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.

Editor's recommendations: Ultrasone

A small consolation: if you do not have a thousand euros to hand for these first-class headphones, there are models from other brands, and even from Ultrasone itself, which provide similar sound quality for a much lower price. Nevertheless, the Edition Eleven absolutely has a place as a luxurious must-have. In terms of both sound quality and appearance, these hand-made headphones from Bavaria offer excellence that is totally worth the price.

The Edition 15 Veritas has a clear focus – pure musical enjoyment at the highest level. In addition to the actual sound reproduction, this only requires a cable connection for high resolutions and a high level of wearing comfort.

The Ultrasone Saphire, a pair of in-ears handcrafted in Germany, impress with their combination of six drivers that work in four ways, and a mix of balanced armature and electrostatic drivers. The package of accessories is also impressive, as it includes a small, elaborately equipped transport case and an additional symmetrical exchangeable cable. The design and workmanship of these headphones are outstanding. The devices themselves have a simple, elegant appearance and are pleasantly uncomplicated in both handling and fit. In terms of sound, the Saphire surprised us with a sound that is attenuated in the trebles but still conveys a sense of breadth, strong mids that reproduce sound very vividly, and a rich low range that produces deep bass confidently. There is no doubt that Ultrasone has succeeded in creating a unique signature with these headphones!
