How are the vocals and treble compared to the e500's?

What about the trip to the audiologist?
Congrats btw, perhaps you're the first consumer level person to get a hand on these, that was really fast considering they've only been up on the official site for a few days.
Wow, thanks for posting the impressions.
I can't wait to own some custom IEMs like this some day.
Congratulations on getting them. After getting the fit tweaked, do you think they will be comfortable enough for most of your home listening?
Listening to the UE11's on the road today through my ipod, I found that the bass is actually lacking as with most other IEMs I listen to while driving.
Certain songs with a more prominent higher low frequency sound better but the lower frequencies were almost hidden from the slight intrusion of outside noise. If I didn't know the bass was there from listening so many times before I probably wouldn't have even notice.
While listening at home its much more noticeable. Although something I'm noticing more and more is the lack of punch with the bass drum. That said it may just be worth considering my source as the problem and not the IEMs themselves.
I'll post more things I notice once I get my Move on hand.
These things really shouldn't be labeled as the basshead audiophile version because that simply is not the case. Yes the bass is present and impressive but its not overwhelming as one would expect. I would imagine the bass would be much stronger on the 11's than on the 10's for obvious reasons but not enough to warrant them taboo.
My 2 cents.
Good to note on the bass info Jazic. I think once you go line out you are going to see a pretty significant increase in overall bass. The headphone out of the ipod simply doesnt cut it as the freqs are very prominent in the mid range with drop offs in the highs and lows.
You will see once you get your MOVE. I would def buy a good alo line out dock as well.
Great to hear that UE is going to redo your artwork dude!!
