Developed specifically for musicians, M-Audio IE-10 professional reference earphones incorporate stage-proven Ultimate Ears technology
to deliver studio quality sound anywhere you need it. Featuring precision balanced armature technology and 26dB of isolation, the IE-10
is great for live and mobile monitoring”with the added benefit of being a serious upgrade to the earbuds that came with your personal audio player. The IE-10 delivers better bass response and higher input sensitivity for more sound than anything else in it's price range. The included universal fit kit ensures optimal comfort and fit, and pro style ear loops wrap over and behind the ear to keep cables out of the way, relieve cable tension and help keep the earphones in place for a perfect fit. The detachable 46" cable is even replaceable to
extend the life of your investment.

Proven Ultimate Ears Technology
M-Audio professional reference earphones incorporate acclaimed Ultimate Ears technology”the same industry standard that has revolutionized live performance monitoring. Many of today's best known touring artists and the sound engineers who make their
concerts sound great trust Ultimate Ears for the utmost in comfort, accuracy and reliability.

Monitor Anywhere
M-Audio is synonymous with the mobile recording and production revolution. Now M-Audio IE professional reference earphones with Ultimate Ears technology give you high-definition monitoring on the go without lugging bulky, delicate headphones. They're perfect companions for
any mobile studio”like a Pro Tools M-Powered laptop with Transit or other M-Audio interface. They're also ideal for field recording with compact units like the popular M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96. On stage, you can say goodbye to cumbersome monitors and feedback. And you can even use them to pimp your personal MP3 player for critical listening on the go.

Precision-Balanced Armature Drivers
All IE professional reference earphones employ advanced, precision-balanced armature drivers”the same technology used in premium custom earphones”to deliver high efficiency, extended high frequencies and superb natural bass. Armature drivers are also significantly smaller and more accurate than comparable dynamic drivers, which is part of the reason why IE professional reference monitors are so compact.

Universal Fit Kit for Superior Isolation and Comfort
Superior sound isolation (26dB) minimizes outside sound to deliver a purer listening experience”eliminating the need for a bulky pair of noise-canceling headphones. This also helps protect your ears because you don't have to crank up the volume to hear the detail in your music. All IE models include our universal fit kit to ensure optimal isolation and comfort for hours of high-quality listening pleasure. It includes an assortment of ear tips in different sizes and materials for a personalized fit for your ears.

Professional Ear Loops
The hanging cables in traditional designs can catch on nearby objects and cause the earpieces to loosen or pop out altogether. All IE
models feature professional-style loops that hook over and behind the ear to minimize that problem. And if your 46" detachable cable
ever does become damaged, simply replace it instead of your earphones.

Really good stuff!

By Stu McC

from Orange, CT

These M-Audio in-ears are basically repackaged Ultimate Ears models, so you know the quality is there. I bought these a while ago and after some heavy use I can honestly say that I'm very happy with them. The isolation is satisfactory for stage use (I'm a heavy-handed drummer), the sound is crystal clear, and a big bonus are the exchangeable ear cushions in different sizes, which let you customize your personal fit. The only grip I have is that the includes carrying case is a) a soft case and b) too small to actually hold the earphones! I can recommend them, but do plan on getting some other type of case, the included on really is a joke.

Beats the Shure In Ear Hands Down ! ! !

By S. Bryant

from Mid-Atlantic Region

I'm a drummer. Bought these and could not believe the bass responce out of em'. They isolate sound so well I can hardly hear myself without being mic'd. Plugged it right into the stage headphone amp and it lit these babies up!!! Shure has nothing for em'. One thing that the description forgot to mention was these come with the gold plated 1/4" connector, so don't buy one. If these sound this good I wonder what the IE-30's sound like? A chunk of change at $250. They also work perfect on an ipod, the computer, or anything you can plug it into. They even sound awsome plugged into the headphone jack in the back of my Ford Expedition. Play hard, fast and often.

By frank

from Sunny So. CAL yo!!!!

this is one awesome set of headphones, you get more bang for your buck than you would buying SHURE or any other stuff. i play drums/guitar/bass in a church of about 600-700 and i use them mostly when i drum and let me tell you, i get great isolation and sound from the rest of the band (and myself) when i use these and they NEVER fall out. of course you have to find the right tips for these to maximize their full potential. i love these and i'll ONLY make the jump to the higher-end M-AUDI0 phones. you won't regret getting these :)

Best 100 bucks ever spent!!!

By Anthony LV

from Las Vegas, NV

If you take 5 minutes to learn how to fit these earphones properly, you won't be disappointed, a lot of people complain because they are clueless. These are professional reference monitors, and quite inexpensive I might add. I bought them for my IPod, and use with other guitar gadgets for bedroom practice, I already have the Sony V900HD and AKG's for tracking in my home studio, and in my humble opinion, these little earphones keep up really good with the big cans, the sound is crystal clear, I didn't notice any distortion so far, even at high levels, and the detail is amazing, what you put in is what you hear, I even went outside and the isolation from external noise (traffic) was excellent. I will be using them a lot in the studio, since they are a lot more comfortable than the "big cans". I highly recomend them to anybody looking for high quality reference monitoring, or upgrade to your personal MP3 player.


These are the real deal!

By Jason Strand

from Spokane Wa.

After my band made the switch to in ear monitors, we were continuously looking for headphones that would work without having to spend the fortune that they usually are! And the IE-10 headphones are perfect! Here's the trick, use Shure EAORF2-10M foam buds. 'Come in a package of ten pairs(orange color). They fit exactly and deaden exterior sound VERY well. 'Just like using ear plugs. It's important that you take a couple minutes to get familiar with how the headphones will fit your ear. Do it right and they will not pop out. I'm a drummer, always moving and usually loud and these stay in AND block out! Great product!


Doesn't Last

By Kyle

from celina, oh

I bought a pair of these earphones for use with my sennheiser in ear monitors. I used them for about 2 months and took good care of them (probably a total of 5 or 6 four hour shows). One of the buds quit on me. They just didn't last. For 100 bucks I would expect to get some decent use out of them
