"You'll pay more to find the same quality and sound!"5.0 starson by omahapianist
Pros: Clean sound, superb detail, highs/mids/lows are wonderfully balanced.
Cons: Has slightly less slam than some of the best dynamic speaker designed earphones.
Summary: I've had my UE 700's for several months and the sound quality and detail is still amazing. The build quality is only a little less solid since Logitech took over but unless you're abusive and careless in handling them, you should never have any problems. These buds are made for the serious audiophile who truly value the best sound for the money. Once you listen to what a balanced armature design can do for your sound, you may not want to go back to your standard earphones. If you have high quality music files (FLAC, lossless, etc.), the results will be simply breathtaking. Even your higher quality MP3 files will sound stunning!
