I have UE 18+ custom. I wouldn't get these in universal. As a matter of fact, after I went custom, I don't want to go back to universal and deal with less than ideal fit and foam tips (silicone just doesn't cut it, especially when you're using a $1,200 a pair IEM?!) BUT I can say my 18+ is awesome. I have a pair of 90S (?) and that convinced me to go big. I love the UE sound. Natural, resolving, detailed. If you're bass head, look elsewhere, though. I think their new hybrid should give plenty of bass. I'm not really liking hybrids or dynamic drivers in IEMs.
If you are a bass head go with the UE11Pro - I have it and it’s their bass heaviest offering. Have yet to hear the UE6 though and the live as they are the hybrids.....
I'd agree with you on hybrid's. I haven't found one that has good tuning. However, I have heard some amazing DD IEMs that put BA setup's to shame. They just sound more natural, organic, with good decay. And nowadays with better materials, are matching the speed of a BA. Only problem is, if you want a good DD IEM, they're stupidly expensive but I think it's worth it as they just sound so unique. Sadly for me, BA IEMs are all starting to mush together and sound more similar than unique. How many flat/neutral/reference IEMs do we really need? Just my .02 cents.
I'm also interested in the UE6's. Fingers crossed a review comes out soon.
For a budget bass heavy offering that's not over the top the UE 7's are cheaper. In my opinion they sound cleaner and airier than the 11's.
Well. I didn’t hear them that way. Thankfully my local UE dealer has all models as universals so essy to switch between them. I liked the UE11PRO the best. But again that is personal preference. They have the UE6 as universal now too. So I shall give it a try soon. i guess the one that comes closest for me to the UE11PRO from an enjoyment standpoint would be the Live.....
I also have UE11Pro and I like their bass. Also have JHA Roxanne customs with adjustable bass. And while Roxanne overall sounds better, I couldn't tune it to match UE11's bass - adjustable band is just too wide.
