Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Appreciation Thread - Page 195

post #2911 of 2922

I had a little trouble too.  In fact I just found best fit with the rubber tips by going smaller.  I kept going larger with foam.  And with rubber even the largest wasn't sealing - till I figured out I needed to go smaller.  

 

I don't like having to squeeze the foam then hold in place while it expands - I liked the black foamies on my Shures in that regard.  But just fiddling around and found best fit so far by going several sizes smaller on the rubber tips.

 

Now sound is nice and warm.  better bass.  I guess I wasn't getting deep enough fit with too large tips for my ears.  I started with 12.5 and went up from there at first.  Then I tried the rubber - smaller than 12.5 - and wow.  This tips fits just right - reminds me of the Three Bears ; )

 

Give it a try.  Hope it works for you.

The fit is killing me though, I see now the 'default' way to wear is similar to how the TF10s had to be hacked by swapping left with right and vice versa. I've been wearing these for a couple of days (no more than an hour or two each time because my earlobe would start to ache) and every few minutes I keep trying to adjust and push them around in my ear to see if I could find a way to get them comfortable but to no avail. Anyone have any suggestions?
Are you wearing them down or over the ear? I wear mine with the wires going over my ears and the fit and comfort is perfect, especially after coming from the tf10's. No part of the earphones goes anywhere near the earlobe in this configuration.

Yape I agree, I used the comply form but now using the silicone rubber tips.

Silicone rubber gives me better bass while form gives me better isolation.

HELP! When trying to separate the ear piece and the cord the whole shell BROKE and the wire connecting the drivers and the connection SPLIT. 

 

What do I do? Is this fixable under the warranty?

Doesn't sound like you have much choice.  Call or send to Logitech and hope they will cover.  The 900s came with pretty explicit instructions about removing the wires...

If you severed wires, don't do this.  It'll void your warranty for sure.

So it looks like other people have had the exact same thing happen to them.

Guess all the reviews I read about shoddy build quality were right.

I just received a brand new pair of 900s from Logitech. No sign of maintenance gel though, and the packaging still says 2 year warranty...  Anyway, off with the tips, off with the cable, on with the FiiO cable, on with the medium Comply TSX200s, on with La Vie En Rose (Grace Jones), and I'm happy again.   I hope this pair lasts longer than the first pair...

I've had mine for little over 8 months which are now quieter in the right channel sound tinny and cheap. I've been through 7 or 8 sets of Ultimate Ears some lasting just days others weeks and the longest 7 and 8 months but always end up quieter in one channel and loses its fullness. Every set has permanently lived on my desktop which after every use I drape them over my screen monitor or place them by its side. I never wear them to bed or to commute to work nor when I'm exercising or anything like that just at my desktop which I keep them plugged in permanently into my Logitech Z906 control dock.

 

My Logitech control dock volume is set between 40 to 50%, computer volume 75%, media player volume 75% which media and computer volume never exceeds 75% I adjust volume at Logitech control dock if I want louder but is there anyway to repair or fix these as Logitech said when I was given them that they would only refund the original amount prior to owning UE I use to use cheap £10 Phillips She Model which I had two sets last aprox 3 years each.. I have tried the other cable but it makes no difference which is real shame as I thought that was problem I was having with UE350 & UE400 model

 

I started out with UE 350 (Lasted 3 weeks), UE 400vi (Lasted 7 weeks) UE 400vi (Lasted 7 months), UE 600 (Voided & transferred the warranty to 400) UE 600 (Unwanted returned to Amazon unused) UE 400 (Lasted 4 days) UE 400 (Lasted 2 days) UE 900 (Lasted 8 months).

 

My UE 600 still work but I really dislike the sound due to 3D sound, they're great for speech but really sucky for music due to no bass

I really can't understand how you've got through so many ear buds in such a short time. The only ear buds I've owned and broken in the last five years were the apple in ears which developed a fault with the remote after 100's of hours in the gym (moisture had damaged the unit) Either you're the most unlucky person alive or, if you are as careful as you describe with them, someone else is borrowing them and treating them badly. I have 2 pairs of UE Triple Fi 10's, UE900's, UE4000 and UE6000 and have no problems to date with any of them. I've always found the build quality of UE products very good with the exception of the 900's which look a bit shoddy. But as I said they've not given me any bother up until now (touch wood!!)
