Ultrasone Edition 8 - Page 2

post #16 of 1943
Inquiring minds are inquiring again: does this mean the Ed 9 price drops?

Awesome: two flatirons connected to a headband, ouch.

OK, maybe I'm nuts, but these look pretty sweet.

Personally, I would only be concerned with how they sound. If they are winners, and other people think they look ugly, then it's less chance they will be stolen.

Almost definitely a bass reflex design, which is really not propietary at all, even in headphones.

I can't decide whether I love or hate how they look. I think I like them but would be embarassed to be seen wearing them.

Also, are we sure that the estimated price is right? $1500 seems absurd to drop on a portable. They better be unbelievable.

Too true!
At least they're not as hideous as the 750's and the 550 BLEMs.
The iMac blue would make me feel like Raver Smurf!

Not a problem for me, considering I would only wear these at home, and my GF thinks my cans look dorky no matter what. Doesn't stop her from taking my hand me downs though.

Well I just noticed from here that ultrasones are horribly overpriced in japan and the suggested price in japan of the edition 9 is of 241500 yen which should be around 2490 $ so there is a chance that edition 8 will be cheaper than the suggested price of 150000 yen in japan too.

I'm still wondering why Edition 9 are much cheaper in the usa than in their own production country though.

The Edition 7 is more expensive than the Edition 9. So I think the Edition 8 price should be between this two.

Only Edition 7 is limited edition but not the Edition 8 or 9.

At a price of $150K Yen, I was hoping for a limited model but it's really expensive for a portable headphone.

By the way, the headphone jack is it for portable audio player ?
And is it manufacture in Germany ?

They are supposed to have a gold plated mini jack and be made in Germany.

Reasoning being 7 < 8 < 9 => P(7) > P(8) > P(9) ?
Well then, because I am taller than 99% of the population, all their women should belong to me =).

No, seriously...

That's "all your woman are belong to me" (remember, "all your base are belong to us"?)
