Ultrasone Inc., distributor for German headphone manufacturer Ultrasone AG, announced the release of its "most deluxe special edition headphone to date" – Edition 8 Limited.

Based off the design of the original Edition 8 headphone, these new special edition headphones will be limited to only 888 units worldwide and feature luxurious details.

The Edition 8 Limited is a dark brown and silver closed-back headphone that employs Ultrasone’s S-Logic Plus technology, “resulting in an impartial acoustic feeling that affords the listener the utmost spacious tonal perception, ” according to the company. Ultrasone’s newest headphones also contain MU-Metal shielding (ULE technology) designed to reduce the amount of radiation directed to the listener by up to 98%, as compared to conventional headphones.

Ultrasone has crafted the outer ear cups with Ruthenium in a matte finish, reducing smudges and finger prints. The outer ear cups are also embossed with a walnut inlay, which received seven layers of clear coating to safeguard against scratches. To complete the aesthetic, each inner ear cup is adorned with dark brown Ethiopian sheepskin, which is designed to provide the most isolation of any leather.

Each Edition 8 Limited headphone is housed in a stately wooden box for safe storage and transportation. As there will only be 888 Edition 8 headphones produced, Ultrasone has individually stamped each headphone with its own serial number.
