UE6000 are a steal at <100$ IMO. I do hear some similarities between UE6000 passive and UE900 stock.

I have to agree, it is a steal for under $100, I guess due to being discontinued as well.  Logitech US website doesn't even list UE4000/6000/9000 anymore, not even UE600.  Only UE900 are listed in there, but as we all know those are being phased out too.

 

Regarding B&W P7, it's not a replacement for UE900.  If anything, I would consider P7 to be an enhanced version of M-100 with better mids and treble.  It's not an audiophile accurate headphones (you car read Tyll's review on IF), but their sound and look soooo good!  After more hours I put on these, the mids improved (not as recessed anymore), and treble shines.  At the same time, bass is still very strong.  Perhaps you might want to look into Senns over-ear Momentum?  I tested those a few months ago and really liked their sound signature.  I just wish their earpads had a bigger opening, it was smaller than average over-ear design.

 

Also, if you have extra cash, imho W40 has an edge over UE900 (better bass quantity, warmer sound, less ear fatigue over extended listening).

I recently got myself a pair of UE900 for pretty cheap (it was some error on the retailer part and they gave me a bigger discount then advertised).  I find it pretty good and it does have a noticeably improvement over the TF10 in some aspects.  But I do find it the bass on them still need a bit help from EQ boost to get it to where I like them.  When I do get a chance, I'll see if I can go to a headphone shop in town to see if the W40 is any better.

You will find a higher quantity of bass listening to W40 in comparison to UE900.  Btw, I would strongly recommend FiiO's RC-SE1 replacement cable, either for UE900 or W40.  Although there is some cable noise (microphonics), the sound quality improvement is significant.

Ok, ya sure. I'll give that a try.

Don't know what Mr.Diaz was using when he said that UE 900s aren't being discontinued, but the whole page containing UE consumer earphones got removed both from the EU and US versions of Logitech's website.

And as from my last post containing an email from a Logitech representative, we can strongly agree that QC issues was the reason that killed the UE flagman UE 900.

It's up on the EU website?

They are not available for a few months now. From a company such as UE/ Logitech I am expecting some communication on their website  to tell us what the heck is going on. These are $400 earphones, the flagship and if they gonna issue a UE900 rev. 2 or something after such a short period of time it's just not right for the folks who purchased the UE 900 not too long ago. 

Having said that though, I bought mine on a heavy discount and enjoy them.

I'm contemplating if I should return my ue900s and wait to see if they release a v2 or a new flagship iem. Wat do u guys think. I'm so confused with all these conflicting reports about the 900s discontinued or still in production, that I don't know what to do.
post #2730 of 3656

Why would you return the UE900 if you like them? Only because there will be a follow up, which may take another couple of months for release. If I'd do that with my IT stuff I can switch week in week out.
