Do you "lube" your ciems?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've heard multiple places that you are suppose to put something on the canals of your CIEMs to aid with easy insertion and comfort, until a slim layer of wax is established to replace the need to do this....I have to ask, is this true? Are you suppose to "lube up" your CIEM's? If so, what do you use?

That sounds a bit personal, doesn't it? :wink_face: :veryevil:

PS - Seriously, that guide you linked to looks pretty informative.  I imagine there needs to be some type of lubrication necessary to make it easier to insert CIEMs...  Even universal eartips can be difficult without it.

tbh, I would hate the feeling of having my ciem's being greasy to the touch when handling them... I wipe them down after every use lol

Lube? Isn't that what ear wax is for?

I think the article states only the first couple of weeks, unless you clean the wAx off often
