Ultimate Ears UE 900 Discussion and Impressions Thread - Page 176

post #2626 of 3549

Managed to pick up a pair for a pretty good price in Australia just yesterday.

 

My second IEM's after some Etymotics and I am finding the comfort and fitting astoundingly pleasant and easy in comparison. Only tried the tips that were already on them so far.

 

Sound is quite good straight out of ipod but a bit nicer out of CLAS and amp.

 

I have an ALO RX-Mk2 and Mk3b+ but these things actually sound nicest out of my old Cmoy. Smooth and fun. Although adding some bass with the bass knob on the Mk3b+ is also nice.

 

Enjoying so far!

I really want to try these but I'm afraid of the crummy build quality ..how close are these to the sound of my w4r's ?? Or should I just stay away ?

The build quality can actually be pretty good, depending on when yours was made. Mine are in perfect condition after a month of heavy use. The sound quality is very comparable to the W4R, it rivals very well and stand at the same level of sonic quality/performance. IMO.

Only problem with UE900 is the cable and the connector. They have the same connector as Shure IEM but the sound cuts often. Not sure the newer UE900 fixes this issue.

I have two UE900 and both having the sound cut problem. frown.gif, going to order W4R soon when price drops more ^^.

Just got these silver plated cable from ebay. Funny that I enjoy it more direct form my iphone or ipod. It's sound faster, crispier and more detailed. But due to the bass tighten up, you loose some of the sub bass.

You should contact Logitech if you have sound problems. They're pretty known for being very liberal with shipping new ones.

If anyone has very small ear canals, what I did was de-core a set of small Comply TX100s. This is pretty much the closest thing you can get to having no tip at all. But it fits nicely now.

post #2638 of 3549
The filter is attached to the core right? So it's basically the same as T100 when decored? Some people say that decored olives are more neutral in sound presentation. The decored comply tips tend to darken the sound a bit. If you also have olives or are willing to try, please report smily_headphones1.gif

But comply tips are very nice to use for various applications.

Yes the filters are attached to the core which I didn't know before buying them. To be honest IMO, the 100s de-cored are so small and soft that they basically do not affect the sound because the nozzle of the earphone almost reaches the end of the tip. I don't have any olives as they are too large and hard to be comfortable.

 

Sony hybrids also fit on the 900s and definitely help out with the bass especially the larger (blue?) sizes.

Ah ok! I found the Hybrids (MH1) to boost the bass, give the upper mids a bit of a push forward but shrink the soundstage significantly. Still, pretty good frequency response but so narrow sounding.
