Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"DETAIL:not the best, I prefer Audio Technica and Sennheiser and AKG, but UE are close second."
_
"Not sure if this is true for all bluetooth headphones of just those with the same protocol as this model, but when using the terrible microphone, the audio can only be transmitted in mono, which gives terrible sound."
_
"Now for the 3-start rating, this headset is unique in several ways but one feature I really wanted (considering the price too) was a solid headset with a microphone and this one was not only bluetooth and had good reviews on audio quality but also had a set of microphones!"
_
"Watching videos is annoying too because the audio is out of sync."
_
"I was worried about wireless cutting in and out and the audio levels changing but I found I could easily move about the house and go into multiple rooms with no loss in quality."
_
"I have had these for almost two years, and while the audio quality for listening to music is quite good, they have some major drawbacks."
_

Battery

Battery:
"The UE 9000 has pass through circuitry to allow music to be played even when the headphone battery is dead which is a huge plus."
_
"Inexplicable low-battery warnings very shortly after being fully charged, sometimes this is corrected by restarting the PC (I only use these with my laptop).Charging problems - sometimes the battery will be drained, and after being plugged for charging (via either a USB port on my laptop or via the included wall charger) it will indicate a full charge after just minutes."
_
"The battery is very confused, at least with my pair of headphones."
_
"Battery life is as stated, about 10 hours, not great but decent."
_
"The ONLY problem I have with them is battery life."
_
"They claim they don't actually have replacement batteries (so beware!"
_
"4.0 would've expanded the bandwidth of information allowing for higher quality sound as well as better battery life and stronger wireless connection."
_
"Sound is phenomenal in all ranges, battery life is great and has a good warning when running low, easy to charge with microUSB."
_
"- Rechargable battery is so good."
_
"so far the best battery in a headphone."
_
"I have absolutely no problems with hissing, battery charging or low battery warnings."

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"Not sure if this is true for all bluetooth headphones of just those with the same protocol as this model, but when using the terrible microphone, the audio can only be transmitted in mono, which gives terrible sound."
_
"The problem here is that Logitech claims 10 hours of life through bluetooth."
_
"First deception was huge, Bluetooth music is not compatible with my phone, a Galaxy Note3."
_
"Now for the 3-start rating, this headset is unique in several ways but one feature I really wanted (considering the price too) was a solid headset with a microphone and this one was not only bluetooth and had good reviews on audio quality but also had a set of microphones!"
_
"-- The wireless sound, thru Bluetooth, is good but it's only when you connect to wired that you realize how compromised BT is for this."
_
"Great sound quality, the bluetooth works perfect, not heavy, very comfortable, and nice looking."
_
"Best set of bluetooth headphones I've used."
_
"I've started my quest for the best sounding and portable Bluetooth Headphones some months ago."
_
"In my thread Huge Comparison of [almost] all the best Bluetooth Headphones in Head-Fi you can see which ones (and read about my methodology of testing headphones).My aim is not to convince anybody in buying or not buying this or any other product."
_
"Soon it became a sort of hobby and passion and I've tested almost all the best Bluetooth Headphones available."
_
"They have great sound, good range for bluetooth (they go much further in a full-sized home with walls than the second generation Logitech UE Mini Boom, as an example)."

Cable

Cable:
"Unfortunately, you have to use the cord with the power off but they do sound great...and you're internal iPod EQ works great."
_
"I also owned the Logitech UE 6000 which had excellent sound but the connection for the audio cable was way too lose and kept falling out at the lightest touch, whereas the Logitech UE 9000 has a very solid connection that doesn't disconnect easily even when pulling on the cable, so that by itself is a huge improvement."
_
"I already own the UE4000 headphones and absolutely love them but no matter how good the headphones are there was always the pesky cable and I am a bit of a klutz so when I saw these I made the jump and love them."
_
"- an audio cable provided of mic and controlsOverall, I think that they are outdated headphones and Logitech should DEFINITELY make a new one."
_
"- Ear cups are fairly comfortable- Removable cable is a nice touch- USB charging is great - you can listen while it charges- Case is very nice- Design is unique and attractiveCONS:- The hissing sound mentioned in other reviews is more prominent than I expected."
_
"Unfortunately, you have to use the cord with the power off but they do sound great...and you're internal iPod EQ works great."
_
"The controls on the audio cable allow for easy control of answering calls, skipping, forwarding, reversing or pausing songs."
_
"As others may have pointed out, they sound greater when connected via cable, which sort of throws a damper on the whole Bluetooth thing."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"*Comfort:These are very comfortable headphone around the ears, although they are quite heavy."
_
"Clamping force isn't excessive and is at a comfortable level."
_
"I think that if Logitech make something with this or better bass, better ANC, lighter and more portable and more comfortable, they will be something amazing."
_
"Too bad as they are very comfortable with controls easy to use and at least with the computer great sound and they even have a nice case and wall wart charger."
_

