UE Reference Remastered Sound Signature Deep Dive

Get a closer look at UE Reference Remastered, and learn why it’s an excellent choice for critical listening in the studio or at home.

If you’re considering which sound signature is best for you, we’ll help narrow it down. All UE sound signatures are designed to reproduce audio faithfully, but some models are better suited for different applications. Our UE Reference Remastered (RR) sound signature is a critical listening tool that reproduces music the way it’s meant to be heard. In this article, we discuss what makes UE RR a unique option and give you extra insight into our industry-leading earphones and IEMs.
The UE Reference Remastered Story
The UE RR sound signature was created to give mastering and recording engineers and musicians a reliable tool for critical listening. We partnered with Capitol Studios to carefully design drivers that produce a flat frequency response. If you’re looking for an organic, true reproduction of your music, UE RR is the perfect choice for you.


Ultimate Transparency and Accuracy
When creators, studio engineers and producers need to hear pure sound, they turn to UE RR. This sound signature delivers a flat frequency response, so you can hear every voice and instrument in its truest form. So how does UE RR produce a flat response? UE RR features an armature for every part of the frequency spectrum—low, mid and high. Along with the three-way crossover, all frequencies are produced accurately up to 40kHz and as low as 5Hz—beyond the range of human hearing.
Superior Acoustic Isolation
All UE sound signatures are designed to block up to -26dB of ambient noise. When you’re in the studio or listening at home, you can focus on what’s important—your music. All UE earphones and IEMs block noise using passive noise isolation, which is preferred over active noise cancellation, or ANC by audiophiles and musicians alike. What’s the difference between passive noise isolation and ANC? Passive noise isolation blocks sound naturally, whereas ANC is known to cause ear fatigue and distorted sound quality. Worried about feeling too isolated on stage? UE PRO models have an ambient port option that allows ambiance to reach your eardrum through a -12dB filter. When the ports are closed, you’ll experience the full -26dB of noise isolation.

On-Stage or Off
You don’t have to be on stage to experience what UE RR has to offer. Any UE sound signature can be used wherever you want, thanks to two alternate cable styles—the wired SuperBax and wireless Bluetooth cables. Looking for a road-ready cable that can withstand anything? The SuperBax cable is perfect for touring musicians and audio engineers who want a heavy-duty cable. Use the Bluetooth cable when you’re at home or on the go. Both cables are sweat-proof and deliver high quality audio.

Personalize Your Ears

No more limiting yourself to just one faceplate design—now you can have as many as you like and swap them out any time. Customize your design with a variety of colors, materials and decorative details, or even use your own custom artwork. A simple twist-lock mechanism makes swapping styles easy. The UE SWITCH option is available for all models, as well as any existing pair via mail-in upgrade.

Choose Your Fit
There are multiple way to get a custom fit. Your choice of fit depends on personal preference.  Using an audiologist option for fit creates an in-ear monitor that reaches the second bend of the ear canal for the ultimate fit. We use the impressions taken from an audiologist to create an accurate fit shaped to your exact earprint. This fit is popular among performers and musicians who are constantly moving on stage. 
The other fit option is the at-home FitKit option which creates an earphone that reaches the first bend of the ear canal. To create this fit, we ship to you our convenient at-home FitKit to make your ear impressions. We find that audiophiles and music lovers prefer the ease of the FitKit, but these high-quality earphones are great for critical listening in the studio and the stage, too. A universal fit option is also available. 

Handcrafted for Your Ears Only
After we receive your ear impressions via FitKit or your audiologist, we handcraft your earphones or IEMs to perfection using over 100 touchpoints. Whatever fit option you choose, you’ll get a comfortable, secure fit that never falls out. Concerned about your fit? No worries at all. We offer industry-leading white glove customer service to ensure you get the fit you deserve. Our Perfect Fit Guarantee covers repairs and adjustments within the first 90 days after purchase. If any questions arise, just ask! We’ll guide you through the ordering process or clarify the difference between the sound signatures we have available.
