So I was just quoted 15 weeks turnaround time to get some UM Merlins reshelled.

Does this sound about right?

Almost 4 months.

So I seemed to have lost all bass response when I got my remolds back. It was just a reshell of my Shure 530 +6 or whatever. The only possibility I see is that my headphone cable now has a slightly different plug then the UM receptacle. The UM has a hump and the cable is smooth rectangle. Anyone else experience this?

Faulty drivers/crossover? When you say "Lost all bass response" makes me instantly wonder about your seal. Does the bass improve when you wiggle/prod them?

 

Is the bass quiet, or literally not there?

Acustoms are terribly slow and do not respond to any emails after a while. Deal with Stephen instead.

There are times when the bass shows up as it used to, but most of the time it is very light and doesn't pack the punch that it used to.  The seal is pretty pretty good. :(

Had the similar problem, dampers were failing. a pro told me to stick a needle inside and poke on the dampers to make things move a bit.....and jesus....it worked!

Well if Jesus would do it...maybe I'll give it a shot later ;).  I am just really aggravated and the whole reshelling process took so long that I am not going to send them back again to wait another 4 months hah.

If you're in Europe try lime ears for re shell

Got my TF10x6

 

definitely a good step up from the TF10, the sound stage is what hit me first, it was wider than stock. The mids are so much more intimate and detailed, Bass is more Dynamic. Well worth the $$.. I'm using an Oyaide Cable with mine.

So I hear that if I go direct to UM global, the wait time might be less - can anyone confirm?

 

I've emailed them to check wait times - I'll report back and let you all know.

About 4 weeks after we receive your package.
