be worth a try.

Happy to help, Jazic. I was able to use my co-pay to pay for ear wax extraction at my local urgent care (you need to make sure all wax is out of your ear canals before you get impressions), but when it came to the actual ear impressions, wasn't able to use insurance.

Maybe one of your gold circle audiologists will accept some form of insurance, not sure. It is worth a try to at least inquire. I haven't heard of anyone on here getting a gold circle audiologist to accept insurance for ear impressions, my guess would be the most an audiologist would accept insurance for would be for health-related activities such as ear checkups, ear wax extraction and the like.

Hi guys, I recently bought another pair IEM, I notice the Shure gives me louder volumes when listening to the same sound. I have to turn the volume down by at least 10db to match up with the other pair. I know all IEMs are different, but 10db in sensitives ? That is a lot.

Included in the box is a volume control to give you a secondary volume control for more control. 

 

Another option would be something like this: 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ETYMOTIC-ER4P-TO-ER4S-RESISTOR-ADAPTOR-3-5MM-PLUG-/290372905689

 

I have no idea where to get them or how much they cost but with some searching they can be found just like anything on the interwebs. 

 

EDIT: I found it on the interwebs in less than a minute and changed the link.

Just a question here, is it worth spending US200-400 for 846 cable?

If spook76, M Coupe, or any others who have the Headphone Lounge Silver Litz cables reads your question, I'm sure they would unequivocally respond with: yes!

 

I will let you know on this thread once I receive my Silver Litz.  I'm pretty sure I'll be saying "yes" as well! *crosses fingers*
