Ultimate Ears 18 Pro Earbuds Stuff In Six Drivers Per Bud

For a quick primer on why multiple drivers (usually) matters, check out our Giz Explains on the subject - but suffice to say, more drivers often equals more better, and six is freaking crazy for earbuds.

Ultimate Ears, recently bought by Logitech, scored pretty highly on our Cut-the-Crap Earbud Battlemodo in the mid-range categories, but the 18 Pro buds are pure high-end: It's got two drivers each for bass, mids and highs, in each bud. It's not a sure thing that that'll translate to better sound, and for the $US1350 asking price, it'd better - but given UE's track record, these could be pretty ultimate indeed. [Engadget]
