Custom IEM fitment question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

So, I just got my custom IEMs and I was wondering if hearing your heart beat in your ears is a normal occurrence.  Or do I just need to brake them in or something or will I get used to it.  Also how the IEMs sit in my ear are different.  Here are some pics.  My left IEM sits inward to the right, where my right ear sits flush with my ear but sticks out a bit.  Is this fine or should I get it fixed.

My ear canals are also a bit different and the molds seat a bit differently.  Not a big deal.  It actually means the fit is working like it should.

 

Heartbeat would be normal with no music playing.  Sounds like they really got them snug.  If they seem comfy you should be good to go.

Well my ears are naturally oily so I really don't need lubricant.

A tip I found on the ultimate ears guide on youtube recommends pressing each monitor with your hands  (both at the same time) and opening and closing your mouth to equalise pressure.  No idea if that will help or not.

that is a good idea. i totally forgot about opening your mouth to slightly open up the ear canal.

 

as far as your ears being oily, that good if it helps.

Good old saliva is the best.  Very easy to use too. :)
