Yea, no doubt. Funny how the TF10 was always hailed as "balanced". But when UE900 came out people started talking about how u-shaped TF10 is. Ultimate Ears even realized the way to go. TF10 was basically a consumer version of UE10 with a more colorful sound. I think that was smart since despite the crappy fit UE sold a ton of TF10's. Logitech decided to go back to a flatter neutral reference level offering (UE900) for the consumer market and I have to think the sales are below expectations. Though I suppose some of this could be due to the many front end quality issues.
i agree. quality is a big problem with the UE900, its not like the tf10 doesnt have its faults. but a new product you would think would be of greater quality, both in the housing and the sound....esp with some of the cable issues ue900 owners have been having...IMO as far as a UIEM the tf10 is their holy grail, it was made and designed and had its share of hails and disappointments. i think alot of people probably thought that the ue900 was going to be like the yf10 but with better ergonomics only to find out thats not the case.
between the ue900 flop, and the westone W series flop.....i really tend to wonder what these companies are doing. esp going back to drawing boards and not creating something more superior and becoming a successor.....i donno it just baffles me
