- My earpiece falls out when I move.
- My ear itches after a while.
- How do I get a molded earpiece made.
If this does occur it is easy to fix. It is a simple case of trimming the tube to length using a decent pair of scissors. First remove the eartip. Next pull out the right angled joiner that the tip was fitted over from the acoustic tube. It might resist as the tube has expanded to accept the joiner but it is possible.

Before using the scissors remove the acoustic tube from over your ear.

Push the right angle joiner back into the acoustic tube and fit the eartip.
Did you know if you swing the right angle joiner 180 degrees in the opposite direction you can use your earpiece as a Left or Right side earpiece.
Finally the clip should be attached to you collar at the position on you collar so that when you turn your head to the opposite side it the coil expands without pulling your earlobe down and when you turn to the same side it does not pile out onto your shoulder (in TV world it stays out of shot).
You may need to adjust the length of the tube from the end of the coil to the collar clip.

Finally if your earpiece still falls out it is time to consider either a semi custom earpiece insert such as a Skeleton eartip or a custom molded earpiece - more on these items to follow on our blog.
