Ultrasone announces high-end and lightweight Edition M Headphones
When it comes to high-end hardware, it helps to have a great name behind great products, like Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, or in this case, Ultrasone. With German engineering, Ultrasone artfully crafted their newest addition to their…well, Edition family. Surely, the Ultrasone Edition M headphones are truly worth marveling with just its looks alone with its three-tone design.
Speaking of that German engineering, these headphones weigh only 146 grams. According to Ultrasone, they claim that they are the “highest-quality pair of headphones in its class”. By the looks of it, the build quality is clearly noteworthy with a steel headband along with precious metals and leather around the ear cushions. It’s truly amazing that headphones of this caliber are handcrafted, especially on a commercial level. What you’ll also discover is the detachable cable that can be…well, detached from either side. This cable also has an in-line remote for media control, as well as a gold-plated 3.5 mm jack.
The headphones also come with S-Logic®Plus technology, which basically enables the headphones to have a more natural surround sound and this would allow “safer” listening because S-Logic®Plus technology reduces the sound pressure levels by 40%. Additionally, Ultrasone included ULE technology, which just shields off electromagnetic fields that may be emitted by the headphones themselves. Personally, I’m not sure if there’s any real comparative advantage when shielding off non-ionizing radiation, but it doesn’t hurt to have a few extra bells and whistles.
As far as availability goes, they don’t seem to be available for purchase quite yet, but seeing that they are handcrafted with others in its family, they’ll run you a few thousand dollars, seeing that’s where the rest of the Edition series lies. A bit steep? Of course, but this definitely screams “Premium” and that’s what makes it a really cool pair of headphones.
