Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread - Page 158

post #2356 of 3624

Hello i joined the UE 900 club, i got a 30% discount price from a local store that had a weekend sale on the UE 900 in Norway :)

 

Beautyful looking Iem, i could not resist it with a discount like this.

 

I got one with the serial no. that starts with 1244, i have done some reading and observed that some people have some problems with the connectors etc. on the early batch like 1234 etc.

Should i worry with a serial no. like this(1244)?

 

And some people report that the black paint on the iem has some issues. soo have anybody tried this "mod"?

And what kind of protector is that? It does not look like a phone screen one? Its soft and flexible, hmm makes me wonder?

 

And btw. sorry if this has been asked before, but i have not had the time yet too read all the posts in this thread.

 

Im working on it :)

You can use the search function. It's your friend. And I read about someone trying like clear nail polish. It could work as a protective layer. I hope you enjoy your UE900 :)

Ahh ok, i am gonna use the search function. Yeah clear polish is a smart idea.

And thanks.

Thanks people for giving some helpful tips.  Logitech was very quick to replace my defective set.  Haven't received them yet but I'm looking forward to having a functional pair.  I was also told that they're going to send me something called DEOXIT.  I thought that was a rather nice touch.  Would all of you recommend applying some right out of the box.  Or every few months of use.

Some users used it out of the box if they ran into issues.  They are supposed to help clean the contacts of the UE900.  I used a standard brush to do it, this is a chemical way to do it though.  Both work.  I still believe its post-manufacturing that leaves this residue.  It could also be that the residue is coated to avoid oxide building up (they aren't gold plated).

i suggested clear nail polish, haven't tried it myself though. i still haven't had any issues, i've had a couple of cut outs on the right side, but only when i've moved my head suddenly and only in the first couple of weeks, no problems for the last month.

sorry for the double post, coincidentally found that the UE 900 is currently ~50% off via logitechs UK store (169 instead of £329):

Hey guys, Recently lost my soft pouch for my UE900s.  It's such a small piece that I can't really buy it on its own.  Anyone on this forum willing to let theirs go?

 

Cheers!

You can buy some random drawstring pouch off ebay otherwise. Works fine and well, even if it looks riddiculous, small pink pouches are underrated.

Any comparison of these to the Westone 3 or TF10?

Basically much less exciting and kind of boring.  UE900 is flat and reference level neutral in it's presentation where TF10 and W3 (especially W3) are much more robust, colorful and slamming.
