Made in Bavaria – Ultrasone Headphone Manufacturer from Lake Starnberg, Germany

As one of the leading developers and manufacturers of headphones, Ultrasone AG has made a name for itself among audiophile listeners all over the world since its founding in 1991. Ultrasonic headphones can be found in the pro-audio sector among hip DJs and renowned recording studios as well as among hi-fi enthusiasts in over 50 countries. The exclusive “Manufaktur” models, which are handcrafted in Germany, also enjoy an excellent reputation. For some years now, MP3 player and smartphone owners have also been able to enjoy the sound of portable headphones in Ultrasone-quality.

The company from Lake Starnberg holds more than 60 patents; a special feature of the Ultrasone-models is the patented S Logic Technology, which provides a spatial and natural sound via a decentralized arrangement of the transducers and at the same time preserves the hearing. The ULE shielding developed in 1997 is another milestone in Ultrasonics history, which reduces the electromagnetic radiation exposure of the head by up to 98 percent when using headphones.
