    .. and when using over-ear Hifi headphones it sound terrific. With my BTE RITEs I easily get feedback of course.

    It was mentioned here that new HA's should be priced as an entry level to attract new customer. Well, another way to look at it is why buy some mediocre HA when there's somthing better available. Too many HA's are stored away in a drawer because of disappointed first time users. In my opinion my hearing is so important for my quality of life that price is irrelevant. But that's me.

And the trick with Silk is the removable silicon sleeve in different sizes and shapes. The unit itself is very small. Contrary to what you say they sit surprisingly well in conventional canals (like mine) with the right dome size. But of course, if you have very narrow canals there might be problems with these also. I heard from my audi in Norway they trippled the CIC sale with the Silk.
    Ha, that's great - Marketing Channels not ear canals ;-)

    ^^^ This discussion just made me think that it would be smart for the Mfg to program the demo units to allow testers to try out all levels. Maybe one program for level 1, another for level 2, another for level 3. That will let the tester decide whether they want the most premium level or whether the least premium level is good enough for them based on their everyday listening environment.

    Of course how smart this is depends on how much crippling they do to their software. If they don't cripple it enough then most people would be prone to just choose the least premium level.

    MY adjustment was yesterday; the remote adjustment went very well. I think I will be keeping these.
