I'm not sure, but it could be dropped or kinked with a sharp object. I mean, it doesn't look possible if it just lies there though. 

 

If the hole is there when you first got it, then it's a different story.

It shouldn't be caused by a drop as the hole is located in the concha region which is a concave. I've always handled my merlin with care, so it shouldn't be caused by a fall from height, much less kinked by a sharp object in that awkward location. Even if the damage is resulted from a fall from height, the shell should be cracked, and not have a hole in it so the only reason for the shell to have this kind of damage is either the acrylic is too thin or there is some serious problem with the build quality of UM @Stephen Guo

Yup! Absolutely thrilled with them.

I absolutely love the carbon fibre, it looks awesome. I almost went for that exact design when I went for my Miracles. 

post #3862 of 3880

wow that's really pretty. Btw, right now, how long it takes for um to complete a reshell?

post #3863 of 3880

From post office (sending away) to the postman dropping it off, it took one month exactly for my re-shell. I'm in Australia.

 

RE: Carbon Fiber, I was really on the fence about it, it's actually REALLY hard to design an IEM. I was getting all anxious trying to decide.

 

I figured that "wood" didn't really suit the Merlins sound (from what I read on reviews, at least). It needed something..

 

Else? CARBON FIBER!

 

The photos don't do it justice, but it turned out well!

 

Big fan of the Merlin. Have to wait for the "honeymoon" period to finish, so I can analyse them properly ;)

Of course you can!

 

This is what it looked like in the shell designer:

Thanks!! Are there any colored carbon fibre options?
post #3867 of 3880

Sorry for photo spam, but I've fallen in love with the glossy carbon fiber:

Received my reshelled Merlin's today. Fits perfectly and build quality is top notch.

i've been getting feedback that UM shells are quite thinly made - has this been addressed? (if this is indeed true)
