I have the ue6000 since last year February when is going for 200. I used it almost every week days on passive mode. I'm really happy with the headphone and still using it now. Build quality is great, most importantly is sounds beats most of its competitor at this price point.
It is a little heavy with 2 triple A batteries. It shouldn't be a big problem. The earcup is really big. It fits really nicely. If you don't use noise-cancelling mode, the headphone can run without batteries. It is light enough that you wont feel any pressure your head. Noise-cancelling mode is simply a bass boost switch.. I prefer using it on passive mode.
