Each Edition 10 is hand-made in Germany and offers open natural sound design without any limitations. The Edition 10 is the first OPEN-BACK pair of Edition headphones by Ultrasone. The wings of a butterfly inspired the basic look.
It's the perfect combination in technology and luxury. Materials of the highest quality have been chosen to encompass the latest developments in open-back sound technology. Enjoy the know-how and passion embedded in each Edition 10 model.
Creating a complete new headphone design is always promising but Ultrasone has risen to that challenge and designed from the ground up an amazingly rich product, utilizing the best combination of superlative styling, finest materials, and sound technologies.
The Edition 10 is the first OPEN-BACK pair of Edition headphones by Ultrasone. The wings of a butterfly inspired the basic look. Ultrasone Edition headphones not only provide brilliant sound but couple that with best materials available. Precious Ethiopian sheepskin leather covers ear cups and head band. Enjoy the comfort of the balanced and matched dark brown sheepskin leather. This is the smoothest leather available. The noble metal matt ruthenium, which is known for its elegant look and durable properties, covers the ear cups. The decorative shiny warm finish of the ruthenium surface shows a variety of eye-catching reflections. The ear cups are emblazoned with inlays of decorous Zebrano wood. Featuring a unique and stylish full metal headband that is also an extremely lightweight, solid design also bestow the highest comfort at the same time. Summing all this up, these headphones stand for extravagance in comfort, sound, surface feel and appearance.
Included you will find a specifically designed Edition 10 headphone stand. The geometrical alignment has been transferred from the ear cup inlays to define the delicate shape. This stand is a piece of art. To complete this complementary styling, the stand is made of the same Zebrano wood as the clasps on the outer ear cups. This elegant stand secures a safe storage for the edition 10 headphones.
Of course, edition 10 is equipped with the latest technologies such as ULE-technology (Mu Metal shielding) and S-Logic Plus technology. The special cable with silver-plated oxygen-free copper and Aramid fiber endows the Edition 10 with greater electron flow, lower weight and a maximum of flexibility and durability.

Thank goodness I found these. The only problem was the exclusivity of the item. There were 2010 of these made, which I find unacceptable. The whole point of headphones is that they make you look better than other people, and I am frankly uninterested in 2009 people being in any way close to my level of superiority. Luckily, I just got my paycheck through, so I was able to buy 2009 of these items, meaning that there will only be one other person able to own them. I am secretly hoping it will be Kanye West.
As you will note from the item description, 'Ethiopian fine brown long hair sheep leather is used for the earbuds', which is all well and good. Personally, I would prefer them to have been fashioned from the broken dreams of child prostitutes and glued together with the tears of rainbow-maned unicorns, but I guess if you want that, you're going to have to pay a ridiculous amount and these are merely headphones after all. No, I'm happy I went for the cheap option.
The package arrived on a sunny Sunday afternoon. I immediately took it to my secret study in the attic, where I carefully opened it. My dreams came true. My life was complete.
I plugged it in and put them on my head. There was only one way to test their true powers. I played some classic Justin Bieber and the headphones did their magic. Normally, I would have fainted twelve seconds in, but now... everything was different. The rhythm, the melody, the lyrics, everything was wonderful. There was so much depth in the music, so much beauty, it sounded like a lonely fairy in the night mourning her lost lover over a dark lake in the woods in autumn.
I know why we are here now. I know what the meaning of life is. I saw God. I saw all the gods.
£1800 is a low price to pay for this experience. The manufacturer (most likely an ancient wizard) could have wished for so much more.
I urge you, find a way to obtain one and try it yourself.
The headphones take about 200 hours to 'break' but once the iodised filaments (coated AND etched) have given birth the new youngster certainly has a pair of lungs on him. Or her - but I always think of headphones as boys.
The first thing I noticed was the sheer buttressy significance of the rumble-space. It was grabbing but never shaking. The twin spanks go deeper than is usual and you can see (or hear) that the amount of time making sure that 'crickle-crackle' is at a quite low level has been fairly successful. Although I don't mind a bit of 'crickle-crackle', particularly on old records that the dog has played with.
Vocals are luxurious as you would expect and run down your chin. The backswing has a hefty amount of back story to it but does nothing to detract from the slightly gossipy coven of micro-witches arranged around the middle bulge.
Good sound but I would have preferred the build quality to have more rubber and plastic in it.

I also have Audeze LCD3, AKG702 and the Ed8. They do not come close in terms of fidelity and giving me the feeling of being there. It is like listening in 3D. The problem with fidelity is just that. The treble can sound harsh, painful and distorted, the bass can sound bloated etc. BUT only if that is what is on the recording. They disguise nothing. Give them a well engineered recording and they sound silky smooth and transparent from top to bottom.
Like most phones of this class the Ed10 need a good headphone amp to show their best but they still sound fine straight out of my AK240.
The only phones I have heard to match them are the Ed5 and they are closed back.
These headphones are a limited run of 2010 units. They've been out for nearly 2 1/2 years now. There's a reason they haven't sold out yet. And it's not the pricetag.
There are many headphones that this PoS can't even touch in terms of tonal quality (LCD-2), clarity (Tesla T1), and soundstage (HD800). There are also many much, MUCH cheaper alternatives for those phones, such as the HD600, or the DT1350.
To sum it all up, these are for people who want to show off their wealth and nothing more. And seriously, if you have this much money to throw away, just donate it to some sort of charity or invest in a REAL pair of headphones like the ones I mentioned. If you care about looks, all of them are quite amazingly crafted. Just please, for the love of God: Do not buy these headphones.
EDIT: I recently upgraded the stock cables to Moon Audio Silver Dragons -- Made a HUGE difference on an already great headphone. The stock cable isn't all too great. Go with Moon Audio, Cardas Clear (if you can afford it), Whiplash, Lawton Audio (maybe? Mostly for Denons..), etc.
