The UE6000 box is sealed with stickers you have to cut in order to open.

 

How did you get BB to accept a return on an opened item? I know Costco has a satisfaction guaranteed policy, but i didn't think BB did.

Apparently, BB also has a satisfaction guarantee (they did with me anyway).  I asked an employee before I bought them and they stated I had 14 days to return them if not satisfied.  I was very careful not to rip any of the packaging and used a knife to cut the tape (I'm that way with every HP purchase).  

 

They seemed well made.  On the heavy side, but yet comfortable.

I had the same experience.  I also returned the UE 6000 within 14 days.  I also had a similar experience in terms of why I returned it: the CAL! has overall better sound quality.   Still, the UE sounds good, is more forgiving of low-resolution sources (because of treble roll-off), isolates much better, and seems better built.  Comfort level (to me) is similar, because the UE 6000 has larger cups but is heavier.  I can see how someone may actually prefer the UE 6000 to the CAL!, depending on intended use.

 

Edit---2013-09-09.  I bought a UE 6000 set from another Best Buy store on Saturday.  I think i will keep it this time and use it as a travel headphone and occasionally at the office.

I envy how you guys can buy and return headphones as you please without any (significant) loss in money. Over here sold means sold, no returns due to hygiene concerns..

I'm facing an annoying issue with my UE 9000. If the headphones are wired and connected to my laptop, while being charged with the USB cable (also attached to my laptop), there is a very clear static audible. I got mine replaced through Logitech customer support and the new ones which I just received have the same issue. Is this happening with all UE 9000s out there? or am I really unlucky?

This happens while you're listening to music through your laptop? Are you sure it's not just your laptop's sound card?

Great review! especially on the UE18.

 

Seems you found the highs on the UE6000s more favorably then I did though. :)

 

Guess I like it just a tad bit brighter.

The UE18 is a special IEM . Glad you liked the review. I though for the money the UE6000 did  well. 

post #805 of 931

Any ideas how to fix this?

     Not sure why you did that in the first place. No matter how durable my headphones were I wouldn't actually do a stress test on them unless it was for a review and i got a free pair.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, I didn't actually do that to my UE9000. It was meant to show what they should be capable of withstanding.

I'm about 6'9'' and broke them by just taking them off my head. :( Pulled the cups off my ears and this **** happend.

     Oh. Well that's interesting. I have stretched my UE6000 out significantly just in day to day use and putting them on and taking them off and they're still fine. Not sure why yours did that. I don't necessarily have a small head either, how long have you had yours?

I was at a garage sale last weekend and saw the UE9000s sitting on a shelf unopened for $60. Didn't really need a pair of headphones but did a quick lookup on amazon - regular price $400? I'll take 'em! After reading through this thread I guess I got a good deal!
