Recognizing that accuracy is at times an elusive goal, I would say that Ultimate Ears’ In-Ear Reference Monitor is arguably the most accurate and neutral sounding in-ear monitor Playback has tested to date, which is a terrific achievement. In our view, sonic honesty is one of those rare gifts that keeps on giving, and it’s a gift you can enjoy every single time you put a set of IERM’s in your ears and settle back to enjoy your favorite recordings. We might also mention that the IERM makes a very useful tool for those of us who work as equipment reviewers, because this trustworthy monitor makes it easy to assess what other components in the signal chain are doing.
