I think all three CIEM manufacturers (UE, JH and Noble) are bringing audiologists.

Awesome!  :smile:  Yeah, because meets usually have free audiologists and show discounts, they are often the best way to get a pair of customs.  Just out of curiosity, which models are you most interested in?

If I am flying into John Wayne airport, is there a shuttle or some means to get to Westin?  It would seem silly to rent a car but would take much too long to walk.

  • Hours: Hours of operation
  • Travel Time: 10 minutes
  • Contact: (714) 540-2500
  • About: Onsite;  Complimentary shuttles run between the John Wayne Airport and the hotel, departing every 30 minutes. Call the hotel directly to arrange for the shuttle to pick you up from the airport after your flight's arrival.

Well, a very good question. I travel quite a bit on business, often taking long flights, so my goal is to put together a good mobile system to suit my varied musical tastes. This will be my first meet so I'm looking forward to looking, learning and trying out as much as possible. Is a better day possible??

Technically, yes.  But you'd have to wait until October and fly out to Denver for that.  Short of that, this is where you want to be.  Definitely try out the UERM, and account for some time to play with the UEPRM's magic-sound-tuning-box-with-the-knobs-thing-a-ma-jig they've got.

Thanks, can't wait until October. Now I need to look at UE's web site and the check out the "thing-a-ma-jig".

Hehe, its a cool little tuning box. I, personally, do not like it though. Hifiguy528 and I talked about it at the Bay Area meet, we both agreed we would never be able to come to a conclusion for a tuned sound, and would rather have the pro's at UE do it:tongue:. We're an indecisive bunch;)

Yeah, I wouldn't wait that long.  That's probably many thousands of miles for you sans a portable rig.

Basically, it allows you to tune a UEPRM (Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitor) exactly the way you like it, so that it's customized for you in terms of fit and sound signature.
