there are ear phones and then there are ear phones, as in ear buds that are sculpted to fit the minute specifications of your ear, providing unparalleled fit, comfort and sound quality.
That’s what Ultimate Ears has specialized in since 1995, when their products were available only to professional musicians who swore by their UE ear phones for live performances. They not only protect the musician’s hearing onstage, but the customized micro-speakers fitted specially for their ears ensures crystal clear feedback. Five years ago UE developed a series of consumer models for all us who aren’t in touring rock bands. The universal fit ranges from $20-$400, but a customized pair – the ultimate Ultimate Ear experience – will cost you upwards of $999. Buy one for someone who’s been extra nice this year, or buy a pair for yourself and receive a free Portable iPod Dock ($100) for your friend.
