Having searched far and wide for a replacement for my earphones that got lost... I tried my wife's BOSE ie2i and liked them, but d idn't isolate the noise well for my infrequent air travel. I tried the etymotics... but painful, similar to trying to sleep with earplugs, the next day if I want to use them it Hurts! I researched and some say easy to break, so I will be careful. So far, beautiful realistic sounds. FANTASTIC …

Like another reviewer, I own 2 pairs of Etymotics. Beautiful sounding IEMs with painfully uncomfortable silicone triple flange ear tips.
Ety makes a very comfortable "mushroom" tip, but they don't last long and are expensive.
Bought these because I've always loved Ultimate Ears and they have an Apple Remote inline. They sound fantastic and their stock eartips are far more comfortable than the Etymotics' tips.
Then I found the Shure "olive" tips. They fit both my Ety's and my Ultimate Ears and are COMFORTABLE. They allow sparkling clarity and good smoothness, and their secure seal gives your IEMs solid bass.
BASS is why I like these Ultimate Ears. They don't that goofball puddle o' mud overdone mush that passes for bass on earphones named for has-been rappers. But they go deeper than those phones. Here you have fast, deep, accurate bass that matches what you hear in real life. In other words, high fidelity.
Etymotics give you fast bass, but not as much of it. I notice the difference. I'd say the Ety's give me a little more definition and less sibilance, but the UEs definitely win in the bass department. Generally speaking I use the Etys more, but I have no problem recommending the UE 600vi, especially for those who value accuracy over stupid amounds of goofy, muddy bass screwing up their sound, but still want all the bass that is supposed to be there.
Apple Remote works perfectly with iPhone 4, shuffle, Touch gen 2. This item is a bit less expensive than its Etymotic counterpart, doesn't ride so deep in the ears and is more comfortable with the stock eartips.
But get the Shure olives. You'll be happy you did. …

Excellent sound, but lacking richness in the bass
I bought the 350vi's and the twice as expensive 600vi's to compare side by side. After going and back and forth between them I ult imately settled on the 350vi's. I should start by saying that in many ways the sound quality of the 600vi's is noticeably better. Sounds are crisper, more distinct, and the depth of the sound field is definitely greater with the 600vi's. I can see how someone who listens to instrumental music would love these, and there was much I really liked about them too. They are clearly higher quality. However, what was missing for me was the richness of the bass. The bass was very tight, tighter than the 350vi's, but it wasn't rich and boomy. I listen to a lot of electronic/lounge music and I get lost in the richness of the bass - which the 350vi's do beautifully and fully. Yes, the sound is a but more muddled, but in the end I got lost in that more easily. I liken it to watching a movie in 3D vs 2D. Yes, 3D allows you to experience more in many ways, but the image is always dimmer and less saturated that in 2D, and in the end I find the 3D a but distracting. When I watched Avatar again in 2D I liked it much better. I was able to get lost in it more, and the image was more saturated and vivid. I feel that way about the 350vi's. No, the are in many ways not as impressive, but in the end I like the experience better with them. They are GREAT headphones for the price, and produce great lows and highs. I'm really happy with them thus far, and as much as I tried to convince myself that the 600vi's were a better listening experience - they just weren't for me.
Plus, the mic is higher up on the cord with the 350vi's and I like that better because it doesn't get buried in my sweatshirt or jacket when I run he cord under my clothes. …

Exchanged my Bose mie2i's for these, expecting comparable sound quality, but with sound isolation. Not the case. The Logitech UE 600vi's are some of the worst earbuds I've ever heard. Sound is shallow and tinny, feel of the product is cheap and it is poorly designed. The control/mic on the cable falls below the breast line, making difficult to actually take a phone call when wearing these. In all honesty, I like my $29 Apple Earpods WAY MORE than these $119 Logitech POS's. Seriously, do not buy these. …

Great however the cable breaks
Bought these enjoyed the quality of sound however after three months the cable close to the plug in broke. Returned them under war ranty for a new pair. Three months later the same issue.
For this amount of money I would expect better quality. I'm using them with my iPhone in what I would consider in a gentle manner. …

UE 600vi's won out over 350vi's, Bose, vModa
I did side-by-side comparison's of the Logitech / Ultimate Ears 600vi's with the less expensive 350vi's, as well as the Bose SIE2i 's and vModa Vibe's. I struggled with justifying paying $120 for a set of earphones, twice the price of the UE 350vi's or vModa's (although $30 less than the Bose). I'm not a professional musician, I don't work in the music business, I don't spend thousands of dollars on super high-end stereo gear. But the sound difference from the 600vi's was absolutely noticeable and better in my opinion. The 350vi's are touted for their bass capabilities, and they do put out plenty of bass (as do the vModa's). But all of them lacked the clarity, particularly in the mid and high range, that the 600vi's possessed. I would listen to the same passage of several different cuts (pop, hip-hop, classical, jazz), and there were appreciable subtleties and elements of music that I heard in the 600vi's that I did not hear in the others. The 600's also did not lack for bass, there is plenty of bass, it's just that it's well balanced with mid's and high's. I believe that the others have little if any more bass than these, the others are just muddier overall. I've never been impressed by the Bose in-ear earphones, especially for what they cost. The vModa's seemed like a good value. But the 600's are with the extra money in my opinion if you want to hear everything that is in the music you're listening to. …
