Ultrasone Inc. is pleased to announce its shipping both the Edition 8 and Zino headphones to North American retailers. The Edition 8 is a stunningly elegant, black and silver closed-back headphone that employs Ultrasone's latest S-Logic??? Plus technology that results in an impartial acoustic feeling that allows the listener even more of a spacious tonal perception. Designed with the 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. These special edition headphones contain MU-Metal shielding (ULE technology) that reduce the amount of radiation directed to the listener by up to 98%, as compared to conventional headphones. Each Edition 8 headphone is individually stamped with its own serial number & comes in a leather bag for storage and transportation. The Edition 8 headphones have a MSRP of $1,499 and are available at www.ultrasone.com, leading high-end audio dealers. Ultrasone has given the Zino a sleek, modern look with gunmetal black, brushed aluminum ear cups and silver colored diamond-cut aluminum nameplates. Even though the Zino was designed for mobile applications, it features two powerful 40mm gold plated drivers, which are most commonly found in full-sized studio headphones. The Zino's foldable design allows for easy storage and safe transportation in the included hard carrying case. Despite its small size, the Zino utilizes Ultrasone's patented S-Logic??? technology. Rather than directing the sound to the listener's ear canal, as most conventional headphones do, S-Logic technology employs decentralized drivers that direct audio to the listener's outer ear. This technology not only gives the user a natural surround experience in a stereo headphone by utilizing the ear's anatomy, but it also reduces sound pressure on the eardrums by an astonishing 40%. The Zino headphones have a MSRP of $129 and are available at Ultrasone.com, Amazon.com, Headphonesolutions.com, Soundearphones.com, Harmony Computers, RMC Audio, ALO Audio, Airport Wireless and other leading MI and consumer electronic retailers.
