Default Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220

A.A.'s review of Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220:

Price paid $15 at Cash Converters
What comes included?:earphones, hard plastic case, different sized ear cushions, user and warranty booklets

What the Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220 packaging and earphones looks like:

In this photo, I've also included Ultimate Ear's MetroFi 100 for comparison.

Introduction:

Ultimate Ears-when you think of them, you're probably most familar with their custom and Super.fi series earphones-but they also make the cheaper MetroFi series which are perfect for iPod/iPhone use.

My model, the 220 is at the top of the MetroFi range.

Design

Compared to the MetroFi 100, the 220 features a rubber cord (instead of the fabric like cord on the 100's) and impressively designed earpieces-it's very comfortable to wear.

The driver design is a single Titanium Coated Neodymium driver in each earpiece.

The earpieces are finished in a silver finish with the "UE" logo.


Sound quality
As you'd expect Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220 sounds very impressive-with perfectly balanced, crisp sound and nice bass. Soundstage on these is excellent-very surprising with these the detail and vlarity of music is improved greatly.

The isolation is excellent for a passive IEM.


[B]Compared to: MetroFi 100/B]


220-rubber cord, uses a Titanium Coated Neodymium Dynamic driver



100-fabric cord, uses a basic mylar type driver

Any sownsides?
Wished there was a soft type carrying cse included
Overall
I was really impressed with Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220-Logitech has made a great sub $100 IEM and is highly recommended
