The third-generation Ultimate Ears 18+ Pro takes the excellence of the award-winning 18 Pro and adds the new precision True Tone Plus drivers. Also found in the company’s new flagship, the UE Live, these drivers aim to emphasize upper-register harmonics with improved presence and a clear, warm sound. This 18+ Pro is built with six proprietary balanced armatures divided into four frequency bands, plus two True Tone drivers dedicated to the high frequency band. The most significant change from the previous generation is the implementation of an IPX connector to replace the two-pin connector. A durable alternative, the IPX connector is meant to withstand music touring and minimize the need for maintenance.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice from a variety of color and wood finishes. See below for important information on ear impressions and ordering.
Custom in-ear monitors are like custom suits. They need to be tailored to your body. So as part of the ordering process, you'll need to visit an audiologist for ear impressions. Then, you’ll need to mail those impressions to the Ultimate Ears lab (address will be provided). The vendor must receive tracking info on the impressions within 3 weeks of the drop completing, or the offer will be canceled and refunded—no exceptions or extensions.
Headfonia says, "When you start listening to the UE 18+ Pro, the clarity and precision are what will strike you first and most. From bass to treble, the 18+ Pro delivers a high level of clarity with a very clean background. It’s perfectly black and dead silent. The UE 18+ Pro also strikes you with its excellent left/right balance and stereo image, but it doesn’t stop there. Technically, this is a really good monitor that is linear and oh-so precise. UE gave it a neutral tuning and linear presentation, but it is at the same time dynamic and musical … good separation and excellent detail, but it doesn’t get lost in details and never becomes overly analytic … transparent, fast, and precise.”
Domestic orders will be shipped by the vendor.
