Ultrasone’s Limited Edition 10: World’s Most Luxurious Headphones?

Zebrano wood inlays, Ethiopian sheepskin ear pads, Titanium drivers, MU-Metal shielding, galvanic Ruthenium plating - look up "lavish" in the dictionary and you'll see this image.


Germany's Ultrasone AG has unveiled what are arguably the world's most off-the-hook headphones. The Edition 10 is a result of years of R&D. Drawing inspiration from natural forms, the Edition 10's ear cups feature high levels of air permeability through the grills, high specific torsion strength, extremely low resonance ...and in a lightweight design. The outer ear cup is finished with a Zebrano wood inlay, coated with eight layers of clear lacquer. The Edition 10's inner ear cup, as well as the head-pad, is made of Ethiopian sheepskin, known for its supplenosity(?), achieving maximum comfort level and sound isolation. There's a punchline hiding here somewhere but it escapes me.

The Titanium-plated 40 mm drivers have been specially tuned for open back application. Each set of drivers has been individually paired with a tolerance of +/- 0.4. The Edition 10s reduce sound pressure on the eardrum by up to 40% and also provide shielding from EMF radiation up to 98%. Attention to detail can also be seen via silver-plated OFC 99.99% pure copper wires in Kevlar casing, achieving increased current flow, improved flexibility and lower overall weight.

Each Edition 10 headphone comes with a hand crafted Zebrano wood headphone stand and is housed in its own wooden box for safe storage and transportation. Only 2,010 Edition 10 headphones will be produced, each one will be embossed with its own serial number.

The Edition 10 headphones have a MSRP of $2,749 and will be available at www.ultrasone.com and high-end audio retailers worldwide. To learn more about Ultrasone's Edition 10, go to www.edition-10.com
