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, closed-back ‘phones is half of the Edition 7, down to $1,500 (not that that makes them any more affordable to me). The ear cushions and headband pad are made from Ethiopian sheep leather (which I’m told is really really good). They feature premium 40mm titanium-mylar drivers capable of producing a frequency range of 8Hz to 35,000Hz and uses the company’s S-Logic technology for reducing sound pressure on your eardrum and creating a more natural sound experience.
