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 performance—not 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 technology—the 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. See who’s using Ultimate Ears technology.

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.

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 drivers—the same technology used in premium custom earphones—delivers 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 it—exactly 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 delivers an amazing 20Hz-16kHz frequency response, twice that of the closest competitor—and the IE models cost several hundred pounds less.

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.

Included Attenuator/Limiter

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.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