Connection

Connection:
"I'd just like to touch upon a few things which disappointed me slightly.1) Lack of multi-point connectivity."
_
"- aptX support- Noise cancelling- Similar quality wired and wireless with and w o active noise cancelling- Can pair with upto 8 devices- Can use in wireless mode while chargingCons- Can get a little tiresome to wear for long periods of time (e. g. a workday)- Bass is a little muted regardless of the mode (if you're a fan of heavy bass avoid these)- The caskets don't swivel in both directions- USB connection is right next to 3.5mm jack meaning annoying hum while wired and chargingOverall these headphones are just plain awesome."
_
"I also owned the Logitech UE 6000 which had excellent sound but the connection for the audio cable was way too lose and kept falling out at the lightest touch, whereas the Logitech UE 9000 has a very solid connection that doesn't disconnect easily even when pulling on the cable, so that by itself is a huge improvement."
_
"Works great when connected to my laptop"
_
"If there were only a way to turn off the noise cancelling when connected wirelessly... Soooooo close to perfect."
_
"In passive mode (power off, cable connection) they sound less crisp but there is no irritating noise."
_
"Pros:Very good sound qualityNoise cancellation is greatBluetooth wireless connection was easy to setupNo dangling wires make it a breeze to freely move around with the headphoneLightweightFlex-fit and movable joints allows for comfortable useQuality made productCon:Comparing the wired Logitech UE versus the wireless Logitech UE - there is a difference in the sound quality - with the wired version still providing a higher sound quality"
_
"Bluetooth connectivity spottyMy recommendations for customers, try them out."

_
"Uncomfortable to wear for an extended period of time heavy."
_
"Here's my problem: the earphones are heavy, and when that weight pulls down on headband, it digs into my head."
_
"The headphones are slightly on the heavy side, so wearing them all day would not be very comfortable."
_
"A little top heavy but it's worth it I love listening to music through them and playing my games with them."
_
"Good sound stage, heavy solid bass but mids and treble is still clear."
_
"The comfort is awful, the earcups are heavy and put a decent amount of pressure around my ears, but I can live with that."
_
"These are pretty heavy headphones (3 5) for the weight, I think for people like me that like to listen to music for hours on end its a kind of downfall for these headphones but i have to say during the usage of the headphones, you will not be disappointed."

_

Microphone

Microphone:
"Creative also tried this with the Sound Blaster Evo ZXR and also failed at mic clarity, although driver updates did improve the clarity, it still was a far cry from what it could and should be."
_
"Not sure if this is true for all bluetooth headphones of just those with the same protocol as this model, but when using the terrible microphone, the audio can only be transmitted in mono, which gives terrible sound."
_
"Terrible, unusable microphone."

_
"Now for the 3-start rating, this headset is unique in several ways but one feature I really wanted (considering the price too) was a solid headset with a microphone and this one was not only bluetooth and had good reviews on audio quality but also had a set of microphones!"
_
"It is true the microphone isn't great for phone calls, however, all phone calls are mono."
_
"Bad because built in mics are't as clear as external microphones which would turn people off who wanted a wireless headphone for communication and music."
_
"The built in microphone feature was both a good and bad idea."
_
"- an audio cable provided of mic and controlsOverall, I think that they are outdated headphones and Logitech should DEFINITELY make a new one."

