Perhaps it's because the manufacturers know the first thing many people do is discard included headphones, and thus they don't want to invest any significant money in the bundled headphones. Or, perhaps it's because quality headphones cost money (which would raise the cost of the overall product), and a good portion of the public doesn't know how good music can really sound with great headphones. Regardless of the reason why bundled headphones are usually of poor quality, if you're still using the standard headphones that came with your Windows Mobile Pocket PC or Smartphone, your music isn't sounding as good as it should.&quot;</em><br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/wey-20061025-ultimateears.jpg" alt="" /><br /><br />Our own Jason Dunn has put together a great review of the Ultimate Ears super.fi headphones over at The Two Inch View. As an audio junkie, I strongly believe that a good set of in-ears or cans is important for enhancing the music listening experience. These Ultimate Ears products seem to do just that.

For those that are curious, I took a few minutes this morning and compared the super.fi 5’s to my Shure E2C’s - perhaps not a fair comparison given that they’re in difference price categories, but remember in my review I had a hard time telling the difference between the super.fi 3’s and the super.fi 5’s…and the Shure E2C’s sound like absolute crap. Honestly, the difference is stunning - everything sounds flat, there’s much less bottom end, no punch in the midrange…man, I used to think my E2C’s were AWESOME…and they are great, compared to regular headphones, but the super.fi headphones just kick the crap out of the Shure E2C’s. And there ya go. http://www.twoinchview.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif
