The Ultrasone Edition 5 are truly premium closed-back headphones, and the result of Ultrasone's decades of specialisation and class-leading sound, materials and design. There are few headphones at the price which can come close to the Edition 5, both in terms of their premium design and finish, and also in sound quality.
The Edition 5 offer an immensely neutral and natural sound, free from colouration and exaggeration. The result is a truly lifelike soundstage and tone, much more akin to a live performance than playback. The Ultrasone Edition 5 adopt the revolutionary S-Logic EX technology, which is what gives them their stellar sonic performance.
S-Logic EX technology is a revolutionary refinement of the S-Logic technology used by Ultrasone, and is adopted for the first time in the anniversary Edition 5 headphones. The innovation is based on a funnel-shaped arrangement for the sound transducer, which is oriented downards to the front, resulting in a much greater spatial forward positioning effect.
Listening to headphones using S-Logic EX is virtually indistinguishable from studio monitors and unlike speakers, does not rely on the acoustics of the room. S-Logic EX was designed to optimise and further improve on the already stellar S-Logic effect, and years of testing and research have resulted in the funnel-shaped arrangement for the titanium-coated sound transducers, aimed downards to the front.
Keeping in line with many of Ultrasone's designs, the Edition 5 are a truly exquisite, unique and elegant product. The earcup is handmade from moor oak, which is hundreds of years old and is unrivalled in grain and colour. The finishing of the earcups with the wafer-thin, laser-etched aluminium logo makes each Edition 5 totally unique.
The earcups are protected by 7 layers of varnish, further enhancing the natural beauty of the materials. With its cool sophisticated look, the black anodised aluminium headband emphasises the elegance of the oak earcups, turning every Edition 5 into an extraordinary collector’s item.
For the earpads and the headband pad Ultrasone employs its tried and tested Ethiopian long-haired sheep leather. This leather combines silky softness with exceptional insulating properties, providing both outstanding wear comfort and perfect sound quality. The Edition 5 series is of course also equipped with MU-metal shielding to reduce radiation.
Particular care has also been taken with the accessories. The flexible 99.999% OFC cables are detachable. One 4m cable and one 1.8m cable are included, both fitted with Neutrik connectors. Please note this is the "Unlimited" edition, NOT the "Limited" edition which was considerably more expensive when released.
