Logitech UE 900 Reviews

caffed

Good mid range IEMs, although the right ear tips make a difference

Posted

Pros: Crisp but not piercing highs, adequate bass, good sound stage, Logitech customer support is very helpful and proactive

Cons: mids can seem a little flat time, cheap look and construction

This is my first review so keep that in mind.   I bought a pair used UE 900's at Cex, an electronics resale store in San Francisco. I was cleaning them and pulled the wrong way on the MMCX connector and the freakin' right unit came apart and ripped the internal wires apart. I contacted Logitech tech support and was shipped a complete UE 900s for a replacement! They were quick and helpful to respond, much better than I was.   So, this review is for the Logitech UE 900 and Logitech UE 900s units.   THE GOOD   These IEMs really excel at representing distinct highs. Cymbals, falsettos, and all high frequencies sound crisp and clear. Until I found the right ear tip,...

Review of the new UE900s version

Posted

Pros: great detailed sound, unique look, a TON of eartips

Cons: pricey, weak strain relief

This is a review of Logitech/Ultimate Ears UE900s multi-driver in-ear monitors. http://www.ultimateears.com/en-us/900s   The original UE900 was my first pair of hi-fi IEMs, the one which opened up my eyes and ears to higher quality multi-driver in-ear headphones. Though I have tested a lot of other headphones afterwards, in different dynamic/BA driver configurations, I still like to visit them from time to time for more listening and comparison. I also noticed comments from people who purchased their pair over a year ago with some early production batch issues (related to the cable connector), though my original UE900 pair from last October with a gold-plated connector never...

UE900

Posted

Pros: Comfort and Fit, Soundstage, Detail, Deep bass, SQ

Cons: Putting them on for the first time was a real challenge

Switched to these from a TDK BA200 and the difference is phenomenal. I only paid about 80quid more for these than the BA200 with all the discounted sets appearing here and there. The first thing I noticed after getting a good fit was the immense soundstage. They are very detailed and clear in reproducing music, but are rather lenient on most lower quality mp3 recordings. This is a plus for me as I tend to listen to lower quality files. When my music shuffles upon a good recording however, the soundstage is really captivating. Best IEM's I have ever owned/tested.

Very versatile all-rounder if you don't mind doing a little extra work

Posted

Pros: Good bass, nice and warm mids, smooth treble, decent layering and sounstage. Appealing looks.

Cons: Very fit dependent, cable swivels and memory wire doesn't hold its shape. Doesn't feel like $400 iems.

First of all. I'm going to review these based on my listening experiences using a 100 Ohm adapter or from the Out2 of my BH. My pinholes are about 2/3 - 3/4 blocked. I'm using meelec balanced dual flanges and I have elongated the nozzle of my right housing with the tube from a comply TS500. For me that's the best sound I can get from them.   These feel like they don't need any formal introduction. As the follow up and replacement to one of the most renowned iems on the planet, the TF10, they have a lot to live up to. I've never heard the TF10. The UE900 were actually my first real iem-crush. From the moment I saw them I knew that I would buy them. With every review I read I knew...

WOW

Posted

Pros: Fantastic sound quality, strong bass, clear mids, crip highs, looks like a piece of jewelery.

Cons: its always a bit of a mission to put on, a pit too pricey (i got them with military discount though), the cord doesnt feel very good, foam earbuds rip

what can i say, the first serious IEM i ever owned. makes all the other IEMs I've ever listened to sound like ****, and i pack some decent sounds (XBA-3,XBA-4, EX1000)

Awesome sound

I had wants to try these earphones for a while, an I am gla that I picked them up. sound quality and clarity is fantastic, really fantastic. if I had one poor note on these (which won't diminish my rating for them) is that the bass is a bit lacking but not by much, it's mainly at the lower volume levels that I have noticed this.. but all around the earphones are fantastic and if you have the money I strongly recommend you get a pair

Favorite IEMs to date

Posted

Pros: Design, Fit, Sizes, SQ

Cons: Price, and Cables

So let me start of with saying this review is geared for people who are trying to decide if buying these is a good investment, from a more average consumer. I am not an audiophile or musician, I just really enjoy music. I got these from my local Apple Store, where headphone selection is very limited to begin with. Seeing something like these for $400 you'd actually be curious to see them. You are paying for an experience, for me $400 was a bit pushy to think of, but it was worth it for these bad boys.   Yes it is.   First being, quality packaging: For my personal experience I tend to be disorganized with the contents of my day bag. These things come with a carrying...

My first taste of great iem's

Posted

Pros: I can find no real flaws, sound is amazing.

Cons: Just had a heck of a time putting them on lol.

I bought these on a whim and have no regrets. Just let me say wow, I'm just hoping when I get my he-400's they don't get overshadowed. But the ue900's are going to be for work and on the go. I've only had them for less than a day. I've just loved them unequalized, they are the first headphone/iem's that I liked unequalized. So they will need a bit more scrutiny when I get my he-400's but apples vs oranges really. If anyone has a recommendations for a portable amp that could tackle both? Pm me thanks and to anyone pondering the purchase, if you can levy the cash just go for it:D. Update: Got some replacement tips off of amazon, and perfect fit now! No joke on isolation being excellent.And...

UE900

Posted

Pros: Fit,design,Sound,pakaging

Cons: price

  I previously owned UE triple-fi 10pro which was ue's old flagship iem. Just got them today and this ue900 has a lot of improvement. First thing is isolation. Tf10 has medium level isolation comparing to Shure’s or Westone iem However Ue900 now provides a way better isolation than tf10. Second it is so much comfortable compares to tf10. I had no issue with wearing my Tf10 but with ue900 I can only notice I am wearing headphone when I touch my ears. Third is the midrange. Tf10 has more distance on vocal and some midrange instrument yet ue900 brought those distanced midrange in to your ears. It is full, rich and vivid. The last is bass. Tf10 has...

Logitech UE900, WoW!

Posted

Pros: Audio, design, isolation, fit, cable

Cons: price, fitting them

Hi all and welcome to my review of the UE900.   Just got these from an RMA of my old TF10 from Logitech. I can start of with that I'm not a music an or a professional within the music industry, i just love to listen to music and i do it all through the day. This will be a basic review to give you an idea about what to expect from them.     Sound Reproduction: The sound in these are amazing, that was my first through after i plugged them into my phone and started the music. Tested with a HTC One X with Beats Audio and random spotify music("extreme" quality). I can clearly hear the improvement over the old TF10 compared to these. Don't have anything...
