Ultimate Ears has announced its new flagship custom in-ear monitor Ultimate Ears Live, and Ultimate Ears 6 Pro, both using Ultimate Ears’ hybrid acoustic architecture. Additionally, the entire Ultimate Ears CIEM line-up uses the Ultimate Ears IPX Connection System, a durable new cable connection system that can withstand the rigors of music touring and minimise the need for service and maintenance.

Ultimate Ears LiveUltimate Ears Live is intended for use at festivals, arenas and stadia, as well as by touring musicians. Built with a hybrid acoustic architecture, these monitors incorporate the most complex and powerful acoustic systems Ultimate Ears has developed, including six balanced armatures, one dynamic driver and the True Tone Plus, an upgraded version of Ultimate Ears’ proprietary True Tone Drivers. Each driver is designed to handle its specific frequency range, giving UE Live the purest signal path Ultimate Ears has ever created.

Ultimate Ears 6 Pro was designed as an introductory hybrid solution for drummers, bass players, DJs and hip-hop musicians. Taking advantage of the same hybrid acoustic architecture as UE Live, UE 6 Pro gives warm tonality, along with impactful bass and clear audio reproduction. This design includes two dynamic drivers for midrange and bass, along with Ultimate Ears’ original True Tone Drivers for high-frequency fidelity.

Ultimate Ears 6 ProThe Ultimate Ears IPX Connection System was co-created with estron a/s, and provides a lightweight, IP67 certified sweat-proof, durable connection between cable and connector, allowing for easy swapping between different cable types. Ultimate Ears SuperBax is a road-worthy cable, strong enough to hold a 12lb barbell, yet so lightweight and transparent that it becomes virtually invisible. With significant reliability improvement, this new system can handle thousands of cycles of connect-disconnects.The new UE IPX Connection System can be plugged into any audio interface with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

‘Our intention when designing our new flagship model was to create not only the best sound, but also the most reliable monitor possible,’ says Ultimate Ears VP and GM, Philippe Depallens. ‘With UE Live, you’re getting our best – pure, raw stage energy. We also needed a sweat-proof and tour-proof cable system, so we co-developed a solution from the ground up with a company that specialises in hearing aid and medical-grade cables. The UE IPX Connection System was designed to handle everything a musician deals with nightly – sweat, makeup, hairspray, humidity, set up, break down and travel.’

UE Live and UE 6 Pro are expected to be available and ship worldwide in Q2 2018 through Ultimate Ears and authorised dealers, at suggested retail prices of US$2,199 and US$699, respectively. Numerous colour and custom faceplate options are available.

The UE IPX Connection System is expected to be available worldwide on all custom in-ear monitors orders starting in Q2 2018 through pro.ultimateears.com and authorized dealers. The connection system will be incorporated into the full Ultimate Ears CIEM line-up. You can choose between a 50-inch, 64-inch or Bluetooth version of the system.
