It's kind of surrealistic, but there's actually an informal Head-Fi posse actively engaged in a Monty-Pythonesque holy war against Ultrasone. With connivance from moderators, they go about their business like mojo-less Austin Powers clones, a mini army of Mini-Me(s), obsessively spamming every thread they can find with doomsday lunacies against Dr. Evil's secret identical twin half-brother, their true arch-nemesis, Herr Doktor Ultrasone.
Even more importantly, traveling back and forth in either H. G. Wells' or Dr. Evil's time-machine (I have yet to ascertain the facts on this issue), they have the unique ability to pass judgement on headphones that no one else has had a chance to audition yet. Soon they're going to come up with the local Fat-Bastard's own set of freshly-squeezed measurements, proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Signature PRO is not really truly flat above 48 kHz!
In the meantime, I hope this post will be spared the moderators' selectively sharp set of Samurai kitchen knives. And if so, I'll be eagerly looking forward to real impressions of the Signature PRO...
Ultrasone is more full of audiophoolery babble than any "high end" headphone brand. [...] They represent everything reprehensible in the hi-fi audio industry and it behooves those of us with a conscience to let that be known to potential buyers so they can make informed purchases.
[...] Ultrasone has made uniformly bad headphones, albeit ones that may cater to certain people's listening tastes.
Head-fi is like a general religion forum. As a Protestant, you try to persuade them towards your brand of Christianity and away from the others because that's how you find salvation or waldo or whatever. It would have been apt if all the Ultrasone haters spammed the appreciation threads [...]
This is essentially a "fanboy" thread along the same vein as an appreciation thread. "All of the Ultrasone haters..." I don't get the quantitative distinction. All? I am sure some have been left out, are busy burning ED9s in effigy, or are sleeping with their HD650s.
I feel it needs to be repeated -- if you don't like Ultrasone, what are you doing in this thread? [...]
