How did you settle on Ultimate Ears? After months of research, pricing and although there are plenty of great choices I ended up purchasing UE’s, UE has become one of the most respected audio companies in the USA. Do you use your UE’s exclusively in a live environment or have you tried them out in the studio?

Power and portability are self-explanatory, translation means: am I confident that I am hearing an accurate representation of my project? And is what I am hearing going to translate to other sound systems? Ultimate Ears UE PRO nailed it.  Recently, I was forced to do the lion’s share of my audio production…
