Pros: Accessories

Cons: Doesn't seem to be changed visually from old model

I decided to purchase the new model UE 900s instead of the UE 900 because of some build quality changed and added accessories. Here is a review of what I received.

 

 

Packaging - The packaging is very nice and they fit a lot into the fairly small box. Everything is quite elegant looking

 

Accessories - There are tons of accessories. There are many sizes of silicon and foam eartips to choose from, including spares of each one. There are 2 different headphone cables (one with a mic and 3 button, one without), a hard carrying case, and some connector cleaning gel

 

Build quality - What UE has promised that it has improved the build quality, and going to a more unibody design, that isn't what I've seen in my UE 900s. They appear to be exactly the same as the old UE 900 even though their website and picture on the box show differently

 

Sound - The sound is quite good. They have fairly low lows, and very clear highs. It seems to be a very good pairing with my FiiO X5. These are some of the best sound IEMs I have personally used

 

 

There are some other notes I'd like to add for people trying to make an informed purchase. Logitech has been selling the UE 900s with promises of an all blue unibody design, improved build quality, and redesigned bass tube. What I received in my box (as have others on Head-Fi) is the new UE 900s packaging and accessories, but what appears to be the old model UE 900 in the box. Had what I received been an IEM that had the promised changes I would have scored these much higher. I am currently working with Logitech to resolve this issue.

the reviews section is not the place for you to complain about how you got screwed over by some random amazon seller
 
if you really want to post this somewhere do it on the actual boards
same here , not the right place fella .
In fact is not all the same compare to the old model, it have the same BA but not the filters and some sort of glue things~~
I didn't get screwed over by a random Amazon seller, my purchase was from a Logitech authorized dealer. This has been discussed on the boards as many of us who purchased from Logitech and their authorized dealers have been shipped the wrong product. In fact, not a single person so far that has purchased the UE 900s has gotten the 900s, they've all gotten the 900 packed in a 900s box. It wasn't my idea to bring this to the reviews section, but that of the many people on the UE 900 board. I can remove it if that's what I am supposed to do, but I was told this was the best way to warn the masses about the issues that people are having with the UE 900s.
I have updated my post to be a review of what I received in box with my UE 900s purchase. It should now conform to the guidelines for reviews on Head-Fi.
You guys have to understand this though, the reviewer bought an updated version of the UE900, the UE900s. Instead he received the older UE900, which doesn't have the improved build quality of the 900s. I'd be mad aswell, heres a vid about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J8Hy3-H6Bc
Wao, is really shock me if it is really truth~~ I though the old model is call the UE900VI and the new model is call the UE900S, and the box is not the same too (old model with black box which my brother owned it and new model comes with the white box).....I was told by a local dealers today that the changes of the new model are:
1 New filter that gives more bass 
2 Different frequency divider
3 Newly design quad BAs 
4 Different carrying case
5 More tips
6 Small red dot near the cable connector to differentiate left and right
7 Some sort of improvement on the glue things which I really not sure exactly what is it......
 
and things that not included in the new model are
1 6.35mm adapter
2 Airline adapter
3 Pouch for carrying case
I have spoken to Logitech and have gotten to the bottom of things. I will update my review to reflect the new info I have.
Hope Logitech will give you a more detail specification about these 2 models as its really make the consumers confuse and thanks very much for your reviews
