How much are the price of re-shelling from Stereo without having them to do the impressions for me..? I will be doing my ear impressions from DIgisound and pass the impressions.. Thanks for the swift response and feedbacks..!!

so far i have tried 3 reshelling companies

i did
1 Null Audio reshells
2 UM reshells
3 Stage93 reshells
with them so i believe mine is reliable

Null Audio
The worst i have ever done!
1) slow in processing (no response)
2) does not reply any emails or calls to him(in the end i went to his house straight to find him, then he dare to talk to me)
3) tells u can get it done in 6 weeks the most! in the end, waited more than 3 months for it!
4) Bubbles appear on both my shells! it was pretty obvious! and my drivers were so so messy! i was reshelling UM3x and the result, the drivers were messy, the wirings were messy...i shake the iem, i could see the wiring move too!

Overall : 0/10

Unique Melody(Stereo)
Was great for me though i heard quite alot from others of something else
1) Great service!(Stereo-Brian/Ivan...of course la!)
2) Could get info of my iem in a day from Stereo
3) was supposed to wait longer but i sort of ask for faster and they did it!! the only mistake was it became recessed instead of flat
4) no air bubbles, wiring was neat
5) But, i heard from other people that UM is having like cracks in their iem by time it arrived

Overall: 9/10(For possible cracks)

Stage93
1) Great service from the staff there!
2) Replies promptly and gives you information asap
3) has rush service!(but of course u pay more)
4) No air bubbles, clean and tight
5) until now no complaints from anyone who did reshell at stage93

Overall: 9/10(New company, consistency unsure)


Conclusion: u can go for stage93 if you want rush service or if you like to go for UM u can go to stereo. But Null Audio is a no no.
6 reshells altogether?!

IIRC, $179 for reshelling, $50 for shipping (which can be shared) and they do not do impression. DigiSound is recommended around here and cost is $64.20 inclusive of GST.

Yes, you can share the shipping cost with other buyers

Sorry for the late respond! :x Was kept busy earlier in the day.

That's correct, if you could find people to reshell together with you at the same time, you could split the shipping by the amount of people ( maximum four i guess ).

A pity. I may be reshelling my customs in Dec, unless there's a good promo for UM
why reshell again?

Early batch from 1964 Ears workmanship not so good and I feel that the material used by UM is much better. Anyway, almost one year liao so warranty is almost over.
