    You can get them in the US too - it's just we're UK based so we tend to go with that in the copy of reviews.

    My ears are kind of one size fits all. Any earphone works as long as they are not super horrible cheap stuff But if this blocks out foreign noises, the better it is for me.

    I don't think I could actually get these, the idea of someone squirting silicone in my ear freaks me the hell out.

    No, still don't like in-ear earphones. Not even custom made ones.

    they sound like an awesome product, do they keep your custom molding incase you need to order up some replacement tips?

    I have recently been do alot of silicon and PU molding, might try it in a DIY method, as you can get skin safe silicone. hmmmmmmmmmm, got me thinking now!

    As far as I know, they're kept on the system and, from what I understand, they're a not far away from being able to take impressions without the silicone.. maybe a year or so.

    why is there only 1 paragraph devoted to how these actually sound? surely the most important bit has been almost entirely forgotten about???

    They sound as good as the original hF2s, which we covered extensively in the iPhone headphone roundup linked on the first page. The difference is that these block out more noise and are many times more comfortable.

    The map here is what I was referring to. I mean, I'm sure I can find someone to do it either way, but now I have to do the work:waah:

    According to their website
    By the sounds of things they have the tips for ER6is too, I just can't find whether they will sell me some without some more earphones.

    The technology's not exactly new. It's exactly the same process I go through to get new moulds for my hearing aids.
