High-end headphones are targeted towards those folks who give top priority to quality, and not price. The latest entrants in the high-end headphones market are the Ultrasone ‘s Edition 10 headphones. With Zebrano wood ear cup inlays, Ethiopian sheepskin leather ear cup pads, Titanium plated drivers, Kevlar coated cables and a limited number of 2010 units available, Ultrasone’s Edition 10 represent the company’s most lavishly appointed and highly coveted specialty headphones ever created.
Drawing inspiration from natural forms, the Edition 10’s ear cups feature high levels of air permeability through the grills, high specific torsion strength and extremely low resonance, all in a lightweight design. The hand-made Edition 10 also incorporates silver-plated OFC 99.99% pure copper wires and utilizes Kevlar as the casing, which helps the headphones achieve increased current flow, improved flexibility and reduced weight.
Each one of the Ultrasone’s Edition 10 headphones that leave the warehouse will have a serial number embossed on the set, so you’ll know that you’re one of the special number that managed to get your hands on them. Other features include S-Logic technology, MU Metal Bufferboard, and an impedance of 32 Ohm.
