Ultrasone Edition 8 "Limited Edition" - Page 3

post #31 of 450

I think the first production run of the ruthenium was 1000 units but neither it nor the palladium version is supposed to be limited edition

At first I bought Ruthenium ED8 because that was the only one in market. Then comes palladium to the market. I thought ruthenium was too shiny and a fingerprint magnet. Therefore bought the Palladium edition (So much better looking IMO. Very elegant and not too shiny). Palladium is still a fingerprint magnet, but much less than compared to the rutenium edition. The limited edition looks very similar to the ruthenium edition (based on pictures), but looks to brownish. I agree with subtle that its just retarded for a firm to sell same headphone in 3 styles with 3 extreme prices. A point to be noted is I got Rutenium edition after it was in market for about 5 months and my SN was 161, and then got palladium 2 days after it releases and that was 187. I really don't know if they are even able to sell over 500 units of each (ruthenium or palladium) and now comes up with Limited edition.

 

PS: My Palladium was a defective unit, and stop working after 2 days. Ultrasone in California has made me wait for 2 months for the parts to come in from germany so they can fix it. They will receive the parrts this week and then I can get it fixed. Kinda of ridiculous in my opinion for a $1700 headphone to be defective.  Starting to lose patience on Ultrasone........ Just my opinion and throwing it out there.

If the asking price is in fact $2,300, then I will pass.  I'd like the wood accents.  But not $2,300 badly. (I don't think...)

Am i the only one who finds the brown and glossy metal color mixture disgusting? I greatly prefer the original one.

I don´t like the headband and earpads. Poo coloured why is that cool?

They're gorgeous, just like the rest of the ED8s. To be honest, I'm absolutely shocked we haven't seen pictures of celebrities walking around in ED8s.

 

Now who wants to lend me the money?

I prefer Palladium edition. The wood doesn't look too apealing in limited edition. 

 

 

Looks like hard case will be included for the limited editon (and a color manual). Please note it in the following picture:

 Note ruthenium edition is in in the "Madras" leather case....... Look at the hard case behind the hand

I just noticed limited edition forum thread yesterday, so I honestly do not konw anything about it other than just what I see in the pictures. I also don't see any information on http://www.edition-headphones.com/ (ultrasone edition 8 official website). I guess Ultrasone will release more information soon....
