EAR IMPRESSION GUIDELINES
ALL OF OUR HANDCRAFTED CUSTOM IN-EAR MONITORS REQUIRE A FULL SHELL IMPRESSION. THIS REQUIRES THE ASSISTANCE OF A PROFESSIONAL AUDIOLOGIST. BE SURE TO PRINT THIS IMPRESSION GUIDE AND GIVE TO THE AUDIOLOGIST DURING YOUR VISIT.
The impressions should display the full contour of both the outer ear and the ear canal, to a sufficient depth. The photos on the left are a perfect example of an excellent ear impression as provided byTheHeadphoneList.com.
Each ear impression must include the full helix, crus of the helix, tragus and antitragus.
IMPORTANT: The impression must be taken just past the second bend of the ear canal.
The material utilized to shoot the impression must be made of high-viscosity silicone.
The impression must be taken with the client’s mouth open. We recommend that a 1-2” bite block is used. Utilizing this method will reduce movement and will result in a more secure fitment as well as an optimum seal for maximum performance from your Empire custom in-ear monitors.
If you have any questions at all or are unsure if your impressions meet the requirements please send detailed photos to our support team at Support@EmpireEars.com
