  • 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: I'm a laptop producer of electronic music and film score compositions and it just isn't practical to remain tethered to a desk with near-field monitors for tracking and mixing. I need to be mobile but need to know that what I'm hearing will translate accurately to my mixes.
  • Pros: Flat and accurate yet not too clinical
  • Cons: UE customer support isn't the greatest

  • 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.
  • Pros: Great sound and isolation.
  • Cons: The earphones are kind of expensive.

  • 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
  • Cons: are you kidding? wait... hm.... $$$$

  • 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.
  • Pros: Unbeatable sound stage and clarity
  • Cons: for $1000? None.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Simply stellar sweet sound
  • Cons: Hyper revealing to bad sources / tracks

  • Summary: Ok so I realize the UE IERM's are kinda old news now, but I ordered a pair a few weeks ago and just got them today. All I can say so far is, the sound is exactly what I want from an IEM.
  • Pros: Balanced sound from top to bottom, never stressed or pressurized sounding. Effortless sound, realistic imaging, adapts into different genres.
  • Cons: None that I can think of.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Listen to the music, not the IEMs
  • Cons: Case is not pocketable

  • 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
  • Cons: Some air bubbles in ciem
