Just got my Logitech delivered and gave it a try. Here are some of my initial findings.
1)Just out of the box this headphone SUCKS. Sound was quite bad. Veiled and no lowend and highs was non existent. Weirdmess hearing details that doesnt seem to be part of the music. Sound was quite dead and boring. After 9 hours of playing music on it...it gets better. Esspecially the low end comes to life. Now is acceptable and can understand why people who likes bass likes the sound.
2)It's mentioned before but the cable doesnt seem to work with my Venturecraft amp. Works perfect with my iphone though. This is terrible. The bass in it just begging for some of my GD03 touch. I think it has to do with the iphone capable cable. Really a mistake of not having a normal cable included like vmoda The sound out of the amp is really low level.And when i push the volume starts to distort. Something seriusly wrong.( i think this could be problematic with other non apple products and maybe teh reason people mention the defects on the UE6000)
I tried using the extension cable of my Qjays. Also the included duo stick. Same result.
3)To be honest when using with my Iphone 3gs the sound is really impressive...so much lowend. Unamped makes your apple product sound awesome.
When i compare the HM5 to the UE6000 I can understand the meaning of seperation and soundstage. Big difference between them. Like light and day...literally. The UE6000 is dark. Sennheiser like. While the HM5 is light and airy. UE 6000 seems congested to me. Ofcourse this is just after 9 hours...hope it will improve. I miss the airness and the highend a bit.
4) The bass is not perfect like the wooduo. It goes low, but misses the slam/thump and quickness. I can understand why people call this bass lover can. Not notice bassbleed. Its bass not bloated or overbearing to mids. The vocals on male and female are good if bit warmish.Male vocals seems to shine with it.I can see why this is so popular as an all round headphone for modern music.
5)The NC really changes the soundsignature as expected. Not only a bass boost, but the highs are pushed up noticeble. When switching it on and off...when tunrned off it stops working, or only 1 side is working. Sent a message to UE about this. Defect or what.
6) Comfort is real nice. But the earpads a bit small. My lower earlobes rest on the earpads. What is the influence of this? No sweating. There is hardly any clamping force so I can see why people recommend this headset for larger heads.Real comfortable. But tbh the HM% is better. So sturdy...you cab even sleep in it..using it as a pillow,. lol
7) I can say right now it's the best headphone that i have for my apple products unamped.
edite 8) I have a strange issue. When i have played the last song of an album/folder on my Iphone. And i select anotehr folder or album..I don't hear any sound from the headphone. Have to remove the connector from headphone input on iphone t have it working again. Weird!! never had this happen with any headphones before. I am using it in passive mode.
Anyway that was it...if I decide to keep it...will give further review.
Hopefully you can help me with some of my issues:
the cable issue. Worth it to buy a seperate one on ebay? Are the 2$ ones any good? Asking UE if they have a normal one.
Is my UE6000 defective? Losing sound is pretty shocking. Never had that before with any of my other headphones.
Think it's better to buy a headphone that is truly over ears and fits me well.
