I just bought UE 900's coming from my Sennheiser HD555's. I don't know if it's just me, but I can't stand them. It hasn't been a full 24 hours yet and I've already gone back to my Sennheisers. Is there something I'm missing here? Here are my gripes.
1. Given all the tips, I couldn't find any that were comfortable. This wasn't my main concerns because I was going to get custom molded tips for them anyways. Maybe I'm just spoiled because I have custom molded ear plugs for sleeping at night?
2. Microphonics were horrible. It was nauseating to here cable noise to this extent from even the smallest movement like a head tilt. I've done quite a bit of research into IEM's and I'm aware of microphonics being an issue. The UE 900 got consistent positive reviews on the fact that the microphonics were minimal. If this is a good IEM in regards to microphonics I don't know what would be considered bad. Yes they were nice and snug and the cables were run around the ear. Can someone shed some light on this?
I really wanted to like these, but I don't think it's just this particular set of IEM's, but IEM's in general. Things I liked were the isolation. I heard new sounds that were otherwise unnoticed.
So, I ask: Is this not for everyone or should I try to give another pair a try? Or possibly shell out some money for the custom molds to see if a proper fit will remedy microphonics (I actually think this will make it worse due to the tighter seal)?
