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.

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...

Ultimate Ears Super.Fi 5vi Earphones

 

How many times have you bought a portable media player to find soon afterwards that the earphones that came along were of poor quality? Personally i remember myself coming to the same conclusion over and over ever since i bought my first Walkman...

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.

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...
