The UE Reference Monitor was developed in collaboration with Capital Studios and is designed for producers and studio engineers who need high accuracy and detail.
In early 2018 it was remastered with engineers from Capital Studios based on the sounds of their state-of-the-art facility. The UE Reference Monitor is designed to reintroduce the harmonic structure and overtones that are usually missing from most headphones.
As with all Ultimate Ears models, the UE Reference Monitor is customized to fit your ears only. We take a mold of your ear and build the speakers inside a shell to the exact contours of your ears.
Designed with your color choice and option for bluetooth and/or regular cable, the UE Reference Monitor has a commitment to fidelity like no other earphone.
1) Cable option: Bluetooth or standard. (We suggest a standard cable for this earphone to get the maximum resolution)
2) Color option: See image of included color options. More colors and designs available for additional cost and can be upgraded at time of ear impressions.
3) Carry case option: Circle or square case enscribed with your name or nickname.
Process: Use the checkout to place your order and AR Custom Ears will schedule you for ear impressions within 24 hours. During the ear impressions appointment, Adam will go through the cable, color and holding case options that you want. If you want additional options, this can be processed during the appointment. After the ear impressions, it will take no longer than 14 working days to get your UE18s in your ears.
Payment method: Cash, bank transfer, debit, credit card.
