And again we find ourselves looking at ear tips with the Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 Noise Isolating Earphones! But that is not something you should let turn you off too quickly if you are looking for a set of headphones that will provide super-quality sound and excellent responsiveness to input.
Since the acquisition by Logitec Inc, Ultimate Ears have shown a greater attention to design and innovation and there is no reason why this set of headphones shouldn’t compete for the best headphones spot. Let’s see why they rock…
Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 Noise Isolating Earphones can be used on Apple’s iPhone without using any adapters or bridges, so if you like to play music from your iPhone then these might be for you. The headphones feature an innovative play button and a mic which you can use to make or pick calls.
This kind of compatibility is unseen in most of the models we have reviewed and it is something iPhone users will immensely appreciate. Kudos for Ultimate Ears! Quite a majority of the points that enable this accessory to challenge for the best headphones spot were garnered here.
Passive Yet Effective Noise Cancellation
The mechanism by which the Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 Noise Isolating Earphones cancels out noise is simple yet phenomenal. These times are hard, and if one can help not to have to buy batteries after spending a hefty sum on headphones, it would be better.
The headphones come with four changeable buds which, without batteries, can isolate up to 26 dB and completely cancel out most typical noises e.g. lawn mowers, vacuum cleaners, chit chatter and engines by design.
Some models have provided good or maybe better noise cancellation but they use a pair of or a single AAA battery. Besides the obvious extra costs, leaving the headphones unused for long periods and forgetting to remove the batteries will be at your own peril – you will find your headphones completely ruined by battery fluid.
Epic Sound Quality
The sound quality of these headphones cannot be described by any lesser adjective, it is just epic. Ultimate Ears have managed to create a kind of a 2.1 system with a speaker for bass and another for mid and high frequency sounds. A passive circuit board is used to separate and split the source sounds into low frequency, mid and high frequencies and with the dedicated speakers for each category, you are able to achieve unprecedented quality and appreciate even the most negligible subtleties in music.
The bass is thumping but it is not just this that steals the show. The effectiveness with which the Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 headphones reproduce sound is stunning, even for the mid and high frequency ranges. If sound was the only thing to consider these would definitely be the best headphones for a vast majority of music lovers.
Ear Tip Buds
There is no shortage of ear tip buds for the Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 headphones, just as there is no shortage in the types of ears listeners have. The package includes 4 ear tips, each created to suit ears with different temperatures, textures and sizes (configurations if you will).
The buds are quite comfortable, and it is to be noted that these days Ultimate Ears headphones have Comply Foam inserts. Beauty and comfort is not all they offer, however. They in their own way keep noise out of your ears and they are very effective at this.
