Ultimate Ears
Why custom fit? A custom fit ear piece is comfortable - it's designed to fit snugly, yet comfortably in your ear. The proper fit also provides outside noise cancellation of up to -26db (perfect for when you're trying to listen to your iPod or DVD player on an airplane), and better yet, the snug fits creates what is essentially a resonance chamber in your ear, and that means bigger, better bass without having to increase volume. It also means that people sitting next to you won't hear what you're listening too, and that's a feature that I wish every person on the Metro while listening to an iPod would take advantage of.

The entry level Ultimate Ears UE-5c feature dual drivers (high and low frequencies), a frequency response of 20Hz to 16kHz, 119db of sensitivity at 1 milliwatt, and come with your choice of clear, black, beige or brown replaceable cables in lengths of 46-inches or 64-inches. The UE-5c's are ideal for iPod owners. The suggested retail for the UE-5c is $550.

The top of the line UE-10 PRO feature triple drivers (single high, dual low drivers), a frequency response of 20Hz to 16kHz, 119db sensitivity at 1 milliwatt, and can be molded in your choice of skin tone, custom color, or two-color swirl (at no charge). Like the UE-5c, the cables are available in a variety of colors and lengths, and are replaceable. The suggested retail for the UE-10 PRO is $900.

Sure, the Ultimate Ears are a bit pricey, but once you try them, you'll never want to leave home without them. And besides, you spent several hundred dollars on your mp3 player, and you've spent more than a few hundred bucks customizing your car, so why not indulge yourself with the most comfortable, best sounding set of ear phones you'll ever experience? Ultimate Ears are designed to last a lifetime (if cared for properly), and are sure to earn you major cool points with your bench racing buddies. Give them a try, and you'll wonder why you ever fooled around with any of those other ear bud-type headphones.
