Anaheim, CA (January 9, 2008)–Ultrasone of America, LLC, the North & South American distributor for German headphone manufacturer Ultrasone AG, is introducing its next generation of headphones at the NAMM Show, January 17-20, 2008 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
The update starts with Ultrasone PRO (formerly known as PROline), which includes the PRO 550, 650, 750 and 2500 models. New features of all Ultrasone PRO headphones include a semi-hard case for storage and transport of headphones and accessories, including spare earpads, removable cables and 1/4-inch mini adaptor, and an aluminum nameplate.
New features of the Ultrasone HFI line include the addition of the HFI 580 and 780 models with new S-Logic Plus. The S-Logic Plus system is the enhanced version of S-Logic based on the earcup design of Ultrasone’s limited-run Edition 9 headphones. This system enables a level of acoustic fine-tuning with even more neutral sound impression and optimized distance perception of voices and instruments, according to the manufacturer.
The Ultrasone HFI 2200 also receives an update with an aluminum nameplate, MU metal shielding and velvet transportation bag.
The Ultrasone DJ line, designed especially with DJs in mind, has also received updates. The DJ1 model now features S-Logic Plus, an aluminum nameplate, MU metal shielding and velvet transportation bag. The DJ1 PRO model is enhanced with aluminum nameplate and a hard case for storage and transport.
“The huge number of musicians, producers and engineers that attend the NAMM Show make it the perfect venue to unveil Ultrasone’s next generation of headphones,” says Cathy Kelly, President of Ultrasone of America. “More music professionals than ever before are discovering the serious increases in accuracy and hearing protection they receive from ULTRASONE headphones. We’re pleased to give our users even more with these significant enhancements to the PRO, HFI and DJ lines.”
All new Ultrasone models can be heard throughout NAMM during the Ultrasone Mixing Contest at Booth #6298. Contestants will be able to mix the song “15” by Tooth and Nail recording artists Surrogate using Ultrasone headphones. Mixes will be judged by a celebrity panel, with the winner receiving a pair of Ultrasones of their choice (Edition 9 excluded).
