Sounds like a good way to advertise them as jewelry (ear candy) for women :P.

If these are for that purpose, then what is this for:

 

 

LOL, sorry, your comment made me think of these.

Needless to say, they look awesome and probably smell awesome too. 

 

Detachable cable may be finnicky. Looks easy to come off seeing that it's a "snap" or direct friction fit rather than any locking system or something to keep it from falling apart. It's not like anyone is going to change cables every day so they should have implemented a better more secure design. 

 

 

They look like the Shure type connectors which are pretty good...

I haven't played with Shure connectors.  However, everyone else on this thread is saying that Shure connectors are horrid.  I haven't had too much problem with these though.  Only the future will tell.

i'd prefer to buy the heir audios but want to purchase from a place with a good return policy if i'm ordering $400 iems.  thus the heir audios are a no go and the 900s are next up, as long as amazon gets em that is.

Buy from Apple they have a good return policy. And they may have
the exclusive for awhile.

I rather like the looks of them. Of course, given that I use Monster Trumpets in public more than any other IEM I'm not exactly opposed to flashy designs. Can't wait to read some TF10 vs. UE900 comparisons. I'm sure the TF10s will lose out on most of them, but I rather like them and am lusting after these 900s a bit so it will be interesting regardless.

What do you guys think about UE900 vs IE80?  What about vs X10i (I know it's a lot cheaper, but this is what I have now)

The Shure connectors on my SE215 has been awesome.  Been tugged on and disconnected so many times at the gym and still going strong.  It had never been disconnected from the unit and cable, only cable and my source.

+1, how does this compare with the competition in its price range?

yes that is correct, especially Westone W4 or 4R because so far Westone is the best (with the highest number of BA) 4 BA IEM.

I'm curious.

I wont tell westones is the best... they are pretty good, but not the best....    Personally i find w4 is very realistic com-paired to Ue900's.. Then again its my opinion :)

My understanding was that the exclusivity period would not be unreasonably long but I couldn't get specifics.  I would guess that it would be a couple of months, which seemed to be tacitly acknowledged, but it's still just a guess on my part.

From what I have heard UE 900 only compeition both price wise and ofcourse sound-wise is Heir 4Ai (if we are only wanting to compare 4 BA vs 4 BA).

Sorry I should have said from the reviews I have read across the net.
