Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread - Page 169

post #2521 of 3716

I've owned and used these headphones for the past 5 months but it's only been in the last several weeks that they're becoming unbearable with really bad sores in both of my ears. I'm not sure what's changed or why it's only been in past several weeks but I keep trying to re-arrange the wire but nothing seems to ease. I wear them up to 40 hours per week so probably doesn't help but nothings changed in the past 5 months and I've always used in-ear headphones for up to 40 hours per week for the past 6 to 8 years without issues like this. I never had any issues in first 3.5 months I've been using them no sores nothing till now and they irritate and hurt like a bi*tch that I really feel I have to discontinue use to give my ears chance to heal.

 

I think it's due to the housing like others have mentioned. Affected areas of my ear are Antitragus & tragus.. Look at ear diagram below to see

 

I'm using the small black caps not extra small but small and my right ear tragus seems much sorer then left ear Any advise ?

Spoke to someone at Logitech as I was hoping to buy them direct. They tell me they have been discontinued...is that correct?

Certainly not listed to buy on the logitech uk site. Should still be able to get stock through the likes of amazon etc right now.

Yeah, they are discontinued. They had a really short lifespan for a flagship earphones. I mentioned it 2 weeks ago. This is why they were heavily discounted.

Are you saying that the. Ue 900 are discontinued?? Are they coming out with a new one already.? Maybe I missed something somewhere in this thread.. Is so I'm sorry lol

You can buy them from the US / CA site but not the UK / EU sites?

Isn't the US site a little more reference when it comes to logictech products than UK site?

I hope not as it's a European (Swiss) company.

post #2528 of 3716

Oh, my bad.

 

I've always thought Logitech was a US company :D

UE900 discontinued? I guess they weren't selling well, or too plagued by quality issues. Either way I'm happy I picked up one of the last pairs. Well made, as far as I can tell. No build issues so far, but it's only been two weeks. I'm hoping the UE950 will be even better. Put in 5 drivers!

Nah...sort of like what Westone did....they will come up with an updated TF10.  Probably use the tooling on the UE900 housing, change color and give it a better cable, charge $349 and make a ton of money.

Now that sounds interesting.  I never really did care much for the UE900 or W4.

Received a replacement UE 900 last week, so I guess Logitech still has some left. 

Can't believe they are already discontinued.

I placed an order on Taobao for some UE900s just yesterday, been wading through this thread in order to get up to speed and then I get to the punchline: they've been plagued by quality control issues and have been discontinued!! Oh well.. I didn't pay a lot for them (about $200) so it's not the end of the workd, and maybe I'll be one of the lucky ones. 

 

Either way, I'm looking forward to finding out what they sound like with my new DX50. It's been doing a good job with my old Klipsch s4as, so hopefully the UE900s will be an even better match... while they last!

post #2534 of 3716
Wow. Discontinued. Maybe I should keep my other pair as a backup, wait until the new version comes out and then hope the old ones break.
post #2535 of 3716

Discontinued? This has to be the fastest product cancel from a major manufacturer in a long time. As an UE900 owner I have to say good riddance... The build quality is utterly shameful. First the shell cracked into two, then the first cable broke (or the connector?), then the second! I feel bad for the engineers responsible for the driver tuning though - sound quality wise the the UE900 is still a good product!
