I can't offer any advice on the VASS system, but I am very interested in
learning about it in daily use. I suffer from volume changes, and I think
it would be great to have a socket that compensates for it.
What is the socket like - is it like a TEC liner, or something completely
different? I believe it's a fairly new system, so I'd be surprised if
anyone could comment on its long-term use.
please keep us informed.
