Just burn it in a little and it should be fine.

I just got my ue900. however, it seems like to be a little muddy, especially on vocals. Will it be fixed after burn-in process? does any have the same problem?

I'm unsure if the drivers burn in, but the pinhole bore does get filled with time (unless you're the type that cleans your ears nightly). You can try covering up the pinhole bore to see what it'll sound like in the long run. Regular burn in will make the minimal difference in contrast to what happens with the pinhole nozzle.

I'm not sure I agree with this statement. Either way, I don't want to turn it into that conversation. You're free to believe what you want, but there really is no proof going either direction for burn in, especially with BAs (which have close to no data).

Think you just need time to get use to the signature.. Give it time..

Hey, just joined! \o/

 

has anybody replaced the stock cable? So far I experienced not a single issue with my UE 900 and it's been over a month, yet the stock cable is indeed annoying. What custom cables for UE 900 can you recommend which you actually tried and not just heard about? Is the Null Audio Lune Mk III any good? Anyone owns it?
 

Thanks for help.

Comply tips come with this little 'wax protection' filter, if you like complys (I don't). What's so wrong with cleaning your ears daily btw? Real men shower weekly, huh? biggrin.gif

The Comply that come with the UE 900 have no wax filter.  As for cleaning your ears daily, there is no reason to clean your ears daily unless you are swimming or doing something similar.  Taking a shower will not clean your ears.

If your getting wax in your ue900s then I think your inserting them too deep. You should select a larger tip to give a seal on the outer ear for best sound.

You just contradicted yourself. The reason would be to not to get ear wax on your (c)iems. You neither can die nor hurt your ears from keeping them clean.

 

Complys that come with UE900 are TS-500 and nobody said they come with any wax filters. There are also Comply Tsx-500, though, which feat. the same shape and sizing yet do have wax filters. Google them. If you are having wax issues, why not to try them?

Right. Because everybody has exactly the same ears so you can say this. lmao.

That's definitely not how my parents raised me. Ears need to be cleaned daily. I use my wet finger under the shower and afterwards use the cotton stick for the deeper part.

For me, this is as important as brushing my teeth. I never forget to do it.

 

Urgh, I will not consider purchasing 2nd hand IEMs for a while, thanks.

Both of you need to figure out the use of ear wax in the body.  Putting stuff into your ears without a medical professional present can be quite dangerous.  Espcially sticking cotton sticks deep into your ear.  You actually aren't cleaning your ears by doing that, you're just shoving wax deeper down.

That's what the audiologists and doctors want you to think! :P

 

If you do it correctly and regularly, it is quite safe.

Now you need to figure out why your body produces ear wax in the first place.  It's actually quite useful.

As useful as nasal mucus.

It protects the skin of the human ear canal, assists in cleaning and lubrication, and also provides some protection from bacteria, fungi, insects and water.

 

You really didn't have to dig too far into the article.  It's normal to have earwax.  Unless it intrudes upon your hearing, or causes irregular resonance (ringing), there is no need to remove it, it actually is beneficial to have.
