How many aging rockers complain they damaged their hearing after too many years of listening at ear-bleeding volumes? No idea. They only respond, “Huh?”, when you ask.
Over at Ultrasone, they’ve got a pair of headphones that they claim are not only the best sounding you’ve ever used, but are also the safest.
Here’s why: Using their patented S-Logic™ technology, a decentralized driver directs sound to your outer ear, rather than ramming it down your ear canal, delivering a natural surround sound while reducing pressure on your ear drum by up to 40%. The result is music that sounds like it’s coming from around the room like a concert, rather than banging around in your head, for a much more natural sound.
And if the whole “radiation danger” thing from headphones and cell phones has you concerned, they’ve also developed a ULE-technology that reduces the Ultrasone’s electro magnetic radiation up to 98% over standard headphones.
Both sets in the line, the closed-back HFI-580 (left) and the open-back HFI-2200 (right), are foldable and come with a travel bag. So you can feel free to crank up the volume and tune out that incessantly crying baby on your cross-country flight.
