They are really comfortable, what amp are you using?

I have recently watched two movies with them (in noise-canceling mode) on a long airplane flight.  Very usable in that mode as well as being my nightstand headphone for listening to FM radio. What some people find to be their main weakness, a shelved down treble, is a strength for those two uses.

No portable amp as of yet, just straight out of my phone for now. Chalk up another one for the wishlist.

Very true, going from my Pro 900's to these make me miss my highs but if I'm just listening to these exclusively (outside and whatnot) then it's a non-issue.

+1 for the great experience on inflight entertainment system with these cans. They really shine in this setting, as a matter of fact it's the only use they get from me.

Edit: I'm talking about the ue6000.

Just picked some up (ue6000) for $30. Not bad. Lack of treble is a turnoff and even though ANC boosts it, it also boosts the bass way too much. In passive mode they are OK, still a bit bass heavy but at least it's punchy and doesn't bleed into the mids much. My biggest gripe is with comfort. They are heavy and the earpads are small for me. Great portable headphone not so much for at home listening. It looks awesome obv.

20140712_145408_zpso9wbt3nb.jpgFor anyone who has a cracked headband they can't replace under warranty I taped a strip of metal onto the headband to repair it (used the box as a mold to get the right curvature) and then covered the whole headband with tennis racket grip tape. It's made quite a tidy job which is unnoticeable when you're wearing them.

I forgot to add, once you take the ear piece off, you don't need to use double sided tape really, because there's groves on the actually headphones that it grips under. Logitech done it on purpose! Also I noticed there's a slight hiss when using it while on charge, has anyone come across this?? Might be the faulty battery so will try another one soon

Just out of interest, how did you get the pads off and where did you get a replacement battery from?
Cheers

Check my post out and video:

The pads use double sided thin tape, just use a hair dryer to get it off but make sure you don't apply too much heat on the pad. The battery is on the left ear piece You can get a Replacement battery anywhere. eBay have it. I got a 3.7v 1500mAh battery coming. Only cost £6. Also once you remove the pad, there's no need to apply double sided tape because the ear piece has a clip for the pad to clip under. I find out earlier

Forgot to mention, make sure you get a 3.7v battery and it can be any mAh, as long as the dimensions of the battery is the same. You could mod the battery slot and cut it away, to fit a big mAh battery if you wanted too

Lately my UE6000 have gotten pretty squeaky on the pivot point on the cups. Anyone else having this issue?

Squeeze a drop washing up liquid or other liquid soap in there, that'll sort it out.
