The Ultimate Ears UE600 offers a unique fit style within the UE in-ear line featuring a 'vertical transducer' design that many listeners find more comfortable and ergonomically improved compared to the traditional horizontal earpiece construction. The upwards firing drivers on the UE 600 have very good bass response and slightly forward highs which can sound somewhat leading in the upper frequencies with certain recordings. For listeners seeking to add a hint of accentuation to the treble ranges to clarify voices or overly-muddy recordings, this trait might be considered a good thing. On the down side, the cord on the UE600 is prone to more cable microphonics than usual, so employing the shirt clip provided is encouraged to minimize that annoyance. Once the correct fit is achieved, expect beautiful immersive sound direct from iPod, iPad or MP3 players that will rival some in-ears at twice this price.
The Ultimate Ears UE600 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 UE600 appears solidly bomb-proof to withstand non-stop portable listening while out & about. The cable design can be looped behind the ears or worn down front as desired. Ultimate Ears UE600 package includes seven pairs of proprietary eartip sets in both silicone and foam materials, which is amongst the best selection of 'universal fit' ear sleeves offered by any in-ear manufacturer and greatly assists achieving that all-important personalized fit. Remember, the 2-year free manufacturer's repair-or-replace service warranty remains in place only with your HeadRoom authorized 'Logitech/UE dealer' purchase receipt.

Its crucial to get a good seal in your ear canal. If the stock tips don't work so well for you, try the Shure soft-flex sleeves (the black "olive" tips with the larger-diameter holes; see the accessories page). You can also try looping them over your ears to insert them at a different angle.
