25 April 2014
Summary: Accessories: Includes a pouch and cable. Pouch is well-built, compact, and stylish. Soft, flexible cable has never tangled for me in my time with it. Right angled jack is durable and well-relieved. Remote is a little plasticky, but works well.
Build Quality/Design: Absolutely fantastic at the price point.
Pros: Fun sound, no bass bleed, outstanding build, incredibly low price, comfortable
Cons: Not crisp enough highs for some, adjustable headband can expand accidentally
Summary: i've had these for a while and use them pretty much exclusively when commuting. i'll occasionally have them on while working if i forget my better headphones but they get painful fast so it never lasts long. if it's not the rock-hard headband digging into my skull, it's usually the stiff pads pinching my ears, and if all else fails the exaggerated highs will give me a migraine. their only redeeming quality is the detachable cable.
Pros: sleek, cheap, awesome cable, clear sound
Cons: uncomfortable cup pads and headband, flimsy adjustment track, lack of detail, very fatiguing
Summary: These days, for $40, there's just not too many good choices out there.
I feel the UE4000 should be a role-model for all the companies wanting to win this market.
First of all, this headphone has an amazing set of features for $40 which includes a detachable cable (super rare), not fully plastic (metal sliders, good foam for the headband), a carrying pouch, a high-quality splitter! With all of the features, I instantly see Logitech won over the crowd.
Pros: Good isolation, solid build, portable form factor, great for outdoor use, bunch of accessories, detachable cable
Cons: Overwhelming bass, lacks detail and clarity, pouch feels thin, can be uncomfortable after a while
Summary: Along with the summary below, I have posted a Youtube video review of the UE4000. If you like the video, check out my channel for more reviews :)
The UE4000, like all the new Logitech UE headphones, has some really nice build quality for the price. Solid feeling headband with metal parts, supple synthetic leather earpads.
Pros: Great build quality, comfortable design, 3.5mm detachable cable
Cons: Congested sound quality, doesn't fold up, earpads not replaceable
Summary: *owned V-sonic VSD3, UE 500, UE 200, klipsch s4a in the past
plastic & metal components. headband adjustment is brushed metal. The ear cups tilt using a pivot mechanism. The headband padding is made of memory foam separated by a soft sheet of rubber.
Overall, it has a great sleek design offered in black, white black, blue, or purple. The black and white black versions have blue accents.
Summary: Without any introduction, here I will start:
Comfort: I wear glasses & I have no problem wearing these! It does get warm after sometime. Clamping force are not too strong.
Isolation: Isolates plenty of outside noise.
Build quality: Mostly plastic.
Sound: HEH HEH! Best on-ear headphone I ever tried. Lows are punchy & well controlled. Better control than HD439 at the same price. Satisfy basshead but it is not as strong as UE6000. Mids are very detailed & smooth sounding.
Pros: Excellent overall audio quality for it's price! Excellent comfort for a pair of on-ear canes
