But I actually like their good headphone line, the Pro 900, SigDJ/Pro. :( Those are some quality products most of head fi would agree on with little controversy. Some good sounding cans.

I've been told that 1/2 of the limited editions have been ordered already. It's no all bad for Ultrasone with the Edition 5 as the very 1st person who lined up for it at the show ordered immediately (I'm going to preempt & request please leave out any comments about a person's taste in sound in this thread).

I'm a fan of the Signature series particularly the Pro's & DJ's. But the Editions have a different house sound.

Guys, if there is a market for such products, and it seems that it exists, why not give those people what they want. This is nothing that most companies would do and it is not illegal. Wasn't is Sennheiser with it's Orpheus line that started this business?

Anyways, I could not afford such cans at all, but I could also not effort a Porsche. But if I could, maybe I would.....

Here is what we just got from the US distributor. Not sure what to say about the price......Please dont shoot the messenger:)

 

"Ten years after Ultrasone brought out its very first Edition model, the headphone manufacturer is unveiling its latest masterpiece: the Edition 5.

 

A unique interplay of sound and design. Strictly limited to 555 pieces(UPDATE: just found out that over 400 pcs have been shipped to other international distributors!! We will only have approx 100 to sell in the States!!!!)

 

The closed-back Edition 5, incorporating new, patented S-Logic EX® technology, delivers music like a top-quality hi-fi system and, at the same time, makes a visual and sensory impact with its exclusive materials, such as ancient bog oak, high-grade metal and luxury leather.

 

With its most elaborate fabrication ever, Ultrasone is setting new standards in crafted headphones with its Edition 5."

 

These beautiful and limited edition headphones are for the utmost discreet audio consumer looking to have the absolute BEST in headphone technology. Street price is $4,999.99 and will be available shortly.

Bog oak is £90 a tonne in my part of the world. Good for burning in a thatched cottage as it doesn't 'spit' much. I like the look of it on the Ed5 but am unlikely to be in the queue for them. Happy with the 9s and 10s.

I'm sure that S-Logic EX will find the way to the Pro or Signature Series to improve the soundstage.

Maybe Kim and Kanye are on the list.

£5000 or £2000 , when you are shopping for cans over £1000 it doesn't really matter.
