The Edition 8 headphones from Ultrasone bring you beautiful craftsmanship, modern technology, and outstanding audio quality in an elegant package. Hand-made in Germany with the utmost attention to detail, the Edition 8 headphones come in a custom bag crafted from Madras goatskin for storage and transportation. The earpads and headband are made from genuine Ethiopian sheepskin leather that provides such a high degree of softness and smoothness, you won't even know you're wearing the headphones. This leather also provides a high degree of natural noise isolation. The earcups are covered in Ruthenium, a metal known for its brilliance and durability.

The 40mm tri-bass-tube titanium-plated Mylar drivers provide an ultra-wide frequency response to bring out the deepest bass and clearest treble in your music, ideal for monitor reference, engineering, mastering, and audiophiles. MU-metal shielding technology helps to reduce magnetic field emissions by up to 98%. The cable and detachable extension provide you with plenty of slack, while the gold-plated 3.5mm stereo mini plug and 1/4" adapter allow you to connect to a wide variety of consumer and professional audio devices.

Ultrasone's S-Logic Plus Natural Surround Sound technology pushes the sound around your head to create an enveloping response that creates a high degree of space and realism. Decentralized driver positioning allows the headphones to take advantage of the shape of the ear. Instead of directing sound directly into the ear canal like standard headphones, the sound reflects off the surface of the outer ear to create natural 3D sound. The S-Logic Plus technology also provides a lower dB output with the same perceived loudness. This means you can listen at lower volume levels, which may reduce the risk of hearing damage.

      Comments about Ultrasone Edition 8 Closed-Back Stereo Headphones:

      I bought this headphones almost two years ago. These are the best headphones I've ever had. They are closed, and I could easily commute or listen to the music at home without bothering anyone, and still enjoy the HQ sound.

        Comments about Ultrasone Edition 8 Closed-Back Stereo Headphones:

        sometimes we ask our friends and family to listen to our audio products, most of the time responses are good or something like that, but when i asked three different people to test the sound of edition 8, they continued listening and i had to stop them to ask the same question again and their smiles told all. So if your sound source is good, it will perform like a true rock star.

        only one complaint i do have about edition 8 is, it doesn't have mercy for under per recording or audio source.
