How does the mod affect the sound apart from reducing the bass and improving clarity. Does it affect the volume, soundstage, mids etc.

Now they said that they can't fix it, and nothing can be done. It is such a disgrace that they won't take any responsibility whatever. I paid around 500 dollars when it first came out and now they won't do anything? Even if it's the products fault? If the product can't be fixed, does anybody have an idea how to get heard about this issue? I hope no one will be as unfortunate as me. I'm thinking just to get heard if 500 dollars is the price of honesty from logitech's side I will let it go.
That's very bad news and doesn't sound like Logitech at all. I remember that the housing cracked often with the TF10 and Logitech always replaced it with a brand new pair.
I suggest to just open a new support request. The people there are not equally trained.
Well, reducing the bass does have a perceived lowered volume. The actual volume at 1k, however, should go up a little.
I'm going to return my pair as well. I get that static noise at higher volumes too.
Ever since I bought mine back in November (or October?) I haven't thought about a single other IEM. I have tried a few others like Heir 4.Ai and FA-3E after but they were definitely no improvement.
Comfort is good. I will avoid Customs as I fear the effect of sucking into the ear canal. My ears are sensible.
I am waiting for a price drop to buy a backup pair. My IEM journey is on halt.
For the second time i've come across a professional review that claims that these iems distort at high volumes:
That would echo a few complaints from a headfier that heard distortion on the pristine track Babylon Sisters (by Steely Dan).
Would you shed some light on this issue?
I tend to listen at low volumes but from time to time i crank it up and i've never got any distortion from my UM3x or my SE420s. Hence i won't fork out so much dough for a product that exhibits this kind of behaviour.
I listen to my IEM's pretty loud but I wouldn't be close to max volume and there's quite a few good IEM's that would distort at max volume, I mean that's crazy loud and small drivers just can't handle that. If I put my e-Q5 on max I don't know if it would distort but who would even listen to an IEM that loud.
a professional review...
Professional as in "we get paid for ads and review accordingly."
I don't have your track and I just went as loud as I could on a few other tracks FiiO E17 at volume 27. I even hit the EQ with bass +4. My UE900 sounds great, the bass is incredible punchy and clean. I've tried Electro from Noisa, Alex Gopher, Gingy and Crystal Method.
I am guessing it's a recording error (clipping).
