I’ve had my Jabra Pro’s with the M&RIE (custom ear molds) since August. I had to have the Right ear mold remade from new impressions due to feedback. I got the new mold a few weeks ago. It got recalibrated and the chart showed MUCH better calibration than before! I was excited.
But then like a curious idiot, I asked the audi to show me how the receiver gets adjusted in the silicon ear mold (I had acrylic before). She showed me and the M&RIE moved slightly. And wouldn’t you know it…feedback occurred. After much adjustment of the M&RIE, we got close to those initial calibrations. What did we learn? That any movement of the M&RIE in the ear mold can throw the calibrations out of wack and feedback will occur more frequently.
We were shocked!! The audio hasn’t had too many people with the M&RIE so I’m one of the guinea pigs (not that I mind, I’m able to describe things to her and I like to try this and that). Seriously, Resound?! I can’t believe that the slight movement can make that big of a difference. Some people wouldn’t notice it, but I do. And to top it off, I asked her to cut the piece that you’re supposed to use to pull it out of your ear. It was bothering me when I talked on the phone. Of course this was BEFORE we realized the movement of the M&RIE can effect the sound.
Fast forward to now…I have additional noise on my left side. Probably due to the M&RIE moving when I use the channel lock to pull it out. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the sound that’s from the MIc in my ear but really, I can’t be calibrating it all of the time!
