The Ultimate Ears UE500 represents yet another pinnacle of achievement in the 'starter' in-ear category by this long-time manufacturer. Offering tighter, more refined bass control versus the entry-level UE350 model, the UE500 brings good clarity and 'up-front' definition of musical details to your portable music experience. Although perhaps slightly rollled-off in the uppermost highs for demanding audiophile listeners employing uncompressed or lossless music, the UE500 silky top-end  presence also ensures no jarring harshness in the upper treble for a smooth, sonically pleasing overall tonality. The burnished mids/highs and evenly balanced tone is great-sounding with any musical genre or recording type and dovetails effortlessly with iPod, iPad, computer notebooks or MP3 players with no amplifier needed. At this price, we feel UE may have a contender for one fo the top candidates in the popular under-$75 price strata.

The Ultimate Ears UE500 headphone comes from a long line of high-quality in-ear designs dating back to the pioneering UE 'Super.Fi' models back in the early 2000s. Now completely updated by Logitech with all the latest technological in-ear monitor advancements like weightless rapid-response neodymium driver arrays and extra-tough Kevlar cord reinforcement, the build construction of the UE 500 appears solidly bomb-proof to withstand exercise use and non-stop portable listening while out & about. The slightly-rounded, small flat-back earpiece on the UE500 makes it useable for under-helmet wear while also ideal for sleeping or laying out without protuding earpieces ruining the experience. The UE500 package includes six pairs of proprietary eartip sets in silicone and foam materials, amongst the best selection of 'universal fit' ear sleeves offered by any in-ear manufacturer. The 2-year free manufacturer's 'repair or replace' service warranty remains in place only with your HeadRoom authorized Logitech/UE dealer purchase receipt.
