Default Deluges of new Ultimate Ears stuff

http://ultimateears.com/en-us/products/universal

Well, it's Logitech, not Ultimate Ears, and they're diluting the brand name, cannibalizing their own market share with all those similar models. Some variants look like Skullcandy.

Yuck! But what did we expect from Logitech ... certainly not improvements. IMO it's a shame for UE as I haven't seen anything exciting from them since Jerry Harvey sold UE, not even the 18's. I also agree with you that this new bread creates images of skullcandy in my mind :/

Did you see Jerry Harvey mocking the UE11?

That man has a extremely classy site....Logitech is a fail who takes good phones and turns them to trash. The paradox would be that they sound good......

Yep. The JH customs may not necessarily be the best sounding in the world, but they are certainly the best marketed.

Good business...plus with them acting stupid it gives way to his 'greatness'.

What's the difference between UE 600 and Superfi.5? O.o
Anyone had experience with TripleFi 10?

As far as I know, they just renamed the Super.Fi 5 to UE600. It's actually less confusing now, since people didn't grasp that the Super.Fi 5 Pro and EB are completely different phones than the Super.Fi 5 "no suffix". Seems they discontinued the two older Super.Fi 5 models in the meantime, though.

The Triple.Fi are decent phones if you can get them for $95 from Amazon (which happens twice a year). They have horrible comfort, they're among the worst fitting IEMs out there.

Could not remember much about the triple.fi been too long since I tried them but if you do get the deal that dfkt states thatís a good price to go custom with a remold via a company like fisher audio or uniquemelody since the original fit and comfort suck.
