This product is no longer available for purchase.

The Ultimate Ears UE500vi in-ear stereo headset features a sleek micro design that sits flush with your ears for a stylish look that's both comfortable and unobtrusive. Expect very clear musical detail without over-accentuation and excellent telephony features plus a tidy flat cord that won't tangle. The tapered silicone ear cushions typically fit more naturally than traditional 'square' or half-oval ear cushions. Listeners can also use the included Comply Foam eartips for maximum wearing comfort and best ambient noise isolation.

The Ultimate Ears UE500vi represents yet another achievement in the in-ear headset category by this formerly pro-audio oriented manufacturer. Offering significantly more refined bass control versus the entry-level UE350vi, the UE500vi brings very good clarity and 'up-front' definition of detail and speech to your iPhone music listening experience. Although perhaps slightly rollled-off in the top-most highs for certain audiophiles, the UE500vi silky overall presence also ensures no jarring harshness in the upper treble for a smooth, sonically pleasing sound. Lows presence is also audibly more laid-back in the mix versus the UE350 models that have an extra bass kick, so the UE500 are a good choice for listeners not desiring added bass emphasis. The burnished mids/highs tone and evenly balanced dynamics are great-sounding with most any musical genre or recording type and dovetails effortlessly with iPhone / iPad, or iTouch with no amplifier needed. Excellent speech + voice intelligibility along with a decent quality microphone allows hands-free chat with your favorite Apple player of choice. The big feature of the UE500 is their tangle-free 'flat' cord which is beloved by some for avoidance of cabling fuss or muss compared to thinner 'rat's nest' cords. At this price, HeadRoom feels UE may have one of the top candidates in the popular under-$80 in-ear / earbud headset category and a great 'bang-for-the-headphone-dollar' audio investment.

The Ultimate Ears UE500vi in-ear headset headphones come 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, extra-tough Kevlar cord reinforcement and microphone + 3-button controller, the durable build construction of the UE 500vi seems bomb-proof to withstand non-stop portable listening out and about. The slightly-rounded, small flat-back earpiece on the UE500vi makes it useable for under-helmet wear while also ideal for sleeping or laying out without protuding earpieces ruining your bliss. The UE500vi 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.
