UE use to be just about IEM's.  Jerry Harvey was a founder and masterminded the TF10.  Logitech knows nothing about IEM's. They just acquired UE as a side market niche.   It's not what they do.  They hired a couple slugs to manage that division and it has suffered since.  Jerry Harvey moved on and created JH Audio.  As far as success in IEM's goes, I think Jerry made out much better.  Logitech still struggling with IEM's.  They seemingly assumed it was a simple turnkey operation but look at the disaster that has happened?  Their flagship UE900 is routinely beaten relentlessly by a multitude of IEM's half it's price.   And was a general downgrade to TF10.   Also hard to pull a fast one on such astute IEM's fanatics like ourselves  :smile:

Agreed. Not to mention that they completely wiped out the entire consumer line with the exception of the UE 900/900s which is all one big saga thus far.

So wait........... They revised the 900, and then proceeded to mix up the parts for the old and new models?............................

 

Well, by time I do pull the trigger on these hopefully they will have gotten their stuff together. And hears still dreaming that Jerry will take back what he started and set UE on proper course.

No they didn't. At this point the 900s are identical to the 900 according to Logitech. The only diff is that the 900s comes with more tips and gel for the connectors. If you are planning to buy the 900s save yourself the $150-$200 and just get the 900. Logitech said they will announce once the rev 900s are available. 

Also, one of the members here reported that he had demoed both the 900 and the 900s and the 900s sounded bass light but clearer so keep that in mind...

Beware to anyone trying to sell their UE900S on eBay. Unless you put in your description a link to the post in this thread where Rory of UE states the only difference in the UE900 and UE900S is basically the packaging and additional accessories, and your buyer files a dispute stating they didn't get the UE900S, eBay will side with the buyer and force you to refund the buyer. I know because I just went through a week long dispute that was literally raised on day 29 hour 23. And even after posting the links to this thread where this is discussed, ebay still sided with the buyer.

That's unethical of the buyer, may the buyer burn in hell.

But a few pages back people were saying that this was unethical of the seller (Logitech). Some double standards going on here it seems.

Rising the dispute at literally the last minute, it's obvious that the guy knew what he was getting.

 

He have 29 days and 23 hours to communicate with MrFaust to iron out any issues but no, he choose to sneak in a dispute at the very last minute and hope that MrFaust didn't notice the dispute.

I have to admit some eBay buyers are exploiting loopholes in eBay's buyer protection policy which were designed to protect people from fraudulent sellers who took the money and sent nothing. The other week I sold an item to a guy who claimed he had not received it despite it having been signed for at his address. When I suggested I'd investigate it the item mysteriously turned up. He then had the cheek to email me saying he didn't really like the item as he had the model above. If you want Amazon's return policy pay twice the price and buy from Amazon. Still, in my opinion, not explicitly highlighting any possible cause for complaint in your description leaves you wide open to such scammers.

Totally agree.

I literally didn't read this post because of the annoying double commas and double periods.

I did read this post, despite it's bizarre punctuation and couldn't agree more. My UE900 are by far and away the best iem's I have ever owned and I love them to bits. I take great care of them and, touch wood, they'll last for many years to come. Yes, many people on here have reported problems, but what does this represent percentage wise of the total units sold? I personally hope they continue to make class leading iem's for years from now and will continue to buy their product. I do totally understand how negative experiences influence a persons future choices, but in the interests of fairness and balance on these forums I would like to publicly state that my experience, so far, of the UE900 have been wholly positive.

I think most of us agree that they sound good. it's the poor quality that leaves a bitter taste, add to it that fact they reduced the warranty from 2 years to 1 an wiped out the consumer line with the exception of the 900s. Then the 900/900s fiasco and there you go, a lot of people won't spend their money on UE after having such a bad experience.  I don't know the percentage but from what reported it seems like the 900 had plenty of issues. Mine as well.
