I stick my reviews there as well, when I get round to it, but I stick them in here so people can ask questions and I can easily answer them etc.
 

May I suggest that you publish your great review by creating a review post in the review section now? (Just click here to get there right now. Magic, isn't it? smile.gif) Once there you can just refer back here using the very same magic, and let people know you want their comments and questions here (which will follow naturally, I think!?). It'll only take you a minute or so. Deal? wink.gif

 

Seriously, as a newbie I had no idea there were so many great reviews scattered around this site, and I only browsed the review section for reviews until I somehow happened to stumble over a review somewhere else. I wish more head-fi reviewers would use the magic features of hypertext transfer protocol. Thanks!

Done mate! I always link them to product pages so you should not have worried. Also no need to be so patrionising!

 

Oh and here is my unboxing. Sorry for the lighting.

Great, thanks! biggrin.gif

 

I'm sorry and I apologies if I came across patronising, that was certainly not my intention. I'm basically a very humble and good person; at least I try to be. I can assure you I'm filled with benevolence. I was just trying to be bit humorous in my writing to get your and other reviewers attention.

Only if there is better stuff out there driving down the UE900 market value down to $200

Yeah this +1

 

I didn't say that I hope UE900 goes down to $100, but even $200 will get me thinking hard, and $150 will be a guarantee - TF10 was about $499 when it was first released, was it?

TF10 was released at the same price as the UE 900, $ 399.  It took the TF10 a few years to drop in price...

Agreed but my guess is if it drops in price it will be due to lack of sales, period, as if it was a bum product.

 

As someone smartley noted a few pages back, it is a big gamble IMHO for Logitech to take their flagship UNIVERSAL IEM and make it so lean on bass weight and impact.  Could be a big turn-off for many.  Hell, I remember when TF10 was released it was lauded as "balanced" compared to SE530 yet UE900 has quite a bit less bass than UE900.  Quite the gamble I would say when you are spending a lot in marketing and that's where Westone seems more awaret of the fact that the vast majority of consumer likes their bass and they seemed to have taken that into account with W4 without overdoing it.  Just an observation....

I really like the sound of just about all aspects of these headphones, but I do listen to a lot of metal so im not sure if i would have a problem with the notes rear-ending each other.

So difficult to decide lol!

There's always a way to test it yourself.  As with anything scientific, it can be reproduced.  Whether it's through objective measurements, or subjective hearing.  The control would be the IEM without modification, the other variable would be the clogging of the small nozzle.  Whether or not it'll make a difference, Rin did a nice job documenting it (despite the fact that I don't agree with all his writing, his measurements will speak this time around).

Hi Swimsonny,

 

I wonder if the UE 900 will suit me if I like the airy/natural/tube-like vocals of the e-q7. But the only gripe I have with the e-q7 is that the upper mids/treble I find grainy/harsh/piercing, so I want to find something similar but with more refined/smooth upper mids/highs but also having good extension as if it reaches faraway. I am looking for something with big/out of head soundstage as if your in a concert hall, but still sort of mid forward as if your sitting in the first row of the performance, but also has good clarity/resolution. I am by no means a bass head so i don't want it to have too much bass (more into mids and treble). Genres of music I listen to are female vocals, rock/metal, classical and some hip hop now and then.  Would they be suitable for me?

Now i have only heard the EQ-5 and from your after i would have to recommend the HiFiMAN RE-272 if you can still pick one up. No IEMs can really do soundstage like you want, some are better but none like a good earbud or headphone that is open. The best 4 BA driver for soundstage and imaging would be the 4.Ai but it is not as good as the Westone 4 or UE900 in the high mids (although i think it is better than both of them overall). Another IEM that would suit you is the MyST Nail 2 V2 which has a bigger soundstage and more deep bass than the 272 but not as much treble presence, but still good high mids. However the MySt is a hard thing to get at the moment and i would jump on a RE272 if you can while it is still barely around.

Swimsonny, this is a good review. I appreciate the effort you put into it. However, I would recommend doing more proofreading before you post. There just too many grammar and punctuation errors. Many letters and words are missing. Some of your points are hard to understand because of this.
