Excerpt: Great to use for airplane travel, really cuts down on the engine noise, also great for listening to the music or listeneing to a movie aboard...a life saver if traveling with or you happen to sit next to screaming kids ....imagine 8 hour flight from London with 6 screaming babies in the economy seating section..these were HEAVEN!
Summary: Great overall headphones. Audio is crisp, low range heavy, and mid range very clear. For the price I really don't think there is much comparable. Only 2 things to keep in mind: 1. Noise cancellation goes through batteries pretty quickly 2. Leaks a lot of sound. I feel awkward blasting some loud stuff in quite areas such as work or library etc.
Summary: I really wish that I could give these headphones 5 stars. They really have an amazing sound too them. The bass is heavy enough for the best bass head, and the mids and highs are pretty good. Despite this, I cannot give it 5 stars. I can't being to describe how annoying it is that the stupid cord keeps coming out either fully or partially. It slightly comes out, and then the sound goes out in one ear. Sometimes I push it up and it comes right back down.
Summary: Sound - Let's start off with the most important category.The sound is so smooth and warm, like a warm glass of milk. It's really quite comforting. They really work well with most genres. In Radiohead's "I Might Be Wrong", the bass line tickles the left ear with depth and decent detail, while the guitar occupies the right side with intimacy. While the snare sounds a little dull and Thom's vocals seem lacking in texture and timbre, it is not at all offensive.
Summary: I picked these up for $50 (compared to $69 for the CAL! or $99 for the CAL!2).
They are a bit heavier and clamp a bit tighter than the CAL!
Removable cable is a plus, but a cable without a remote would have been appreciated.
They sound pretty good without the ANC turned on. Vocals are a little recessed. Good separation and detail. maybe a bit too much treble. Not as loud as the CAL! louder with ANC on and more bass, but reduced quality.
Summary: So I very recently started listening to ue6000, so these are early impressions. I must say these very well match my dark sound preferences. I am enjoying these quiet a lot.
Very good looking. Though made out of plastic so not very robust construction. Will require good care.
They are closed back and they do get sweaty. Cups are not very big so pads or inner cloth may touch your ears.
Summary: Never thought a headphone can be separated. All the sections of the songs never blend into one big mush of a sound. The mids were muffled a little, but still sounded amazing. The bass sounded like the drum was playing right in front of me. The highs were so good that I almost enjoyed a song i dislike so much. Overall, this headphone is the BEST sounding headphone in all price range. Undiluted audio as UE states, it is was it is. However, the sound leaks too much.
Summary: It has been over a month now since I bought this headphone. I believed that Noise Cancellation was great, but was quite disappointed by how it endured poorly as I can hear someone talking to me about 10 feet away. However, it did, in fact, drone out the low rumble frequency, but I am still not satisfied. The reviews claimed to be comfortable headphones, except on CNET. CNET told the truth about the headphones being heavy and how it can get uncomfortable.
