Ultrasone AG, the German manufacturer of headphone products, recently unveiled its edition7 headphone in the United States on TechTV’s Fresh Gear (www.techtv.com). The program first aired on Tuesday, February 10, 2004.
Ultrasone AG limited the production on the edition7 unit—only 999 were made—and each mic costs $3,000. Built with titanium drivers and Uultrasone’s S-Logic™ and PROline (ultralow-emission) technology, the edition7 represents the latest in high-end technology.
Ultrasone’s patented S-Logic technology creates natural surround sound without the use of additional electronic devices. The technology uses decentralized transducer positioning to reflect sound off of the listener’s outer ear, creating a natural 3-D sensation without the use of processing. S-Logic produces a stereophonic surround sound field that is perceived to be broad, detached and located in front of the listener. Ultrasone addresses the physiology of the ear rather than using electronics to generate a stereophonic sound field. The headphones represent a safer listening experience by generating a 40-percent lower sensitivity for the same perceived loudness and shielding up to 98 percent of EMF radiation through the use of patented PROline (ultralow-emission) technology.
