Ultrasone Edition 5 Limited
10 years after the first presentation of the Ultrasone Edition series launched in 2003 with the Edition 7 model, the company celebrates its tenth anniversary of its top series. The Anniversary model is Edition 5 in a limited to 555 series. Closed-case headphones are known for their many advantages. Thanks to the use of key technologies for Ultrasone, such as the new S-Logic EX release and the use of the highest quality materials, the Edition 5 takes us to a whole new level.
The S-Logic EX debuting in this model is a revolutionary technique developed on the basis of the previously patented S-Logic. Its operation consists in modeling a tunnel-shaped membrane directed downwards. We get a more spatial sound image, locating apparent sources in front of the listener, not in his head. The music reception practically does not differ from the one in the recording studio, using large studio monitors, but unlike the speakers it is not dependent on the room acoustics.
The main goal of S-Logic EX is to further optimize the spatial effects achieved in S-Logic. Intensive research and many years of testing have resulted in the development of a titanium membrane in the shape of a downwardly directed tunnel. The diaphragms have been specially developed for acoustic conditions of this particular model and are not an adaptation of solutions from other headphones.
The challenge was also to maintain a slim and elegant appearance, despite being located quite far from the ear, having an unusual shape of the membrane. In Edition 5 Ultrasone achieved what it seemed impossible for other headphone companies.
The Edition 5 headset shells are handmade from centuries-old oak, unrivaled in terms of texture, color and mechanical properties.
Wooden shells are finished with a laser cut aluminum insert with the Ultrasone logo, thanks to which they look absolutely odorous. The whole is covered with seven layers of varnish, further improving the appearance of headphones. The headband is made of black anodized aluminum, complementing their unique design. Edition 5 is already a unique collector's exhibit. The ear cushions and headband were made using the best skin from long-haired Ethiopian sheep. This leather combines softness with excellent insulating properties, while providing comfort of listening and incredible sound quality. Edition 5 is of course equipped with MU-Metal shielding technology, which reduces the radiation coming from the coils. Customer care is also evident in the selection of accessories. Flexible, detachable cables are made of oxygen-free copper with a purity of 99.999%. The cables are two - 4 meters long and the other one is 1.8 meters long, both equipped with Neutrik plugs.
The complement is a special packaging for storing headphones and a stand made of cast steel. Last but not least: a special protective cover against dust when Edition 5 is placed on the stand.
