Ultimate Ears MetroFi 170vi

 

Logitech recently acquired Ultimate ears, a very well known and respected professional brand that manufactures earphones and in ear monitors. New in India, we have received one of their in-ears to review, called the MetroFi 170Vi—a plug that can be...

Once in perfectly we realized that the earphones are definitely loud, and meant for outside commutes. The mid frequencies are a little forward and spikey, which is good for phone conversation but not good for music listeners, at least for audiophiles....

Ultimate Ears super.fi 4vi

 

An excellent pair of headphones that also features an in-line mic for making phone calls.

Exceptional sound quality ; Good hands-free functionality ; Attractive design ; Included attenuator tempers sudden changes in volume

Adjusting to ear buds takes time ; Answer/End call button too small

Ultimate Ears' super.fi 4vi earbuds are a solid investment for audiophiles on a budget and iPhone fans who want excellent sound quality combined with hands-free functionality.

Ultimate Ears SuperFi 4

 

Ultimate Ears has been a familiar name to musicians and other audio professionals for a decade, but the company has gained quite a following with its consumer line as well. Earphones in its Metro.fi, Super.fi, and Triple.fi lines range in affordability...

The Ultimate Ears Super.fi 4 earphones offer clear sound and good noise isolation for those who can get a proper fit. They also feature a sleek, low-profile design and include a case and other handy accessories.

The Ultimate Ears Super.fi 4 earphones won't fit all users, and the large aperture can cause discomfort during wear.

The Ultimate Ears Super.fi 4 earphones offer a stylish design, clean audio quality, and some useful extras, but the largish aperture might cause some fit and comfort issues for certain users.

Ultimate Ears super.fi 4

 

Ultimate Ears, manufacturers of the fantastic (and at $1,150, fantastically expensive) UE 11 custom-molded in-canal earphones, has been producing more affordable earphones for a few years now. Granted, for some earphone customers anything more than $20...

Strong audio performance for the price. Decent bass with beautiful highs. iPhone-friendly connector.

Getting a good fit is sometimes difficult. Flimsy design. Significant microphonics (cable thump).

The super.fi 4 may not have the best fit, but when the earphones are firmly lodged in place, you get fine audio performance with strong bass and a clear high end.

Review: Ultimate Ears super.fi 4vi

 

And once you try the Ultimate Ears super.fi 4vi earbuds the stock earphones that shipped with your mp3 player will be collecting dust in the drawer.

They retail for $149.99 and come with a 1 year warranty.

Ultimate Ears includes five pairs of silicone eartips: four pairs of traditional canalbud tips in different sizes and one pair of dual-flange tips. I found the dual-flange tips to provide the best seal, which also meant the best noise isolation and...

Reviews: Ultimate Ears Super.fi 4vi Sound Isolating Headset for iPhone

 

Metal has recently become the go-to material for premium earphones, and like V-Moda's $100 Vibe Duo and Maximo's $70 iP-HS2, Super.fi 4vi's earpieces are made entirely from metal-here, machined aluminum that's been dual-finished with a matte body and a...

There is a lot to like about Super.fi 4vi: Ultimate Ears has improved on its past products in both industrial design and comfort, and assembled a package that delivers both nicely balanced sound and strong outgoing voice quality for cell phone use....

Ultimate Ears Super.fi 4vi: the review AND the giveaway (YES THAT MEANS FREE STUFF)

 

While the device has its problems, for the sake of this review, we're only going to focus on one: Apple's crazy decision to use a recessed headphone jack; a decision that, without a clunky adapter, rendered useless every decent set of headphones out...

They stop the din getting in, but how's about the sound coming out?

we looked at last year were much more solid in design, and the Super.fi 4s are even more impressive.
