    [REVIEW] Logitech UE9000 - Ultimate Ears HEADPHONES Released! The UE4000, UE6000 and the UE9000 - Impressions Thread

      No portable amp as of yet, just straight out of my phone for now. Chalk up another one for the wishlist. Very true, going from my Pro 900's to these make me miss my highs but if I'm just listening to these exclusively (outside and whatnot) then it's a non-issue.

    Well I just picked up a pair of UE6000's for $78. Better than expected, going to enjoy commuting with these.

    M50 "Love or Hate"

    I think the M50 is a nice can to start with but feels a little 'jack of all trades, master of none'. The highs didn't extend as much as I wanted them from what I remember but the lows were alright. It felt like a 'headphoney' sound, like the sound was being pumped into your ears. I'm...

    New here... any tips? ATH-M50s

    Quote: Depends on what you consider 'cheap'.  I'm more the save up and buy mid-fi type.

    How to get the best sound out of m50s

    Quote: Get any song you have in 128 and download a 320kbs version and you tell me. It's no comparison really.

    Are you a Basshead? Or a Treblehead? Or a Midrange head? A Flathead? Or....?

    I think I'm firmly in the Treblehead camp. I started my journey with IEMs, starting with V-Moda Vibes and Hippo VB's. Didn't know much about sound back then, so I just went for the bassiest sets I could find. Moved onto full sized cans after that, getting my hands on a Sony XB500. Bass was...

    Ultrasone Pro 900 Impressions Thread

    Quote: Just a tip, put in a [AUS] tag in the title and change the currency to $AUD. Makes searching for fellow Australian buyers easier.

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones

    Quote: Wondered about that as well. I've yet to hear a sound system in a car that actually sounded good.

    Not sure whether I should upgrade or have two pairs of headphones

    Upgrade or side-grade, it's always an issue. * I forgot to mention, there's always the option of upgrading your DAC/Amp as well.

    First pair of Headphones!

    Most closed headphones block out a decent amount of background noise. Shouldn't be an issue, with the exception of a few specific headphones.   EDIT: Beaten

    Best closed Headphones within $300- $450

    OP, I agree with davidsh, there isn't much else we can help you with now. All we'd be doing is going in circles over different headphones and beating around the bush.   In the end, you have to start one way or the other, and since you aren't able to audition any of these mid-fi cans, you'll...

    Best closed Headphones within $300- $450

    Just a little preliminary impression on the K550 without burn in.   The bass is tight but slightly lacking in quantity. It's definitely there though. The mids have a nicer tone than the Pro 900s. They lean more on the 'thinner' than 'full'. Highs are almost sharp, which is saying a lot...

    Best closed Headphones within $300- $450

    Quote: Q/K70x series definitely leak sound.     Is there a closed equivalent of Grados? Would most likely fit OP's music tastes. My K550's will be arriving tomorrow so I can comment on that later.
