eCoustics Senior Headphone Editor W. Jennings recently sat down with Vincent Liu, Ultimate Ears Pro’s Head of Product & Operations for a conversation about the new Premier 21-driver IEM. This discussion touches on the impacts of the pandemic on Ultimate Ears Pro and how that provided opportunities to rethink some design elements of existing models as well as complete the development and testing of the new Premier.
Also discussed in this conversation is UE Pro’s dedication to performing artists, their design philosophy and about where the new Premier’s signature fits into the product line. Many expected the Premier to be a UE18 Pro taken to the next level but the signatures are different and the two in-ears are aimed at different market segments. Finally, there was talk about some of the things that set Ultimate Ears Pro apart from other in-ear manufactures and where Vincent sees the company heading next.
