Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread - Page 160

post #2386 of 3629
If wondering if the UE 900 are worth the $300-400 I would say the Ultrasone Ed 8 aren't 10× better than the Se215. And wth are you doing with your cables to have them break after a month?
post #2387 of 3629
I think UE8 worth $1000 max, I had it before but sold it due to comfort issue, but thinking of buying it again or wait for the next revision with the detachable cables.


I take UE900, TripleFi and SE215 to the gym, I run about an hour and lift weights nothing extreme to harm the cable but UE900 cables don't last long as Shure cables. I have 2 pairs of UE900 and I know it's the cable not the driver.



I am not that technically advanced person but there might be some design issue with UE900 connector. Other than that I like UE900, that's why I have 2, smily_headphones1.gif And money wasn't an issue, otherwise I will go with SE215.

are you sure you don't have two so you can have one in each ear? They're mostly sold in pairs ;)

Shure cable is also 3x as expensive as the UE cable. But it's not really an argument that it should break.

Haha, in that sense I have 4, 1 pair for the gym and 1 pair for other occasion.

Ya, I swap cables between SE and UE, so far SE cable works without any problem, smily_headphones1.gif Maybe I should workout less.

Or Meelec S6 for workout?

Wow, I never knew Meelec S6, looks very nice and cheap ! not sure how the sound signature is but I will give an audition.

Thanks for the info !

I say that it might be worth going down in SQ to have a pair that you're not worried about breaking. Exercising with your iems is a good way to break them. smily_headphones1.gif

Yeah I never understood why people bring top tier iems to the gym. The most expensive pair I ever brought was the SE215 LE. I'd recommend a cheap pair like the delta's or S6

It's relative but I don't think UE900 is the top tier IEM compare to other $1k+ iems. I agree with you that I should not use this at the gym but anything below UE900 is muddy IMO so that is my minimum requirement smily_headphones1.gif

But thanks for the tip, smily_headphones1.gif

Ok, anyway you probably want to have some kind of stage monitor or similar. That's made for action and sweat.

Yeah, technically the UE900 isn't top tier with the ultra top tier releases recently, but still - it's rather expensive. I wouldn't bust out my $600 DSLR in the rain when I could use my $100 point and shoot instead. It's just not a good idea. I'm not too sure which IEMS have great clarity and work well at the gym, but I think you can find something with good clarity and decent durability for not too much if you want. Glad you understand :)

Hi, im new user of ue 900. It sound good but i have some issues with them. First i have small ears and the earphones isnt very comfortable for me, im thinking to cut off memory wire, any of you guys try it with ue 900 cable?Im using ue900 with my galaxy s3 + poweramp and blue cable works for pause/play/next track, volume didnt control, but when i try to use ue900 with my laptop + xonar u7(foobar2000), something wrong with it and it sounds **** and very low volume, but with black cable it sound good with pc, but the thing blue wire works great with other laptops/tablets i tried so its very weird, becouse it doesnt work only with my xonar... some myster or what?

There are many phones far cheaper than the UE900s that aren't muddy and much better built
