It's not as powerful, but I still hear/feel sub-bass extension.  It adds a nice weight to a bass kick.

Are these better sounding than the Shure 535?

post #2808 of 3781

Not sure about the Shure 535, but I had the previous Shure flagship and i thought that the high end treble was veiled

 

It was a beautiful sounding mid range but a very veiled / attenuated high end.

After trying Etymotic, Shure and UE, I settled on UE Triple.fi because I liked it full range (but a U shaped) sound signture.

 

Maybe thats the reason why I am liking my UE900 more than the W4Rs

My cosmic ears reshelled UE900s are in the post.  Excited.  Phil however did measure the IEMs before and after the process, and in fact ended up building his own crossover for the drivers.  Essentially, the UE900 doesn't measure well.  Big drop in treble, slight drop at the lower end too.

 

Yellow is the original, blue is the reshell with custom crossover.

Those look like raw measurements...  http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/LogitechUE900.pdf

Anyone recommend tips, I have Comply but not really feeling them. I like something like Sony Hybrid, but was wondering if there is a trusted seller on Ebay you guys use?

post #2812 of 3781
I tried the Sony hybrid tips. Didn't like them. I do like the largeest tips supplied with the UE900 though.

I was looking to buy Hybrids as well, and someone recommend to me this link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/221359995616 but I haven't pulled a trigger yet since I don't know if they will fit UE900 or W40?

post #2814 of 3781
Ok my bad, those are the ones I have and tried. I should try them again I suppose, there's no reason why they shouldn't work well. I just preferred the included silicone tips.

Edit...I think we are speaking of the same... http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57057

Hybrids fit UE900. Though I don't think they give the best sound. Awesome bass though. Sensorcom biflanges work well with UE900. Meelec balanced as well.

Hi, I just wondered if an owner of the ue900 could help me out with a query about mine. When I look down the left sound tube I see what looks like a red acoustic filter (like the ones in the triple fis) However, in the right side there is nothing at all. Is this normal or has the previous owner been over zealous in cleaning and accidentally removed the filter? Thanks

I have red filters in each side. But, one looks like it is perpendicular to the bore. The RH side looks like it wasn't properly fitted and is just bunched up in there.

 

I should have stayed away from head-fi! I loved these before I started reading about them. Hah.

 

Never noticed the difference in filter placement on mine until I saw your post!

Looking at my new pair (less than 1 hour) - the insides of the large tubes look identical.

Are you the first owner?

Yes, first owner. I do really love them, just some teething issues I suppose.
