Big thanks to moedawg140 and JackKontney for the great review and the information. I met with Gold Circle audiologist Dr. Gayle Santucci here in St Louis, MO for impressions and a hearing test. Sleeves have been ordered and I am confident I’ll be getting exactly what I wanted and needed.
My meeting with Dr. Santucci also revealed a hearing deficient in my left ear. The test results lead to a much appreciated lesson in hearing conservation.
I just wanted to post back that the help and information given was of great benefit and much appreciated.
Happy to help, Jason. I visited St. Louis and surrounding areas for a week for my birthday around this time last year, and it's a great area. I stayed at my friend's very nice home in Wildwood and went to the gym Life Time Fitness in Ellisville during my stay. I really liked their outside water park with water slides as I haven't been on a water slide in probably 15 years before going to the gym there. Also drove to Mizzou in Columbia, and that was a cool college town as well. I was actually going to wrestle at Lindenwood University in St. Charles (not far from St. Louis), but I just wanted to help out my family and stay closer to home in California, so that's what I did.
Great job regarding getting services done by a Gold Circle audiologist. Hopefully the custom sleeves will aid in your hearing conservation as you won't need to turn up the volume anymore as a result of the increased isolation you will experience with them deep into your ear canals.
It would be great to read your impressions once you receive the custom sleeves. What color(s) did you end up choosing?
