For complete remolding? I guess he charges the half of the original product right? That was kinda sad for me, I have been looking for alternatives honestly but yeah SE5way is a different beast to work with compared to the regular ciems.

Btw, what caused problem with your fit? I thought you were all good?
I wore braces for a year and now they are off. They changed the position of my jaws and thus my canals.

Oh ok then I got it. Glad that you could be healthy enough live without them now

There comes a time in every SE-5-owner's life when he/she pauses, and suddenly it dawns on him/her that SE-5s are "really rather expensive"
 
For some, this moment occurs when their next bank statement arrives through their letterbox, after they ordered their SE-5s.
 
For others, the moment does not occur until maybe several months or years later, when something unforeseen happens... and a re-shell becomes necessary.
 
 
Either way, it's painful and I sympathise!

 
It dawned on me when I got the email from Grzegorz that he received my impressions and they'll fit in my ears.

This's why I always love your posts Tom. A real treat indeed.

Thanks, great pics!
 
I particularly enjoyed how they blackened the name on the order form, only to present it in bold print on the case a few pics later.

Subscribed.  It's really nice to see a "VE/Rhines" thread , as I really like the sound of Stage 3 and Stage 4.  I find that they perform even better than other high-end, more famous and common CIEMs.
 
I have sent my Rhines Stage 4 back for an upgrade to Stage 5 - hopefully, I would be able to post some impressions later.
