HJE900 bud dies.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

My HJE900 are unfortunately out of warranty and one of the earbuds just died on me. The quality sounds fine but the sound is very quiet. Does anyone know of a fix? Or should I start shopping for a new pair?

Are you sure it's not the cable? Have you tried awitching the  bud to the other cable to see what happens?

I had heard a few comments like this before.  Hoped it wasn't true about being pretty on the outside and ugly on the inside.

Well they sounded great for about 7 months. Shame the warranty lasted only 6 months .

I bought mine in the States, and just had a look at the warranty card and it's only 90 days.   As someone who lives in the EU I'm used to the two year warranty that we get on all electronic goods.

That is why I always prefer to shop from a place that offers warranty and service support and at least for a year, well and pay extra few bucks for thtat service. Some Earphones arent  just made well enough and  like anything else break down. Sorry about that.

Interesting, I guess they aren't built to last afterall...

 

Thanks for the info, I've been tempted by the JR deal for quite a while now, permanent V curve and not built to last do not rank them as the best sub-$100 purchase.

 

To be honest I just want to know what zirconia sounds like, I'd listen to them for a week and then sell them, Lol.

Interesting. I suppose time will tell exactly how well the hje900 are built. Still, to be fair, we should remember that a production run of a product, no matter how well designed, will always have a few lemons. It is possible that the op was just unlucky.

Uh oh.  It's kinda weird but I've been tempted to run these things over with my car and see what happens.  I figured I'd wait until the drivers die to do it.  It looks like I may get my chance sooner rather than later. I hope not, though.

Come on, do it before warranty ends, you might have a chance for a free replacement.  I ran over a ruby CZ heart shape pendant, not a scratch, CZ is hard. I'd guess the housing of the 900 will be ok, the drive inside.....

I'm not sure the warranty would cover intentionally running the iem over with a car.  I was sort of thinking the iem will fine but I'm not willing to take the risk in the event it gets crushed.  This is where I got the idea from.

Good news! Panasonic answered my email this morning asking if there was anything I could do to get them repaired. They said to mail them in and they will send me a refurbished pair
