Quick check:
  • How many of you have a pair / pairs of CIEMs (and what are they)?
  • If you don't have a pair, what is stopping you from buying one (inconvenience, price, fitting procedure, sound quality, etc...)?

They lose out on the badassdom factor :)
These, on the other hand, don't:

I have a pair of JH-13Pro CIEMs (w/freq phase, but not v2). They sound amazing (clarity in particular) and have great isolation. However, most of my listening is at my desk at work, so I prefer to use full-sized headphones because they are more visible (so people can see that you are listening to headphones when they come to talk to you), and easier to put on / take off.

Price and fitting procedure ranks highly. Then there's the low resell value.

I bought a pair second hand, and then had a service re-shell them to my ears. Much more affordable that way!

I don't have a pair, price is about the only barrier as I've auditioned some and would definitely get a pair if I had the means.

Mainly cost. I don't have enough money.

Got a pair and they constantly need repair when all that teeny tiny wiring gets dislodged. I need a second pair as a backup for when the main ones are getting fixed, but it's a lot of dough for a quality set.

They ain't the greatest (Tunz brand from Starkey hearing aids). First it was detachable cables always falling out or losing connection at the ear piece. Got them remade with fixed cables. Now the fixed cables continually crap out, either inside the hard molded enclosure or at the plug.

It's a hearing aid company. They probably make great hearing aids, but they're new at making CIEMs. If you buy from any reputable CIEM manufacturer, I'm sure you'd be fine.

I would love a pair but what's stopping me from getting some is getting impressions done and having to get them shipped to the manufacturer for a mold, so technically living overseas is what's stopping me.
What are they?
