    Bring lots of drool rags

    If your audiologist doesn't have a bite block, perhaps you should consider one who is more familiar with making impressions for vocalists/onstage performers rather than just hearing aids. Just sayin'.

    Brannan did my impressions at Axpona, and I made good use of the tissues he gave me.

    Fair point!

    Mine has never used a bite block. She does know that they are done for the making of CIEM's. She even compared my impressions to my TF10 to check length. I cant say for sure a bite block has been mandatory for me. She had me open my mouth wide, make a big smile etc etc.

    audiologists don't grow on trees and many people don't have access to a wide variety of choices. Just sayin.

    LA appears to have an audiologist tree (so to speak) as there are at least three of them located nearby that are known to do CIEMs. The below names are from the list of "rock star audiologists" (their words, not mine) by that other CIEM company who likes to name their units after famous women in songs.

    I'm sure Brannan has his picks from the LA area as well, but Noble doesn't publish a list the same way the other dudes do. 
     
    Cheers

    I wouldn't consider myself as reference material LOL. I'm sure the primary reason for my experience is due to Double Twist's poor compression engine. On that note, my ears can't tell the difference between 44/16 to higher res files except for analog to digital re-masters. My recent purchase of 88/24 Rolling Stones Hot Rocks is amazing!

    Highly recommend Frances if you are in the LA area.

    It was a general statement really, I don't see locations on the mobile version of head fi. I've seen people (may not have been in this thread) talking about the closest audiologist being an hour and a half away.

    I know, I was just giving Wata some options near where he lives in the LA area. I'm fortunate to live in Philly where there are also CIEM experienced audiologists, but clearly there are large parts of the country without them. Shows are actually a good place to get them taken, either with silicone or using the new scanning technology, although the shows themselves are most often in the same large cities that already have audiologists. Cheers

    I am in Orange County, plenty to choose from near me. One place close by wants $150 for a set. My girl in Irvine, is $50.

    When I had my first impressions done, the chap said unless you were a musician it would be best to take the impressions with a closed mouth and relaxed jaw, as most of the time you would be listening with your mouth closed so this provided the best fit, and I must say the fit was very, very good.
