    Besides storage, what were the differences between the 32 and 64GB versions? I haven't been keeping up, and I have no idea what features come standard with the devices.

    Yes. Yes. I can verify that the chart is exactly as you'd think, and will agree that it's quite accurate with regards to most everyone suspicions, barring certain expectations.

    What book are you reading right now?

        Put in a few chapters, pretty good so far. Although the large number of complicated South/Central American place and deity names is more than I can comprehend in a single caffeine-fueled sitting. You can read the first chapter free on the obverse website.  ...

    Might go the 30 days, because I don't want to blame the fit if it's not really the fit.   Looked at the BTG site, those cables don't look all that inexpensive compared to the normal westone ones.

    Don't know. When I press on the plastic, particularly the part near the where the wire exits, a clicking sound is made. (Tried both when worn and in hands) The sound also occurs if move my head quickly. The right piece's plastic doesn't do this most of the time.   If it's normal, I can live...

    Took a look, appears the same, and not overly loose. At least not where the wire exits the plastic.

    Nope, just the one that came with the CIEMs. I bent the plastic straight, and it's still only the left that makes the noise (repeatable). It's irritating, and I was just wondering if it's common with westone cables, else I'm gonna lose sleep.

    So I've been hearing this cracking noise in my left CIEM when I move my head, and I just noticed that the noise is coming from the plastic covering the cable. I can recreate the sound by pressing on it, the right hook doesn't suffer from this. Anyone have this issue?

    How do I test for channel imbalance? I swear the right side is louder/clearer, specifically vocals. I know it could just be how the music was recorded, but I've tried different headphones and sources, the C4 is affected the most pronounced. (Could be it's revealing character as well) I've read...

    I do hear noise when switching tracks, and sporadically during playback. Sounds like the drive or whatever devil magic holds the content.

    My audiologist probably won't charge me for impressions, so I'm guessing up to $100ish to ship there and back. I think I'm beginning to adapt to the fit, it gets better and worse each time I put them on. The C4s are less noticeable in my ears than the Triple.Fi 10s, but the latter feels more...

    Eve, I don't actually have any notable issues with the sound. (Well the right is bit clearer, but all my headphones/sources do that, so common denominator...) I apologize if I came off that way. I'm crazy regardless, we all know that.   I also planned for a potential refit, using the cash...

    I'm just trying to get a handle on whether it's my elevated paranoia or that the fit is actually off. I'm thinking a bit of both right now.

    Sounds like it'll cost me upwards of $100 (including DHL return shipping). Really hoping my ears adapt to the fit, others have stated their initial week or so was pretty uncomfortable.   I do quite enjoy the sound though, no real qualms there.

    Thanks for the link.   So, after listening for numerous hours over 2-3 days, the fit gets better, but there are certain sticking points that I'm unsure will go away. The right piece has a pronounced hook (compared to the left) that goes into the top of my ear, and I believe it's the source...

    I keep numerous nickel sacks at hand for the inevitable zombie uprising. I'm hoping that I get used to it enough to not need a refit.   I did see a prominent (hairline?) scratch on the face of the right ear piece. I know such things are expected, and I can never know when or how it occurred...

    Yeah, I suspect they are legit loose. I'll give it a few days, then if one/both sides still feels off, I'll get an impression of the right ear done (already have a left) and send them in. At worse, I'll be out a handful of dead Jeffersons and the same fit as now. Better than wondering "what if".

    Audiologist says I can bring them in tomorrow, awesome. Maybe I'm overly paranoid and my ears are just crap shape-wise. The C4s sound-wise, seem to meet my expectations.  Bowie's "Space Oddity" and Gin Blossoms' "Til I Hear it From You" were great.

    DHL called back, I apologized, CSR was in a hurry to hang up seeing as sounded like a lunatic.   The left ear piece seems too small overall. Can't say for sure, I've shot David an e-mail, and am considering calling my audiologist to see if the fit is correct. I'd need new impressions anyways.

    Sound-wise, I like them. Davie Bowie sounds very good, Taylor Swift not so much (though that's probably not a fault with the headphones....). Fit... I don't know.  The left ear piece loosens easily in the upper half, if I slightly tug on the cable protruding from it. Both ears have different...

    Ran outside, looked at the front and back doors, the porch, mailboxes, etc. It was said to have been delivered 30~ minutes ago. I called DHL, and they said they'd get back to me, and it's possible the driver left it somewhere inconspicuous or just marked it as delivered when it wasn't. I'm more...

    So DHL delivered my C4s... supposedly, and I apparently signed for it. Which never happened. I saw the DHL vehicle just as it was leaving, ran around my building to see if it was left somewhere, and to no avail. The tracking updated with "Delivered- Signed for by *****". Gonna go look around...