Music

Music:
"every time I moved my head, I'd hear this slight but noticeable crackling sound and it's really annoying I can not enjoy music this way.... and I don't they will replace it for me but if Amazon to help me I would appreciate it."
_
"I have had these for almost two years, and while the audio quality for listening to music is quite good, they have some major drawbacks."

Noise

Noise:
"Other reviews insist that there is an annoying hissing noise, but he has yet to hear it."
_
"You can also listen to music with the power off, which is something the Bose models currently don't do (although of course the sound isn't as awesome as when the power is on).I'd say the main downside of these headphones is that the noise cancellation just isn't as good as Bose (I had a QuietComfort 2 before this)."
_
"The noise cancelation works but it is not very impressive."
_
"Pros:+ Great design and comfort+ Easy access to volume controls+ Included cord with adapter for devices+ Nice carry case+ Rechargeable+ Great sound+ Good noise cancellationCons:- Not as great via Bluetooth- Volume controls on the headphones and cord don't always seem to work- Noise cancellation always on when using via Bluetooth- PriceEither way:+- Short cord - great for small devices such as PSP and iPod, not great for reaching the stereo."
_
"I stand by my original claim that the Bluetooth used in these is amazing, and the SQ is truly impressive, so 4 stars remain, but definitely not I love it territory due to previously mentioned noise canceling performance."
_
"Pros: Full-featured Great soundCons: Bulky Metal hinges are a nice touch, but look cheap and add considerable width Expensive Unable to bypass noise cancellation in Bluetooth mode Awkard placement of power button Easily attract smudges and fingerprints"
_
"It fits well on your head but after about 2 hours of wear, your ears start hurting because they get really tight which it could be a good thing in a way... Because the noise canceling works like it should."
_
"The one problem I have is you can't use these in Bluetooth mode with the noise cancelation off but that isn't a big problem."
_
"The quality was nice, the audio quality was very good (yes, there is some hiss from the noise cancellation), they paired extremely easily with my devices."
_
"I have Lightspeed Zulu 2 noise canceling headphones and she flies with Bose A20 noise canceling headphones (proven to be the best ANR headphones in the world, period)."
_
"Second, my wife and I are both general aviation pilots and we own some of the best active noise reduction (ANR) technology available."

Price

Price:
"Now the reason I gave these a 1 start...I have babied these headphones since I bought them but one day I went to put them on and the top plastic band just snapped out of no where... How cheap is that plastic just to snap broke like that?"
_
"Unfortunately, they just weren't good enough to justify that much money."
_
"CONS:- price, obviously- rather large, so these will not be great for travel (but I fully intend to travel with them! )"
_
"Complaints aside, these are good headphones, just could be better, and at this price, should be better."
_
"Pros: Full-featured Great soundCons: Bulky Metal hinges are a nice touch, but look cheap and add considerable width Expensive Unable to bypass noise cancellation in Bluetooth mode Awkard placement of power button Easily attract smudges and fingerprints"
_
"Great headphone, like it a lot and good saving on the price."
_
"I'm not sure what the problem is since I have had no problems pairing with my Sennheiser MM400 and two other inexpensive bluetooth headphones."
_
"For half the price of the Logitech UE 9000 I'd highly recommend them."
_
"This is an excellent wireless headset, particularly at a discounted price compared to what Logitech sells it for."
_
"For the price, they should be comfortable for several hours or even all day wear, and they are not."

Quality

Quality:
"Microphone Call Quality-------------------------Unfortunately, A2DP doesn't have enough bandwidth to support both stereo stream out, and microphone aux in."
_
"The reason I am so torn about the UE9000s is the painful discrepancy between the insane sound quality, beautiful aesthetics, and the *horrid* ergonomics."
_
"The wireless clarity and range is 2nd to none- and the prospect of not having anything tethered to my head with this kind of quality sound will be hard to let go of."
_
"Now for the 3-start rating, this headset is unique in several ways but one feature I really wanted (considering the price too) was a solid headset with a microphone and this one was not only bluetooth and had good reviews on audio quality but also had a set of microphones!"
_
"I have had these for almost two years, and while the audio quality for listening to music is quite good, they have some major drawbacks."
_
"When set up correctly, the audio quality is outstanding, better than my previous two pairs of high-end, over-the-ear Bluetooth headphones."
_
"4.0 would've expanded the bandwidth of information allowing for higher quality sound as well as better battery life and stronger wireless connection."
_
"Build quality is THE BEST!"
_
"Other two good ones for bass, but not with this exact quality, are the Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (a bit dark toned, wonderful punch but mediocre rumble) and the B&O; BeoPlay H8 (also dark toned, a bit too boosted out of the box, and with a terrible problem of distortion of sub-bass when the ANC is active).MIDS:nice nice."

