[REVIEW] Logitech UE9000 - Ultimate Ears HEADPHONES Released! The UE4000, UE6000 and the UE9000 -... - Page 50

Yes they are v good but if they had the bass tightness and SQ of passive mode + the amplification of active mode and maybe slightly more refined treble they would have been the best headphones under about £250. As they are, they are still very good and definately one of the top 5 under £250. Overall pleased with them. I like the UE sound signature so it would be nice to see an updated pair that are even better at some point, although these are excellent already.

I am suprised that these headphones are not getting more attention, I guess its because Logitech UE do not have as much recognition in the over ear headphone market. Sennheiser momentum, VModa M100, beats (triportsad.gif), Sony MD1r etc. are stealing all the hype.....

That's how I feel when it comes to the Yamaha PRO 500. Very underrated can that sounds spectacular.

 

I would like to test out the UE6k though. I think the time I heard it, it was in active mode only. Would love to try it in passive.

People are probably scared off from the Yamaha because of the beats styling. Would be interesting to hear them though.

Yeah I said on another thread it's a damn shame because they really are impressive. And I have gone through many headphones - none of them have sounded as natural, refined and detailed with impressive speed and balance. The layering and natural timbre are my favorite parts about this headphone. The only caveats are the comfort and size but that's not a deal-breaker for me considering how good they sound.

 

In the end, people shouldn't judge by the style but by the actual SQ - I mean then what's the difference between those people and Beats-users who would never want to try a Shure headphone then? lol Anyway, I hope more people give them a chance. Check out the thread if you have a chance, Beagle made a few comments regarding how they compare to the UE6k.

lol You're probably right but dammit that's why I expect more from my fellow head-fiers!

Can anyone who owns these please confirm with me that they are supposed to make a slight humming / hissing background noise when in active mode?

 

In passive mode they are silent but when active mode is on they have a slight background noise, is this normal or are they faulty?

All NC headphones do that.

Would just like to add that on the QC15 the hum is bearly noticeable even with no background noise, while with the UE6000 you can tell it's there. UE9000 is a little better.

I owned the QC15s and found them about the same with the UE9000s.

With these headphones everyone seems to say that they sound bad in active mode and are only any good in passive mode....

 

My opinion as that in passive mode they sound a bitboring and flat, I think that in active mode the bass actually sound better (depending on genre).... Shame about the treble in active though... Maybe this is due to lack of amping but I doubt it (Xonar STX and a dacmagic + NAD 326Bee).

 

I think If you want a refined pair with realistic timbre and neutral, flat sound for acoustic, classical or rock etc. You can get better headphones than these in passive mode for the same money, if you want a fun, punchy, dynamic sound which is v good for EDM and similar genres then these are hard to beat at the price in active mode or still decent in passive mode but a bit flat and lacking dynamics.

 

*EDIT* Actually I changed my mind about this, passive mode just sounds so much better than active in the mids and treble, still would like some more bass in passive mode though.

I just got my UE9000. I have tried listening (passive) while charging the cans.

At higher volumes, the bass was bloating crazily. Is this normal?
post #749 of 931

Hmmm no in passive mode they do not have much bass really... In active mode the bass is quite a lot

post #750 of 931

Hmmm after a week with these I cannot use them in active mode anymore due to the loss of sound quality...  Shame because I still prefer the punchier bass in active mode and I think these sound a bit anemic in Passive mode... But the sound quality in the mids and highs in passive mode, also the soundstage is just much better.
