Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Appreciation Thread - Page 195

post #2911 of 2920

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...
