The Bavarian headphone specialists have retained the excellent sound qualities of the closed reference model: the newly developed S-Logic® EX Technology ensures a unique spatial quality, produced by two titanium-coated 40mm sound transducers. However, with masculine lines and ruthenium-coated ear cups, the design is completely different to that of the Edition 5. Just like the limited editions, each individual set of Edition 5 unlimited headphones is handcrafted with meticulous precision in the factory in Bavaria.
555 – that’s how many sets of Edition 5 headphones were crafted for the first, limited version. The reference model found delighted customers all over the world. An astounding 90 per cent of these
handcrafted masterpieces were sold within two weeks. Renowned trade journals were unanimous in their praise of the “best closed headphones that money can buy”. With its unique structure, the bog oak used for the ear cups makes each model unique, and the uniquely soft Ethiopian long-haired sheep leather invites the listener to hours and hours of musical enjoyment. A milestone in the history of Ultrasone AG.
The Edition 5 unlimited is a brand-new version of the reference model. Visually, this new variant clearly differs from its predecessor: the ear cups, coated with ruthenium, give the new model a timeless and yet masculine finish. The discreet laser engravings on the sides emphasise the high standards that Ultrasone set for the manufacture of their headphones. The Edition’s tried-and-tested headband pad, which combines design and comfort in its own unique way, also adorns the Edition 5 unlimited. Although the new variant is not limited to a specific quantity, each set of
headphones still bears an individual serial number to clearly signify how many of this headphone model have already passed through the trained hands of the employees at the manufacturing facility.
Audiophile music listeners from all over the globe rave about the sound produced by the Edition 5. A broad stereo platform and vivid tonal depth gradation turn both classical and modern music into a very special experience. Qualities that have been retained in the Edition 5 unlimited. When considering components, the Ultrasone developers took inspiration from the reference model and likewise used titaniumcoated 40mm sound transducers. Although the Edition 5 unlimited headphones are dynamic, with a closed-back construction, the treble range is uniquely smooth and
transparent. However, the closed design is equally good for the lower frequencies: the bass range comes across with absolute precision. In combination with the transparent mid range, the music is therefore reproduced exactly as the artist intended.
Ultrasone has implemented S-Logic EX®, a revolutionary development of the patented S-Logic technology, into the Edition 5 and the new Edition 5 unlimited. This innovation is based on a peripherally positioned, funnel-shaped arrangement for the sound transducer, oriented downwards to the front, which results in a much more spatial effect. The listening experience is practically indistinguishable from that of professional studio monitors and, unlike with speakers, is not dependent upon room acoustics. The main purpose of S-Logic EX® technology is to further optimise the already very impressive S-Logic effect. Intensive research and many years of testing
have resulted in this special arrangement of the sound transducers.
The Ultrasone Edition 5 unlimited combines the sound of a concert hall with unique comfort, allowing for hours of musical enjoyment for audiophiles. The closed ear cup concept, combined with excellent cushioning and light weight re-defines the term ‘wear comfort’. Ethiopian long-haired sheep leather was also chosen for this version, which ensures particularly pleasant contact with the skin. This is because it has a unique feel, and at the same time is so hard-wearing that even after years of use it shows no signs of aging.
