Wow, very odd they said it will work. Then again it said it may have a issue with it being a preorder.

 

it works for all other UE product though,

OK, thanks for this information.  Can I confirm that when you say they, you mean Logitech CS or some other rep of Logitech/UE?  If this is true, everyone who has a code should wait and try using it again after pre-orders end :)  It'll also give you time to get initial reviews from more than 2 people :p to get a better feeling if you're making the right decision.  Patience is a virtue, and it'll work out for the best here.

These unforeseen problems are normally seen more from headphones that come first off the line. The second wave shouldn't have these. I could be wrong though.Furthermore, I'd like to address some misconceptions that may be out there. My 900s do work, I have been using them all day actually as something to listen to to and from school. The problem is gone, which means it's not there, nor can I force the problem to persist (I had to force the 900s to cut out when I first got them). I think it may have been some left over fluids from manufacturing that got into the right contact (light layer of grease) that cut out connection temporarily when moved. I can force a similar effect when I twist the headphone jack of my iPod back and forth. So they are not broken, and do function perfectly at this point in time. UE does want to look at the 900s though.


Still this is disturbing. They should be doing these rigorous tests (using even headfiers) to demo their products to give feedback before releasing these products on the market. Its unfair and selfish of them to do such things (I realize this is the MO of many of these companies and I'd hope they'd learn to do otherwise). Plan ahead and do the testing using reviewers. Then address the issues from feedback before releasing the product. Just my 2 cents. Never good to use a paying customer as a beta-tester. It always leaves a bad aftertaste. Plus why didn't they read up on these issues with Shure cables? Their TF10s cables sucked big time so why not learn from this? Plus since UE is a Custom IEM company that is known for making their own custom cables they really have no excuse for this. Lets be serious here. rolleyes.gif

I'm a reviewer...  LOL.  The product I received was pre-production.  I want to state that clearly.  I'm not a consumer, the product I received (originally) is pre-production.  I want to make that clear, pre-production.  OK, that's enough of that word, you should get the point by now (if not, re-read the previous 3 sentences).  They are addressing the issue, and are well aware of it.  IDK how everyone else got their product, but mine was not a production model.  So that said, they are demoing products through reviewers, and fixing the problems they find.  This is why Apple Store says it'll ship, not now, but later.  This is why UE is still in pre-orders for it.  

 

All that said, my current model does not have this problem, it seems to have been remedied.  I've stated this dozens of times, just because a pre-production unit has problems doesn't mean the final will.  This is a classic case of this statement.  My EtyKids 3 had problems (never got replaced) with the headphone jack bending (literally, it bent to about a 15-degree angle).  I'm 99.99999999... percent sure the EtyKids 3 production models don't have this problem.  I've dealt with various pre-production models, about 2/3s of them turn out fine.  The other 1/3 ends up having some slight problem behind it.

Ok that sounds much better. Although I had read comments of people having issues with their purchased units which I found disturbing. As long as they had demoed the products beforehand then I'm fine with it. :)
 

post #501 of 4277

I asked

" will the centerstage promo codes work for the preorder of the ue900s?"

 

UE replied

 

It should work since the UE900's are universal, though there may be complications because it is a pre-order

 

so hopefully by the time i get up to the 50% off they will be off preorder.

LOL, carefully.  Very carefully (and with hopes that they'll choose you as a lucky pig ;)).  I don't feel comfortable disclosing any more information regarding the answer :p

:D lol
 

UE if you are reading this make me your GUINEA PIG! ;).

 

In all honesty though it would be nice to see how these fair against the TF10s. I found the TF10s to be mediocre at best.

Find out who the CEO is and start dating his daughter. The other option, sleep with the CEO's wife and steal pre production gear when she isn't looking

You should be using Chrome Lee. Join the cool people.

 I think it'd make more sense to beta test it first (with head-fiers of course) and find all the issues before you do a press release and start taking orders. It prevents these conversations completely and makes them look like they're a company that's got their act together.
