For 30+ years, ULTRASONE has been specializing in high-end audiophile, studio, DJ, and music enthusiast headphones. The company’s stated objective is to manufacture advanced headphones with an emphasis on the professional audio sector, while utilizing sustainable materials. All high-end headphones are meticulously handcrafted in Germany. For a complete list of ULTRASONE products, click here.
ULTRASONE invented the ground-breaking S-Logic technology, which uses a proprietary surround-sound simulacrum. Unlike traditional headphones that shoot sound directly into the ear, the S-Logic technology uses decentralized transducer positioning to spread sound over the outer ear to mimic sound heard over speakers. They are also purported to reduce the risk of hearing damage by using remarkably efficient transducers and earcups, shielded to reduce electromagnetic radiation.
The flagship Edition Series is designed for the discerning audiophile or studio engineer where quality is paramount. If you are after the best performance regardless of cost, then definitely check out the Edition 15, Edition 15 Veritas, Edition Eleven, Edition 8EX, Edition 8 Classic, and Edition M.
ULTRASONE also produces high-quality In-Ear Headphones with a wide range of applications. For the audiophile or professional musician, the Saphire and Limited Edition Ruby Sunrise do not disappoint, with four balanced armature drivers and two electrostatic tweeters, while the mid-level IQ sports a 2-way balanced armature and dynamic driver design. The Tio features a single balanced armature micro driver with an accurate high-end response and a mic for phone calls.
Not just for the professional DJ, ULTRASONE offers the Signature Series, which includes the Pro, DJ, DXP, and Studio for DJ, mastering, and mixing. All models feature some form of the patented S-Logic technology and ULE shielding.
For professional studio work and content creation, the Pro-i Series offers reference-quality sound reproduction. The open-back models are fantastic for mixing, while the closed-back models are great for recording instruments and vocals.
For the budget musician, engineer, or producer, the Performance Series provides a wide spectrum of quality headphones which feature S-Logic technology. There’s even a Sirius Bluetooth Adapter that attaches to any Performance series headphone, allowing for wireless audio streaming from your favorite portable device.
