I tried to use other spare cables I have from V-Moda, but they have a similar problem.

 

 

Push harder. It will click.

Thanks very much FuglyPhones, it did work. Surely they designed a very tight fit ...

I tried the UE6000 at Best Buy today.

 

They should good, but my gosh the ear cups are tiny. They barely fit around my small ears. The headphone itself is comfortable but very snug. How do people with large heads/ears cope with such a headphone? Such a small headphone in person compared to what one sees in pictures.

Weird because i have massive ears and a ginormous head and I thought they were comfortable.

I found the cups to be large, spacious and cushy even though I consider myself to have larger than average ears.

So, putting my "Find-A-New-Portable-Headphone Plan" into action, I uncharacteristically sprang for these cans in their black + white version at my local apple store. So far, I'm VERY impressed, as a previous M-100 owner.

 

My "Find-A-New-Portable-Headphone Plan" (Click to show)

"Find-A-New-Portable-Headphone Plan"

  • Grieve over death of previous black Audio Technica ATH-M50's. - Unfortunately, Check.
  • Order/Buy Audio Technica ATH M50 in White, modified with a detachable cable entry. (Sound Professionals) - Check.
  • Order/Buy Ultimate Ears UE6000 in White. (Apple Store) - Check.
  • Once both UE6000 and ATH-M50 are received, compare the two on all levels. Comfort/Wearability/Sound/Features/Build. - In Progress.
  • Order/Buy AKG K267 Tiesto. - Waiting on Shipment.
  • Sell loser between ATH-M50 and UE6000, and keep winning headphone. - Waiting for Winner.
  • Compare winning headphone to AKG K267 Tiesto, possibly keep both, possibly sell loser. - Waiting on everything else.

 

Quick First Impressions from my first hour with the UE 6000...

 

PROS

  • Damn these cups are DEEP. Very big plus. 
  • More comfortable than the V-MODA M-100. Comparing to the Audio Technica ATH-M50 now.
  • I like the Black + White + Blue color scheme. Not sure if I like the blue cable though.
  • Feels solid - weight helps with that.
  • Hinge looks sturdy, plastic is flexible, folding works well.
  • Bag is cute and portable, I like it.
  • Can wear it around my next easily, even without being able to fold it flat. Clamping force helps.

CONS

  • When shifted or tugged on the device end, I get static and cutting out in my audio. Is this normal..? I'm testing it more now, but I hope the cable isn't already bad..
  • For some tracks, vocals are very nice and engaging, but for others, it feels like they're very far away. This is for the same genre of music, so I don't see why..
  • Doesn't fold flat.

 

Still listening and such, so I will offer more input later.

Since cracking with hard plastic was an issue. See: PSB M4U2.

post #581 of 936

I need these. Look so good and seem to be exactly what I need!

post #582 of 936

I have to ask...

 

Did UE purposely make the cable total crap to sell the 9000 more? One slight tug makes half the connectors disconnect, and makes the sound highly recessed. This is without any case on either my ipod or laptop, it just doesn't click in properly like other cables. I've never had this problem with anything else, it's a deal breaker, along with the stupidity of having the cable on the right side....

Precisely.  Not only that, but it also helps to better contour to one's cranium for a comfortable fit.

...I thought that I read something about having to apply a good deal of force to make the cable seat properly. (the one I demoed was permanently tethered)

I sent an email in to them - my M50's lock properly, my EarPods lock properly, the only one that doesn't, is the UE6000.

 

Sucks, because I could see myself getting behind the sound, if even a little bit.

post #585 of 936

I have read through several pages of this thread since I ordered the UE 6000's yesterday. I bought them to listen to on the go as my two children and wife would never allow me to enjoy music at the housesmile.gif My question is when listening in passive mode, are they ok to listen to without a portable amp, do they sound decent?
