There's other interesting stuff in the UE University Archives, but the sweat thing made me think of this:

Thanks for the info cee tee. I had no idea there were cables for iphones. The UE cable is one of the few cables I felt did not need an aftermarket cable in terms of ergonomics for some reason.

Just wanted to share a panorama of UE Labs with people; this is where your UERMs were crafted!

Steelcase leaps! 

 

Which totl headphones would you guys say the UERMs are most similar to in terms of sound signature? 

post #350 of 574

That would be the HD800

post #351 of 574
HD800ish
post #352 of 574

Hmm thought so. I still haven't heard a hd800 yet; I don't know why I didn't listen to one during the last spring NY meet 

:confused:

The times I heard the SR009 it would probably also qualify but you would need to change your entire setup for that and drop a lot more for that than the HD800

My only fear with the hd800s is the treble. I've heard the UERMs with a couple of amps and with most of them, the treble was fine, with the exception of the uha-6s mkii w/ OPA209 and the asgard 2.

There's a meet in Queens in a few weeks where I'm sure the HD800 will make an appearance. I had the same fear but it was all for nothing when I actually heard them.

I will be there with my nfb-10es2, so I'll be able to hear for myself if the treble is harsh or not :D. Thanks for the info, and see you there!

2.5 weeks until my UERM arrives.

Tick tock...

Does anyone know if Ultimate Ears offers a Black Friday deal? Kind of tempted to sell my 2x HD600 (one for home and one for the office) and Westone 4R and get the UERM. I just heard the W4R from the SR71A and I have a whole new appreciation for what iems can do...

post #359 of 574

I think any deals they have would be with Logitech instead so whatever iems they have. The only custom deals they have are if you buy something at a meet or show. I could be wrong however but can't recall any other time they do discounts.

What was your issue with the UERM/Asgard 2?
