If you are a musician I’m sure you have heard of Ultimate Ears. If you are not, but have been to any concerts lately and happen to notice some perfectly fitted headphones that never fall out of the performers ears during his/her performance no matter how much they move around. Then you’ve probably seen the Ultimate Ears Pro.
Ultimate Ears Pro have been making in-ear monitors for over 20 years now. However, in just the past year or so the company has made a huge change on the way they create their earphones. Going from completely handcrafted and the traditional productions methods to 3D printing. By doing so they will be able to create some of the most accurate sculpted in-ear monitors ever!
UE Pro has different styles of monitors starting at $400 and up. However, the ones discussed here are UE’s crème de la crème. Designed for professional grade mixing, mastering, and monitoring for musicians and audio professionals. The pricing on these will burn a $1,350 hole in your wallet. But well worth it. You will be introduced to the most accurate sound you have ever heard.
UE uses a specially-tuned array of three balanced armatures specifically crated to create “linear” sound. The result is crystal clear highs, granular texturized midrange and a rich bass that reaches all the way down to 5Hz. It all combines together to create unparalleled power and balance.
If you are an audio snob, I would highly recommend taking a look at these baby’s. As stated before they will leave a hole in your wallet but will fill your audiophile heart with content.