Sound

Sound:
"The only down fall is there not compatible to Sony but the sound I get out of themakes up for it."
_
"every time I moved my head, I'd hear this slight but noticeable crackling sound and it's really annoying I can not enjoy music this way.... and I don't they will replace it for me but if Amazon to help me I would appreciate it."
_
"Creative also tried this with the Sound Blaster Evo ZXR and also failed at mic clarity, although driver updates did improve the clarity, it still was a far cry from what it could and should be."
_
"ANC:not very good, it makes the sound too boomy and unbalanced."
_
"Not sure if this is true for all bluetooth headphones of just those with the same protocol as this model, but when using the terrible microphone, the audio can only be transmitted in mono, which gives terrible sound."
_
"(Beats was the worst, IMHO) The full range of sound is gorgeous."
_
"They work great and the sound is amazing."
_
"Not saying that it sounds bad because I think the 6000's are excellent (depending on the genre), just saying it should've sounded a little better for the amount of paper put down to pick one up."
_
"So far the most impressive headphone that I own which had THE lowest amount of sound leakage is my Klipsch Mode M40.ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) and Talk Through feature:ANC on this headphone is no where near the same level as the Bose QC15 so don't expect it do completely block out outside noises."
_
"UE 9000 tested in comparison to UE 6000, Audio-technica ATH-A700x, Skullcandy Mix Master, Vmoda M100, Klipsch Mode M40, Creative Sound Blaster Evo ZXR ran on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 older model (built in Wolfson WM1811 DAC) with Neutron and Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional sound card."

Weight

Weight:
"Having them on for a long time isn't recommended and I've found myself taking the headphone off to rest from the weight."
_
"The thin excuse for a cushion on the top bar that rests on your skull begins to weigh down in a subtle, yet painful manner."
_
"The leather padding on headband is inadequate for the weight of the headset."
_
"Yes they have some weight to them but for me it doesn't affect the comfort."
_
"Here's my problem: the earphones are heavy, and when that weight pulls down on headband, it digs into my head."
_
"Update 12 31 12 - As mentioned by others, due to weight, the headband is uncomfortable and lacks adequate padding."
_
"I will say though, having borrowed those wireless studio Beats for a couple hours I was surprised at how light weight they felt and how beautiful the sound quality was."
_
"The plush foam and weight distribution makes them perfect in that sense."
_
"I have no issue with the weight."
_
"These are pretty heavy headphones (3 5) for the weight, I think for people like me that like to listen to music for hours on end its a kind of downfall for these headphones but i have to say during the usage of the headphones, you will not be disappointed."
_
"An unfortunate feature, in addition to the enormously overpricing, is the weight- easily twice that of the nearest competitor, and a serious factor in making a decision costing about eight hundred clams."

Wireless

Wireless:
"Overall I wouldn't recommend the wireless version of these headphones."
_
"I was worried about wireless cutting in and out and the audio levels changing but I found I could easily move about the house and go into multiple rooms with no loss in quality."
_
"4.0 would've expanded the bandwidth of information allowing for higher quality sound as well as better battery life and stronger wireless connection."
_
"Not saying that the bass and treble boost is bad, but having it as an option in wireless would've been nice, especially when the headphone cost so much and is their flagship model."
_
"Speaking of wired mode, with ANC off and the circuit powered down, this headphone has great clarity which is why it's too bad ANC is forced ON when in wireless mode."
_
"Other two good ones for bass, but not with this exact quality, are the Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless (a bit dark toned, wonderful punch but mediocre rumble) and the B&O; BeoPlay H8 (also dark toned, a bit too boosted out of the box, and with a terrible problem of distortion of sub-bass when the ANC is active).MIDS:nice nice."
_
"WIRELESS RANGE:excellent."
