News: UE's IERM and FA's Genesis

So Ultimate Ears announced another custom this week and it is called the 'In-Ear Reference Monitor'. In the audio world, the word 'reference' is generally overused to emphasize the technical aspect of a particular product. For this IEM however, it is meant to tell people that it is designed for actual on-stage and studio usage (mixing, live recording, etc). Being a 'reference class' gears, one thing UE want to make clear is that this IEM really do measured very flat (though they never did show any frequency graph) and it is a collaboration work between UE and the Capitol Studios.Though I have no doubt about Capitol Studios being good at what they do, I am really not too sure why UE needs someone else to tell them how to make an ruler flat IEM. The only interesting thing to see is that UE adapters a new type of curved connector on the cable and likely will make it more comfortable on wearing. Spec wise, from the information so far it seems the IERM has a two combined treble + mid drivers and a bass driver in a two ways setup. The MSRP is almost $1k and you can expect to pay more after including the earmold and shipping fee.

On another news, Fischer Audio has recently released / announced a few more new IEM. One of them, the Genesis is about to be released very soon (it looks gorgeous, right?). FA has certainly grown a lot more since their first appearance. Things that I do hope they can do better is to improve their manufacturing process and try to speed things up a bit, plus bringing their website more up-to-date with current information could really do them some good.

Beside getting free review samples, I don't work for or get paid by anyone to write anything on this website, or anywhere else in that matter. Also, free review samples are never sold for any financial gain. I do buy gears and review them, but for simplicity you (the reader) should always assume what I review is free sample in nature (and thus comes with all the bias). The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile. Oh, and excuse my writing as I am not a native English speaker and can't afford a proofreader. Also, just because I don't write in a negative tone doesn't mean I don't write down the negative aspect of a gear. Please read them carefully.
