Have two UE6ks.. why I don't know.. maybe waiting to gift one to a cousin or friend eventually. You want to trade? 2 for 1?
I've just sold a pair on eBay, £150 seems to be the going rate. Sadly these are my keepers I'm afraid. I previously owned the 6000 and sold them as soon as I got these as they don't compare at all despite what people say. Hope you find some, pairs with broken headbands sell really cheap and are not that hard to fix if you don't mind what they look like too much.

Would anyone say the UE6000 sounds like the Klipsch S4 iem since they have that bassy recessed treble sound? I'm seriously considering the UE's but the talk of dull, recessed and boring treble worries me. I've tried the Klipsch S4 and thought they were terrible due to the underwater blanket-covered sound of the high frequencies. Its either these UE6000 or the TDK ST-750 for me which seem to be the polar opposite with super bright treble.

That's odd, if anything the S4 have too much treble. They were very sibilant for me. The UE6000 have plenty of treble in active mode and recessed treble in passive mode.

There was a number of diffetent drivers used in the S4 over the years. The early ones were very sibilant and slightly harsh but imo the later ones were v shaped in their response but more refined in their highs. Comparing to something like a Grado they could be considered veiled but as budget iems I always found them quite dynamic and fun sounding

Due to all the positive reviews of the S4 i suspect i may have had fakes. They did have the correct basic freq response though so its hard to guess. Compared to my usual Panasonic RP-HJE900E IEM's the S4 were shockingly dull and completely missing musical parts of the high end in some Cocteau Twins tracks that i simply was unable to find no matter how closely i listened. I may be immune to sibilance and certainly favour a neutral to bright signature.

They have positive reviews in the consumer world, but I think on headfi they've always been seen as a pretty mediocre iem. I certainly thought they were overpriced when I got mine and quickly sold it off, but as was mentioned maybe they had a bunch of different iterations or maybe I was the one with the fakes. Who knows
