When you're looking for a premium pair of headphones, Ultrasone is one of the first names that should come to mind. They're some of the most respected cans in the industry, and once you've heard them, it's easy to understand why. Ultrasone also has a good reputation as an innovator, with all of their headphones including the home-brewed Ultra Low Emission (ULE) technology, a system that limits the effect of magnetic fields which all headphones naturally produce.
Ultrasone's studio-oriented line is the PRO series. Starting from the PRO 550, these are closed-back headphones with detachable cables and earpads. You get spares of each along with the cans, as well as a carry case—and the headphones are foldable, so they're easy to transport. All of the PRO series feature 50mm drivers powered by Ultrasone's "S-Logic" surround sound system, which can render direction and distance in the sound to create a whole-room soundstage. S-Logic also allows lower sound pressures even at higher volumes, which makes the headphones easier on the ears so you can listen for hours without tiring them out. The PRO 750 model ups the ante with titanium-plated drivers and velvet earpads, while the PRO 900 tops the list with the addition of S-Logic Plus, an advanced version of the standard system that aims to create the most neutral, universally responsive soundstage possible.
