The July issue of DJ times has a great piece about the UE Reference Monitors. I’ve highlighted some of the tasty bits below.
"For studio use, as expected they were superb. I suddenly found it easy to isolate and fix the problems I simply couldn't hear before.
"This is frankly, where I think UE's justify their cost very easily - it's simply very, very difficult for the average producer or musician, working pin a home studio ... attain accurate flat sound. That issue is rendered moot by using IEMs."
"At $1,000 a pair the Ultimate Ears In-Ear Reference Monitors are an investment worth making - especially for home studio producers, remixers and musicians who may not have ideal environments for desktop monitors."» read more

The UE-18's made the 2013 Recommended Components. The 18 Pro is a three-way, in-ear, custom-mold design with six balanced armatures: two each for the bass, midrange, and treble, the latter allowing the 18 Pro to have the most extended top end of any UE model. It combined clean, airy highs with a smooth, detailed midrange and deep, well-defined bass. "Its ability to play low frequencies at high levels with minimal distortion is unmatched by other in-ear "phones, and the clarity and smoothness of its midrange is Class A," said JA.» read more
What’s the best way to test and compare in-ear monitors?
Great question! In order to properly answer it, let’s start from the very top and then drill down. Before we can talk about how to critically judge an earpiece (or any speaker for that matter) we need to really understand sound dynamics.» read more
So every month I interview a live sound engineer for the UE University. I'm always asking about how they go started, about their gear, about their tours, and sometimes I even remember to ask for some tips and tricks about using in-ears live on stage. I usually talk with monitor engineers but sometimes check in with front of house engineers and studio engineers. I'm always blown away by just how much I really don't know. I'm constantly learning new things when I talk with experts in the field. Granted, musicians use in-ears a totally different way than us audiophiles. But it's worth noting that the manufacturers were building for musicians before the audiophile community caught on. So I thought that this would be a really...» read more
