South East Asia. There's a local distributor over here but I wanna hear some opinions first.

$120.

The wait is seriously ridiculous...And to be honest, I don't understand why an influx of new orders or whatever would compromise the delay of customers who had already PAID and are waiting for their products. I'm not sure if this could be borderline false advertisement, since everyone who had opt to do reshelling with UM paid with the initially estimated delay in mind. To change the turnaround time, to me, is like changing the product description...

So how long is the turnaround time now?

post #3726 of 3880

8-12 weeks according to UM global.

post #3727 of 3880

When I placed my order, it was at 4-5 weeks. UM Global sales personally quoted 5-6 weeks, which I was fine with. A month without my IEM for work. But the rep later changed their estimated turnaround to 6-7 weeks as "UMLab is currently swamped with orders". And that was at the point when they finally received my TF10, and send me the invoice for payments. So I thought, a month and a half, I'll just have to compromise with 1-2 extra weeks more than I planned of borrowed headphones. But now we're all sitting at a ridiculous 8-12 weeks, and people in this thread personally waited months until they finally received either their reshells or freshly built IEM. I chose the service and submitted my payment expecting to get my reshells back in at most 6-7 weeks. If I had known that they would not stand on their words, UM would not even have received my business, and of course I wouldn't be sitting here extremely pissed off and having my work compromised.

Just a poor job of communicating IMO. The wait time doesn't jump from 4-6 weeks to 8-12 weeks overnight.

Is there any other reasonably priced cables out there besides the one UM sells that would fit the recessed sockets of the earpiece?

post #3730 of 3880
I purchased a sunrise cable and loved it! Now just waiting for my IEMs to come back from china frown.gif
post #3731 of 3880

Just wondering if you guys had any good recommendations for portable DAC/Amp units that will go well with my IEM's (W3x6 upgrade) when I get them back? I will be using my IEM's with an ipod touch, Samsung Galaxy S3 and an Asus Transformer Infinity Tablet.The V-Moda VAMP Verza has my attention, but I've read that it may not be ideal for use with IEM's? Does anyone have nay feedback on this and/or any other suggestions. The only other potential issue I see with the Verza unit is that the battery will only last 7hrs...which wouldn't even last my entire work day (12hrs).

The iPod will be perfect, as will the Galaxy S3. Maybe get a charging case for it, if battery life is a problem?

Battery life on my phone/iPod isn't the issue. I was referring to the battery life of the portable amp/DAC that I mentioned smily_headphones1.gif

Sorry, I should have emphasised my "IF" in that statement - using your phone as a DAP is asking for battery trouble.

I personally believe that iDevices will sound as good, if not better, than any of the very expensive portable DAPs on the market. Whilst it's not the most popular theory on these forums (apart from the sound-science subforum), I just thought I would give you my two cents. 

Anyway, sorry for the de-rail regular_smile%20.gif Maybe have a search around the forums on this topic, plenty of info about it! 

post #3735 of 3880

send earlier may.

well, i'm satisfied with the product but not the waiting time

fit is just ok.
