Wildomar, CA (June 2, 2009)–Ultrasone Inc., distributor for German headphone manufacturer Ultrasone AG, has introduced the Zino portable headphone.
Designed for use with iPods, MP3 players and other portable music players, Ultrasone’s Zino features the company’s patented S-Logic and ULE safe listening technologies in a mobile design.
The Zino features gunmetal black, brushed aluminum ear cups and silver colored diamond-cut aluminum nameplates. Though designed for mobile applications, it features two 40mm gold plated drivers, more commonly are found in full-sized studio headphones. The Zino also folds to fit into an included carrying case
Rather than directing the sound to the listener’s ear canal, as most conventional headphones do, S-Logic technology employs decentralized drivers that direct audio to the listener’s outer ear. This technology, says the manufacturer, not only gives the user a natural surround experience in a stereo headphone by utilizing the ear’s anatomy, but it also reduces sound pressure on the eardrums by 40 percent.
Additionally, the Zino features MU-Metal shielding (ULE technology) that reduces the amount of radiation directed to the listener by up to 98 percent, as compared to conventional headphones.
“The combination of eye-catching aesthetics, phenomenal sound and convenient portability makes Zino the best mobile headphones Ultrasone has ever created,” said Paul Taylor, President of Ultrasone Inc. “Music lovers, concerned about the effects that ear buds have on their hearing, will be glad to know a safer and better sounding headphone solution is here.”
