We're big fans of Ultrasone headphones, and now the company brings its coveted Edition series down to near-earth orbit. The Ultrasone Edition 9 keeps most of the same features of its $3105 Edition 7 brother, but loses that beautiful piano-like dark blue finish in favor of flashy chrome, while keeping its Ethiopian sheep leather earpads and headband.
I can tell you firsthand that the S-Logic technology built into these Edition 9 headphones—common throughout Ultrasone's line—is simply magnificent. It almost sounds like surround sound, and for some weird reason you don't need to crank the volume up as loud to get an astounding audio effect. Too bad these gorgeous limited-edition headphones cost $1500. But if you're serious about your music, it just might be worth it.
