Very sorry, we got some feedback recently and found that the latest batch of RC-UE1 have quality problem, we just send notice to our sales agent to ask them recall any defective cable. and will post related notice on our office website tomorrow. 

 

Note it just happen to the latest batch which means it is ship in the past 30 days. and we will cover all the cost includes the shipping cost to send back.

 

 

The new RC-UE1 will use a copper ring to fix the cable inside the earphone connector .

Very sorry, we may need to recall all so you may need 1 month when we can purchase the new cable from Japan and make new batch of the cable.

I was thinking of buying the cable from B&H. Now that you saying your going tot recall cable and improve it think have to wait for the latest batch. I was wondering how the improve cable might look, can you post new pictures of RC-UE1 with copper ring.

 

I'm in a urgent need for it. I'm experiencing a withdrawal.

Life is sounding like the heart beat monitor flat line.

eferesan,

 

As someone who has the cable with the defect (and is in the process of returning it), my impression is that externally, there will be no difference in the cable. The copper ring will be internal to the bit that contains the plugs that connect to the IEM housing and will function to hold the cable shielding in place (which, in current models, slides off, exposing the copper wire underneath).

 

That said, the cable is really quite good... if you can get the IEMs to stay in your ears, as this cable is particularly heavy and lacks memory wire / ear guides (doesn't work for me).

Are you having any plans stocking this cable to mp4nation?

Any update on when this cable will come back in stock?
post #23 of 31

I bought this replacement cable for my TF10 from Miccastore back in January, and everything looked great when it arrived. I actually didn't start using it till about a month later, but I did notice the shielding problem that was mentioned earlier occurring not too long after I started using it.  I didn't really care at the time since it wasn't affecting sound quality or anything, but just recently, sound on both sides have started to go in and out intermittently, although I'm not sure if this was caused by the shielding problem. Since it's way past the 30 day exchange period from Miccastore, I was just wondering if anyone has had experience dealing with warranty services from FiiO? It seems like according to their website, the warranty period is 1 year from the date of purchase, but the instructions on claiming warranty weren't too clear.

I just bought the rc-ue1 from focalprice since I'm currently at hong kong, that's the only online retailer that ships to hong kong... Feiao would you know if their stock is bad or is it a new batch?
post #25 of 31

Checked with the Mica Store and they confirmed their current stock is new since the recall.

 

Got the RC-UE1 and put it on my Triple-Fi's (orig. UE's not Logitech's). I had previously reversed the buds for comfort, and chose to keep them reversed with the RC-UE1.

 

I do like the cable much better than the orig. even though it's weighs more.

 

Would rather not comment on the SQ being that it would be an unscientific observation but it sounds just fine.

Hey feiao, 

 

Any chance the cable will get a revision that has something to help the cables stay over the ears better? i'm waiting for a revision that has curved plastic sleeve or something to help it stay over the ears better (eg. null audio cable, hippo cables for UE). Right now, both fiio and oyaide UE cables lack this feature which is a deal breaker for me.

Any reviews after recall?
post #28 of 31
Really considering this for my SM64. Any updates?
post #29 of 31

Im considering this one as well for my TF10. Most concerned about durability. I have 3 stock cables go bad on me, including the newer style. Will this one last?

Just had one arrive. Bought from Amazon. Was DOA (touching the jack causes the audio to become mono). Not happy. Going back in the morning.
