Chances are pretty good that it's just poor artwork. Can't imagine the folks at Ultrasone haven't yet figured out the difference between open and closed. Wonder if there's a Wiki we can refer them to, just in case.
I agree with oqvist. Turning this threat into an appreciation thread would mean there'd by 30+ pages of people complaining about the price before any impressions were even posted. Perhaps this should be kept as the launch thread, and then a separate appreciation thread can be made by someone?
Thinker or myself (or someone else who pre-ordered) could post the appreciation thread when we actually get them and have impressions.
Agreed, the appreciation thread should be a separate thread altogether once people have them and have a chance to listen. A year from now, it would be a shame if someone had to flip through 40 pages of posts before getting to one about how they sound.
S-logic is part of the soundstaging yes. The drivers is always displaced but on the 900 if you cover the vent holes you do get less "surround" but you still get a soundstage that is nicely projected a bit in front of you. . More depth and less width compared to headphones that don´t angle or displace the drivers in general. Those vent holes do effect the sound as well some. Look up KeeS mod and you may get some comparisons.
