Excerpt: Ultimate Ears has made many fine universal-fit earphones over the years, but the firm is perhaps even better known for its custom-fit in-ear monitors, which are used by working musicians and other music lovers around the world.
Excerpt: Critics of higher end audio say that the further up in the price range you go, you begin chasing demising returns. That is, the more you spend, the less and less of a difference there actually is. But to the most hardcore audiophiles, that pursuit is one worth chasing for ultimate audio nirvana.
Summary: This is my first review so keep that in mind.
I bought a pair used UE 900's at Cex, an electronics resale store in San Francisco. I was cleaning them and pulled the wrong way on the MMCX connector and the freakin' right unit came apart and ripped the internal wires apart.
Pros: Crisp but not piercing highs, adequate bass, good sound stage, Logitech customer support is very helpful and proactive
Cons: mids can seem a little flat time, cheap look and construction
Summary: This is a review of Logitech/Ultimate Ears UE900s multi-driver in-ear monitors. http://www.ultimateears.com/en-us/900s
The original UE900 was my first pair of hi-fi IEMs, the one which opened up my eyes and ears to higher quality multi-driver in-ear headphones.
Pros: great detailed sound, unique look, a TON of eartips
Summary: Switched to these from a TDK BA200 and the difference is phenomenal. I only paid about 80quid more for these than the BA200 with all the discounted sets appearing here and there. The first thing I noticed after getting a good fit was the immense soundstage.
Pros: Comfort and Fit, Soundstage, Detail, Deep bass, SQ
Cons: Putting them on for the first time was a real challenge
Summary: First of all. I'm going to review these based on my listening experiences using a 100 Ohm adapter or from the Out2 of my BH. My pinholes are about 2/3 - 3/4 blocked. I'm using meelec balanced dual flanges and I have elongated the nozzle of my right housing with the tube from a comply TS500.
Pros: Good bass, nice and warm mids, smooth treble, decent layering and sounstage. Appealing looks.
Cons: Very fit dependent, cable swivels and memory wire doesn't hold its shape. Doesn't feel like $400 iems.
Summary: So let me start of with saying this review is geared for people who are trying to decide if buying these is a good investment, from a more average consumer. I am not an audiophile or musician, I just really enjoy music.
Summary: I bought these on a whim and have no regrets. Just let me say wow, I'm just hoping when I get my he-400's they don't get overshadowed. But the ue900's are going to be for work and on the go. I've only had them for less than a day.
Pros: I can find no real flaws, sound is amazing.
Cons: Just had a heck of a time putting them on lol.
Summary: I previously owned UE triple-fi 10pro which was ue's old flagship iem.
Just got them today and this ue900 has a lot of improvement.
First thing is isolation. Tf10 has medium level isolation comparing to
Shure’s or Westone iem
However Ue900 now provides a way better isolation than tf10.
