Meh, I would be happier to see the SF5pro and triple fi successors.

Also, the UE600 really looks like another version of the SF5.

Interesting... not really.

I think they might just be rebranding their older models?

don't think so...the specs are pretty hi...i think they might use some new BA or they skipped to dynamic drivers ...who knows

Kudos to UE.  The 600 is a rebranded superfi5, but the rest are all new.  It seems they have improved the durability on the newer models, though SQ remains unknown.  I am excited.

Logitech Logo on UE Earphones. I can see it coming, but I still can't accept it.

 

Anyway, the spec of 600 is slightly different from SF5. It has a wider frequency response range and is slightly lighter in weight.

the ue 600 have a frequency response of 20hz -20khz vs sf5 with 15hz -15khz....or might it not be the real specs ?!

The fact that the UE700 is the higher than the newer headphones (at least in model number) isn't good. I didn't like the UE700 when I tried it.

The UE700 is a pretty excellent $100 IEM, so count me interested :)

Don't trust specs but it's also $90 cheaper than the 5. May be revoiced also so it's definitely worth a listen and I wouldn't put ant significance to the 700 price. It's a 2 way so should cost more than the 600 or 5(overpriced?) did but until someone hears a 600 it's all speculation as to how they compare. The 500 looks to be a dynamic.

 

My guess is that it's better marketing to change models than it is to 1/2 the price of a current model. It's also an opportunity to tweak but of course we don't know that.

The UE 700 isn't a $100 IEM.  The lowest I can reliably find it is about $140 (i.e. from a vendor, not taking chances on ebay).  However, they did seem to lower the msrp of the 700 from $200 to $150, because I don't remember it costing less than the superfi 5.  I do like them, however.

 

What it actually looks like to me, is that they dropped the Superfi 5, or more accurately, they renamed the Superfi 5 to 600.  This way, if anyone talks about superfi 5 in the future, it will be understood that it has a mic and control button (aka the vi version).  I think they wanted to do away with the ambiguity of general public saying "Oh, you should get the superfi 5, I just bought them and they sound great, plus they have a mic so I can answer my iphone!" Then, when friends go to Best Buy or whatever and buy a pair of superfi 5's, they come home and are confused as to not having the controls.  This doesn't explain why there is a 500 and a 500vi being introduced, though.  Maybe they just use the superfi 5 housing and have new drivers?

 

I don't like how there's a metrofi, superfi, and "hundreds" line now.  It makes it annoying to have to research to find out what's going on.  How does the superfi 3 compare to the ue 350? metrofi 220 to the ue 200?  Make your lineup convoluted enough, and I'll just go somewhere else.  I don't have time to learn the intricacies of your advertising.

hmm there are too many of them and not one of them looks interesting, the 500 almost did till i saw it was a dynamic
