So it snowed about 2cm and all of London came to a stand still so I get to "work" from home . That means we play FarCry 3 and start drinking at 2 as opposed to 4.
Hmmm... my new source search resumes with a bit of a push then but I still have this desire to get hold of the SM2/SM3s!
Just an update, flattening the EQ works wonders and I find it is more irritating when the phones are "cold" and not used i.e. in the morning. After leaving it playing all day again (now approx 50hours of burn in I believe) it has reduced - not completely but noticeably. There shouldn't be a need for burn in with BAs right...I presume burning the cable in then. Thankfully I haven't had the jack problems others have suggested.
I can get up to about 30 without any clipping with normal pop/rap music and still 27 with quieter music. I can live with it, I hope the "wear in" continues!
Other things I've noticed: with the M1Dac -> e9 -> UE900, my problem is more prominent with high gains. Works much better with low gains, yes the attack isn't there but it's quite a ...
"mature" sounding phone meaning timing is good, not overly attacking, not dark but very well rounded. A jack of all trades compared to my past IEMs. I guess this headphone is designed around portable use.
Thanks for the tips and discussion! I'll be following this to see what others think of the UE900s. A confession; I think I'm judging these a bit too quick.
