Ultrasone’s artisan roots
The company has been crafting high-end headphones for more than 25 years for studio, professional, semi-pro and consumer markets. Each of their premium products is engineered with the same German precision. And most of their headsets, including the Signature series, are manufactured, assembled and tested by hand at the company’s estate in the Bavarian Alps.
The S-Logic system…
There’s a strong familial resemblance among all Ultrasone headsets, from the ultraportable Go to the enveloping Edition and Signature series. Most headphone makers center their drivers in the cup and shoot the sound directly into the ear, bypassing natural resonances and anatomical acoustics. But Ultrasone’s patented S-Logic technology places its drivers asymmetrically down and forward from the ear canal. That means the horn section that was blaring off the back of your skull shifts to a stage in front for a more natural, concert-like experience with the depth of a real listening environment.
…plus the Plus
S-Logic Plus refines the original asymmetrical system, fine-tuning the damping and acoustic reinforcement so the driver, mounting board and spatial placement all work together toward the most natural sound and staging. What it all means is less listener fatigue over long listening sessions, with greater depth and more natural imaging.
For those who wear headsets for hours on end, the Signature Pro incorporates Ultrasone’s patented ULE technology, which uses MU metal construction to shield the user from any potential adverse effects from long-term exposure to low-level electromagnetic radiation. Combined with S-Logic’s side benefit of higher perceived loudness at lower actual sound pressure levels, that means you can feel absolutely confident and secure enjoying the Signature Pros for longer listening periods.
Built for comfort…
The lightweight, 11-ounce Signature Pro set is outfitted with around-the-ear cushioning that seals the sound from the outside while remaining soft, breathable and comfortable on the head for long listening sessions. Dark-grey ear and headband pads are hand-stitched from the leather of Ethiopian sheep, chosen for its long-lasting properties and allowing a snug, satisfying fit with outstanding insulation properties. The nameplates are structured of tough, polished safety glass. And the folding hinges, carrying case and switchable cables for 3.5 mm and ¼-inch phone jacks offer the utmost in flexibility and portability.
…and for speed
Let’s not forget the source of the Ultrasone Signature sound. The 40mm, titanium-coated mylar drivers are designed to optimize transient response – the speed at which the driver reacts to the signal – and stretch the frequency range from 8 Hz to 40 kHz, well beyond the limits of human hearing. That means you get every nuance of the recorded sound, for the most critical applications. Add it all up, and you get accurate audio, natural soundstage, and long-wearing comfort and durability in every Signature Pro.
You want to feed headphones of this quality the finest source material, designed specifically for personal listening. Consider a dedicated headphone amp/DAC such as the Marantz HD-DAC1 or McIntosh MHA150.
