Ultimate Ears Super.Fi 5vi Earphones
Article Publish Date:
How many times have you bought a portable media player to find soon afterwards that the earphones that came along were of poor quality? Personally i remember myself coming to the same conclusion over and over ever since i bought my first Walkman cassette player around 15 years ago. Of course the same thing happened with portable CD players, Mini-Disk players, Mp3 players and recently with my Mp4 players. No one can really blame companies for not supplying expensive earphones along with their portable devices since they would obviously cost a lot more and in the end there are always people who can hear music just as well with the default earphones. However for all those just like myself who want something better there are quite a few options out there in the market. Ultimate Ears is part of the wider Logitech family and they have been making a few of the best earphones in the world for quite some time now.
Ultimate Ears, a business unit of Logitech, is the leading supplier of in-ear-monitors for professional musicians and an emerging provider of premium earpieces for the consumer market. Founded in 1995, the firm supplies custom-molded earphones costing up to $1,250 per pair to a who’s who of performers in all musical genres. Ultimate Ears also offers custom-molded consumer earphones, as well as off-the-shelf Super.Fi products for the high-quality universal-fit market.
The Super.Fi 5vi stand out from your everyday earphones from the moment you lay your eyes on them. Their design and build quality is exquisite and as you will see later on they also perform in a manner that gives you the impression that you are wearing an expensive closed type headset. Of course these all come with a hefty price tag and that may just be the only drawback of the Super.Fi 5vi but like everything in this world you get what you pay for.
