Welcome to the future of wireless
headphones with the Logitech Ultimate Ears 9000 that has been
specifically made for Apple products such as the iPod, iPhone
and iPad. However the headphones will work with all good
Bluetooth devices. Boasting Bluetooth connectivity, the Ultimate
Ears 9000 (UE 9000) not only produces extremely clear sound but
even has noise cancellation technologies, giving users of Smart
Devices a truly enhanced audio experience.
The first thing you notice about
the UE 9000 is the build quality of this product. With a stylish
design, these wireless headphones would not look out of place
anywhere. Whether lounging on the couch, working in an office or
anywhere, Logitech should be commended on the design and build
quality. The UE 9000 also comes with a sturdy case to secure
your headphones when not in use.
Another highlight of the product is
the memory foam cushions that creates an extremely comfortable
fit and whether you are having a long session of music listening
or playing the latest iPad game, there was not once where I
found the headphones uncomfortable to use. Even the headband is
The layout of the controls have
been evenly spread on both the outer ear cups with volume,
navigation and the Bluetooth switches on the right and the mute
button on the left. By splitting the controls, it makes
accessing them easy and I loved how the mute button was on the
left which ensures easy muting if necessary.
Pairing the device to a Bluetooth
device is quite simple and you just enable Bluetooth on the
headphones and then pair it with your intended product. If you
don't want to use Bluetooth, you can use the audio cable to
connect to your audio product. When the headphones are connected
to your Bluetooth device, you will head a sound indicating that
the connection has been successful.
In terms of charging, the UE 9000's
can be charged in two ways. Either through the supplied USB
charging cable or with the AC adapter which takes around 2 1/2
hours to charge that gives about 10 hours of use. Even if you
lose Bluetooth, you can still use the headphones via the
included audio cable to continue listening to music, although
noise cancellation will be deactivated as it requires power.
Considering the price of the UE
9000's, audio quality is quite impressive. There are great
levels and good use of bass. The noise cancellation technologies
works quite well and does filter out ambient noise. It basically
dulls the background noise that allows you to get lost in your
music or audio.
I tested this product on my iPhone
4 that produced exceptional sound quality. I also like the fact
that you can use the controls on the headphones to navigate your
music instead of using your audio device. As it is Bluetooth
technology, the UE 9000's work up to 10metres away from the
primary audio source. Also, compared to wired or wireless
(Bluetooth), both formats produced similar sound quality.
The Logitech Ultimate Ears 9000 is
a high quality and relatively affordable option for users who
want a decent wireless headphone. With great audio quality,
impressive features and some good noise cancellation, the
Ultimate Ears 9000 not only look good but give the
end-user a great audio experience and with Christmas just around
the corner, what a perfect gift!
