Pros: Very smooth and accentuated lows , The most comfortable pair i have ever seen or used , decent sound stage , well defined mids , price ,Good Isolation
Cons: Bad treble when it goes over the top ,
When listening to music , i used to plug in my razer electra's , not that its gone in the dumpster but it did give a solid sound. Now when i started to use my UE6000 the sound felt so different that it took me to a new level of listening. Like i stated in the pro whatever genre of music plays the lows are very well defined that means the drums , keys and sounds that are normally drowned show up to an ever present smoothness. The mid's are a bit bait laid back but they contribute in making the sound refined and giving them this well textured layering that works well with everything over and below it. Now the lows and mid's are so separate yet chimed in that they sound beautiful when listening to music by bands like The Mars Volta , The Black keys , Staind etc. I know i shouldve mentioned the highs too before getting to the kinda music i listen to but here's the thing the highs are subservient to the mid's and lows , the don't go too loud but cautiously look over them to maintain the equilibrium.
The overall V signature gives it a nice effect. Now all this said i was talking about the passive mode and before i explain about about it i want to say that im a movie addict and did my headphone search also mostly based on weather it would give the juice to those three dimensional sfx we love to hear in theaters. When i turn the ANC on , man am i in my own haven cuz its flawlessly superb for enjoying movies , series whatever be the genre. you get so involved and shut out from the outside world that you want to disconnect from sometimes. The preciseness of the positioning is a noteworthy mention here and the thunderous yet tight rumbling when sfx crash in is another. So it goes to say that when listening to just music unless its rap or hip hop i don't really use this feature.
About the soundstage , its precise , accurate , yet not too wide like maybe higher priced models. It is what it is , around your ear staying loyal to its immediate vicinity.
Now the gripe about my new buy is just this , i cant get them to play heavy metal music. Music like "21 guns" by Green Day , sounds a bit drowned by the bass and confused when the heavy guitar chorus kicks in. Does anyone else have the similar issue ? because i would really like to know. However songs by Metallica sounded great , and when it comes to the newer era of metalaholic , it performs a tad bit too slow in the mids / highs that make the livewire guitars sound lazy and chaotic.
Finally the treble , overall i don't suppose that this is the best treble to have been experienced ,only because when it goes over a level there is a lac of it. This could also be the reason why metal music doesn't flow like high voltage electricity through these.
The bass - perfect to the core and the drums beat with such effect yet maintaining that delicately precise smoothness that audiophiles and not bass-heads would admire.
About the sound isolation i feel these are a perfect work since i feel lost in another dimension when these are around my head
The rest to say is the build quality which is quite evident in the picture , and when you get to actually hold one as it hangs sturdily from your hands you get to admire the beautiful modern simplistic design that has shaped these cans. There's leather at the top under , the band is made of a smooth rubberized finish and the frames are aluminium. The memory foam paddings are housed encircling the driver unit that covered by another layer of comfy blue foam cloth.
So that's all to say and i dived straight into the sound quality first and then into the other aspects after it , so hope my review helped you in your buying decision.
