    I am a professional, classically trained musician and I have had these earphones for two weeks. I listen to mainly classical music, and have quite a collection of jazz and pop from various eras to which I listen as well. These earphones are wonderful. I did extensive research and returned several pairs of earphones (including Shure) before deciding on these.

    These are canalphones, so you MUST have a good seal or you will not get proper sound. This means you have to choose the right fitting rubber inserts before they will work properly. The previous reviewer must have not fitted them properly because the sound is phenomenal when these are plugged in!

    These phones have dual drivers for highs and lows. There is a lot of chatter on the internet about a weak high-end to these UE's, but I do not find that to be the case at all. The high-end is clear and defined. The strong low end, which is superb, may give many a scewed reference since most canalphones do not have good low ends, but the bass does not overpower the upper registers. Contrary to popular belief on the web, classical music sounds best when there is enough bass along with the highs. Just go to a live classical concert and listen for yourself! There is plenty of bass to go around! These phones are perfect for classical or for any type of music.

    The other advantage to these phones is that you can change the wire and plugs yourself if they break or if you want a different cord of a different color. The earphones come with two nice cases, one all metal and the other in leather and the the accessorries all fit neatly together in the metal case.

    Another nice feature is that there is little to no sound leakage.

    The UE Super fi 5 Pros have been designed to provide clear, balanced sound in a highly portable and comfortable product. As of this moment I think they represent a kind of "best buy" for iPod owners seeking to upgrade from the stock white earbuds supplied with their music players.

    A key to optimal enjoyment of these IEM's is selection of the appropriate ear tip from the several provided, including a compressible foam version and several types and sizes of rubber tips. Once a proper in-ear seal is achieved (yes, moistening the rubber tips is helpful), the resultant sound quality is excellent. Since the Super fi Pros don't require deep insertion into the ear canal, wearers can avoid the potential discomfort associated with some other high-quality IEM's.

    The over-the-ear design of the earpiece wires ensures that these UE's will fit securely even during exercise. The cord, however, is very thin and appears delicate. These UE cords are also more prone to tangling than any I have ever encountered. It's a good thing that the supplied metal storage case includes a winder.

    The balanced two-driver design produces good musical detail, decent but not spectacular treble, and excellent bass reproduction. Those seeking the very best in musical detail, however, should consider instead the Etymotic ER-4 in-ear models. On the other hand, the bass response of the UE's is far fuller than that of the Ety's. For any kind of music in which bass slam is essential, the UE's are an excellent choice.

    The use of an auxilliary headphone amp tightens up the sound quality a bit, but these IEM's are so easy to drive that an amp is not necessary. This model, in fact, seems well-suited to produce high-volume output with any portable.

    I recently received my Ultimate Ears super.fi Pro 5's, and I've got to add my voice to the resounding "praise" that is echoed again and again here and elsewhere. There are few products that I feel deserve my praise, and I'm a pretty picky guy with it comes to electronics. That said, I feel like I have to tell you that these are easily the best in-ear-monitors (IEMs) that I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Like others have said, they reveal hidden details in music you already own, and for me, they seem to "unleash" the true dynamic range of the music I love.

    I listen to all types of music: from sacred to heavy metal/progressive rock, from ambient to pop (okay, well just a little "pop"), from classical to jazz ... you get the idea. I was a little concerned before I dropped my hard-earned money on these super.fi 5 Pro's that they might not live up to their lofty reputation. Well, I've got to tell you that these babies simply _blew_ my mind. Crisp highs (ZERO sibilance), strong mid-range (GREAT presence), and extremely well-defined and controlled bass (I'm a self-confessed bass-head and these are the bomb-diggity). I opted for 5 Pro's in lieu of the 5 EB's because it IS possible to have too much bass, and lose the music in the wash of low-end sound -- I prefer a more "audiophile" response, and can always EQ to my tastes.

    Like the others have said, with any IEM (and the Pro 5's are no exception) a good seal in your ear is a must. The excellent variety of included "tips" will provide most owners with the perfect fit. I personally use the small silicone tips, and I have no troubles inserting or removing the headphones. In fact, for me, they're so comfortable that I hardly notice I'm wearing them after a short while.
