Product Description

Product Description

Are you ready to hear the full range of music from your iPod or MP3 Player? The Metro.fi 2 earphones give you full-range dynamic sound in a stylish in-ear design that incorporates a universal fit kit to maximize your comfort and minimize the noise around you. These earphones were specifically developed to offer you a full spectrum of sound to maximize your music experience, much better than the earphones that came with your personal audio player. The metro.fi 2 earphones comes with a universal fit kit with six single flange silicone (2 small, 2 medium, 2 large) and 2 dual flange silicone ear tips along with a 46" cable, cable adjustor, gold plated 1/8" input plug, leather travel case, user guide, and 2 year warranty. So toss your old earbuds and upgrade to the metro.fi 2 earphones -- your ears will love you for it!

From the Manufacturer

For over 12 years, Ultimate Ears has been designing custom ear monitor products for your favorite professional musicians for use on stage and in the studio. Musicians put their hearts, their souls, their breakups, their memories and their passions into every song and they count on Ultimate Ears products to get the most out of their music. Now Ultimate Ears has taken the same technology found in its custom personal monitors and developed a line of personal earphones for music fans, so that you too can hear music the way it is meant to be heard.

Ultimate Sounds for Any Lifestyle
metro.fi 2

If you are a fashion-conscious, active commuter who wants to get better sound from your MP3 player or iPod than you’re getting with your player’s stock headphones, the metro.fi 2 was made for you. It gives you a full spectrum of sound in a stylish in-ear design that incorporates a universal fit kit to maximize your comfort and minimize the noise around you. The passive noise-isolating design blocks out 16 dB of ambient noise, while the titanium-coated speaker and proprietary audio filters deliver a full, "punchy" sound. The metro.fi 2 series is perfect for those looking for an entry-level step up from their portable audio player's stock headphones.
super.fi 3

The super.fi 3 Studio earphones give you studio-quality sound in a unique in-ear design that incorporates pro-style ear loops to keep your earphones in place and a universal fit kit. They seal your ear canal like the metro.fi 2, but block even more noise because the internal speaker is different. The super.fi 3 studio incorporates a proprietary balanced armature driver--the same technology found in hearing aids. Instead of pushing air to generate sound waves like your home speakers, a balanced armature is a coil that vibrates like a guitar sting. This driver gives you distortion-free, full-range audio clarity while the in-ear design provides up to 26dB of noise isolation for clearer sonic detail. The super.fi 3 series is a great introduction to true audiophile headphones for those who are looking to get more out of their portable player.
super.fi 4

The super.fi 4 uses the same speaker technology and sound signature that is used in other Ultimate Ears professional monitors. The noise isolating design reduces ambient interference and enhances quality of sound. The custom tuned balanced armature/speaker is enclosed in a durable, lightweight aluminum housing. The super.fi 4 features two wearing styles, cable down for casual listening and over-the-ear while exercising. Accessories include a pocket-ready hard carrying case, comfortable silicone fit tips with small, medium, large and dual flange fitting options, and an airline attenuator for hearing protection when using an unstable sound source.
super.fi 5

The super.fi 5 uses the same speaker and sound signature used in other Ultimate Ears professional monitors. It offers a detailed, sonically rich experience that is perfect for all types of musical genres. The super.fi 5 utilizes a precision crafted top-fire armature to produce a remarkably full soundstage. The metallic silver body with UE logo is stylish, low profile and ideal for a person on the go. The earphones are color coded for easy left and right identification. Cables can be worn down for casual listening or over the ear for active lifestyles. Accessories include three sizes of soft silicone ear tips, two sets of Comply foam ear tips, a cleaning tool, and a pocket ready pebble-shaped case.
super.fi 5 EB

For those who need a little more low-end response, the super.fi 5 EBs deliver the same professional-grade sound, noise isolation, and superb form factor as other earphones in the super.fi line--but with an increased bass sensitivity for deep and driving beats. Precise audio filters and an encapsulated diaphragm subwoofer ensure that the bass stays tight and distortion-free, never muddy. The super.fi 5 series' dual-driver technology makes these earphones ideal for studio-grade acoustic performance while delivering an increased "thump" for those who like to really feel their music. These earphones also include a metallic travel case.
super.fi 5 Pro

The super.fi 5 Pros are the closest you can get to the same professional-grade stage monitors custom-made by Ultimate Ears for stars like Madonna, Metallica, and Linkin Park. Experience superior full-range sound, thanks to audio filters that shape the sound for maximum detail and passive crossovers that direct music to two different drivers for precise audio reproduction. This design incorporates one 13.5mm diaphragm for clear, non-muddy lows, and one precision balanced armature for detailed mids and highs. These earphones also include a metallic travel case.
triple.fi 10 Pro

If the super.fi 5 series feels like being a musician in the studio, the limited edition triple.fi 10 series is like being a professional sound engineer. If you want to hear every possible nuance and musical layer, then you need triple.fi 10 Pro earphones. These earphones offer one of the most sonically rich experiences humanly possible when listening to any style of music--when a guitarist slides their fingers along the strings or when a singer exhales, you will hear every detail. The triple.fi 10 Pro series is Ultimate Ears' latest technological breakthrough and the only professional earphone product with three separate drivers--one for accurate bass, one for the critical vocal midrange, and one for crystal-clear highs. These earphones also incorporate all the best features that Ultimate Ears universal products have to offer, including pro-style ear loops that secure your earphones in place and a universal fit kit--plus a distinctive metallic blue finish that truly separates you from the pack. The triple.fi 10 Pro’s also come with a metallic protective travel case, sound attenuator and ¼" adaptor jack. Now your head is a world class recording studio. But don’t take our word for it--hear the difference for yourself.

