Unique Melody Remold Appreciation and Impressions Thread - Page 248

post #3706 of 3878

From late March to late July was my waiting period for my reshelled UM3X's.

 

I got them and have been using them for the past week.

 

Fit is great

 

Sound is improved by a small but significant amount, especially in bass impact (better seal)m and a tiny bit more clarity (better seal), but the overall character is still the same.

 

Unfortunately, they did not put their logo on the outside, which i asked for in my order sheet, and so they look like just generic custom iem's, and not as professional.  so i am disappointed in the visual result

 

also i colored my tips pink and lime green to differentiate them, but unfortunately the lime green came out a bit opque, making the entire set look fairly ugly, and even more amatuerish.  unfortunately this is a side effect of the website having an inaccurate virtual ordering form.

 

at least they imprinted my initials though.

 

overall i would say that i'm satisfied, but i would not order from them again, especially with the price hike. it was a 4 month wait for a set that is underwhelming, but still well performing.

 

and with the socket change, i think i should stock up on replacement cables fairly soon. sigh.

wow look good - sad to hear that after that 4 month wait they are under whelming.

 

i am still waiting from mine (since the start of april) - was told last week that i'll get em this week.

 

so still waiting, i pray they get the artwork and fit right - $600 ($300 for my westone 3's and another $300 for their bit) is a lot of money!~

Yowza. That bass slam is going to be pretty big. I hope you're preparing for that. I own a set of Westone 3, and a set of UM3X. I re-shelled my UM3X, and now the sub-bass and mid-bass has as much, if not slightly more, bass impact than the Westone 3.

BRACE YOURSELF

Were they received by UM Labs at the start of April? That's much higher than the 8-12 week estimate.

i dropped my moulds at the UM Office in Melbourne on 01/05.

Ah, that's just short of 12 weeks. I guess it's 3-7 more weeks for me :x.

Finally! Impressions of sound?

These are the Remoulded Westone 3's, right?

 

How is the fit? How much has the sound-signature changed?

So that makes 15 weeks. funko waited a similar amount of time too...I'm at 11 weeks since they received my impressions in Melbourne as of today. I emailed UM and got a reply on Friday saying "Your IEM's are due to be sent out to us in about 4 weeks from now". So I'm looking at around 15 or so weeks too. Hopefully it won't end up being any longer than that! Seriously hanging for mine! I'm getting my Westone 3's re shelled and upgraded to 6 drivers. I've read of one guy in this thread who's had that done and was stoked with the results so hoping for big things from mine when they come back! Meanwhile...waiting, waiting...

I've managed to work my way through a lot of these post's and am now looking forward to getting my TF10's reshelled.

Seems such a long turnaround time, but will be worth it I'm sure!!

Any idea how much it costs to reshell only one ear? I accidentally spoiled the Miracle's right ear by inserting blutak into its sound tube and it got stuck into the acoustic filter. Please don't ask me how I managed to do that, just thinking about it already gives me enough trauma.
