UE18 Pro -- The great driver wars are upon us

Recommended Posts

JH retaliates with 29.2

UE releases 38.7

JH announces 42.1

Shure comes out with a full size headphone

UE begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

Great to see they switch from the 3 conductor to 4 conductor cable.

That makes it really easy to re-terminate the plug for 'balanced'.

From what jude says it sounds like the JH13 wins for me anyway.

I agree. I'm seriously considering getting the JH13s since I heard them at CJ09 and when I saw the UE announcement, I thought I might have to consider the UE18 Pros too. Having read Jude's comments, I think I might pass on the UE18 Pros and go with the JH13. I'd take some nice treble sparkle over a rich midbass anyday!

JHAudio is only about 30 mins away from me, it might be time to give them a visit. I'm gonna tell my boss I have a "doctor's appointment" some time next week.:indra:

I would also rather give my money to JH Audio than to Logitech.

Jerry's a super nice guy too. I'm sure he can hook me up with some nice artwork and if I end up with fit problems, I won't have to deal with sending my IEMs coast to coast.

Whats the point in the logitech if it only matches the speaker count of a financially cheaper product? They should do moar speakers.

It would seem that Logitech is trying to capitalize on the UE brand recognition that JH helped create. I'm sure there are legions of people who don't realize that JH was Ultimate Ears.

I'm almost contemplating buying one but I don't know what I'd do with two custom IEMs....or maybe I'll just wait & see if UE shows up at CanJam '10 so I can try to win a pair. :P

Meh, from what Jude says I don't think i'll like it either. I absolutely loved the UE11 when I had it, and its midrange was anything but forward and lush to me. I'll be waiting for more impressions but as Monkey also said, I would rather give my money to JH audio than assface Logitech. Even going in person to the UE HQ sucked. I'm sure stepping into Jerrys office for a pair of customs would be an awesome experience just based on chatting with him at CJ'09.

I hope they're great, but I'm totally uninterested. I'm still enthralled with the JH13s every time I put them in my ears, and really don't want anything more.
