Ultrasone Inc., distributor for German headphone manufacturer Ultrasone AG, announces the debut of a new special edition headphone — Edition 8. Never before has such attention to detail been given to every aspect of a headphone design; every material and component used in the Edition 8 is second to none.

The Edition 8 is a stunningly elegant, black and silver closed-back headphone that employs Ultrasone’s latest S-Logic™ Plus technology that results in an impartial acoustic feeling that allows the listener even more of a spacious tonal perception. Designed with the audio connoisseur in mind, the interior ear cups are covered in fine Ethiopian sheepskin, which provides the most isolation of any leather, while the outer ear cups are covered in Ruthenium, known for its brilliant metallic sheen and durable properties. These special edition headphones contain MU-Metal shielding (ULE technology) that reduce the amount of radiation directed to the listener by up to 98%, as compared to conventional headphones. Each Edition 8 headphone is individually stamped with its own serial number & comes in a leather bag for storage and transportation.
