Ultimate Ears - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I don't know about warranty starting all over again, but atleast w/the companies I've dealt with, only the remainder of the original warranty period should carry onto the replacements.

i.e. if you originally had a 2yr warranty and they broke after 1.5 yrs, the replacements will only have .5yr left (not 2)... so if those broke 1yr later, they'd be out of warranty

Shure gives their replacements a full 2 year warranty... which is good, because with the way their cables fail you're going to need it. No idea about UE.

that's awesome, sounds like you can potentially just buy once and have Shure's for life if they conveniently break towards the end of every 2 years XD

Apparently there are sound changes, not to the sound signature but to the drivers. This is what sparked the initial debate. Someone, possibly HeadphoneAddict (just a vague jab back in my memory, it was someone reputable for sure) mentioned that the highs were more forward and harsher, just from what I remember.

Oh wow really? I read somewhere that someone differentiate between them; but that sucks; I wonder how drastic the changes were.

Can you provide a source to back up this statement or at least a link to the post that makes this claim?

Yeah. Going from memory is not a good approach. From the way it sounds he once owned it, sold it, tried a bunch of other earphones, and then went back to it. It will sound very different after the new set of experiences with a bunch of other earphones.

I very highly doubt the internals were ever changed. Frankly, that's how you ruin a company and Logitech isn't that dumb to destroy the UE brand image over some loose change. Frankly, Triple.Fi sales represent such a tiny fraction of Logitech's profit, there's no point. The cable change came with the new packaging. It probably was done as a fix for the complaints they had with the old cables being too stiff. You fix one thing, and people will whine about something else. Now it apparently makes it feel cheap. Ok. Apparently not to feel cheap it has to be stiff or bulky like it was or like Shure's SE530 or Eytomtic's ER4S, lol. I don't want that at all. I'll happily take the "cheap" ones.

logitech has been fine for me. Their customer service is outstanding. My logitech mx518 mouse broke a couple of years ago and all I had to do was tell them the serial number and they automatically shipped a new one. No questions asked. Also I have the UE 10s and I've had them for over 3 years now and they're fine and in all honesty they're quite durable.

Your UE10s would be from well before Logitech's takeover, so you're probably better off than some newer owners.

I could find the thread where I found the statement about the changes, but honestly from what I remember, the changes aren't enough to really worry about. If you're anal about it, you can find some pre Amazon TF10s, but I'm sure the majority would be happy with any TF10.

I wouldn't have a doubt in the slightest that Logitech would do something stupid and hurt the UE name. Lowering the warranty and putting in their own crap CS is enough to prove that IMO. Look at Harmony and how it went down the drain after the takeover.
