Ultimate Ears super.fi 5

 

Ultimate Ears adds to its affordable earphone line-up with the $169.99 super.fi 5. Well, they're inexpensive when compared with, say, the company's custom fit, $1,150 UE 11 Pro. The typical Ultimate Ears sound can be found in these 'phones: some extra...

Quality audio performance. Several earpiece options, including new foam eartips. Some passive noise reduction.

Considerable cable thumpnot a great choice for exercise.

Ultimate Ears' super.fi 5 earphones deliver strong audio performance and they fit wellthanks to an abundance of tip optionsbut they're not for the gym.

Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 EB review:

 

Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5EB Ultimate Ears, maker of the custom-molded in-ear monitors you see bands such as U2 and Radiohead wearing onstage, decided a few years back to make commercial earphones, and the results have been overwhelming. The...

The Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 EB features an excellent design, as well as a booming low end that doesn't completely wipe out the high frequencies.

The cable for the Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 EB is on the short side, and the bass response is too heavy for folk, jazz, and classical music.

Bass addicts with a desire to maintain an articulate high end in their music will enjoy the quality Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 EB in-ear set, while purists who prefer flat EQ should steer clear.

Ultimate Ears SuperFi 5vi

 

The SuperFi 5vi are a great sounding pair of in-ears. They deliver very detailed and clear sound for all music genres but they do lack a bit of bass. Those of you who need punchy and deep bass, the SuperFi 5vi will most likely not feed your hunger and...

The SuperFi 5vi are one of the most clearest sounding pair Iv'e listend to. This allows for very detailed and undistorted or muffled sound. While they do lack in deep bass, I would highly recommend them. With the SuperFi 5vi included are: a hard carry...

Gadgetell Review: Ultimate Ears SuperFi 5vi earphones

Review: Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Noise Isolating Earphones

 

Not long ago, I had the opportunity to review the Ultimate Ears Super.fi 3 headphones.  Now, I have reviewed quite a few higher end headphones, and I still wasted almost no time declaring the Super.fi 3 the best I had ever used.  In facts, at the time,...

What Needs Improvement:  There were two small things which I did not have time to mention in the main body of the review.

Ultimate Ears Super.Fi 5 Review [New Version v2]

 

Enter the Super.Fi 5, the newest (and cheapest) member in Ultimate Ear's series of medium-priced earphones. The name couldn't be any more confusing, considering there are two other phones from the same range available, the Super.Fi 5 Pro and Super.Fi 5...

So… who are the Super.Fi 5 actually made for? Ultimate Ears' claim of the SF5 being made for "fashion minded consumers who listen to a variety of music genres" seems about right. In my opinion the SF5 are a good upgrade for people who used some of the...

Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Earphones

 

Ultimate Ears just released a completely new earphone dubbed the Super.fi 5. It is aimed at budget conscious earphone users looking for a good sounding, decent looking set of in-ears. The new radical design is a major leap forward compared to the old...

Excellent Price / performance ratio, Easy to insert, Tip selection, Build quality, Handles microphonic noise very well, Attractive design, Comfort, Good bundle, Excellent sound stage, Bass performance good for the price

At $169 they are not exactly cheap, Cable is not replaceable

Ultimate Ears have struck gold with this new design and I am sure that they will get many praises for moving away from the old more rectangular design. Sound wise these earphones do an excellent job compared to the cost of them. The official price is...

Ultimate Ears Super.Fi 5vi

 

Audiophile quality sound for your mobile phone.

In-line microphone and call-handling button, cord length, stylish design, range of rubber and foam tips included, excellent sound quality

In-line microphone and call-handling button separated, call-handling button too low on cord, bass isn't outstanding

Ultimate Ears Super.Fi 5vi

 

Recently acquired by Logitech, Ultimate Ears has a long history of producing in-ear monitors (IEMs). It has now brought tailored Super.Fi 5 IEMs to ma...

In-line microphone and call-handling button, cord length, stylish design, range of rubber and foam tips included, excellent sound quality

In-line microphone and call-handling button separated, call-handling button too low on cord, bass isn't outstanding

For the average consumer, spending this much on a set of headphones will probably seem ridiculous. For the price, though, these IEMs will completely rejuvenate your music listening experience.
