Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread - Page 24

post #346 of 4277

No problem, glad I could contribute.  Here are some pictures (my wife has my two good camera's so the pictures aren't all that great, sorry), but I am sure someone can post better pictures.

 

The size difference isn't too big, but the form factor does change the ease of fit for me quite a bit.

I can't really tell through the pictures, but how is the overall build quality ?

I think I'll stay away from these for now, and save up for CIEM. Thanks for impressions and pics average_joebeerchug.gif

I wonder how well that UE900 faceplate is going to stay on there. If there's a weak spot it sure looks there around the seam. rolleyes.gif

Not sure from these pictures but it actually looks like the UE900 has a smaller bore sound tube?  Especially the last picture where the TF10 tube measures as wide onscreen as the UE900 despite being in the background?  Can you confirm, Joe?

I dont think sonically they make a difference considering they dont have dynamic driver and it is all BA, but that is a great point.

I wasn't really talking about there being sonic differences. Nore really people walking around with a naked shell of armatures hanging out their ear. o_O TF10 have a weak spot where the nozzels glues onto the housing, we've several cases of them falling apart. I'm guessing UE900's weak spot will be there around the faceplate seal.

So if your TF10s were under warranty and they were to go defective would you get the UE900? ;).

I think mine would definitely break down quite quickly if that was the case Lee.

My TF10's are broken at the moment. Hope so!

post #358 of 4277

Well with a little persistent persuasion you never know ;). When it comes to stuff breaking and warranty support I can be a pest myself. That's how I scored my Logitech Z5500s for $175.00 with free shipping from Logitech. I previously owned their Z5300 which was their flagship before the Z5500s. When my unit broke they insisted on replacing them with some crappy 2.0 set of speakers. I called "BS" and said I want your current flagship minus what I paid for the previous Z5300 speakers. So I scored them at $175.00 :P.

you also got your ie8's replaced by ie80's right? rolleyes.gif

post #360 of 4277

No I sold my IE8s to Chefano to fund my IE80s ;).

 

But regardless this is nothing new. A company generally has to offer you the same item as a replacement under warranty or upgrade you at their loss. Don't be fooled by some of these companies. They'll try to take you for a ride if you don't speak up. I sure as hell would make a commotion if I was being screwed. Basically spitting it back in their face saying "that this is not my problem and don't make it my problem." Sennheiser was replacing the IE7s under warranty with IE80s just as they were replacing the IE8s with IE80s."

 

I've never lost with this to be honest. Even the BS I went through with Dell was like pulling teeth. But in the end I got my way and an upgraded machine over my old and constantly-defective machine.
