I just wish they were more publicly accepted, shame on me for caring what people think). About the ue6000's again, I couldn't move the switch though, or i wasn't moving it the right way, or it was broken. Anyways, youre saying it has more bass when off or on?
Also, I bought the ATHPRO700mk2's on amazon since I hear they are good about returns, and I also got an e11. So I will be able to compare the 2. And are you sure an amp won't benefit the ue6000's much?
When the UE 6000 or at least when MY UE 6000 has the "green light" on it's got gobs of bass in my opinion! I don't think it needs an amp since the Active noise controll colors the sound so much BUT if you wanted more bass out of them, a Fiio E11 should be more than enough to drown yourself with bass!
And BEst Buy should have a pretty nice Return policy. Buy them new and try them that way, those demo models at best Buy usually have some damage to them and don't really offer the best sound. To mny ppl touching them chances are there could be some minor internal damage honestly. So Try buying a new one and compare the UE 6000 +e11 TO THE ProMk2+E11 and let us know which you prefer :3
And I found the UE 6000 to be... a joke without the Active Noise Cancellation On. When it is on there is a green light on the headphone. When that green light is on it's imo sounds much MUCH better, also the switch is on the left ear cup when you turn it on, the headphone should go silent for a second, then the sound will return. A little louder and a lot bassier!
And for my tastes the UE 6000 has a bit to much quanity, I would enjoy them a smidge more with less bass honestly, a little less Boom and a little more DIG to the bass. Like bass in terms of a Solid Mas object, it's a heavy bass but the bass is to my ears not to dense... I'd like little less bass quanity with the same authority. My W1000x had a GREAT bass [imo] with J$ Pads, but that's about $450 headphone +pads
Non the less, compare the ProMK2 and UE 6000 and see which you like more! I do hear the ProMK2 is a little darker where as the UE 6000 is a little brighter
