Quality headphones are a must in these modern times, and it doesn’t hurt if they look good as well. That’s where the Logitech Ultimate Ears 6000 come in. Comfortable, well pitched, and offering a beefy sound, these over-ear headphones also harbour an array of helpful features.

The most compelling one is the on-board amp, which packs what can only be described as a powerful listening experience. This is reinforced by the quality of the noise-cancelling effects, which are driven by two batteries.

Something that I found very handy was the ability to change tracks, adjust volume, and answer calls without having to touch my smartphone at all. It’s done via a button on the wire which includes a microphone.

Also, during a long train ride, a friend and I were able to use the splitter device to totally nerd out over some new tunes, with of each of us getting a full, headphone listening experience.

And the headphones are comfortable, possibly the softest thing to ever touch my ears.

Here are some songs that lift nicely when listening through the Logitech UE 6000 headphones.

1. Bitch Perfect – Drifting
2. Snakadaktal – Hung On Tight
3. The Gooch Palms – We Get By
4. Standish/Carlyon – Nono/Yoyo
5. Wintercoats – Halogen Moon
