Over the years Ultimate Ears has always been about expressing yourself and carving your own identity of sorts through their wide range of bluetooth speakers. Now they are jumping from one realm of the audio game into another section touching on earphones.
UE FITS are designed to fit truly to a consumer’s ear giving them the perfect fit. As no two ears are alike you may have come across issues where earbuds just don’t fit, fall out, etc. They use a UV light inside that fits them to your ears in under 60 seconds.
This actually isn’t Ultimate Ears first go at earbuds as they have been doing Custom In-Ear Monitors for quite some time. Only thing with those are geared towards professionals, start at $499 and topple over $2,000. Seeing UE hit a spot of $249(preorder $199) I’m curious to see what the final result is.
Check out the video below giving you a better look of the upcoming UE Fits and also the presser. We look to be covering the UE FITS soon.
Ultimate Ears Reinvents Wireless Earphones with UE FITS; Earbuds Instantly Mold to Fit Each Ear
World’s First Truly Wireless Custom Fit Earbuds Shaped to Consumers’ Unique Earprints in Under 60 Seconds, for All-Day Comfort and Premium Sound
NEWARK, Calif. — Oct. 1, 2020 — Ultimate Ears (UE) today introduced UE FITS, the first-ever true wireless earphones with instant custom fit. Similar to fingerprints, each person’s individual ear is unique. No two prints, even on the same person, are the same. UE FITS mold to perfectly fit individual ears in less than a minute with its patented Lightform technology. This goes beyond the standard tip sizes of small, medium and large. From podcasts and playlists on morning commutes, to conference calls while working from home or rocking that evening run, these instant, fit-for-only-you earbuds will stay in place for all-day comfort and deliver an exceptional audio experience.
“We are redefining wireless earphones with UE FITS,” said Jonah Staw, General Manager and Head of Ultimate Ears Custom Earphones. “For the first time ever, we are bringing instant custom fit to premium earbuds. With the press of a button and in under 60 seconds, consumers can experience exceptional comfort and sound quality from earphones that perfectly fit the unique shape of their ears.”
During the intuitive fitting process, the UE FITS app connects to the earbuds and triggers the embedded LEDs, which emit a gentle purple glow of UV light. Lightform technology uses UV light to harden the gel-filled tips to the contours of each ear, transforming them into earbuds that perfectly fit the consumer’s ear in under 60 seconds. This personalized fit provides wearable comfort free of pressure, pain or irritation, even after extended use. UE FITS also offer superior passive noise isolation as the fitted tips create a natural seal that blocks ambient noise.
Built on the acoustic expertise that designs performance-level in-ear monitors for professional musicians, UE FITS are engineered with premium single dynamic 10mm drivers that provide a sound signature that is full, warm and detailed with deep, tight and punchy bass.
UE FITS deliver up to eight hours of continuous listening on a single charge. Through additional charges from the compact case, UE FITS offer over 20 hours of playback. You can play/pause music and answer calls directly from the earbuds. You can also customize the earbud control buttons using the UE FITS app; to activate voice assistant, skip tracks or control volume. With strategically-positioned dual microphones, the earphones are designed to reduce wind noise and enhance call clarity in any situation. These lightweight earbuds are available in three colors: Cloud (Grey), Dawn (Lilac) and Eclipse (Navy).
