    Ultrasone Edition 10: Zebrano Wood Ear Cups For The Oligarch Audiophile

    Ah, Zebrano wood. I recall my days in Shangri-La laying on a chaise of that selfsame wood, its resonant properties returning me to health after fighting velociraptors in the brush. Now I can enjoy the same benefits of the Zerbrano wood with none of the downward slashing with razor-sharp claws. These earphones – priced at $2,749- are Ultrasone’s latest foray into the… Read More

    Review: Ultrasone 15G headphones

    We’ve seen Ultrasone gear before: the Edition 9 mega-headphones and the rather more affordable HFI-580s, both very good pairs of cans. If you’re looking to spend under a bill, though, there’s really only one option from the German super-lux audio guys: the 15G. They’ve been around for quite a while, but as long as we’ve got this headphone roundup going on, we… Read More

    Review: Ultrasone HFI-580 headphones

    You may have seen the review of Ultrasone’s mega-high-end Series 9 headphones the other day. Well, the company doesn’t just make $1600 cans; these HFI-580s represent the more affordable end of their product spectrum, and although they cost about 90% less, I’m thinking they probably sound 90% as good.

    Review: Ultrasone Edition9 headphones

    I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not an audiophile. I enjoy music and I enjoy good sound but I have yet to be bitten by the high end audio bug. I understand that good audio gear is expensive but have also yet to feel that headphones are worth $1,700. And yet, why am I so fascinated with the Ultrasone Edition9 headphones, a pair of closed-back cans with natural surround sound and… Read More

    New Ultrasone HFI-15Gs look like solid open headphones


    I’ve got a pair of Ultrasone HFI-580 cans at home, the review for which will be appearing soon, and I can tell you that they do sound great. They really seal around your ear, though, which some people like and some don’t. These much lighter (and cheaper at $109) HFI-15Gs are open-back, meaning sound and air pass through the headphones, although I wouldn’t say it… Read More

  • Ultrasone's $1,500 Edition 9 Headphones


    As a complete headphone junky, Ultrasone’s Edition 7 limited edition headphones were sort of the Holy Grail of headphones to me. I only saw them in person once and never got to hear them. Just 999 sets were made and they sold for $3,000. Well, it’s time for the drool-fest to begin again as the German manufacturer launches the new Edition 9. The price on the black chrome… Read More
