When people spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on their music players and music collection, many of them neglect to spend even a fraction of that money on a good pair of headphones to listen to their investments. Taking a $200-300 iPod or iPhone with a few thousand songs and listening to them with the provided headphones is nearly a crime. This is why we always advocate the purchasing of a good pair of headphones after buying a new music player or phone with music capability. As such, we have come upon the Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10vi
headphones that can be used in both music players and phones such as the iPhone because it has a microphone built into the wire.
First, we’d like to say a few quick things about Ultimate Ears
as we’re sure that quite a few of you are unfamiliar with the company. Ultimate Ears
is a company that only makes in-ear monitors and headphones. They don’t do anything else, period. This dedication to sound had landed them a reputation among sound engineers and artists
as the premier solution for performance monitoring. The simple fact is that Ultimate Ears is used by the majority of the sound engineers and artists that you all listen to, and as such Ultimate Ears are how the engineers and artists hear their own music and determine its finished quality. When someone uses a specific technology to check their work and then approves it, then you know that’s the way to really hear what you were supposed to hear. Taking this a step further, Ultimate Ears offers headphones ranging from their $50 Metro-Fi all the way up to their $1,350 Ultimate Ears 18 Pro Custom In-Ear Monitors. Also, for those that may not be aware, Ultimate Ears was purchased by Logitech back in 2008 and is not an independent business unit of Logitech. This enables them to have a global reach while still delivering impeccable products, innovation and customer service.
Enough about the company, let’s get to the actual product at hand
Before we dive into the product usage, we want to talk a bit about the specifications
and technologies inside of these monitors to give you an idea of the sheer complexity of the product and how they fit it all in. First of all, there are three drivers [or speakers] per ear bud. This means that it helps product a full bodied sound that is closest to their custom monitors making them ideal for personal listening as well as stage monitoring. In addition to that, the noise isolating design provides up to 26dB of noise reduction which can be ideal in almost any setting. This is achieved through the wide array of ear pieces that come with the monitors that we will detail later in the review. In addition to that, the Triple Fi 10vi headphones offer a quality frequency response range from 10Hz up to 17,000 Hz as opposed to headphones like the Beats by Dre (which are over the ear headphones, not even ear buds) that have a slightly different range of 20Hz to 20,000 Hz. In addition to that, these headphones have both a 3.5mm and a 7mm jack for listening to music.
