Ultimate Ears has launched a new portable speaker, the UE BOOM, which the Logitech-owned audio company claims is no normal Bluetooth gadget but in fact the "first social music player." The cylindrical BOOM can run for up to 15 hours on its internal battery, while the fabric outer skin is waterproof for use poolside.
The folks at Logitech have announced the newest pair of custom-tuned earbuds on the market with Ultimate Ears Personal Reference Monitors. With customized earbuds being all the rage amongst those looking to slam audio directly into their brains in as precise a way as possible, these $1999 Ultimate Ears brand monitors have been set up quite high on the pedestal. Each set of Personal Reference Monitors is brought up to the exact set of specifications that your ears want and need with a "Personal Reference Tuning Box" so you know you'll have no less than an impressive journey even before the buds are blasting your skull contents.
Logitech has taken the wraps off of its first AirPlay compatible audio system, the Logitech UE Air Speaker, a WiFi-enabled streaming all-in-one. The $399.99 UE Air Speaker pulls uncompressed audio from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or computer, but also supports directly docked devices - and recharging - in its pull-out bay. Meanwhile, the "UE" Ultimate Ears branding promises superlative audio quality.
$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.
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.
The Ultimate Ears UE 4 Pro earphones were released today and these things are for the serious audiophile, only. They offer a custom-fit, look super sleek and provide superior sound quality, at a price.
These in-canal earphones can be molded to fit your ears and only your ears. They feature dual armatures to keep all the audio ranges separated but have fewer functions than the UE 5 Pro earphones, slashing $200 from the price tag.
You can add on an ambient noise feature that actually allows you to hear the sounds around you in case you need to, you know, for your own safety. You can get the Ultimate Ears UE 4 Pro earphones starting today for $399.
Logitech continue their path to own everything capable of forcing sound into your head, with the acquisition of Ultimate Ears, the well-respected earphone manufacturer. The $34m cash sale will give Logitech an instant entrance pass into the high-end audio market, where Ultimate Ears has built a business catering to professional musicians and audiophiles.
When I splurged on nice headphones last year I went for Skullcandy, which to me was pushing my spending limits a bit. However, if you make more money sometimes you want top of the line equipment. Especially ones that the average Joe generally has issues snagging. These Ultimate Ears UE-11 Pro earphones have all the features and the price to go with it.
