Before Christmas of this year, but probably not before Thanksgiving.

FYI.

Wow great, I wonder if I can trade my E500s in with Earphonesolutions.... if they're said to be better.

I was told that it will be more expensive than the UE10 Pro.

Better be a four-way, quad driver universal and custom IEM

So if this is better than the UE10 Pro, it would be quite a statement. This will be very interesting. A majority of the industry has relied on the UE10 Pro for a while now; perhaps a new king will be born?

It is confirmed it is custom, and is aimed at us audiophiles and not like the UE-10 Pro is aimed towards live musicians.

Live musicians must LOVE great sound then!

Gonna be tough to beat!

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been testing something new from Ultimate Ears. It’s early in development - first phase - but it’s seriously impressive. Enough so that I’m willing to go to the edge of the limited amount that I can say about it, to prepare those who might be looking for the next big thing in high-end audio.

I’ve been generally quite impressed by UE’s products in the past, but this one has the potential to be important on the scale of its best-known designs, for a number of reasons that I mostly can’t get into yet, since it’s not due out for a while. You may know from my earphone reviews that I’m not a classic bass-head - muddy thump doesn’t do it for me, so I’d take detailed, controlled low end over wider but flatter bass any day. The ideal would be if we didn’t have to compromise, and the highs and mids weren’t given short shrift in the process. That’s what UE appears set to deliver.

I always hold off on final earphone opinions until I know several things: the guaranteed final sound signature, price, and package details. Given the vague information I have at the moment, it’s too early to make any near-final judgments. But if it’s on time, at the right price, and both looks and sounds at least as good as what I’ve been playing with, this could be the big one for UE—a true killer product. I’ll share more, including pictures, as soon as I can.

It would be nice if UE concentrated on generating product instead of buzz, this time...

Well, like some mentioned, UE is making a smart marketing move by keeping this quiet. Otherwise, they will more than likely lose sales of their UE-10 for a few months while everybody awaits their new custom flagship.

I was told the opposite by a rep. I was told the UE-10 was aimed at studio engineers and audiophiles and that the new one would be aimed at musicians.

How in hells name can anyone call this keeping it quiet - with every man and his dog knowing about it at Headfi there will be more rubbish and useless speculation written about it than you can shake a very long stick at.

Off topic, sorry!

Raisin, I tried to pm you and your box is full and you don't take emails. Can you please pm me, I would like to ask your help with something and would really appreciate it!

Thanks,

Steve.

i hope they have some sort of upgrade policy for those of us that own the UE-10's.... or at least give us a discount... on whatever this new custom IEM is...
