I had a chance to spend good time with them at the e-earphones headphone festival back in May. Overall, super light, comfy, and that open sound that Ultrasone CAN do very well, but sometimes miss on. The price is also right. I wrote a little more of my experience at ohm-image's e-earphones festival summary.

Anyone heard the ED 12's for an in depth period of time yet?  I'm wondering how they compare to the ED 10's.  All reviews i've heard or seen have only been brief listening sessions which in MY opinion tell you nothing about a headphone. 

I remember hearing the HD 800's for the first time and being blown away. Then I listened for a week and had to put them away before I fell asleep. 

 

I've been using my ED 10's as my go to can for a while and I must say that I simply don't GET all the negative reviews.  I absolutely love them, without buyers remorse, and prefer them over my LCD 3's at the moment. Maybe my ears are ruined..k701smile.gif

some info is better than none. 

 

anyway, it's good to see an ed10 user/fan.

I may be getting a pair of these open box next week. Curiosity is really getting to me. I used to own the PRO2900s which I found too bright/steely but I figured I'd give Ultrasone another chance. Afterall I hated the HD598s and was impressed with the HD700(not impressed enough to keep them mind you.)

The pair was returned because it's owner prefered the LCD-3s. If you're that guy and reading this; that is a comparison I think many of us would love to read. smile.gif

If anyone happens to be following me, you'll know that I've been trying to find a modern headphone that can dethrone my vintage STAX SR-5NB. So far I've tried(in order of preference): Beyerdynamic's T90, Sennheiser's HD700, and the Hifiman HE-6. The Beyer was the most detailed but a little boomy/too smooth. The Senn had everything right but the tone was off and it was too forward. The HE-6 sounded like a cleaner version of the STAX but had even less bass and it nearly caved my skull in.

Please write a little review about the ED 10 as soon as you feel that you have enough to share with us. I am very curious.

Your SR-5NB are amazing phones. I'm not sure if the edition 12 are what you are looking for. They are very light and among ultrasone phones, have one of the nicest signatures I've heard, but next to your stax, they are quite different. Not sure where I stand. Stax is a different world. 

 

The ultrasone is much easier to drive of course!

I'm gonna have to disagree. Not all stax are top tier and in fact most stax setups I'd consider mid-fi. Granted the 009 is perhaps the greatest can ever made in mass production.
