Ultimate Ears super.fi 3 Studio White
Ultimate Ears decided to create a universal fit earphone and the excellent SuperFi line is the result. Finally, no need to make an appointment with your local audiologist and having customized ear impressions made to get that famous Ultimate Ears quality… Yahoo! These headphones sound great right out of the box with a smooth, even response across the entire audio range and decently-articulated mids and highs. We have noticed that the super.fi Studio-3's bass response improves BIG-TIME when mated with a dedicated portable headphone amp. Overall, a rather satisfying and inexpensive upgrade to the completely crap-tastic stock earbuds that come with most portable player devices like iPods, Mp3s, laptop computers, and gamers. By the way, if you are looking for more sonically accurate and superbly detailed audiophile-quality sound from your earphone, the upscale super.fi 5-Pro model offers significantly better extension on the upper highs, a deeper & more expansive soundstage image and a fuller, richer bass response.
The slightly rounded, larger-size drivers on the super.fi don't insert as deeply into your ear canal as some other brands which may mean a quicker adjustment/break-in period for earphone newbies and a more comfortable overall fit. However, they do tend to stick out a bit from the ear for most wearers. Conversely, achieving the all-important tight seal within the ear canal might take some doing but that is made exponentially easier by the 5 different sets of eartip sizes and materials (single flange & double flange silicone, squishy foam) included with every Super-Fi accessories kit. The symmetrical 46-inch "Y" cord can be looped behind the ears to reduce cable noise and avoid cable obstructions and has a cable adjustor to snug the cord to the back of the neck. The cable is terminated with a gold-plated 1/8" mini-plug jack. All super.fi series earphones are available from HeadRoom in either black, clear, or white colors and a stylish travel/storage case is included along with a sturdy two-year Ultimate Ears parts & labor warranty.
