   At the least, open mouth, a lot of audiologist, hearing aid dealers do not have bite blocks. :(

I've ordered a Wizard design Kaiser 10 and have inserted a link to that image in the notes field. Do you suggest using a bite block when getting your impressions done?


As I stated, getting a 50/50 wood face plate would be difficult, and the design in the photo was a miracle to do in the first pace as wood is very random.   Two Tone Amboyna, we can supply for sure....   but a 50/50 ratio we could not insure that. We can look into it and see if we could find a way to do it, but no gaurantees.

 

Thanks

I'm not The Wizard, but I would recommend using a bite block when getting impressions. It helps a lot for some people so you won't lose the seal when you smile or yawn or swollow or sing, etc.
And since having a seal makes all the difference in getting the best sound, try to work with an audiologist who has experience with musicians' monitors.

Sure, that is ideal, but Noble customers are world wide, and in some areas of the world, a bite block is unheard of. 

 

Consider this, the number of University Audiology programs in Singapore is 0 (as in ZERO, as in NONE)

Well in my (humble) experience, using two fingers will replace the bite block.

No problem John. I'd be happy to own any of your custom wood designs.

I've found that dental supply stores will have bite blocks for sale.  If I can buy them in a third world country (Colombia) I think it shouldn't be overly difficult to obtain them elsewhere.  I do think a good audiologist will supply them, but my first audiologist used a thick popsicle stick instead.  The second audiologist had bite blocks and his results were far superior (for more reasons than just the bite block).  This might be one of those 'test the waters' questions you can use when you're searching for your audiologist.

 

If you're near the Vancouver B.C. area (Lower Mainland) I give my strongest recommendation to:

 

Jamie Larsen

604/528/8884

The man has his own CIEMS and is both intelligent and patient.  He won't let you walk out if your impressions aren't excellent.  This guy knows what he's doing and as a result two refits (Custom Art Pro330 and JH13Pro) now fit me perfectly.

I am lucky as in Shanghai we have two European trained audiologists that are great...ok sorry back to topic...

Anyone who has heard the Noble 6 and K10 could tell me what other top tier they sound thr closest to? Like 1plus2, Fitear 334 or 335, JH13, etc.

A couple other people got to compare the two and also found differences, though not as much as I did. My ear canals, however, are 2.5 times larger than average, so I'm not a representative sample -- but are you? Another advantage of CIEMs, beside the perfect fit, is also, I surmise, a more consistent sound. However, you may note that the Wizard himself enjoys one of his universal IEMs (the Noble 6) best of all.

 

Thanks, that was actually a great answer to my question a few days back regarding the difference between the NB4 universal and NB4.  So I thought that it would benefit others to bring it up right before the 20% deadline :wink_face: or not...:angry_face:  Sorry to hear about your 2.5 times larger ear canals than average. I'm sure it benefits you in other ways.. I mean larger ears, feet etc often indicates a larger sized libido or something else more measurable that out female counterparts may enjoy.. Okay, I'm very well aware of that I'm out of bounce..
