It's bass works very well for most of my music while vocals, stringed, wind, and percussion instruments are so clear and vibrant.

after using the M200 for a week it is like a breath of fresh air to switch back to the UE900.

Could you elaborate on why you still preferred UE 900's sound signature over the M200 please?

More comfortable, better isolation for starters. I also love the detail, Pratt, and signature of the UE900 a bit more. I wish it had a bit more bass like the M200 at times but not to often. In the end I hear more through the UE900 and don't have crank them up to appreciate them.

dweaver, Are how are you listening to your UE900's? Pinholes? Airplane adapter?

No mods or adapters, using the stock single flange tips with either cable. The black is a bit more detailed but I like the convenience of the black.

Ok, I found that too bassy and veiled to my liking. But being able to partially or totally block the pinhole and using the adapter really makes the UE900 a very versatile iem. But since I got them I've come to more and more like the fullness and the bass from them so who knows, maybe I'll try to unblock the holes sometime.

This may have been mentioned before but just a warning for those using an old android (personally a galaxy s (no I don't use it as my phone anymore)) as a source that the iphone cable completely sucked out the mids and bass leaving a really hollow sound. Pressing the middle button creates an instant comparison to what it should be. 

 

It was all a bit of a shock after picking these up at lunch. Now onto the black cable and have my mids back and am enjoying the listening session. It is a nice change from my pair of se425's and will be comparing the two for the one spot in my collection. Fun days ahead :-)

I use mine with a Nokia 920, the blue cable is fine sound wise but the MIC and volume buttons do not work.

Because everybody wants to do Apple accessories... Too bad. Someone should make a small device that takes input from Apple compatible headphones and outputs for example Samsung, Sony or HTC. I don't think that the Android based phones are as picky about the mic buttons and that they should work more across the different brands. Anyway, that's an idea for someone. And by the way, that thing about the mids being sucked out and that pressing the button restored them, it's about you having a phone wired to the old non-apple standard. Now almost all phones use the same wiring, only using different signals from their buttons.

They do...  It's mroe or less just a wiring issue...  MEElectronics makes an adapter.  Most Samsungs are compatible with Apple nowadays, there are a select few that aren't though.

It would be this one: http://www.meelec.com/MEElectronic_TRRS_Adapter_for_P_Version_Headphones_p/adptr-trrs-35.htm

 

I haven't search Amazon, but you can look for it.

I posted my comparison of the UE 900 with the W4R and Sony XBA-40 :)

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/679046/comparison-review-the-quads-westone-w4r-vs-logitech-ue-900-vs-sony-xba-40

 

It also has links to my video reviews.

 

The review is fairly lengthy but I hope you guys find the commentary regarding balanced armatures vs dynamics interesting...

Exactly what I wasn't talking about. It used to be a wiring standard difference between the ground and mic. Now it's a difference in the signal/impulse the mic/volume buttons send. Almost all phones are wired the same. I don't know how to explain it better.

I understand what you are saying, it is only something you encounter on old hardware anyway... just bought it up in case anyone had issues

smily_headphones1.gif that's why it's a business idea to make an adapter. I THINK it would have to be an active kind of thing. So larger and more expensive but if it's sonically neutral, well worth it for us "not-using-that-damn-iphone-anymore-because-micro-usb-is-far-better-because-I-can-easily-get-the-sound-out-through-usb-to-my-dac"-people. When we're not using the DAC of course.
