UM Global Deal - The lucky 25 (All slots filled so please stop PM'n me to join) - Page 70

post #1036 of 1228

This is awful PR for them and they've been pretty quiet on the issue.

 

I wonder what percentage of their customers visit head-fi.

Don't mind me but i do have my doubts. When i asked UM Global a month ago, they also said it would be shipping 'soon'.

 

However, we can only cross our fingers and sit tight. I really really hope it really happens this time!

Well I really hope that they'll keep their word this time because they told me my Miracle would ship with the goodies!

I just got home from work to find something lying on my doormat, unannounced:

Better late than never, folks!!

Is that a Beat Audio cable? The right and left connectors look like one.

Edit: I can see a AmpCity strain relief on the viablue connectors right?

All I can tell you is it's branded 'Ampcity', and the cable is finely-braided silver (well, I'm assuming it's silver!). Yes, the connector is 'Viablue'. IEM connectors have an aluminium housing, plastic inner chassis, and gold-plated pins.

 

No 'BeatAudio' branding anywhere to be seen. No receipt, shipping docket, or documentation provided.

Interesting. How is the flexibility?

Less than a standard Westone cable, but then that's to be expected, since this is a thicker braided wire, rather than a simple skinny 'twisted-pair'. In spite of this, I'd say the flexibility is very respectable, and the sheath is a nice quality plastic.

 

Overall, it looks like a very decent quality, and nicely-made, product.

 

You're going to ask me about sound, but my Miracles are off for a rebuild very soon, and are packaged ready to post, so I can't comment on sound (yes, it is rather ironic timing, I know!)

Haha, no I wasn't going there. Flexibility and build quality were the 2 things I wanted to know. Thanks for the update.

Were you one of the people that requested for a change in the cables? 

post #1049 of 1228

Nope, I waited silently and patiently and this is what arrived.

To be frank, from the pics, i would prefer the fortis v1, hand braided looks much better.
