Each UE product is handcrafted, precision-tuned and custom-tailored to fit the unique contours of the ear, isolating it from any external noise. This starts with a unique digital scan or physical impression of the ear. Our experts modify the shape to improve comfort and fit for all of the key audio and electronic components where each detail is meticulously developed. The custom ear shell is printed using the latest 3D printing techniques. UE has been 3D printing since 2015 to ensure we are producing a better fitting, more accurate product.

We’ll follow up with a Q&A and demo our new products the UE 6 PRO and UE LIVE. Special pricing is 20% Off and we’ll raffle a UE LIVE!

A raffle is planned, and lunch will be provided. Music lovers, visitors, and members alike are invited. Free parking is available. For more information visit www.laocas.com or call LAOCAS president Bob Levi (714) 281-5850
