Somehow my camera missed the focus on the Juliet but I noticed that these (and the blurred Romeo behind her) are also unattached.

Who is that girl, is she the same one who did the preview video for the Sig DJ and the IEMs? SOOOO beautiful and speaks perfect English like a boss <3

Detachable cables? Definitely. iPhone controls? Definitely not, the cable should be as clean as possible. Edition 8 certainly warrants detachable cables, not only for easier replacement in the event the cable gets damaged but for aftermarket cable usage as well.

Yeah, that is the only thing i didn't like about the ED8-where the cable was connected.  With some jackets when i walk i can hear the clicking of the cable at it's connection.blink.gif  Would have rather had the other connection but then i would have had to wait for two years soooo, guess it's okay.

Is there anyone who modded it with a detachable cable yet? I wonder if it's hard to do it.

 

I have a friend of mine who sent his palladium to Ultrasone cause the cable broke and he asked them to replace it with a detachable cable, just like Romeo & Juliet. I am waiting his answer about it, if Ultrasone accepted the request or not.

Yeah, I know. The thing is, there was no pictures showing them with the detachable cable, until now.

I told her that she's popular with you guys here on Head-Fi ;-).

Sorry, haven't been following this thread too long, but I'm thinking about jumping in the Edition 8 train. Any good deals on them new or used?  Also, any word when these detachable cable versions will pop up?

post #1690 of 1944

There is one up for sale on the used forum for $750.  I almost made him an offer to have a second one but I am a little stretched so in the end didn't.  Went up a coupla hours ago, look for it.

 

Edit-See below for link.

Thanks! Saw that, but I was hoping for a slightly lower price on the older version, since I've been seeing it go for a little less now.

I sent an email to Ultrasone about a week ago, asking about Romeo and Julia versions. They told me that on Oct. 31st they would update their website. And there it is! Romeo and Julia official website.

The weird thing is that they are still using pictures of Romeo and Julia prototype versions, the ones with fixed cable. There's only one slightly higher resolution picture of both with detachable cables.

These are pictures from Romeo and Julia :

Romeo :

The Edition 8 Romeo headphones are hand-made in Germany and represent a new, and extremely elegant, addition to the Edition range. Every single pair is manufactured with care and attributed a series number, making every Edition 8 Romeo one-of-a-kind.

With a headpad made of black-coated aluminium, the Edition 8 Romeo is truly unmistakable. The matching black-covered ear cups are designed to harmonise beautifully with the striking appearance of this refined pair of headphones. The ear cups are coated with lustrous brushed palladium. This high-quality coating ensures durability and demonstrates a superior level of hand craftsmanship.

The Edition 8 Romeo’s black ear pads are made from the exclusive leather of the Ethiopian long-haired sheep. This is the most precious leather available and provides the finest isolation of any leather.

The metal headband of the Edition 8 series typifies latest scientific knowledge in headband design and development. This unique headband design made by Ultrasone is highly developed and technical precision work. The Edition 8 Romeo headband is also covered with the very soft genuine black Ethiopian sheepskin leather. Edition 8 Romeo comes with a luxury black bag for storge and transportation.

Der Kopfbügel der Edition 8 Kopfhörer ist eine Neuentwicklung und besteht aus Metall. Für die Polsterung des Edition 8 Romeo Bügels wurde ebenfalls das hochwertige schwarze Schafsleder verwendet. Aufbewahren und transportieren können Sie den Edition 8 Romeo in einem luxuriösen schwarzen Beutel.

In addition to a titanium plated tri-bass-tube driver, these headphones follow Ultrasone´s S-Logic Plus technology which results in a most neutral sound impression with more vivid perception of voices and instruments. Of course, the Edition 8 Romeo also contains MU-Metal shielding (ULE technology) that reduces magnetic field emissions by up to 98% compared to conventional headphones.

The detachable cable is a new, flexible component for the Edition 8 Romeo and is equipped with a microphone and remote control for mobile devices and smartphones. A specially developed Android app for remote control programming can be downloaded

Julia :

The Edition 8 Julia is handmade in Germany, and is the first pair of trend-colour headphones in the Edition range. Every single pair is manufactured with great care and given its own series number making every Edition 8 Julia one-of-a-kind.

The Edition 8 Julia is impressive, with elegant fuchsia coloured leather earpads and a fuchsia coloured headband pad. The elegantly flowing engraving on the ruthenium-coated ear cups delights the senses. The mother-of-pearl bands accentuate the charm of these delightful headphones. No band is the same as another, and each is a hand-worked individual creation. The stylish ruthenium coating does not just make the headphones extremely hard-wearing, it also adds the wow-factor with a brilliant, metallic shine.

The earpads for the Edition 8 Julia headphones are made from fuchsia-coloured leather from the Ethiopian long-haired sheep. This is the most precious leather available and provides the finest isolation of any leather.

The metal headband of the Edition 8 series typifies latest scientific knowledge in headband design and development. This unique headband design made by Ultrasone is highly developed and technical precision work. The Edition 8 Julia headband is also covered with the very soft genuine Ethiopian sheepskin leather.

Edition 8 Julia comes with a fancy white bag for storge and transportation.

In addition to a titanium plated tri-bass-tube driver, these headphones follow Ultrasone´s S-Logic Plus technology which results in a most neutral sound impression with more vivid perception of voices and instruments. Of course, the Edition 8 Julia also contains MU-Metal shielding (ULE technology) that reduces magnetic field emissions by up to 98% compared to conventional headphones.

The detachable cable is a new, flexible component for the Edition 8 Julia. This has a microphone and remote control for mobile devices and smartphones. You can download a specially developed Android app for remote control programming free-of-charge.
