For the Signature STUDIO, we listened extra carefully...
We listened carefully during the design of the Signature STUDIO – and that went far beyond the tonal balance. Musicians and sound engineers from around the world contributed countless ideas during the development of this new Signature model. They encouraged us to question the status quo and develop a set of ULTRASONE studio headphones with the resolution, robustness and high shielding to impress even the most demanding of users.
Perfect in the studio – and on the road
The Signature STUDIO was designed for modern professional audio applications: these also include mobile use – when editing sound on a notebook, for example – or live use. The choice of driver ensures that audio material can be assessed properly with the greatest range of audio players. From an Apple™ MacBook Pro® audio output through to a professional headphone amp – the Signature STUDIO provides precision playback for all audio sources.
Quiet please: recording!
While developing the Signature STUDIO, we focused on studio use and professional mobile applications. In the case of the latter you need one thing: silence! Thanks to its closed construction, the Signature STUDIO separates you from the outside world so that you can concentrate completely on your work. This quality also makes the Signature STUDIO a welcome partner in the recording studio.
Titanium at its heart: the sound transducer
At the heart of the Signature STUDIO are titanium-coated 40-millimetre Mylar sound transducers. This is the perfect diameter to ensure reliable sound assessment is possible. With a frequency range of 8 to 40000 Hz, the Signature STUDIO covers a spectrum larger than the range of human hearing. The coating with one of the hardest materials in the world guarantees high-resolution and precise reproduction of the audio material.
S-Logic® Plus: large sound stage, fatigue-free listening
With S-Logic®, ULTRASONE created a patented technology over 25 years ago that at once made two essential qualities for professional users possible: it provides a wide sound stage and an excellent depth gradation, meaning that you the user gets the impression you’re wearing a pair of excellent studio monitors than a pair of headphones. S-Logic® also means your hearing is under less strain: a 3–4dB lower sound pressure provides the same perceived volume. This enables long, fatigue-free assessment of the sound reproduction. You can find out how S-Logic® Plus works here.
Robust design for professional use
The ULTRASONE Signature STUDIO exudes professional elegance. The no-nonsense, robust PRO design is made for tough daily use in the recording studio or on the go. Simply put: the Signature STUDIO was designed for demanding use. That means we use the same robust plastic from the PRO series, with its tried and tested durability, for the headband and ear cups. The same criteria were used when choosing the material for the head and ear pads.
High wear comfort for long studio sessions
Along with S-Logic® Plus technology – which makes near fatigue-free sound assessment possible for hours at a time – the combination of the Signature STUDIO’s comfortable cushioning and its light weight of only 290 grams ensures comfortable extended use. The headphones adapt automatically to the wearer’s physiognomy. Breathable materials prevent irritating transpiration under the ear cups. This allows you to focus on the nitty-gritty: the music.
The right accessories for studio and mobile use
The Signature STUDIO comes with all the equipment you need as a professional user. In the studio you can rely on a robust 3-metre cable with a 6.3mm jack, while for mobile use a short 1.2-metre cable with a 3.5mm mini-jack allows you to connect to a notebook, recording device or audio interface. All cables can be securely connected in no time at all with a bayonet fastening that will not come loose. The headphones come with a sturdy box for transporting the headphones and cables.
Hand-crafted in Germany
At ULTRASONE we are proud that we manufacture our products by hand. Each Signature STUDIO model is crafted over many hours by hand at the Raucherberg estate in Bavaria. Many details testify to this, but none more so than the materials used and the high production quality.
S-Logic® Plus is the newest advancement in the S-Logic® Natural Surround System.
S-Logic® Plus profits directly from innovations developed for our flagship Edition range, the ultimate headphones for critical listening. This sophisticated new technology combines precision dampening with micro-acoustic reinforcement, allowing driver, buffer-board, and spatial parameters to complement one another in an optimal manner. So the acoustically redesigned ear-cups of these new models and their tonal fine-tuning result in a most neutral sound impression with more vivid perception of voices and instruments.
How does S-Logic® Natural Surround Sound work?
S-Logic® sends music around your head not just into it, because this technology uses decentralized driver positioning. Did you know that you use and need the outer ear for your three-dimensional understanding to define the direction and distance where a sound comes from? Instead of hitting the inner ear directly, with S-Logic® the signals are reflected off the surface of the outer ear in different directions before entering the auditory canal to create a natural three-dimensional Sound. S-Logic® is the only headphone system which includes your entire sense of hearing. S-Logic® does not change your personal hearing, it intensifies it for your individual needs and listening pleasure. S-Logic® does neither need artificial echo nor digital sound processing or cross over run time delay. You can hear the sound just the way the sound engineer has mastered it. S-Logic® does not only create a Natural Surround Sound sensation. S-Logic® allows at the same time a reduction of sound pressure levels at the eardrum by up to 40% (3 - 4 dB). This may reduce the risk of hearing damage while ensuring hours of fatigue-free listening.
