Ultimate Ears SuperFi 4vi Noise Isolating Earphones

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #555 in Universal Fit


Pros: Great isolation, ok quality microphone

Cons: Too expensive, chubby build denies comfortable fit, harsh sound, bass thin, a bit hissing, stiffening cable

These IEMs sport harsh sound, chubby build uncomfortable for smaller ears or ear canals. Due to chubby housings, I couldn't wear them for longer than few hours at a time.


Bass is pretty much lacking, as typical of balanced armature. It simply isn't there. What is there, lacks decay and impact completely.

Mids are good quality and quantity.

Highs are boosted in 8k region giving them a harsh, sometimes sparkly signature. Extension is not great, ending at 16kHz.

Detailing is exaggerated which combined with the sound signature sounds plain bad.

Soundstaging is of decent width, but a bit too close, decent resolution.

Cable hardens after contact with skin oils or heat. Plug is straight 3.5mm jack.
