When it comes to headphones I want something that sounds better than the junk that ships with my iPhone, but I certainly won't spend hundreds of bucks, let alone thousands for a set of headphones. If you are an audiophile with money to burn or a new credit card to break in Ultrasone has a new set of headphones called the Edition 10 headphones.

The things are the first open back headphones to come from Ultrasone and are a limited edition. Only 2010 units will be made and each will have its own serial number. The Edition 10 headphones have a Zebrano wood stand and a wooden storage box. The drivers are paired for optimum sound and are 40mm each. Ultrasone also uses magnets that are 10% more powerful than others for higher sound pressure levels.

The frequency range of the headphones is 5-45000 Hz and impedance is 35 ohms. The cord is 3-meteres long and is 99.99% pure copper for the best sound. The plug is a 6.3mm gold-plated unit. Each ear pad is covered in Ethiopian sheepskin, which is supposed to be the supplest leather available. Each ear cup is covered in galvanic Ruthenium plating with a Zebrano wood inlay. The most interesting feature of the headphones is the price. Ultrasone commands $2,749 per set of the headphones.
