$999 burning a hole in your pocket and a taste for high-end in-ear monitors just like the music mixing pros use? Head over to Ultimate Ears, where Logitech has roped in Capitol Studios to help them develop the Ultimate Ears In-Ear Reference Monitors. Custom molded and delivering up to -32dB noise isolation, the new monitors promise to put you in the musical sweet-spot where the producer was originally sitting.
Logitech has announced the addition of several new sets of earbuds to its Ultimate Ears line. I have used quite a few Ultimate ears headsets over the years and they generally sound very good and offer great bass. The new additions to the line include the Ultimate Ears 500 (pictured), 350, 200, 500vi, and 200vi.
It's no great secret that the hands-free kit Apple include in with the iPhone 4 isn't much cop when it comes to audio performance, and that's left plenty of room for third-party offerings promising aural loveliness at a range of prices. With an MRSP of $99.99 but a street price under $50, the Scosche IDR655m earphones promise "brilliant highs, silky smooth mids and powerful bass" together with the company's tapLINE II control system. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
One of the first things that many music phone and MP3 player buyers do is get a new set of earphones. The stock earphones that come with most devices like the iPod or iPhone are not very good. These stock earphones are also not typically very comfortable either.
Urbanears makes a wide range of headphones and earphones for music fans. The company has a new set of earphones out with some interesting tech to make them more comfortable and keep them in place called EarClick.
When I was a kid, I went hunting with my dad a few times before I realized that if you shot something you had to cut it open and clean it. It wasn't so fun after that. What I do recall is that one of the guys on his deer lease liked to pack a .45 because of all the snakes slithering around the place. When he would shoot the thing, he would poke an unspent bullet in each ear to muffle the sound a bit. These new Teknines Nine Millimeter Earphones from MUNITO remind me a lot of that strange dude.
Having officially unveiled their SA7 in-ear monitors this week, Sleek Audio are slowly pushing out more shots and information about the upcoming high-end earphones. Set to slot into the company's range above the existing SA6's, but for those audiophiles not interested in the Sleek Audio CT6 Customs, the SA7's are expected to launch within the next few months.
Sleek Audio have been promising a new set of high-end in-ear monitors for some time now, and courtesy of Pop-Sci magazine we now have a better idea of what's in store. The Sleek Audio SA7 IEMs slot in above the SA6's, keeping the user-adjustable VQ system for tweaking treble and bass, but now machined from a single block of aluminum with a carbon fiber shell held on by titanium screws.

I have used consumer earphones from Ultimate Ears before and found them to be very good. The headphones I used from the company had great bass and sound quality. I bet the companies custom monitors for professional musicians would sound even better. Ultimate Ears has unveiled its new 18 Pro custom monitors today.
