Awesome thread, but with 156 pages of info sometimes its hard to search for answers. Sorry if this has been asked/replied to before.
I just got mine UE900, serial number on the box was covered with a new sticker and has 1332NBxyz on it. Should I assume its a new batch with fixed problems? I have been listening to these for almost a week and no problems with audio either using black or blue cables. The problem is that I'm not too crazy about these braided cables (constantly gets tangled up) and I absolute hate that flex-wire clear tube around earpiece end which bends around your ears. I'm used to wearing IEH with wire dangling down which is awkward with OEM wires (and IMHO, oem wires look so flimsy - I would afraid to pull on these by accident). I know there are some fancy cable replacements with pricing $100 and up, but after a quick search on ebay it came up with two choices for $16-$22. I know those most likely are not using a quality wire, but for a general comfort of wearing with while using my Note 2, and considering how durable they look and $22 has in-line remote, do you guys have any opinion or experience ordering these from ebay:
I like the red one with angled plug and in-line mic, although not crazy about "beats" red color. The other black one looks kind of cheap. So, any suggestions or recommendation or experience using these? I'm not looking for anything expensive, just need something more durable and being able to use with wires down.
Another comment, I keep reading about sound improvements after pinhole is closed. Is this something you would recommend doing right now or waiting for a "natural" closure of it? How would I even go about it on my own to close that pinhole?
