This discussion says that to use unicode phonetic signs one needs the following:

\documentclass{scrartcl}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[T1]{tipa}
\usepackage[tipa]{ucs}
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}

\begin{document}

fə'nɛtiks

\end{document}

Is there an easier way?

Compile with xelatex or lualatex:

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setmainfont{Doulos SIL}% or your preferred font for phonetics
\begin{document}
fə'nɛtiks
\end{document}

With xelatex or lualatex, you don’t load fontenc or inputenc, your source must be utf-8, and you can use any unicode-encoded truetype or opentype font that has the symbols you need.
