UE5 or UE4?

Paul461, 27.08.2012
Like many other interested parties of the adapted listeners of Ultimate Ears, I was before the purchase before deciding whether it should be the UE4 or UE5. In the internet, I found in some forums the information that UE5 and UE4 were technically equivalent, and only the scope of the case differed in that the UE4 had a smaller case and with these listeners no own color selection is possible. This information was confirmed to me by phone from a Thomann employee.

After I continued to research further and found differences in the technical data, I was skeptical and asked directly about the distribution of Ultimate Ears, the company Fischer Amps. Jochen Fischer from Fischer Amps told me on the phone that this information is not correct, but the UE5 a stronger bass driver is installed, which leads to a somewhat more powerful reproduction of the bass frequencies. The UE4 are more "more harmonious" and more linear. However, the built-in center / high-frequency driver is the same in both versions. On my request, Jochen Fischer invited me to Osterburken to listen to the two listeners. In the company in Osterburken, there are the two listeners with universal adapters, so that you can hear the differences in direct comparison.

During the hearing test I could make clear differences in the sound. The UE5 is indeed much more present in the bass frequencies, however, the UE4 also sounds very very good. The difference is not huge but it is there.

I chose the UE5 and am very happy with it. Whether the price difference is justified, everyone has to decide for themselves, both listeners are quite close to one another, only the ratio of the bass - mids / high frequencies is somewhat different. If you do not need a strong bass and no case with engraved name is with the UE4 surely very well advised.

Comfort and quality at the RDV

Cédriccampays, 27.10.2014
These headphones are very powerful. I am guitarist and I sing a little.
I used the Shure Se215 before, which are the entry-level IEM.
I wanted to go to the next level and with these Ultimate ears UE5, I was really pleasantly surprised.
First of all, the cable is braided with a very flexible and rigid material at the same time, it is almost impossible to transform it into a knot bag.
The headphones really look solid.
The hard case supplied with you allows you to store your IEM in place on.

As for the sound, the fact that it is molded and goes a little in the ear canal, allows to have a very present sound and defines without having to mount the volume of its system. I almost halved compared to my old IEMs.
(= Saving energy on its belt box ...)
The Basses / Mediums and Treble are very clean. It is a real pleasure to make a little mix inside it no matter what one sends there one feels that the headphones cash without flinching.

For the mold, think of asking your hearing specialist to make you open your mouth while taking the impression because otherwise when singing or opening your mouth (for the singer) one can feel a loss of self- Isolation because the ear canal deforms.

Otherwise the insulation is excellent and the presence of filter with filters 12 and 26 db is a true more to this model!
We go from a half isolation to make a mix while keeping an ear on what happens outside for small stage or incomplete mix.
And isolation -26db isolates 100% perfect for big conditions with big scene.

thank you

Conclusion: Versatile model suitable for any kind of practice, comfort and sound quality. We pay a bit expensive but the quality is at the appointment.
I recommend them to anyone wishing to move from a beginner model to semi pro / pro models.
