Listen, if Peter Wentz of Fall Out Boy loves Ultimate Ears, then you will too. “Ultimate Ears…I love ’em. They block out all outside noise so all I hear is beautiful music.” Yeah, beautiful music, that’s what you have been missing with lesser quality earphones. The latest ‘phones from Logitech’s Ultimate Ears sports two hi-fi channels per ear, which UE tells us will passively block-out unwanted noise up to 26dB. Want beautiful music? It will cost you $229.99, but don’t think about using these with iPod shuffle 2K9. Yup, the earphones do not sport in-line controls or the required proprietary chip. Apple hates you.

That’s what Ultimate Ears by Logitech® has introduced with the new Ultimate Ears 700 noise-isolating earphones.

You don’t have to be a rock star to enjoy Ultimate Ears. Any way you get your music – from your iPod, other MP3 players, or your computer – the Ultimate Ears 700 noise-isolating earphones offer superior sound without cramping your style. And unlike other high-quality in-ear earphones, the Ultimate Ears 700 earphones use a custom-tuned dual-armature microdesign that delivers highly accurate sound reproduction in a compact design – each earphone is smaller than a dime.
When you’re listening to Fall Out Boy, or your favorite band, on your Ultimate Ears 700 earphones, Peter Wentz’s vocals sound nearly as good as they sound live. Featuring a custom-tuned dual-armature layout that separates the broad frequency response – 10 Hz to 16.5 kHz – into two high-fidelity channels per ear, the Ultimate Ears 700 earphones deliver music the way it’s meant to be heard.
“Ultimate Ears legacy of creating custom in-ear monitors for rock stars directly benefits people who love great music,” said Philippe Depallens, Logitech vice president and general manager of the Ultimate Ears product unit. “After designing thousands of in-ear monitors for professionals, we’ve put everything we know about delivering great sound quality into the Ultimate Ears 700 earphones.”
The Ultimate Ears 700 earphones include an assortment of ear cushions so you can choose the fit that’s best for you. You can choose between small, medium and large soft-silicone ear cushions or use the included Comply™ foam cushions for optimum comfort, fit and seal. The custom fit provides passive noise-isolation of up to 26 dB, allowing you to get fully immersed in your tunes.
For your traveling convenience, the Ultimate Ears 700 earphones also come with a pocket-ready hard case. At just 11.6 grams, the earphones are light enough to wear whether you’re relaxing, riding the bus to work, or going for a jog. And thanks to its compact and comfortable design, you’ll experience less ear fatigue, leaving you free to enjoy pure music.
