Some of the world's best known artists — including U2, Madonna, and the Rolling Stones — rely on Ultimate Ears for their custom in-ear monitors. Ultimate Ears uses the same basic concept in its super.fi 5 Pro headphones to bring you superbly accurate sound from your portable music player. These tiny, lightweight 'phones fit snugly in your ears and block out external noises, so you can listen to your music at lower volume levels. Inside each earbud are two precision-balanced drivers, one for high frequencies and the other for lows. You experience studio-quality sound with engaging dynamics, crisp highs, and deep, clean bass.

Flexible ear loops hold the earbuds securely in place and keep the cords out of your way. Soft, interchangeable ear tips help ensure a comfortable fit. You can store the sleeves and the headphones in either the soft leather or sturdy metallic travel case. The included in-line sound attenuator prevents loud bursts of volume from damaging your ears or your headphones when you're listening through an unfamiliar audio system, such as on a plane.

Product Highlights:

  • sound-isolating earbud design
  • includes 5 sets of interchangeable earbud sleeves for a comfortable fit

Headphones: Great sound whenever and wherever

The right pair of headphones can solve a number of problems: listen to music and movies at night without keeping your family awake, take your favorite music with you while jogging or doing yard work, or get relief from distracting noise while working or traveling. Replace the cheap eabuds that came with your portable player with a high-quality pair, and discover more detail in your music. Or choose a set of full-sized 'phones for rocking out at home. Noise-canceling models use built-in microphones to pick up background sound and then cancel it out electronically.

Features

Noise Isolating Technology: The Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pro earphones' in-ear fit and customizable ear tips maximize noise isolation from the environment for the ultimate listening experience. This technology provides approximately 26dB in noise isolation. This enables you to listen at lower volumes even in loud environments. These are smaller than most active noise canceling headphones and don't require a battery case.

Dual Driver Design: The earphones deliver professional, studio quality sound by combining two precision balanced armatures in each earphone, one for lows and one for mids and highs. A passive crossover directs the music to the high and low speakers for precise audio reproduction, while audio filters shape the sound for maximum detail.

Cable and Connectors: The earphones have an attached 46" cord with a sliding adjuster that allows you to adjust the length of the cable. At each earphone, the cable has a flexible ear loop which keeps the earphones in place and routes the cable over your ear. The cable terminates in a gold-plated 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo mini plug. A 1/8"-to-1/4" plug adapter is included for use with standard headphone jacks.

Sound Level Attenuator: When using the earphones with unfamiliar or unstable sound sources, such as airline or public access ports, it is recommended that you use the supplied sound level attenuator. This in-line attenuator will prevent loud bursts of volume that may damage the earphones.

Fit: Because every ear is different, the Super.fi 5 Pro earphones come with ear tips of assorted sizes and materials to ensure a good fit. The soft flexible tips gently contour to the inside of your ear to create a comfortable, secure fit and won't fall out when you move. Five pairs of tips are included: single-flange silicone ear tips (small, medium, and large), double-flange silicone ear tips (one size) and disposable foam ear tips.

2 Carrying Cases: The earphones come with a hard, metallic storage case with a spool to wind the cord and compartments for the adapter plug, sound level attenuator, and cleaning tool. It also comes with a folding leather carrying case with elastic loops to hold your accessories.

Accessories: Accessories such as additional ear tips, replacement cables, carrying cases, etc. are available from Ultimate Ears directly.
