Ultrasone Edition 8 Palladium overview

  • 1Description

The Edition 8 Palladium headphones from Ultrasone combine hand-made German craftsmanship with innovative engineering to deliver a hi-fi listening experience for professional and personal applications.

The headphones come with a transportation bag crafted from Madras goatskin. The earpads and headband are made from genuine Ethiopian sheepskin leather that provides a high degree of softness and smoothness. This leather also provides a high degree of natural noise isolation. Aesthetically, the headphones are accented with palladium to ensure they look as good as they sound.

The 40mm tri-bass-tube titanium-plated Mylar drivers provide a wide frequency response to bring out deep bass and clear treble in your music. They can be used for monitor reference, engineering, mastering, and audiophiles. MU-metal shielding technology helps to reduce magnetic field emissions by up to 98%. The headphones come with a non-detachable 3.9' (1.2m) USC cable with an 1/8" (3.5mm) gold-plated plug. A 13' (4m) USC extension cable with an 1/8" (3.5mm) gold-plated plug as well as a 1/8" to 1/4" gold-plated adapter are also included to allow you to connect to a wide variety of consumer and professional audio devices.

The company's S-Logic Plus Natural Surround Sound technology reflects sound off the outer ear to create a more enveloping listening experience that creates a high degree of space and realism. Decentralized driver positioning allows the headphones to take advantage of the shape of the ear. 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 fatigue.

Large tri-bass-tube titanium-plated Mylar drivers provide a wide frequency response for a precise, detailed, and natural sound, ideal for monitor reference, engineering, mastering, and audiophiles
S-Logic Plus Technology
Patented S-Logic Plus Natural Surround Sound technology uses decentralized drivers to create a spacious 3D sound experience that puts you right in the middle of the music. It also lets you listen at lower volume levels for the same perceived loudness, which may help reduce hearing damage
ULE MU-Metal Shielding
The Ultra Low Emission (ULE) shielding was designed with the professional in mind. Many pros spend the majority of their time wearing headphones. The special MU-metal shielding helps to reduce radiation by up to 98% compared to other headphones
Hand-crafted in Germany with the highest attention to detail

    Ultrasone Edition 8 Palladium reviews

    Edition 8 Palladium Closed-Back Stereo Headphones is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from edition8 short and sweet : one of the best headphones on the market (have tested a few! some I own!) edition8 stands out in it's own class (next week possibly getting HD800S and may change my mind!) ! as for now ?! - and it comes w/reservation (cause the HPs aren't perfect (explain later!)) best sound I can get out shape/form / let me explain : OUT OF THE BOX : did not like the sound - brightness and crunchiness were overwhelming / very few HPs I had to burn in from get-go ! edition8 was the first I couldn't tolerate (+ @ a List Price: $2,249.99 / can be had for under $1,700 for new) and at a price point ?! wow in a worst way ! BURN IN : after 60 - 70 hours on my desk burning my impression reversed to the point where it crossed my mind : headphones been switched, exchanged, stolen and replaced ! unbelievable sound-stage w/clarity and detail, outstanding separation in instruments and vocals (especially w/HI-RES material!) and all of the above from closed and more or less portable set! SOUND and COMFORT : they are still bright - actually a tag brighter than my AKG K712 (which I consider one of my brightest but open !) and the brightness extends to lower end which brings out details never heard before ! lows are punchy and rumbly in some cases (R. Bona live (where it's down and dirty never sounded batter!) where needed + you get unsurpassed detail w/o distortion ! love that part ! As far as comfort goes - would say : the most comfortable pair I tried by far : they are light and leather is pleasing to touch ! I have a normal size (what is normal ?!) melon (head) and clamping force is there - but barely noticeable + believe ?! it's a memory foam ! BUILT : one word is superb / solid all machined aluminum construction w/leather so soft - you don't want to take 'em off ! attention to detail is impressive to the point of little felt stripe glued on the headband extension so the aluminum doesn't have a contact w/ear-cup ! well done ultrasone ! PLUSES : sound, comfort, sonic detail, built quality and materials used, 5 (7 if you register online) warranty MINUSES : price ?!, non detachable cable, you have to burn in out of the box! at this price point - ! - you shouldn't ! BOTTOM LINE : a very unique set of headphones - sound rivals better open backs / edition8 are closed !, more or less portable and you get a good seal/sound isolation (if you are planing to take it on a trip (airplane) - I wouldn't !) you are paying for : sound - material - quality and research & development ! superb job ULTRASONE ! btw - pay attention on the way you putt on your headphones - they are not vividly marked L & R and markings are on inside of the headband ! since the driver is slightly angled and off center (actually moved forward and lower ! per what I could find) so, sound is intended to travel into your ear-cups (I guess the way nature intended ?!) reversing L & R will affect the way HPs sound ! cables are a bit angled forward - but you have to pay attention / easily could be reversed ;)
