If you wanted to get a pair of custom earphones, you would have to start by getting a mold made. This is something you would need to have done by an Audiologist, because this is a specialized procedure and one that you wouldn't want to trust to the kid down at the local electronics store.

The process begins by inspecting your ear, to make sure there are no obstructions. Then a string with a stopper like end on it is put into the ear, followed by injecting silicone into and around the outside opening of the ear.

The silicone is allowed to dry (takes about 5-10 minutes) and then this mold is carefully removed from your ear. This mold is then sent to the Sleek Audio company where they put the final touches into your unique pair of earphones.
