Like everything Ultrasone, it sucks.
Having said that: Their true calling are probably vacuum cleaners.

Apparently they use "noble, solid woods" and "finest sheep leather" (I'm assuming the leather is more for the headphones rather than amplifiers!)

All I can say is that the trees and sheep of Bavaria must be very bespoke and premium!

"ELEGANT, POWERFULL UND WARM-HEARTED"

Ultrasone - where the levels of engineering and orthography are on par.

What do you reckon: do they need to sell two or three of these things to break even on their "R&D"?
Seems like a desperation move to me... is Ultrasone going under?

I guess there is a good chance. 19k euros is a bit more than 22k dollars. There are entire audiophile systems i could buy for that and still have some change.
