    @jude, you devil!! My wallet is going to hate you!
    Thanks for those great pictures. The Edition 15 really look gorgeous and based on your description they have the sound to go with them :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I did like the Edition 8 Ruthenium in small doses, for about half an hour. Initially it would sound clear, wide and open, but it would always eventually become apparent that there was something odd, unnatural and "fake" about the sound...something I could not live with in the long term.

    Something else that always bothered me about Ultrasone. The S-Logic was supposed to fire sound towards the outer ear, yet the drivers were always placed at the pinna, on all the models I owned.

    Have you check the EX models (8 and 15). There is a change in the S-Logic design. It is to the front lower area and the driver is now angled. IMO the 8 EX sounds pretty good specially on the midrange and highs. It sounds clear, detailed and with a natural tone compared to other Ultrasone I have heard or owned. The bass in some recordings can get a little boomy but it depend on the recording is not always and I think a good OCC Copper or Silver cable would help to tight it up.

    Yeah, I'm also seriously thinking about pre-ordering this model. My FLHS (Favorite Local Headphones Store) told me that Ultrasone has not decided on the sales details (price, release date, etc.) in US yet. But as soon as it becomes open for pre-ordering, I will place an order.

    On the Ultrasone euro website it says the price is 2,100 euro. So that's about $2400 dollars in exchange rates. Not a bad price. Limited to 999.

    Thank you very much for the info. The price sounds actually great. I thought the price would be around $3500 based on Japanese price.

    It will be great if that is the price converted to dollars here in the US but I seriously doubt it. My bet is that Ultrasone will raise the price here. For instance their website in Europe show the Edition 8 EX at 1,511.76 euros that is $1,783.36 usd and the price here in the US is $2,199.99. Based on this I would expect the price of the Edition 15 around $3,050-$3,100. I hope I am wrong....:fingers_crossed::fingers_crossed:

    Wow!! Now open for pre-order in Europe!!
    My FLHS (Favorite Local Headphones Store) have not received any word from Ultrasone USA since I inquire about Edition 15.
    Hope they set the release date and US price soon!!!
    Thank you for the info!!

    You might be right. I guess we shall see right?

    Man, that looks really nice....the case too is beautiful. Have to hand it to Ultrasone - in terms of aesthetics alone, they are the BMW/Mercedes of headphones. Their German brothers Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic are not even close.

    I just called my FLHS (Favorite Local Headphones Store) and was told that the US price will be $2999.
    But this number is not finalized yet. Also the US release date is mid to end of December (most likely).

    I asked them to hold one for me.

    I guess I was not that far off with my guess.... :wink:
