Has anyone ever had a failure of one of the drivers (just one driver, on one side) in the TF 10's?
It sounds like the bass-driver is gone in the left earbud of my TF 10's. I can't hear no kick-drum or bass-lines at all, in the left earbud.
This happened over a year ago when I got a Westone replacement cable for them and I wasn't happy with the sound compared to previous cables (too wide soundstage, lack of 'presence', etc.) so I was repeatedly pulling them out and changing the orientation (of the cable pins) to see which orientation gave the best sound. I must have twisted the internal components up when I was wiggling out the cable pins.
I haven't been using them since then, but I really want to get them fixed so I can return to UE heaven.
So, the driver could be damaged or it could simply be a loose connection to that driver (hopefully the latter).
Either way I'll have to send it somewhere to get it fixed.
Would a re-shell company (like Unique Melody) be able to repair the broken driver? I was thinking about getting a re-shell anyway, so two birds, one stone (an expensive stone).
If it was just a loose/broken internal connection it would just require a small bit of soldering wouldn't it?
But, if the driver is broken then they would have to replace it, and for balance they would probably have to replace the driver on the other side as well would they?
Anyone ever been in a similar situation? Do the reshell companies do repairs like this?
I'm in Ireland so all those companies are equally far from me it seems, I'd probably prefer to go with UM anyway because I might get a fourth driver added also.
