Ultimate Ears In-Ear Reference Monitors
14 December 2011
Summary: Ultimate Ears have definitely succeeded in creating something unique with the IERMs. From a discerning listeners point of view the IERMs have a lot to offer and for those looking for a set of in-ears to do their high quality classical recordings justice these should be on the short list.
Pros: Unique balanced sound signature, Amazing mids and highs, Extremely detailed sound, Big sound stage (for a set of in-ears), Good build quality, Durable cable, Cable manages microphonics well, Good bundle
Cons: High price, Bass quantity, Ungodly long name
Summary: Ultimate Ears is a very good headphone company. They have a wide variety of headphones, that range from the type you use with Ipod's and mp3 players to headphones for live performances. Big time bands that use these headphones are Anberlin, Rise Against, Switchfoot, and many more.
Summary: this is my first set of customs, so I can't compare it to other customs. but comparing to a set of TF10, there is no comparison.
First, it's very comfortable. with TF10, my ears hurt after an hour or so of listening. but with RM, long listening is no longer an issue.
Pros: Great sound, ambient noise isolation, comfort and cool looking
Summary: Alright everyone. I feel like the UERM's deserve some cred. I never write reviews on my phones, and I know not enough people read this section, but someone has to defend these.
I've owned and listened to many of the top tier Custom's and Universal IEMS.
Summary: Given the date of the OP's review, seems I'm a couple years late to the UERM party. Well, let's keep it going then.
My new ears have arrived, and they sound glorious.
A few months back I made the happy mistake (happy to ears, misery to wallet) of researching a replacement for my UE10s.
Summary: Edit: So UE has announced the new update to the UERM, the UE Reference Remastered... 1 day after my review. Pretty ironic but it is what it is haha. So I guess this review may be more a tribute to the past than I had initially intended it to be as the UERM is now officially discontinued.
Pros: UE 2 Pin connectors, Neutral Signature, Glorious Midrange, Value
Summary: My 1st Customs. I've owned, Coppers, Golds, Shure 530s, IE8s (2 sets), among others stuff. All of the universals I've owned were a hobby. I would play with tips, I would mess with the EQ, I would listen to different IEMs based on the music.
Not bass heavy, but also not bass light.
Summary: I've recently amended this review, based on my education into the world of Head-Fi.
I've been toying around with getting a set of in-ear customs for a long time. I caught the write-ups in my audio rags about UE's new product and jumped all over them.
Pros: Mid range and great soundstage for an in-ear.
Cons: Customs take some getting used to. Bass suffers a little.
Summary: I wonder why UERM is often disregarded when picking from $1000 range. I'm guessing that it's due to "only" having 3 drivers, versus having 8 drivers per side. I can say with confidence that driver number does not equal sound quality(for the most part).
Pros: Great SQ, Sound stage, Case, Customer Service, Refit, Driveablitiy... more
