In a previous installment of UE University we talked about the fantastic Sound Guard that UE debuted at NAMM this year. We spoke with Engineer Joe Saggio on some of the more technical sides of Sound Guard. Hey Joe, thanks for taking some time to chat with us. Can you tell us about what Ultimate Ears Sound Guard does? Sound Guard provides 2 functions. (1) Audio Signal Buffering (2) Audio Spike attenuation. What do those…

One of the questions I frequently get asked as people are considering the move over to IEMs is this: “What happens if someone drops a mike, or there is feedback? I’m really worried about how that might be harmful.” It’s a really valid question. IEMs are designed not to pop out of your ears and the thought of some  crazy loud sound spike can definitely make you squeamish. UE to the rescue.   At the…

Things break, especially on the road, And when they do not only will you lose the use of your IEMs for a while ( and that is no good) but how much will it cost to get you back up and running? It’s the stuff of nightmares. Fear not. One of the greatest things about UE is the brilliant customer service. From the creation of the customs to the service rendered after it’s the best…

My kid is in a band that is starting to get some attention, which means they are playing a lot of shows. She’s still in her early teens, but I was thinking about getting her a set of IEMs. but I wasn’t sure what the minimum age is recommended for getting impressions?

In the previous installment, I talked about how the UERM and the AK120 became my new tools of choice for on-the-move mixing and referencing. These two products are a creative workhorse beyond my wildest expectations. I stumbled into using this setup while writing, and I might never go back. While mixing, I found that the soundstage was impeccable and that I loved the clarity of the individual mix elements when pairing the UERM with AK120.…

I needed to use my studio on the road. I needed power, portability and translation — the triumvirate of the modern producer / mixer. 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…

Somethings off. I’m hearing a buzzing in both sides of my in-ear monitors. Any clue as to why? Something is off. But based on what you’re saying, I don’t suspect that it’s the monitors themselves. You see, since the sound is generated by balanced armatures rather than by dynamic coils like most typical headphones, there are a few tell-tale signs to listen for when diagnosing an issue. Buzzing is not typically associated with a bad…
