Employing the same stage-proven Ultimate Ears technology relied on by major touring acts, the IE-30 professional reference earphones provide rich, high-definition monitoring for mobile recording/production and live performanceânot to mention critical listening of all types
of music on the go. Dual precision-balanced armature drivers with integral crossover deliver more clarity, greater headroom and much wider frequency response than more expensive products from other manufacturers. 26dB of isolation further contributes to extraordinary detail
and incredible tonal balance. Professional ear loops secure the earphones in place while minimizing snags, while the included universal fit
kit ensures optimal comfort and isolation. 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 technologyâthe same industry standard that has revolutionized live performance monitoring. Many of today's best-known touring artists and the sound engineers that make their concerts sound great trust Ultimate Ears for the utmost in comfort, accuracy and reliability.
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 studioâlike 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.
Dual Precision-Balanced Armature Drivers with Crossover Network
The rich, full-spectrum sound of the IE-30 reference earphones owes much to the use of two separate high-definition, precision-balanced armature drivers for high/mid and bass frequencies. Armature driversâthe same technology used in premium custom earphonesâdelivers high efficiency, extended high frequencies and superb natural bass and are significantly smaller and more accurate than comparable dynamic drivers. The IE-30 audio crossover network routes each frequency of your music to the driver that can best reproduce itâexactly the same principle as used in the finest studio and audiophile monitor design. Patented dual-bore technology rounds out the equation by providing separate acoustic canals for each driver's output to deliver a wider sound stage and much fuller sound.
Superior Frequency Response
Without good frequency response, you're missing most of your music. The IE-30 XB delivers an amazing 20Hz-16kHz frequency response,
twice that of the closest competitorâand the IE models cost several hundred dollars less.
Universal Fit Kit for Superior Isolation and Comfort
Superior sound isolation (16dB) minimizes outside sound to deliver a purer listening experienceâeliminating 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 a 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.
The IE-30 earphones include an attenuator/limiter that conditions the high sound output of in-flight movie and music channels down to a comfortable listening level. The limiting function even spares your ears during loud in-flight announcements.

I'm a bass musician and am unable to practice using an amplifier where I live..ie, neighbors! I wanted a quality headphone to practice through that would deliver true bass tones. I also didn't want conventional over the ear headphones. The M-AUDIO IE-30 really does the job. It's great for live in the ear monitors, practice or just listening to my i-pod. I'm hearings tones I never heard before im my music! They are worth every penny they cost. The only thing I didn't like is the wires are a heavy gauge wire and are somewhat stiff, but it doesn't take long to get used to it. Overall quality is top notch!
The ie-30's are well worth every penny. These in ear headphones arent quite like any others I've listened to before, the quality of the sound is unbelivable, I have a pair of pioneer hdj-1000's and these blow them out of the water! The different pitchs of sound seem to come in different levels and the experience is like non others! A+ earphones.
If you're looking to get in to the in-ear monitor realm these are great to get and are way more budget friendly than the Shure E5. The IE 30's cost exactly half of the E5, with the same great function!! A great move to make, I AM VERY SATISFIED!!!
