Ultimate Ears by Logitech unveiled their latest in ear headphones today.  The MetroFi 170 and MetroFi 220 are reported to create ‘a magic seal between your ear and the outside world’, significantly reducing outside ambient noise by as much as 16dBs.  They achieve this feat by using silicone ear-cushions that conform to your ears’ canal.  To add a little more pizazz to the press release, the MetroFi’s include titanium-coated speakers, which Logitech claims produces ‘more detail in the higher-frequency range for deeper bass and clear treble’.  Also available are the MetroFi 170vi and 220vi, which include an inline mic and answer button specifically built for iPhone and Blackberry users.

The MetroFi 170 and the MetroFi 220 will hit stores this February for $50 and $80 respectively.  Tack on $10 if you want the VI version.
