Ultrasone Performance Series 840 overview

  • 1Description

The Ultrasone Performance 840 Headphones combine the benefits of the company's S-Logic Plus signal processing, natural surround sound, and ULE MU metal shielding system with soft-touch lacquer and glossy accents in black for an elegantly finished closed-back design. This model's sound signature was designed to provide agile bass using a 40mm dynamic transducer with a PET membrane and NdFeB magnet to deliver a frequency response of 10 to 25,000 Hz with into a 32 ohm load at a maximum SPL of 96 dB.

To ensure comfort for hours of continuous use, the headphones feature an adjustable metal headband and high-quality protein leather ear pads with memory foam that adjust themselves to fit your head and minimize external noise. The unit's ULE MU metal shielding technology reduces the amount of radiation received by the headphones by up to 98%. They come with a 3 m detachable cable with a bayonet connector and a 3.5mm audio jack. They also come with a gold-plated 6.3mm screw on adapter as well as a Neoprene storage pouch. A short 1.2 m cable and velour and memory foam ear pads can be purchased separately.

S-Logic Natural Surround Sound
Uses decentralized driver positioning to take the direct sound of the headphones and reflect it off the surface of the outer ear in different directions before entering the auditory canal to create a natural three-dimensional sound
S-Logic Plus
Combines precision dampening with micro-acoustic reinforcement, allowing the driver, buffer-board, and spatial parameters to complement one another in an optimal manner
S-Logic EX
Uses a funnel-shaped arrangement for the transducer, which allows it to be positioned further away from the ear
Ultra Low Emission MU Metal Shielding
Uses a metal shielding to reduce the radiation generated by the headphones by up to 98%
Memory Foam Earpads
Conforms to the listener's ears to ensure a snug and comfortable fit
Adjustable Metal Headband
Ensures the headphones stay in place

    Ultrasone Performance Series 840 reviews

    Ultrasone Performance Series 840 Headphones is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from NOW I'm an Ultrasone fan! I've never been a huge fan of Ultrasone headphones. That's not to say I don't think they're well made, quality headphones. My first foray into Ultrasone land was the Signature Pros, and I have to say I liked neither the sound signature nor the comfort level (I felt their earcups were just too small and roundish for average sized ears like mine. I read the specs and some reviews of the Performance Series 840 and thought I'd give them a try as at-work headphones to use with my portable DAPs. Boy was I happy I got them -- they sound truly superb! They bring out the absolute best in my iBasso DX90, a depth and immediacy of sound that the much touted V-Moda M-100s couldn't do. The bass is GREAT, but not the thumping distortion of some basshead headphones out there. Very versatile headphone too -- Classical, R&B, Pop, all sound terrific with these cans. Ultrasone, you won me over at last!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable Great Sounding Headphones I bought these from a recommendation from my best friend. I was looking around and asking my friends and family questions about their headphone experiences. One of my friends owned a pair and let me try them. They were in my price point and sounded really good to me. So, I ordered them and have been a very happy customer.
