Logitech has released a set of in-ear headphones this morning to sit right near the very top of their Ultimate Ears range. The UE 700s are noise isolators with dual armature drivers with one for bass and midrange and the other for high end and midrange.
They come in a hard case but weigh just 11.6g and will block out up to 26 dB of ambient sound with their snug-fitting, soft-silicone or foam compy ear cushions. You get three different sizes when you buy the £149.99 device just to make sure there’s no gaps between your lug holes and the rest of the world.
The idea is that you can listen to music at a relatively low level and so don’t end up distorting the sound of your music from pushing it too hard through whatever in-built amp you’re using.
Not cheap but, if the rest of the Ultimate Ears range is anything to go by, worth the money. Seventy-five per cent of the music industry can’t be wrong.
