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 Pro

 

We heard a lot of marketing buzz when the Super.fi 5 Pros were released from a little known company, Ultimate Ears. Since then, audiophiles the world over have been singing their praises, and the company's homepage has been overflowing with images of...

Amazing sound quality; solid construction; dual drivers

Thin cord; expensive

The Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pro headphones are the best canalphones we have had the chance to audition to date.

Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 EB (white)

 

The Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 EB is a beautifully designed set, so we'll start with our only complaint: Like many of the Ultimate Ear models out there, the cable is very short (46 inches), so unless you are very close to your sound source, expect to...

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 Super.fi 5 Pro (black)

 

The Super.fi 5 Pro's rock-solid fit and ultralight weight make it exceptionally well suited for exercise--as long as you don't mind subjecting a set of $250 headphones to such rigors. Like Etymotic's ER-6s and Shure's E4cs , the Super.fi 5 Pro comes...

Noise-isolating earbuds; studio monitorlike clarity and detail; includes multiple ear tips, hard case, soft case, cleaning tool, 1/8-inch-to-1/4-inch plug adapter, and volume attenuator adapter.

Potential durability issues; expensive.

The Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pro in-ear headphones sound great and fit securely, but the cord's otherwise well-conceived ear loops are too fragile.

Excellent bass and crisp highs. Cheaper than the competition. User-replaceable cables. Fit our ears securely and comfortably.

Bass can be overpowering on very subtle music. They stick out pretty far from your ears.

These aren't cheap, but they sound very goodespecially the bassand we found them quite comfortable. A worthy competitor to the Shure E4c.

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...

The Super.Fi 5vi is light years in front from the inexpensive earphones we find bundled inside portable devices and a lot better than other solutions that cost just about the same. Their build quality is superb and at the same time they can playback...

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.
