First Look: Ultimate Ears 700

1:56 /

With a sleek design, a range of ear tips, and supreme sound reproduction, the Ultimate Ears 700 headphones are worthy of an audiophile's ear and earn our recommendation.

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.
