Preference will play a role between which one you like between the two

 



Try different tips. The mids on mine has been bothering me since May 2013 (when I got them). Its only recently when I tried the tips that came in my latest batch of the RE0 that the mids really opened and cleared up for me.
Did u mean the white bi-flange tips?

No not the White ones but I have smallish ear canals so what may work for me may not work for you so you've gotta try and see what works out for you

You cane use any tips that'll work for you. Those RE0 tips have a wider bore than the RE400 ones, so the highs and mids come through a lot more. I guess any wide bore tip would work also.

I am on the fence about buying these.

 

On the one hand, I loved my TF10s, the Soung signature, the fun v-shape etc. But the fit was bad for me and that was what caused me to sell them.

 

I am fairly certain that I will be able to get a better fit on the Ue900 based on what ive read. I am afraid that mine will suffer build quality issues like so many others have.

 

What have you guys found on the longevity of these guys? I have no problem buying replacement cables now and then to keep it going, but I am afraid of the earphone seperating and driver flex among other things.

 

Does Deoxit provide a permanent fix for the connection issues? Does it also solve the driver flex issues or anything related?

 

Is there anything I can personally buy/do to keep the earphones from breaking?

 

Last question (sorry and thanks in advance) 

 

I have about a 300-350 dollar budget for new IEMS. Does anyone want to sell me Westone 4r or anything like that? Id be happy with a westone thats at least 3 but detachable cable also. My fixed cable westone 3 broke :(

 

Thanks guys! I have about two weeks before I travel all over the country for work and I need to have my portable music game down and ready to go :)

the updated model should have corrected any issue the old model had build wise and sound wise, but only time will tell how they hold up. only had the new model for a few days so far no problems. ue is good with honering their warenty if that means anything to you

Is now a good time to buy UE 400's?  I really like the sound but I am worried about 244 pages of potential problems.  Is there a newer version coming out soon?

post #3654 of 3657

sound is amazing when you fit it correctly, just be sure that little pinhole bore is perpendicular to your ear drum and make sure you have good vacuum on your ear canal.
if so, I will guarantee you that you will get a fully warm, coherent sound with good bass. Like them more than Sony XBA-H3.

 

 

 

UE please, next time make the acoustic filter design more simpler that will work in any human ear.

I can fully vouch for this, I too am a TF10 lover, and I was holding out on UE900 for a very long time, until recently when I saw a good deal and I went for it.

 

To tell you the truth, maybe my best purchase of the year, and glad that I did, and yes, you MUST get the correct fit and vacuum seal to hear the 'real' sound

the new version is out and thats the one you will receive if you pruchase it from them

post #3657 of 3657

All of your guys' replies helped me pull the trigger! I was worred about these guys being too neutral. I am glad that they hve some warmness and some low end when sealed properly.

 

Thanks all! :) :)
