Wow!


Yeah, the first track was easily the most impressive.

 

The occasional clipping is a bit of a shame, but overall, I think it's a great listen.

Wow, you guys weren't lying. That first track is REALLY an out of head experience. I was actually spinning around trying to catch where it was coming from haha. Good stuff.

 

Now to finish the rest of the CD.

 

Edit: 

 

Both ocean/beach tracks were phenomenal as well. Especially the first one; gave me goosebumps. I could really listen to that all day.

 

Overall, a great CD (there was some distortion on 3-4 of the tracks) and an even better listen. It's experiences like these that remind me why I'm here. 

 

Anyone have anything else like this?

 

What a fantastic 3 year bump!

A torrent of the CD can be found here: http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/6768973/Ultrasone_Reference_CD_FLAC

 

The CD is in FLAC and you need a client such as utorrent http://www.utorrent.com to download it. There is no tagging of the tracks, they're just listed "track 01, track 02" and so on, but a list of the tracks can be found on page 4 of this thread.

 

Not sure about the legality of torrents, hope this doesn't warrant a ban or anything...just trying to help.

All this is just the ULTRASONE CD, which comes with all their headphones?

If so, then I have the original copy of it. Played a bit of it when I received my headphones, it surely sounded wonderful but I was not really into those sounds and decided to just listen to my own music instead. The fact that I decided to skip all this 'random' music, when all you 'pros' and 'enthusiasts' appreciate it so much, just shows how much of a noob I am. smily_headphones1.gif

Is there any sort of guide to follow as to what to listen for in each track of the Ultrasone CD? And is the CD only meant for auditioning  headphones?
