I have some Klipsch s4s which fit great; I'd upgrade to the x10 for comfort but I hear the wire splits over a few months of use. Right now I'm looking at Livewire dual driver customs, which is cheaper than some multi-armature  (@ $269 + impressions&shipping) universals albeit only having two drivers.

The UE900 got 4? :p

post #890 of 3604

that was appealing thing to me... But honestly I'll settle for two drivers in customs haha

So am i :D

but still, 4 sounds better ;) 

Also looked at livewire, they seem nice also.

which one is better? the UE900 or the westone 3? I want a good bass that doesn't damage the mids and highs. for electronic music!

post #893 of 3604

Isn't the W3 a bloated bass monster among balanced armatures? The UE900 rivals the W4 and is easily better* than the W3.

 

*Better as in "good bass that doesn't damage the mids and highs."

Wow, these UE 900's have really piqued my interest. The only problem is now I don't know which to get...Westone 4, Heir audio 4ai or UE 900...I listen to rock and classical music extensively. Which of the three would best suit my musical tastes? I know that the Westone 4 brings out great vocals but that's not to say that the 4ai or UE900's are bad in that aspect, right? Additionally, which of the three would have largest sound stage? I know that tinyman compared the westone 4 to the ue900 but I'd love to read some comparisons between the 4ai and the ue900's!

I can't speak about the 4.Ai (hopefully I will be able to soon ;)).  Between the Westone 4 and UE 900, for the application you are using it for (rock and classical), I'd say the UE900 may be the better choice.

I see, well, just to clarify, the vocals on the UE 900 are still very good, right? Also, does the UE 900 have a sturdy build quality? Oh yeah, one more thing. Does the UE900 need an amp or benefit greatly from one? I usually go ampless on my cowon J3 and I wanted to make sure that it is sufficient

Pretty stylish buds with a pretty stylish price! How's the sound stage compared to UE TF10?
