Logitech purchased the Ultimate Ears earphone company a long while back. Ultimate Ears makes some very nice sets of earbuds that can be had in audiophile grade offerings that are expensive down to affordable sets that the normal consumer might be interested in. I have used several Ultimate Ears earphones and they generally perform well. Logitech has announced new additions to the line.
The new Ultimate Ears models are the 500, 350, 200, as well as the 500vi and 200vi offerings. The 500 is the flagship offering of the new models with a small design made to sit flush with the ears and noise isolation with a detailed sound stage. The 500vi is the same earphones with inline controls and a mic for use with music phones like the iPhone. The 350 is a set of earphones that are optimized for lots of bass and to resist sweat during workouts.
The 200 series are budget offerings with a low profile design and come in pink, black, and blue colors. The 200vi is designed for use with music phones like the iPhone with a 3.5mm headphone jack and controls for music along with a mic for voice calls. The 200 sell for $29.99, the 350 will cost $49.99, and the 500 will sell for $69.99 the vi versions add $10 to the price of the normal offerings. All of the new headsets will ship in September.
