Every time I upgrade my headphones, I rediscover parts of my large music collection. Since I can’t get any big speakers because of where I live, I’ve resigned myself to exploring the realm of audiophile headphones. From Sennheiser to Grado, there are a handful of names in that area, including Germany’s Ultrasone. Ultrasone is a well-known brand in the high-end headphone market, and they’ve just released a new line called Signature PRO.
The Signature PRO headphones are handcrafted in Germany, with soft-touch leather that’s supposed to be pleasant to keep on your head for hours. They’ve got 40mm titanium-plated sound transducers with a frequency range of 8Hz to 42kHz, an impedance of 32 Ohm, sound pressure levels of 98dB and they come with two connectors.
If you think that $1,299(USD) is a lot to spend on a pair of headphones, check out price on the ultra-fancy Ultrasone Edition 10, which will set you back a cool $2,749.
