I finally received the “upgraded” H8.2 after Fedex managed to screw up the delivery - adding an extra day to it. But one day is a long time when you have been waiting for 6 weeks. Won’t comment on the sound yet, as I need to spend some more time with them and need to adjust to them first - but it’s looking like a “long term relationship”. I think the gif that Kerouac posted a few posts back really is the best way to describe them. Isolation and fit is better than my old CustomArt CIEMs - I guess it really paid off getting a new set of impressions done. I can visually clearly see a difference. The canal-part on the new H8.2 are much wider near the 2nd bend than my old H8P giving much better isolation and tighter fit (almost too tight). The old ones broke the seal if I was moving my jaw around too much. New ones never break the seal no matter what I do and try, so really nice! Anyways - a few quick pictures: They are fairly standard (on purpose). Carbon plates, clear shells. The reason for the clear shells is so I can show people how complex they really are and I liked the carbon plates I had on my (now sold) Ei.xx.
