My shell mysteriously cracked and shattered yesterday. I got into contact with um right away. I am 100% careful with my electronics...especially my $1000 plus Iems...I hope this is taken care of. Maybe it was a 3d printing error? I am disappointed at the moment but will keep you posted on how the situation unfolds. I should be covered under warranty as this seems to be a defect. Hopefully UM can make this situation a right one.
If you have surgical skills like me with crazy glue, anything is fixable. You don't know how many iems I've not only managed to repair, but also stabilize and prevent future incidents with super glue skills.
I have to say...overall I feel the same way about the Roxanne and 846 comparison you wrote! Although ever since receiving the Rox, the 846 (and the UM Mentor) has gotten near 0% usage...ehh, almost makes me want to sell the others.
I agree with your mini review.. they do sound great and clear. I wish they had a smudge more bass quantity, but it is tight as it stands. These also do respond VERY well to eq according to other users. I'll still hold it with care in my collection as it is a nice piece and still offers a different sound signature as do all my other IEMS, headphones. Enjoy!
I should actually revise my prior statement. I prefer it to all my IEMs at the moment. The Mentor, 846, ASG2, IE80...as well as my full-sized collection...also as well as everything else I've used in the past 3 years. I'm at a happy point in my headphone life.
They are great. I was talking about the universal version though. YMMV on customs vs universals. Universal cost about 300-400 less than the custom. Both are great. It's getting great reviews overall, minus the drama from last year's black friday fiasco.
