  • Rhythmic
  • fast paced
  • tons of excitement and attack


  • Similar looks to other models
  • only adequate call quality

These Ultimate Ears in-ears are a heck of a lot better then other offerings we've seen from this company.

Not where call quality is concerned, mind you: the cable looks identical to other models, and calls are similarly adequate.

But play music and these prove to be toe-tappingly rhythmic and fast-paced, creating bags of attack and excitement.

Dynamics are similarly impressive – they can do the low-level stuff that makes vocals sound more emotive, as well as the bigger shifts that make an orchestral score sound more epic. In short, brilliant.
