Here's the deal. I use a Jawbone Icon. It sits inside my ear - no outer ear clip. After an hour or so, it becomes noticeably uncomfortable. So I thought, maybe I can combine the Radians molded material with the headset, to make a comfortable, custom fit. Bingo!
I took the headset, and attached the smallest of the rubberized covers and adjusted it to fit my ear. I then mixed up half of each of the Radians materials, stuck it in my ear (just as if I was making an ear plug), then pressed the Jawbone gadget into the plug, gently molding the material around the business end of the headset, making sure to completely cover the rubberized cover. I let the material cure for 10 minutes, then removed the whole thing from my ear. After another hour of letting it cure, I used an electric drill/bit to drill about a 1/4" hole from the outside, down where the material went down into the ear canal. After a little judicious trimming with an Xacto knife, I was done. I poped the Jawbone icon back into the molded piece, and...Presto! I had a Bluetooth headset, custom-fitted to my ear.
How does it work? Perfectly. I mean, it's every bit as good a seal (if not better) as what you get on an expensive set of noise-blocking earbuds. Waaaaay cool.
So if you're dissatisfied with the fit of your Bluetooth headset, this is the stuff to buy to fix that problem, once and for all.
After a lot of research online I settled on these. I was a little concerned with the negative reviews but felt the positive ones outweighed the numbers and of course if it did not work as advertised I could return the remaining product.
Well I did not have to be concerned because it worked just like it says it will. I followed the instructions and the plugs came out perfect.
Actually, I changed one part of the instructions in that I used what they recommended for one plug (half the material in a package) to create a set of earplugs - there was more than enough material.
So for the cost of material for one set of ear plugs I was able to get two sets of ear plugs. Pretty good deal if you ask me.
Interesting note: As the material starts to cure it makes a type of crackling noise which you hear quite easily. I was a bit unsure of it initially but just allowed the curing to continue without any issues.
I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a custom option for hearing protection.
However... I decided to take these to the next level for an entirely unintended purpose and I am even more impressed now. After using the first pair to make my custom fit ear plugs, I picked up another set and used those to make a set of superb custom fit headphones for myself. I own a Plantronics BackBeat 903+ Headset and have never been satisfied with the fit. I have small ear canals and the headphones were very awkward fitting and uncomfortable, letting tons of outside noise in. So, I slapped the molding material into my ears, and then pressed the headphones right in. Once cured, but before totally hardened (about 20 minutes) I trimmed the tip that protrudes into the ear canal, and used a Dremel tool to hollow out the inside and round the cut edges. Needless to say, I now own an absolutely fantastic pair of custom fit bluetooth headphones that I can wear comfortably all day long. It's a bit of a project and I was worried that I might screw the whole thing up, but with a little patience, anyone that can wield a Dremel tool can do this too. I was so impressed with how well it turned out, I am ordering several more pairs to convert my other bluetooth headsets and a pair of backup earbuds. I posted some pictures in the product gallery so that you can see how nice they look.
I highly recommend this product as both earplugs or for your own custom project.
My first attempt with making custom earplugs with Radians Custom Molded Earplugs did not turn out so well. I followed the directions sheet (clean hands, clean ears, dividing in half, mixing 45 seconds, etc.) but the material did not set up. It was still gooey 24 hours later when I returned it to the store. After reading numerous accounts from other users I guessed it likely the two parts were not mixed as completely as I'd thought and decided to give it another try. I could not read the date inside the first package.
I bought a second package at the same store as the first, changing color choice just in case the first had been a bad batch or old or something. The date in the second package was from eight months earlier - I am assuming this is a manufacture date, not expiration. This time, I mixed all of both parts together at once to eliminate the possibility of not getting equal parts of both halves and mixed them pretty aggressively for about 3 1/2 minutes. The consistency had started to change at about 2 1/2 minutes and in hindsight this is probably about the point I should have stuck it in my ears (I think it's more of a feel to the mixed product than a set time as different people will mix differently - it seemed to become less shiny at about 2 1/2 minutes for me and I think that's an indication it's mixed and ready).Read more ›

I use these to make custom molded earbuds. Just mold this around your earbud in your ear and you will have a great fit. Take any padding off the earbud first, of course. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Renee Marshall Brown
