Ultrasone Releases $1500 Headphones – Recession, What Recession??
Ultrasone is spitting in the face of the bleak economy. The German concern has announced a new special edition headphone, dubbed the Edition 8. Ultrasone claims: “Never before has such attention to detail been given to every aspect of a headphone design; every material and component used in the Edition 8 is second to none.” For $1500, let’s hope so…

money-is-no-object audio connoisseur in mind, the interior ear cups are covered in fine Ethiopian sheepskin, which provides the most isolation of any leather, while the outer ear cups are covered in Ruthenium, known for its brilliant metallic sheen and durable properties.
