Question about Ultimate Ears super.fi 5 Pro Consumer Headphones
Hiya, a client of mine has handed me a set of Ultimate Ears earphones but can't remember exactly when they were purchased (sometime in '08) and has no proof of purchase. One ear peice has become detached leaving some wires exposed. I have no paperwork at all so I'm even unsure as to which particular model they are, I just know they cost around £150. I've been asked to get a quote for their repair but at the moment I'm finding it hard to find anyone able to repair them. Any suggestions?
I had the same problem with my super.fi 5 eb headphones, and after running all over town from music shops, to electronics repair stores, I found the answer: jewelry repair. Not all jewelers have the equipment [most use torches, which are a no no around all that plastic], but one jeweler in my rural town has a laser to repair delicate jewelery. They took care of me.
As far as "robust alternative would be welcome" goes, I regret not forking over the extra $50-75 for a pair of Shure 425 which have detachable/replaceable wires and drivers. Plus they supposedly sound even better. Never again on ultimate ears for me....

I had the same problem and tried a repair by disassembling the headphone. However the housing is glued together and I had to cut the earphone apart to get inside, and it does not look like it will be easy to glue it back together. Great headphones, I love them but I will not get another pair with this cable design as it looks like this is a design flaw that will occur with all UE headphones that have this configuration. Does anyone own the new 700's? Wondering if these might be more durable.
