post #46 of 2926

the price seems vary depends on location, I think. when I check the UE US website, it's about 400 USD ( which is about 500 SGD ) . however, when I see on UE SG site, it's about 600 SGD .. woa. .100$ . may be, they include all the shipping, tax etc.  blink.gif

Weird. Couldn't find it on the logitech u.s. website when I looked - maybe I was on the main logitech u.s. site by accident? It was definitely listed at 599 Australian dollars on en-aus.

Maybe they are acknowledging the fact that the U.S. is going broke...way to throw a bone, UE. But $599 in Australia? Strange.

Do you guys reckon it'll be cheaper on earphonesolutions.com when this comes out? Or would the logitech store be the cheapest place to buy this?

I'm pretty much sold - just waiting on some reputable reviews. The $399 price tag is on par with shure and westone triple drivers!

 

and the Australian prices incorporate taxes. still pretty high though

These have me excited!  Love the UE sound signature (I am currently using UE700s) but never got the TF10s due to the fact I would have never gotten a decent fit in my left ear, these look like they would be better fitting.  Gonna have to wait to see how the actual street prices shake out though, if they can get below $250, I will probably jump on this (pending reviews of course).

Would you not just get the Heir 4.Ai knowing they are $399 and have good review? I mean hopefully i will see how these compare but they may be on the same level as the 4.Ai but it'll be very hard to be better (and these do not look as nice).

popcorn.gifsubscribed. These look good. Liked the tf10's, but had fit issues when on the move. Now to wait for comparisons between the 4ai's and the pfe232's.

I'm going to go out on a limb an predict that the Heirs will still reign supreme after all is said and done.

 

Why do people keep spreading false information. The UE 900's are not $600. They are $400 which is the same price as the Heir 4Ai's.

The first UE page to update with the new range was the Australian one and they had a price of $600 there!

I hope you do compare the 4.Ai and the 900s without these preconceptions about how they 'might' sound.

in europe it is 399 EUR so 399 $ US will be quite likely

I think I know which "review" your talking about, if I'm correct it wasn't really a review but second hand information of a comment made at a mini-meet. I'm not sure how much stock to put in it, to be honest, I found it rather odd because that the originator of the supposed comment participated in the thread yet said no such thing in the impressions he posted.
