New to HA’s, and having trouble adapting. Signia Pure 7px’s, about 3-4 weeks ago.
Going fairly well EXCEPT for the in-ear receivers. (Why do they call what is to the rest of the world a speaker a receiver?)
I first tried 12/10mm double domes not vented at all. Drove me nuts! Felt completely stuffed up, really bad own voice, and they itched till I couldn’t stand them. With enough determination, I could keep them in about 2 hours max at a time.
Next tried 6mm open. Way too small, but no problem wearing them long term. Comfortable, but spent all day pushing them back in due to too small.
Next tried 10mm open. Again, comfortable, sound good, but still spending all my time pushing them back into position.
I was advised by a friend who has had HA’s since childhood that customs are the only way to go for comfort. I believe she has open, customs?
I don’t have 12mm’s to try, but I suspect that they will just work their way out like the smaller ones, and be uncomfortable as well. I seem to have tapered ear canals, without much for the domes to grab on to.
I have my next apt with Audi Friday, and if customs are the better way to go, I’d like to get that done and not drag this experiment out any longer. Cost is not nearly as important to me as something I can wear!
Any advice appreciated!
