15% off ACS Custom Earphone Sleeves directly from Boots Hearing Care

This isn't my first deal, so please, paint me like one of your french girls.

Bit of a random one, but these aren't exactly sold in bulk by Tesco. This is for the audiophile crowd. Normally costs £89.99 online, but went to Boots directly and the guy said that they can sell them directly for £76.49.

If you're wondering what these are, they're custom moulded earphone sleeves for use with high end in-ear earphones (and the Monster Beats range). Due to the perfect airtight seal to your ears, they offer better sound quality, completely block out outside noise and, unlike the foam tips you get with most high-end earphones, won't wear out after a month.

I know this isn't going to go down well for those who would think that spending this much even on earphones is madness, but that's always the case with more expensive stuff on here. Please however keep in mind that this service was a three-digit-costing service before ACS came along, and the sleeves are actually made by hand - they don't just take the impression and shove it into a machine.

I have personally ordered them myself for a pair of Shure SE 535's. They booked an appointment for me and took silicone molds of the inside of my ear to post to ACS, who apparently have a turnaround time of a week.

I know this is relevant to few, but if it helps someone else out...

Wish I still had a pair of earphones that I could justify getting these for. It's not really worth it for the pfe 012 I bought yesterday!

You get heat for the comment.

I would like to pick your brains on this if I may. I have the same Shure's as you. Could you let me know if these improve them significantly? Also how comfortable you find them. Considering they are moulded to fit your ear, I am guessing pretty good! I find using the Shure's for a while can leave me a little tender, but using the smaller fittings doesn.t seal as well. Guess I have odd shaped ears :P

I'll pm you and/or update this thread if it's still active. I only got the moulds taken yesterday afternoon so I expect them to arrive next week sometime. The only ones I used were the foam ones as the plastic ones sounded crap and/or didn't fit right - so I'm eagerly waiting to see what these sound like. Built up a nice HD/lossless library on the laptop so i'll certainly be testing them out extensively

Sounds like you had a similar problem. awesome headphones, but poor fittings for the cost. Thanks for that, I look forward to finding out how you got on!

This isn't expired. Mine finally arrived and fit perfectly, and add significantly to the sound quality. Was pleasantly surprised to see that they came with a branded leather pouch as well.
