Review

The Ultimate Ears are the reason I am able to perform the way I do. Because of the Ultimate Ears I am able to hear everyone else on stage clearly and accurately, this is such a huge benefit to the band when we're playing live because it enables us to play with each other as if we're in the studio even though we're in front of thousands of people. It's truly amazing how much they help, I will never go back to anything else. -- Evan Taubenfeld Musical Director & Lead Guitarist Avril Lavigne

I'm fussy when it comes to audio and prepared to pay to get improved quality but there is a greatly diminishing return when it comes to price.

I owned a pair of Etymotic 6i headphones for over two years (£70) which I found excellent at blocking external noise (I commute via an old & noisy train with screaming school kids). The 6i sound reproduction was even, giving crisp / fresh high notes; but they did lack bass (my favourite ear tips were the foam).

The Ultimate Ears (UEs) are broadly similar in design yet deliver three noticeable differences versus the 6i. The UEs are not discreet, the phones are angled to 'fire' the noise better (apparently) and generally have bigger drivers in the ends which makes them stick out a bit.

This comes on to my second point, the bigger drives make a great deal of difference to the quality of the bass; the 6i do not sound as rich as the UEs and the bass is simply incredible - it puts uber expensive hi-fi speakers to shame. Conversely the delicate highs are not lost in the UEs but I'd say in my subjective opinion and by a *very small margin* the 6i were better performers at this audio range.

I found the 6i sensitive to the output volume levels on the listening device but the UEs are twice as sensitive again. I'm operating at less than a quarter of the volume these days - you have to be so careful to turn the volume down before plugging in. The UE "user guide" goes so far to have a diagram of how a volume knob looks when it is set to low! (p13)

Overall the UEs do have it over the 6i but if you not so fussed about your bass (I'm guessing that's the minority of listeners) then spare the cash and go for the 6i.

When i read the reviews on this and other sites i was at first extremely sceptical. i didnt believe that a set of headphones would make that much difference to my music. I have to say now that i own a pair i am truly converted. the sound is crisper, clearer. unfortunately for me the music now sounds better through my headphones than my hi-fi speakers. These headphones are worth every penny i paid for them.

These are the fourth different make of 'phones that I've tried and they are by far the best (the others being Bose, Sennheiser CX300's and Etymotic 6i's). The sound quality is amazing; warm, engaging and revealing - you're really drawn into the music and absolutely hear layers and details that you've never heard before.

Canalphones aren't for everyone due to the isolating nature of their design - they cut out background noise by blocking it out rather than cancelling it out, which can result in some annoying side effects. With some 'phones users may experience footfall feedback (especially when walking on a hard surface wearing hard-soled shoes) or friction transmission (the sound of the cables rubbing against clothing or even the wind blowing over the cables when standing in a breeze).

I have experienced both of these problems badly with the Etymotic 6i's (maybe because their design intrudes quiet a long way into the ear) which made them unwearable for me (dreadful waste of £80). However, the UE pro 5-s suffer very low (hardly perceptible) levels of these two major irritating effects - but don't try eating when wearing them, is all you'll hear is your own chomping!!

The isolating is so effective that you can hardly hear a tube train pulling into the station when you're standing on the platform, even when listening at quite low volumes, and you're quite likely to miss any announcements from the driver about station closures or delays. Even your fellow passangers will appreciate them as there is absolutely no sound leakage.

I know that £115 may sound like a lot of money, but I really wish I'd bought these in the first place, I can't fault them at all.

I've just purchased a pair of UE super.fi 5 pros to replace a broken and much loved pair of Shure E3Cs.
I picked the UE's because of great reviews and the fact that they were cheaper than the SE310s and have two drivers rather than the Shure's one.
My experience of the UE's after a week or so is that the bass is truly great - a huge step up from the Shure E3Cs. Consequently the overall sound is warmer and fuller. However I do feel that they lack the fineness of detail at the mid and top end that the Shure's delivered.
So far I think i'll get to love them at least as much as the E3Cs (which i had for over 3 years). I also think they will last for longer - they are more solidly put together, the replaceable chord is great and the packaging incredibly solid. In contrast I had replacement E3cs three times in three years due to the earphones cracking.
