This, bros and bro-ettes, is the Ultimate Ears’s Pro Reference Remastered custom in-ear. Thanks to e-Earphone’s great custom in-ear service, I got great fit. Like a glove. Like a remastered glove.
The sound from this earphone is as I expected: wide, flat, with low, high and mid details coming through on pretty much equal sound pressure. Add to that amazing decay speed and lack of high-end sibilance and you have, what in my estimation, is one of the least accented customs that sounds great for trance.
Its mids aren’t as airy between instruments as Noble Audio’s K10, nor as generally wide-sounding as Vision Ears’s V6 X Control. It is as unaccented as the latter’s neutral setting, but with a closer, more immediate stage.
I’ll be back with comparisons to my other favourite custom earphones in a proper review.
