Ultimate Ears has been in the in-ear industry since the very beginning. What is special about Ultimate Ears is that they produce all types of earphones right from cheap in-ears aimed at promoting safe listening for kids to high-end quad armature custom IEMs for musicians and sound engineers. The company's reputation is rock solid and they are known to produce some of the very best universal in-ears around. Today I will be taking a look at the newest addition to their product line-up namely the new Super.fi 5. The Super.fi 5 fits in their product line-up just below the Super.fi 5 Pro which is a dual armature design, however, the Super.fi 5 does have a few things to offer that makes it unique. For example it is the only earphone currently in the Ultimate Ears line-up that features a top firing balanced armature and features a smarter more ergonomic design.
Ultimate Ears has already announced a version of the Super.fi 5 with an on cable microphone. This version aimed at iPhone users will be available from the first of October and is dubbed the Super.fi5vi.
