Hi guys,

i need help with a problem on the UM1's rubber part, the wire restrainer.(I dunno if it's called that)

Less than 1 year of use, it has become very yellowish and also the rubber part furthest away from the earbud is slowly splitting up one by one (the flexible notches)

as for the yellowing, i tried mild detergent, and hydrogen peroxide as suggested in other threads. No help at all..

Is there any way i could solve this problem?
Ive attached a pic of it, its much yellower than whats in the pic by now, and the splitting rubber notches is getting worse altho i treat it with extreme delicate care..

the aging of clear silicone strikes again!

keep this in mind if you are thinking about clear custom sleeves =)

hey LFB,

yea its becoming snapping/splitting part by part, and i don't know whether to keep using them or not..

i don't think its covered under warranty as I've emailed Doug before.
anyone has any suggestion what i should do?
