We've been a strong part of the community since 2005 and we're ready to get even more involved. We now have a dedicated Sponsor Page and we are going to use it to share all of our exclusive content. Since we are first and foremost a live sound music company, we have unfettered backstage access. Every month, we'll post new interviews with sound engineers and music industry insiders. We'll share music tips and we'll talk about the latest in-ear developments. We'll also answer any and all of your questions about our products and we'll help with any other questions you may have. This is our way of giving back to the community and of saying thanks! We couldn't have done this without all of you! See you at the next meet.» read more
The Triple.Fi 10 Pro was easily one of the best IEMs available when it was released back in 2007, carrying that strength in the years since to become a classic. However, 2012 brings the Triple.Fi 10 Pro's successor in the Logitech UE 900, and, in my opinion, the UE 900 is a vast improvement, in terms of fit, in terms of sound.» 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
Mark Johnson from Light & Sound just featured the UE-7's in a three page spread, and the piece was also teased on the magazine's cover. His review captures his experience from start to finish, including his fitting appointment, unboxing, audio testing, and UE’s superb customer service. He concludes that the UE 7 Pros are a very solid product, “made even better by the service that UE provides."» read more

The UE18’s six proprietary speakers make this one of the most dynamic and detailed portable headphones I have used. The sound coming from the UE18 was an out-of-the-head experience. The sound stage was very wide and instrument separation was outstanding. The vocal reproduction was incredibly lifelike and I could hear deep into the recordings. Listening carefully there was no masking and everything that was on the recordings was clearly audible.» read more
