alright don't get me wrong i like the bass of sms 50 cent bluetooth but its mids are not that good, so does the mkII have same bass.

 

also for me shouting headphones and not my choice, so if u raise the volume will the mkII be shouty

It's hard to really compare as you are asking how the MKII compares to headphones we haven't heard before. From what I felt, the MKII has less volume of bass than the UE9000, doesn't go that low in the sub bass and has an annoying mid bass hump. Apart from that, the bass was rich and clean. I'm not sure how warm you like your headphones but I certainly wouldnt describe the MKII as bright or harsh. I thought they were really warm overall.

One's v-shaped (or bassy-warm), and the other is more neutral.  The Harman is the latter.

I'm trying to resist but for under 100.00 refurbished the harmon kardon bt look pretty good, does the battery really last 40 hours? Do they sound similar to the vmoda 100?

Signature is not even close to the M-100...  LOL, the M-100 has a v-shaped signature (UE 9000 is closer to it over BT, but a little thicker with more recessed mids).  As for the battery, I haven't ever timed it, but it lasts me about a month before I have to charge it...  I think, honestly, I don't remember the last time I charged them :p  That's one thing that the BT do extremely well, battery life, it's like the energizer battery, it just keeps going ;)

The MKII had the mid bass hump, but the UE9000 was bass boosted so it had more bass anyway. I preferred the MKII over the UE9000. The MKII is more neutral overall, the UE9000 has a v shaped frequency like @tinyman392 said earlier.

I have no "golden ears" plus I am newbie..:bigsmile_face: Also, never had a UE 9000 either. But, I am on my 2nd pair of Harman Kardon BTs. My first pair was stolen. I quickly ordered another pair.. In addition, they sell for $249.99 on their site,   about $188 on Amazon.. But, the Harman Kardon BT is $97 on the Harman Kardon online site. They are refurbished, and they come with full warranty and money back guarantee. Only missing a retail box. With all that said, the Harman Kardon BTs are great at the price point I paid, $97 shipped. Yes, they have bass, IMO, a good bass too. Plus, they have aptx, and they can go wired too.

 Also, in comparing the UE 9000 to the Sony 1RBT MK2, one must take price into consideration too. The UE 9000 is going for about $270..Where the MK2 is going for $370 to $489. Plus, they are gray market too.  With all that I picked the MK2.. But, that is just me..

Ok so I gotta ask this before I take the plunge on the harmon kardon bt, are these decent for deep house, electronic dance music? I don't want them to distort with bass lines...

It won't distort, or it shouldn't, at normal listening volumes.  They aren't the most bassy phones though...  More linear in contrast to the others.

I can compare the Harman Kardon to the AKG K550, which I returned.. The HK have more bass then those, and the AKG K550 has a fan club..

It has excellent depth and body...  But it isn't bass-heavy per say, very well balanced.  If you're looking for a boom or huge impacts, this isn't the direction to go.  The bass quantity is in between my AKG K845 and (from what was said above) the AKG K550.
