(I have also created a separate thread for this - if needed, pls remove that one or this reply, txs)
I am in the market for these (as far as I can judge) brilliant headphones, and have found them at Amazon
for a reasonable price (unfortunately not the Lightning Deal).
But the one offered there, seems to be (or are) the old versions of this product.
From Ultrasone I got confirmed:
- Old Version: til May 2010 – 2 pcs. of 3 m cables (straight / coiled) and silver and black ear pads, adapter.
- Current Version: from June 2010 on – 1 pcs. of 1,5 m straight cable + 3 m coiled cable – 2 pairs of black ear pads, no adapter, with soft lack painting.
Also, when comparing more specs, there are some (important?) differences:
Frequency range: 8-35.000 Hz
Sound pressure level: 94 dB
Frequency range: 6-42.000Hz
Sound pressure level: 96 dB
Also I am not sure if both offer S-Logic Natural Surround Sound Plus, or if the old model "only" offers S-Logic PLUS technology.
As far as I can judge, all these differences can make a significant difference between the two versions.
Question: Are all the "rave reviews" given at this forum based upon the old or new version?
Question: Has anybody tried both versions, and if so, were there differences? (taken burn-in into account)
Question: Is the "Kees Mod" applied on the old or new version?
* Any other useful comment is much appreciated *
P.S. I have tried the new model already and liked their sound (although I don't know the burn-in time of these).
Txs in advance
