I think they got rid of the FR charts on the 1964 website. I'm not sure why. Perhaps a cached version would still work? It's actually been a while since I noticed them working.

Is that the printed carbon or the real one?

It's the real carbon fibre, its an additional USD 100 for both sides. I have done reshells with UM, G-Customs, and 1964 Ears. and i must say that 1964 Ears reshells are the best by far.

Awesome, great to hear. In enquired about their wood faceplate and they only have the light coloured one so looks like Carbon for me :D

So it looks like I'm going to get the Ds.

I was contemplating whether or not to have my UM2-RC reshelled or just get the house duals from 1964.

Now for the color... I'm thinking one trans black and the other trans wine. I was also thinking both trans black with wine tips... Decisions, decisions.

I have an appointment the Tues after next to get my impressions. The waits going to be tough.

Its meant to be that way, one side with the J from the top and the other side with the J from the bottom. Because if both are with the J from either the top or the bottom, one side would be spelling my name backwards.

I just got my quads back from UM and haven't had much time to use them because I'm going to send them back because of a socket issue. However, in the brief time I did listen with them, I found them to be fairly neutral except for the lows. They actually remind me a lot of my GR07s, but without the spike in the highs - I really didn't detect a big difference between the two, but that may change with further listening. My source was a J3 with with no amping and standard issue cables. I'm hoping UM can fix the socket w/o too much trouble. I have to commend them for the fit they acheived - pretty darn good!

After looking at the comments, I'm considering getting my TF10 reshelled.

post #3251 of 5134

A lot of people do that and add 3 drivers, making it the TF10x6 and I think UM is usually the company that people choose for this.

I wonder how the new drivers balance with the originals?

post #3253 of 5134

This is a response to a query made by a head-fier regarding a comparison between the UM Miracle and the TF10x6 upgrade:

 

 

"Whilst they are both six driver IEM's, with twin lows, twin mids and twin highs, they share many similarities as well as many differences.  

 

The things they do share is extension, control, accuracy.

 

Where they differ is soundstage, separation and presentation.

 

The TF10x6 is fantastic bang for buck, it is the absolute cheapest way to get into a six driver custom.  That being said, the Miracle still outclasses the TF10x6 if a neutral and smooth IEM with a large yet accurate/well presented custom is what you are after.  

 

There is a reason we designed the Miracle utilising different drivers to the TF10x6.  Yet there is also a reason we are developed the TF10x6 upgrade and are happy to put our name to it."

 

I hope this was helpful. You can send UM an email if this doesn't address your main concerns.

I'm in need of a mic for my phone but still want to use my quads. Do any of you know where I could find a westone cable with a mic? I looked into the EPICS MIC cable, but apparently the microphone on it lets in a lot of BG noise and is pure crap. Does anyone make custom cables with mics?

Yep I have been watching those "a lot of people" completely suffering from the awful customer service of UM. RingingEars, if you want to wait for your order for  several months and not know what's going on, go ahead send them to UM. They may be rectifying the situation lately but just reading the entire thread and fellow head-fi'ers experiences, I am quite content content with my Quads and still waiting on the 6 driver upgrade from 1964 Ears. The only other company I may consider is the Heir Audio and that's because the person behind knows what he's doing and great with customers.
