I'm afraid my english is not good enough but what I want to say is exactly what's quoted above.

Why shouldn't people have strong biases towards a company who hasn't proved themselves yet as a top competitor?

Because of the aesthetics we refuse to give up all hope...

I personally would love Ultrasone to produce a top end headphone that matched their visual appeal.

 

We would then have a dynamic headphone to match the sonics of the topline Stax electrostats.

 

Do  I believe Ultrasone can do it?  Not on their past record.

 

Do I hope they can do it?  YES, even with S-Logic.

Okay- I'll bite.  I heard them VERY briefly at the Headphone Festival in May.  Because this was a VERY BRIEF listen and I generally refrain from giving impressions unless I am quite sure of myself (which is rare), please take this with a bucket of salt.  I do concur with an earlier impression that these are more neutral sounding than the ED10s.  Thus, I think they will be a bit less polarizing than those.  My problem with them from an SQ perspective is that they sound a bit more ordinary- almost like a DT880 is what I wrote in my notes.  At least with the ED10 you could say that they have a unique sound and that is what you paid for.  With the ED12 my impression was something like, "Hmmm... these sound okay.  But so do my $300 DT880s."

 

Just to be clear, these are impressions based on only a few minutes of listening.  And to give some background, I have mixed feelings about the ED10s (and Ultrasone in general).  I've had decent auditions with them and some that were not as good.  I feel that they (ED10s) are some of the nicest made headphones out there, and if I were stinkin' rich I'd probably buy them just for that.  Also, although the velour pads on the ED12 are nice, I think I prefer the leather ones of the ED10.  They're a bit more comfortable and definitely more rich/classy looking.

i jus came from reading a unbelievable thread on "usb cable"...

and now this thread on an unreleased headfone no one has heard..bar ONE.

Headfiers are an incredible FUN bunch.

When i first heard the "surround logic" test cd that came with my first ultrasone can i was quite impressed really.

My Pro900 is not going anywhere, its the best can in my stable...at usd200bucks :P

just cant see how Ultrasone can improve on the sound i am hearing off my setup.

Listed price of the Ultrasones are madness vs actual performance.

 

What caught my eyes is the flat velor pads on the new butterfly ed12....

y isnt ultrasone angling their drivers/pads? are they?

The essence of the "S-logic" technology is the angling of the drivers.

Get ready for a month of useless, speculative, and sometimes entertaining posts until this is actually released into the wild...

Once again - misinformation.

The angled pads of jmoney did wonders on my pro900.

Me not buying any Ultrasones did wonders for my hearing.

I think not. Read the paper from the Ultrasone's founder on S-Logic and see for yourself..

Ultrasone’s S-Logic attempts to improve the image presented by placing the driver off-center, somewhat forward and down from the entrance of the ear canal.
