Crave the custom fit you get with a pair of custom-made in-hear headphones, but blanche at the $1K price tag attached to something like JH Audio’s incredible JH|13 ? The new Sonomax Sculpted Eers promise to deliver a true custom fit at a fraction of the price.
Don Sonomax’s new SonoFit Custom Fitting System at a participating retailer and it will produce a set of silicon ear tips molded to the interior of your ear canal in just four minutes. Manufacturing custom ear buds in the traditional way requires a trip to an audiologist for a custom mold that’s sent to the manufacturer, and a week or two wait for your buds to be fabricated.
Sonomax will be offering two retail products: the PCS-100 is a single-driver model that will sell for $200, and the PCS-200 is a dual-driver model that will sell for $300. Sonomax hasn’t announced any retail partners yet, so don’t run out looking for these today, but the technology certainly looks promising. Look for our hands-on review soon.
