I got these headphones a few months ago and there still isn't music that I have played with them that does not impress me. I have teh Audio Technica ES10s and I use these so much more as their sound stage is very dynamic and they are much more portable

The steel brush affect is really cool, anything specific make the paint start to wear off?

It's funny that you guys wishing for the paint to peeled off, while I want the opposite. But anyway here's another shot of it. Enjoy!

I wanted to drop in on this thread... I bought a pair of these a while ago, and I've been experiencing problems with the right channel dropping out occasionally. I should have checked earlier, but I now realise this is a reported problem with these. Cleaning the contact with an IEM cleaner or blowing on it with a camera cleaner doesn't seem to improve things. Have a serial number beginning with 1245.

 

Question: has Logitech been good about replacing these and have the replacements generally be free of issues? I was going to complete a review, get these replaced, and then sell them BNIB.

Camera cleaner, if that's a liquid, you're not really helping the issue. The liquid water will just evaporate and leave even more residue on the contacts. The solution was to brush them with a small tooth brush or IEM cleaner for a minute or two. Both sides of the contacts need to be cleaned. Male and female ends as well as the inner-side and outer-side of the contacts if they are exposed (male plug).

Any left over residue is dried on there, so if will be tougher to clean, but does come off.

I believe that a_recording was talking about the rubber air bulbs used to clean cameras / lenses with a blast of air.

That won't do anything then.  The issue is more likely than not caused by a residue (more or less a thin film) left over from manufacturing the male and/or the female contacts.  Air won't get rid of it.  You'll have to literally brush/rub/scrape it off.

I had the same issue. Treating the contacts with Deoxit seems to've fixed it.

I'll try some longer brushing with the IEM cleaner and see what happens. Is the film actually meant to be visible?

 

I can't believe this is even an issue at this point. As I understand 1245 is a relatively late batch.

The film isn't visible until you start getting the layer off. UE really needs to find a different manufacturer or get them to improve. Lol. Either that, or the entire batches that were sent to Logitech were bad.

This is ridiculous. Surely enough people have returned them for someone to send a memo.

 

Welp. This is going into the review.

Hopefully it changes soon.  UE should have cut the current batch, but they haven't :(

I have and other people have had that same kind of problem with the shure products like the 535 for example. I just cleaned the connections with rubbing alcohol with a qtip and that seemed to work for me anyways. It is a headache though and think they would fix the problem.
