Hi, I'm Justin (You?), headphones editor for CNET.com. This is your first look at the Ultimate Ears 700 Noise Isolating Headphones. So the first version of the 700 are in such reverence in the audio file community that Logitech decided to keep the guts intact. So there's 2 drivers in each ear bud to (accent?) high and mid-level frequencies and those also deliver a very natural bass sound that should compliment your music no matter what the genre. The first thing you'll notice about these headphones though is how incredibly lightweight they are. There's no heavy remote on the wire to weigh them down and the small housing modules let you wear them at work for long periods of time without any discomfort. In fact, I wear them for about 7 hours a day straight for a week and never really notice any kind of ear fatigue. So the small size of the housing is also a boon for noise isolation because that means you can jam them way down into your. Don't go crazy but the tight seal is important for blocking out as much ambient noise as possible and ultimate ears gives you 5 sizes of silicone ear tips and 2 sizes of phone tips to choose from. You also get a hard travel case to protect your investment. For a $150, the 700s are one of the cheapest audio file worthy headphones in the market. It's right up there with (??) S4 series as my go to headphones for smart phones and the (??) driver's inside really opens up a wider frequency of sound. So that means your music will be fuller with accentuating details. Now, audio files prefer a more natural sound design with brands like Monster that artificially boost the bass. So very attentive listeners would be really happy with the 700s. You can read more in the review on CNET.com but if you're shopping for a headphone upgrade from the stock buds that came with your smart phone, these guys definitely won't disappoint. I'm just Justin (You?), you just took a first look at the Ultimate Ears 700 Headphones and that sounds good to me.
The Sennheiser Momentum headphones are great in terms of sound and build quality, and are among some of the best headphones for audiophiles in the $300 to $350 price range.
Most users will be pleased with the Lyra's sleek, lightweight design and easy-to-use interface, but serious audiophiles will be unimpressed by the sound quality.
The Incase Sonic headphones are a standout first effort for Incase. Their elongated earcups and memory foam lend a supremely comfortable fit, and the powerful titanium drivers inside add sweetness to their sound that earns them a universal recommendation for all types of music fans.
The SuperTooth Disco is an inexpensive, cordless Bluetooth speaker that earns our recommendation for its modern design, long-distance range, and impressive sound quality that rivals many midrange computer speakers.
The Sleek Audio SA6 earphones deliver above-average sound quality and an unprecedented modular design, but there are better earphones available in this price range.
The SRH1440 headphones are comfortable and ruggedly built with highly detailed sound that will surely thrill audiophiles.
It's not cheap, but Yamaha's flagship Pro headphone delivers excellent sound tuned to satisfy audiophile tastes.
Although they won't satisfy audiophiles and purists, we prefer the Soul by Ludacris SL300 headphones over the competition for their sexy light-up earpieces, supreme comfort, and street-savvy noise cancellation.
The Nike Aero Sport Headphones may not sound great, but they're an inexpensive option for fitness fiends who dig on the super sleek, ultra sweatproof design.
Today we're talking all about headphones with CNET Audiphiliac Steve Sphere Guttenberg and InnerFidelity's Tyll Hertsens. Topics range from headphone recommendations to a breakdown of terms and what the criteria used to measure sound.