First, the cord is way too thick and stiff.

I just received my Metro.fi2 headphones through Amazon.com this morning and I'm very impressed with these headphones right out the box. I also own a pair of Ultimate Ears Super.fi5EB's and a pair of Sennheiser CX300's to which the Metro.fi's sound falls somewhere in between. The bass very deep and powerfull, tighter and more detailed than the CX300, but not that "make you wanna' smack your momma" kind of bass found in the super.fi5EB's. The midrange is somewhat distant, but can be boosted with ipod presets. The highs are very apparent and not as overpowerd by bass as the Super.fi5EB's nor as tinny as the CX300's. The chord is just the right legth for a tall person such as myself, and thicker than the chord supplied the CX300. I would recommend these headphones for listening to House, Hip Hop, Techno and Reggea.

They are a big improvement over the standard iPod earbuds. Bigger bass, treble without buzz, solid midrange. For true audio-freak, moving up to the "pro" line is your best bet. Assorted ear inserts for a variety of tastes. Not truely "isolating" but ok in that regard. In cold weather, the cords become much stiffer and that becomes annoying at times. Comes with a nice black carrying case.

This product seemed like a great buy at first. The quality of the sound was amazing and the different options for the ear piece sizes was great. However, I have had these for about three months now and one of the ear pieces suddenly cut out. These are over 60 bucks so you can be assured that I took quality care of them, putting them away neatly after every use, but the one ear phone just cut out. This is a TERRIBLE product and TERRIBLE quality.

Pros-
Excellent sound quality, Great looks, Appropriate length cord, very comfortable, Fairly inexpensive (Great value), Sturdy cords, Sound isolation works to some degree

Cons-
Cord may be too long for some, Earphones do not stay in during activity very well (not appropriate for running/working out), Cord is very noisy, if you tap it or rub it against a zipper while wearing the earphones you will hear it very clearly, Cord molds somewhat when it is stored wrapped up (Not as flexible as say, ipod earbuds), Passive sound isolation only Really works while you're actually listening to something

I've had these for about a month now, and I would definitely recommend them. Just keep in mind as you're considering them that they're for listening to music, and that they are not the best for working out to music, traveling to music, skateboarding to music etc. I often sleep with them on, which works well but can be uncomfortable if you lay on your side. They work very well as computer headphones, the cord is long enough to comfortably reach the jack and allow motion (this is not possible with many computer set ups aside from laptops for people with ipod earbuds etc). They improve gaming experience a lot as you feel like you're in the room with whatever is happening. The soft covers are easy to change with a little twist and quite comfortable. The mediums fit me best, and they come with a larger pair, a smaller pair, and a third two-piece pair that I don't like at all, but some might. I'm not an audiophile, but the sound quality is so much better than cheap headphones that these are definitely worth it for the price. They have a full range with good bass presence that isn't overbearing. They also have the potential to get Extremely loud should you desire that.

Before buying the Metro.fi 2s, I extensively researched the market and tried many competitor products. These included many Sonys, the CX3000, and Etymotic ER-6i. After purchasing the metro.fi 2s, I have absolutely no complaints. The ER-6is left me yearning for more bass. The treble was great but I needed more bottom end. The CX-3000s were better on bass, but now I wanted more treble. I then learned that Ultimate Ears had started making headphones for the normal consumer. The metro.fi 2s were exactly what I needed. The chord is long enough for my tall frame and the chord is thick enough so it doesnt get tangled like the ER-6is did. The sound quality is amazing. I listen to a lot of alternative punk and pop punk, such as Amber Pacific, All Time Low, Asteria, Just Surrender, etc... The high hats were audible but not overpowering, the vocals were fresh and crisp, and the low end was perfectly balanced. The metro.fi 2s make the music sound exactly like what the artist wanted. I am absolutely thrilled with these headphones and would recommend them to anyone.

I'll preface this by saying that my ears are very hard to fit. They are on the large side, and most earbuds simply pop out of my ears each time I turn my head.
I bought these Metro.fi 2's because of the good reviews. They are packaged extremely well, have great build quality, and the sound is very good.
But for me, even with the largest of the 3 ear flanges, they are not big enough to fit my ears with a good seal. The largest rubber tip is just a bit too small.
I tried all sizes of the included rubber ear tips. I tried the smaller ones, and tried jamming them deep into my ears. They popped out right out.
I tried the large ones, and had the same problem. They dont stay in.
I was very disappointed. I really wanted these to fit me. I love the quality and sound of these. The look is great and the cord is thick and long.
They even come with a leather case.
Too bad the dont stay in my ears.
Earphone manufacturers need to include a larger variety of eartip sizes for us big folks.
