Ultrasone HFI-580

 

Typically, when a pair of headphones promises surround sound, I roll my eyes and just wish the manufacturer was touting plain old (better-sounding) stereo. Ultrasone's reasonably priced $199 HFI-580 is outfitted with what the company calls "S Logic...

Fine for all types of music, particularly genres with deeper bass. Smooth low-end. Adds a twinge of brightness to an otherwise flat response. Solidly constructed.

Surround-sound effect sounds a lot like stereo. Large and bulky.

With the HFI-580, Ultrasone promises integrated surround sound. All I heard was a lovely sound signature that seemed suspiciously like stereo.

German headphone maker Ultrasone's HFI-580s block out noise without plugging up your ear canals or using active cancellation circuitry. The S-Logic “natural surround” technology and radiation shielding may seem gimmicky, but these great-sounding cans...

Veyr lively and wide sound; attractive design; earcups fold into headband

Extreme deep bass could use some extra power; headband padding is hard

The Ultrasone HFI-580's are impressively accurate-sounding for closed-backed headphones.

I haven't been able to find better sound for the money. I can't imagine why I would ever pay more or buy a different product.

Great frequency range

Padding isn't nearly thick enough to pull the drivers all the way away from my ears - can be a little uncomfortable after a long day of wearing them

I purchased these headphones to replace a pair of active noise cancelling headphones that I have owned for several years. I was immediately surprised by how much ambient noise the Ultrasones blocked. While they may not be as good for blocking the drone...

Product Specifications

The closed-back HFI-580 shows its very exclusive design and improved sound quality in a black-pearl colored outfit. These headphones offer tight powerful bass, precise and detailed instrument placement with an impressive power spectrum. The HFI-580 is made for high power input with very efficient 50 mm heavy duty drivers and a persuasive sound intensity. The HFI-580 is ideal for bass players and drummers. Through S-Logic Natural Surround, the sound moves out of your head and into the room around you. Consequently, the music is no longer confined, but breathing once again, spacious and organic. Direction and distance are more easily perceived - it's like being at a live concert. With just a pair of Ultrasones and your favorite audio device, prepare yourself for genuine 3-dimensional enjoyment! S-Logic Plus is the newest advancement in the S-Logic Natural Surround System, squeezing the BIG S-Logic soundstage found in headphones into the more streamlined ear-cups of select HFI model. S-Logic Plus profits directly from innovations developed for a flagship Edition range, the ultimate headphones for critical listening. This sophisticated technology combines precision damping with micro-acoustic reinforcement, allowing driver, buffer-board, and spatial parameters to compliment one another in an optimal manner. So the acoustically redesigned ear-cups of the model and its tonal fine-tuning result in a most neutral sound impression, including more vivid perception of voices and instruments. S-Logic does not only create a Natural Surround Sound. S-Logic allows at the same time a reduction of sound pressure levels by up to 40% for the same loudness sensation. This may reduce the risk of hearing damage while ensuring hours of fatigue-free listening.
