Constant development leads to the fact that Ultrasone produces exceptionally high-quality headphones equipped with the latest technologies, for which the company has repeatedly been awarded major awards, including Reddot, Plus-X, Exportpreis and many others.


Open monitor headphones Ultrasone Edition 10 Limited are released in a limited edition of 2010 copies. Each piece has its own unique serial number and harmoniously combines advanced technology, stylish, elegant design and luxurious finishes. The headphones are assembled by hand using the highest quality materials.

Stereo phones use S-Logic Natural Surround Sound technology in the Plus version, according to which the drivers are slightly offset relative to the axis of the ear canal. The waves emitted by such speakers are first reflected from the outer part of the ear and only then enter the inner auditory canal. Thanks to this technology, the natural spatial perception of sound is improved and its accuracy increases. In the S-Logic Plus version, the cups received more serious damping and went through a finer-tuning process, which had a positive effect on the sound. The emitters used are 40 mm drivers, the membrane of which has a titanium coating that increases rigidity. Neodymium magnets (NdFeB) are used. ULE technology is used, which provides protection against electromagnetic radiation. To achieve this, the Ultrasone Edition 10 Limited headphones have a plate made of a special mu-metal alloy.


The neat lattice cups are coated with ruthenium (a platinum group metal), polished to a mirror finish and have figured zebrawood inserts. The same wood is used to produce the complete stand, the design of which perfectly matches the geometric shape of the inserts. The thick ear pads and lightweight metal headband are lined with smooth Ethiopian sheep leather for a high level of comfort. Adjustment to the required size is carried out in the standard way using sliders.

The model is equipped with a 3 m long double-sided permanent cable, which is reinforced with aramid fiber and uses silver-plated OFC copper conductors. The cable transmits signals accurately and is flexible, wear-resistant and lightweight. There is a luxurious wooden case for storage.


The Ultrasone Edition 10 Limited headphones feature a wide frequency range from 5 Hz to 45 kHz and an impedance of 32 ohms, making them suitable for use with portable devices. The sound of stereo phones can be described as detailed, open, natural, with well-developed deep bass and spatial stage.
