10 pages here of blablablabla for this very specific and luxury product and not even a serious review about the real open flagship edition12. Signature series are never adviced anywhere and these cans are IMO one of the most underrated and underknwon flagship. I heard briefly an edition12 ans it's a very good headphone , but Ultrasone is more known for luxury products .
Yes, you can argue Edition 12 is a good headphone, and probably Edition 8 is the best headphone they ever made. Yes, they are a lot better than most of earbuds on the market, but....
Edition 8 costs 1.5K USD while 840 costs 150~200 USD. Their performance is quite similar except Edition 8 has one hell of distortion on bottom freq (which ALL of Ultrasones do). Both headphones are quite comparable with performance and quality of sound except the price : Edition 8 costs 10 times more than 840.
Here is some headphones you can get it with same price or less :
except Grado flagships (which actually measure far worse), Ultrasone is just outmatched in all areas.
Sorrodje, everyone, I mean everyone who are active here for a long time knows about Ultrasone, I still remember 'there is something about Ultrasone' mega thread, and it was madly popular during 2007~2008, there is a reason why popularity eventually died down eventually, while we are still seeing old Sennheiser and AKG headphones popular in this forum (HD600 is now nearly 20 years old, mind you)
