Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread - Page 157

post #2341 of 3656

Just recived my UE 900 yesterday. Compared to TF this sounds more natural, with better mid and high. Bass seems to be more accurate and precise but with less "punchy" to my ears.

This are not burned-in as TF but the overall sound quality is better and absolutely top-notch. I think this is a more audiophile sounding headphones. 

the comfort has been improved a lot, just like the astonish cables, really pretty, wich tend less to tangle and with great performance!

 

What a GREAT headphones!

What's the easiest way to cover up the hole for more bass?  tape?  How much bassier does it get?

post #2343 of 3656

Some surgical tape that you use to tape wounds. I don't know where YOU can get it but I got it at a pharmacy. Probably the easiest.

Doesn't covering up the hole reduce the bass?

post #2345 of 3656
Yes it does. It reduces what I think is a bloated bass and helps a bit with unveiling the mids. If you think that the UE900 has the right amount of bass, don't block the pinhole.

ROTFLMAO!

 

I was trying to INCREASE the bass.   For a quad driver I thought is was pathetic.  I thought TFPro10 bass was about right.  To regress from that is disastrous.  Throw in a badly rolled off treble and you have a really bad IEM.  Just buy an ER4 for $100 less and be done with it

each to their own I guess but I thought blocking holes made the phone more neutral and made the mids less veiled. It was an improvement for me because the mids were getting on my nerves at one point

As for the cables I don't know anything. I use the stock black cables but I've thought about trying something else. If you buy any of those, please report if there are any differences :)

 

Absolutely, I will.  Planning to order this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-2m-Handmade-Cable-Remote-For-Shure-se535-se846-ue900-earphone-Iphone-Samsung-/281150843547?pt=US_MP3_Player_Cables_Adapters&var=&hash=item4175e56a9b and a few other ones from this seller.  They look pretty cool.  As soon as I receive it, I will review them and let you know how it sounds!

@twister6 I think its better to let the pinhole fill up naturally. I found it pretty interesting of the sound change it gos threw, Almost like having or experiencing different iem before getting the final sound change. If you just cover it up with tape or something you won't experience this. As far as how do I know if I have a new or old model that's been improve there no way of knowing for sure but checking the batch number and waiting to see if anything gos wrong or not. My pair has a slight design change from the older batch but I'm not sure what's that's about and it seems like I was the only one who received one like that on this form

Doing that is pretty irreversible. Taping is reversible. If you don't like the sound when it's filled up with wax, then it's harder to clean that out than to remove a piece of tape. Just good to know.

Hi everyone.  New to the UE 900 party.  Unfortunately straight from the box my pair has a severe channel imbalance.  Mostly in the lower frequencies.  Bass is skewed to the extreme left.  While the other frequencies aren't quite as extreme they are definitely weaker on the right side.  Overall the imaging is most definitely ruined and I'm pretty disappointed with the QC of logitech and my new purchase.  Do all of you think this is a sufficient reason for Logitech to replace my pair.  I'm not sure what their warranty process is like, or what to expect from their customer service.  Just seeking some advice from all you experienced owners.  They're from batch number 1234 btw.

Nuoooooooo I'm really sorry for you!

 

I think you should contact logitech as soon as you can and listen to them.. if they won't replace them you can still being refunded.

Clean cable connection areas with q tip an rubbing alcohol. Some had reported connection static issues and debris on connections messing things up. Your condition sounds more serious but worth a shot.

I am close to wearing out my Monster Supertips for the UE900.

 

Would you guys recommend buying another pair, or going for a custom mould?
