    Do you wipe them down with laquer first. You may try this and also may need to be trimmed a little. If they are too big, they will cause drumming. Also use a good adhesive. You'll get a million responses on the adhesive, but I personally use Buckeye Supreme and don't have any problems.

    also make sure they are not too large
    I always have to trim the egdes. a tad small is better than too big
    use the removed cartlige as a pattern

    thanks that will help sometimes i think that the hole for the ear canal in the ear liner is to small and the cartilage will not go though to fit
  6. I've had this problem until this winter. My trouble was I wasn't opening all those cartilage vanes that run up the center of the ear, make sure you start all the way down from the inter ear and work your way up. I wasn't opening up the base of the ear enough. When you test fit, feel where the long hair is at the V part of the ear you should feel the liner not any excess skin.
    Hope this helps

    The most important thing you can do is make sure the liner fits. I think that is the biggest problem people are having. It makes me wonder if people really know what that means. You should have some excess skin on the inside of the liner, that will help tremendously.

    mj, are you using earliners with the cartilage still in the ear? you can take a dremel tool and make the hole larger. that will make it the canal fit easier.
