To be fair, they did say that making them on-site would result in slightly stiffer product, and the softer molds would be better but would take a couple of weeks. I took the on-the-spot, cheaper option and was never happy with them. They would often become leaky during a ride, not all that comfortable, and are quite stiff and hard to insert and remove. Others here on this forum have said to wear the helmet while the mold is curing, which I didn't.

So, given that my experience may be a get-what-you-paid-for outcome, can anyone confirm that the better molds are relatively soft, and tend to seal even over a range of temps - from cold to hot and humid?
They're not the same company, but look like a distributor for them.

If you're wanting to order from these people and not the link I posted, here's the link to the monitors I have.

They're soft and very comfortable. Took about two to three weeks to be delivered.

And in order to remember which one goes in what ear more quickly. I ordered each earpiece in a different color.

Red for Right and black for left.
