SO confused, which one will give you more detail presentation with nice balanced across the most genre:W4, CMK1000 or UE900? Thanks, so lost!

Tough call.  Both the W4 and UE900 sounded equally good but different based on tests, but I will have to say that the CMK1000 should give you a less stylized sound.

Can't comment on the CMK1k, but I can do W4 and UE900.  I'd have to say that the W4s are a little better than the UE900s with detailing.

I found the UE900 brand new for 349 AUD, but i rather save up and by the W4 than to compromise on the SQ.

 

Thanks.

Penrith store is the only one in NSW which has them in stock. If you dont mind a 1-2 hour drive go for it.

Anyone can comment on the sound on both the stock cables? Does it sound exactly the same or what?

From what i remember SM3 has a bigger bass, UE900 has a better tonal balance and coherence from top to bottom

I'm hearing a lot about this tiny bass hole bore. I still have a few days to return mine, so what's the best way to temporarily block the hole to see how they sound?  If it's tape, what kind?  I'm not so sure I want to lose even 1db of bass.  The reason I got UE900 was I thought they would beat out the W4's and the Heir 4.ai for my tastes.  I thought the soundstage would be wider then the other two and have an overall less aggressive sound than the Heirs.  I read a review saying that the UE's were slightly V shaped but not aggressively so. All of which seemed to ring true for me.  I like the Phonak PFE-232's a lot, but they were just way too V shaped for me and aggressive with the treble.  They did bass perfectly though.  So if the bass goes on the UE's  .  .  .  What I'd really like is the UE900 sound with Phonak bass.  Or maybe W4's with Phonak bass.

I don't think there's another IEM with similar bass like PFE 232.

 

The UE900 are aggressive, but the Heir sound harsher. The UE900 play directly into your face, but their upper mids/highs are so well done that it never sounds lacking or harsh. This is where they outperform the 4.Ai, IMO... and also flatter bass, so actually all-around more cohesive (YMMV). No idea where you get the v-shape from because if anything, most people are claiming the Logitech is warm.

Bass quantity will become noticeably less.

 

For your preference, I think you should consider an EQ. I also know somebody who loves his PFE but he uses the FiiO E17 with -2 dB on both ends. Not a dramatic change, but I agree that it sounds better that way.
