With the advent of the Ultrasone Ed. 10 flagship, it seemed a new top phone was on the horizon. Then there was the apparent mishap with pads that were constructed of the wrong material, which had a deleterious impact on the sound with new pads that appear to have gone a long ways in alleviating the strange frequency response. There appears to be a growing consensus that with the new pads, or Ed. 10's shipped with the correct pads, are phones worth listening to.
So, as time goes by, where do the Ultrasone Ed. 10 fit in? Are they among the very best of known headphones?
Images from Ultrasone with the contrast bumped a little to give them more snap.
