Audio46's Opinion

The Edition 8 EX by Ultrasone features prominent lows with a warmer sound profile and a mid-bass bump that adds a bit of richness to the low-end. The midrange offers good detail retrieval, with a smooth yet highly transparent sound. There's also a lift in the upper midrange that adds energy to vocals and guitars. The treble is well-placed in the mix, with some nice liveliness to balance out the low-end warmth. The soundstage is particularly impressive; the imaging is precise, and the sense of expansiveness is unusual for a closed-back mode. Add to that a luxurious and aesthetically striking build, and the Edition 8 EX becomes a compelling choice, especially for audiophiles in need of a closed-back option for commuting.

Ultrasone Edition EX Audiophile Headphones

A WORK OF ART

As a premium product, the Ultrasone Edition EX Audiophile Headphones represents the current technical stage of development of ULTRASONE’S headphones. The Edition 8 EX stands for an acoustic, unique sound experience. The outstanding sound performance of this magnificent piece is reflected in its elegant build quality and unique design. The Edition 8 EX combines seeing, touching and wearing to captivate all the senses and create a luxurious work of art.

FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION

The Edition 8 EX design uses the design principle “form follows function” as an elegant embodiment of the functionality of high-end headphones, from excellent wear comfort to the visual reflection of superior acoustic quality through independent design.

STATE OF THE ART

At ULTRASONE, innovation has driven product development from the very beginning. Each set of Edition 8 EX headphones embodies the newest patented findings for spatial sound production: the S-LOGIC surround sound technology has been used exclusively by ULTRASONE for many years and, with the addition of further exclusive, sound-shaping ULTRASONE expertise, can be found again in the Edition 8 EX as S-LOGIC® EX.

PROFILE

The elegant design, as well as the high quality feel of the Ultrasone Edition EX Audiophile Headphones is thanks to the exquisitely processed material.

The ear cups are high gloss, chrome plated and coated with wear-resistant PVD (physical deposition of a thin, hard coating in the vapour phase). The elegantly designed connection mounts on the ear cups bear polished ceramic inlays engraved with the ULTRASONE logo. The ear cushions are secured to the ear cups by magnetic force and can be reliably and easily detached. The ear cushions are made of soft, dark grey, incredibly elegant leather from the Ethiopian long-haired sheep. The same leather also covers the cushioning on the headband, which is crafted from solid aluminium.

THE S-LOGIC® EX SOUNDSCAPE

Our ear is an extraordinarily versatile organ that not only interprets the tones and dynamics of sounds, but also determines

the direction and distance and therefore the three-dimensionality of the sound thanks to the structure of the ear muscle. Three-dimensional sound perception falls by the wayside with conventional headphones, as the sound runs directly into the ear canal.

S-LOGIC uses specially decentralised sound transducers to involve the ear muscle in sound perception and guarantee three-dimensional listening with the headphones.

The Edition 8 EX’s S-LOGIC® EX technology represents the latest stage of development in ULTRASONE’S pioneering S-LOGIC® technology. The EX version from S-LOGIC® projects the sound produced by the decentralised sound transducer by means of an elaborate funnel structure and targets this towards the unique structure of the ear muscle that is responsible for spatial sound. The result is the perception of a perfect, three-dimensional sound that transports the listener directly to the concert hall, jazz club or arena.
