So I was able to find a place out in LA that carries the top of the line Shure SE535LTD Westone 4 and even akg K3003i. i was able to test all of them and honestly, my UE 900'S were better in my opinion (and even the woman's who worked there). They just began selling the new UE line of headphones with the exception of the 900's.
I think having four drivers for me personally makes it sound less, condensed. For example, the SHURE's have plenty of power in my opinion and get very loud and maintain clarity, but the bass is being pumped from the same driver (at least, this is how it sounds) as other sounds - where as in the UE headphones it sounds separated, or less stressed.
The other thing the UE is very good with is noise isolation. I can't hear **** going on in the background with them on (provided, their on right and proper headpiece is on) where as with the Shure's its only able to muffle outside noise because it can get very very loud.
I decided to buy he SE535LTD's because they were the best sounding in a realistic price range (i would never buy the AKG although they were easily the best sounding, though not better in my opinion than the UE's) and will continue testing for a few days. So far though, the UE's win in my opinion without a doubt and I've yet to hear anyone else disagree who I let compare.
Please keep your reccomendations coming because I will probably order some headphones from the internet soon. I've noticed I enjoy headphones that are not tinny (SE's are very very very tinny in their sound) and that are powerful on the bass end, but that the bass is separated from other noises if that makes sense.
