I don't think there will be a new UE6000 at CES 2013.

There will always be something new around the corner that promises to be better.  Most likely, any headphone announced at CES won't be available to the public for 6 months or longer based on history.  If there is a headphone you like now, I would say now is the time to start enjoying it, especially if the timing works well for you.

The wire is on the right side of the headset, therefore, it's more dominant, therefore, it sounds louder on the right, therefore, I am lying, therefore, I now notice it too after reading this thread or perhaps it's just in my head, however, I dislike the wire being on the right side.  Nevertheless, for $100 and comfort factor, I am happy with it.

I doubt there will be a wave of serious consumer audio products at CES on this level. There really rarely is. Most manufacturers will push their products during audio specific shows. I wouldn't wait for CES, but I would wait on these. The issue that people are having with the channel imbalance could easily be a design flaw and one that would not have an easy fix.

How good are these?

Do you think Denon D400 and D600 are better?

First, I would not lump the D400 and D600 together as they sound nothing alike.  So I would say the UE6000 blows away the D400 at half the price (list) across the range.  The D600 sounds very different than the UE6000.  If extended high end with excellent midrange detail is more important than impactful, deep bass, the D600 may be for you.  If you are more of a basshead and prefer slightly subdued highs with an overall pleasing sound across the range, the UE6000 might be for you.  I would suggest listening to both first if possible.

I just listened to these today and was blown away by the sound for the price. Amazing.

how's the bluetooth on it?

 

I listen to everything.  Acoustic and claassical music sound better on the K550s.

"You Don't Know Your Beautiful" cover by the Piano Guys sounds the best on the Amperiors.  As do heavier rock songs, and songs that rely more on natural insturments (electric guitars included)

Hip Hop and club music sounds the best on the UEs.

 

Definitely don't hate it.  The mids are a bit too forward, and the highs are a bit too recessed for my taste to be my reference and go to headphones.

 

The bluetooth is life changing!!  I never knew wireless headphones would be so convenient.  I can walk all around the house while my phone is still being charged.  It's so much better for watching videos too.  It's just so free to not have to deal with cables.

 

 However, bluetooth forces you to listen to the headphones in NC mode which is a v-shaped frequency range.  It doesn't sound bad in this mode though.  It's worth it for on the go.  When I'm sitting down, i use cables

I found the 6000s were pretty difficult to drive out of an iPod Touch 5th Gen in passive mode.  There was just no life to the music at all...just really quiet and nothing sounded that good at all.  Obviously I'm in the minority, but I thought the NC being activated made them sound quite a bit better, tho too bass heavy/bloated.  Ultimately I returned them because I don't want to listen to headphones with batteries in them to enjoy them...the M-80s and the Monster DNAs sound significantly better at the same price point, even tho they are on-ears instead of over-ears.

 

The 6000s definitely were one of the most comfy headphones I've tried...so there is that little nugget of awesomeness.  :)

Could you please have a look over at my thread maybe you can help me out?

post #447 of 921

Do you think they are good headphones?

I listen to pop, hip hop, rap, rnb, disco music. Mainly what you would consider modern music. I also listen to rock.

I need closed back noise isolating HP for travel, public transport etc.

Do you think the UE6000 are good headphones and which ones are more suitable for me between them, the AH-D400/D600, and teh Ultrasone PRO 900?

For those of you who think the 6000's sound better in passive mode, did it take some burn in time for that result? I've had around 12 hours of burn in so far and I think that they sound way better in active mode. I feel like they are boring in passive mode and the highs sound recessed.

Since all ears are NOT made equal.  Enjoy what sounds good to YOU.  I, concur with your reason, I too, like it in active mode.  It sounds more alive and refreshing.  Comfortable, it is, my ears thank them.

Do the UE9000s have the same problem with R/L balance that I keep hearing about on the UE6000? If not then I might grab them instead of the M100's.
