Ultrasone HFI-700

 

Editor's note: The Ultrasone's HFI-650 has since been discontinued and replaced by the Ultrasone HFI-780 .

Ultradeep, tight, and powerful bass; ultracomfortable design; S-Logic design provides more open sound.

Pricey.

Ultrasone's ultrapotent headphones have a rock-and-roll heart and offer exceptional DVD performance.

Ultrasone HFI-700 Sealed Headphones

 

Sealed design that is very well balanced. Good punchy bass for a sealed can. A lot of detail. Easy to fold up and place in a computer bag. Mucho comfortable. Great 2-year warranty

Not quite as transparent as the more expensive AKG and Sennheiser models. Bass doesn't have the punch of the Sennheiser HD650s. Don't come cheap

The Ultrasone HFI-700 really impressed with their overall sound quality, level of comfort, and portability. Well constructed, healthy technology that will save your ears, and priced reasonably. We're buying them.

Ultrasone HFI-780 Review

 

Ultrasone is one of the lesser known, yet quite respected, German headphone manufacturers. They just released the newest member of their mid-ranged product line of closed headphones, the HFI-780. Sporting low impedance, decent sensitivity, foldable...

The Ultrasone HFI-780 are very good sounding closed headphones for the money. They do almost everything right if you're looking for forward sounding and precise phones that work great across the whole audible frequency range, no matter what music...

Ultrasone HFI-700 Headphones

 

A relative newcomer to the high-end headphone market, German manufacturer Ultrasone is making waves in the industry with their competitively-priced offerings that deliver excellent sound quality and value. We take their HFI-700 headphones for a spin,...

Balanced, clear sound ; Clean, articulate bass ; S-Logic design provides lifelike reproduction ; Comfortable to wear for long periods ; Collapsible design for portability

Somewhat 'forward' sound can be ear-fatiguing ; Lofty price tag isn't for everyone

Until I was asked to review these headphones by our Editor-in-Chief Rob, I had never heard of Ultrasone. However, the company is working actively to make waves in the American head-fi market with their attractive, competitively-priced offerings. While...

Ultrasone HFI-700 Stereo Headphones

 

Consumer review by:

"Great sound, uncomfortable for long time"

 

A good pair of headphones for listening to music/movies. If you wear them for too long they start to hurt your ears though.

+ Great sound

- After long use, it begins to hurt your ears

Consumer review by:

"Amazing, transparent, powerful and 'wide' sound."

 

After extensive reading of headphone reviews I bought this one to go with my new MP3-player. I bought the MP3-player (iRiver Clix2) for best sound quality and wanted a pair of headphones to do the sound quality justice.

Amazingly detailed, powerful and transparent sound never heard before in this price range. The s-logic sound has to be heard to be believed. Comfortable and solid build, foldable.

Very long cord when used with an MP3-player

"For their price, the best cans bar none"

 

Glad my HD280s came apart (after 4 years, tho) cus I wouldn't have these otherwise. It's been over a year and I still LOVE THEM!!

Tight bass, isolation/noise blockage

nothing yet

"Better than you would ever think"

 

These are by far the best headphones I have ever purchased. These headphones will blow your mind. Any thing you listen to on these things are completely different than you thought. Buy these now.

Great, deep bass. Crystal clear.

Long cord, but who really cares.

Product Specifications

Through the S-Logic Natural Surround Sound the usual headphone sound will be moved out of the head in the room around you. The sound is no longer locked in, but appears broad and detached. Directions and distances can be heard and perceived - it's just like being in a live concert. For this new technology additional equipment is not required. A pair of Ultrasone headphones plus your sound device and you will be ready for the 3-dimensional music enjoyment! In addition, the HFI-700 is easy on the ears: The S-Logic Natural Surround Sound System allows an up to 40% lower dB output (3-4 dB) for the same loudness sensation, thereby the risk of hearing defects may be reduced enormously. Like all the Ultrasone headphones, the HFI-700 has a strongly reduced radiation. The standard version LE (= Low Emission) offers a reduction of up to 60% in comparison with ordinary headphones. It is certified and recommended by Technical Surveillance Organizations and Consumer Advice Centers with certified low magnetic field emissions. These superior headphones are developed from the studio sector and are distinguished by a frequency response especially tuned for DVD. Sophisticated home cineasts and music enthusiasts are overwhelmed by the extraordinary sound that appears as though you are listening to speakers meters away from your head. Also demanding PC gamers appreciate the HFI-700 because of the impressing three-dimensional sound effects. The low frequency ranges are being risen in order to reach the highest possible synergies towards DSP-Systems like Dolby Headphone and Yamaha Silent Cinema. Due to customer enquiries Ultrasone implemented an additional function which enables you to fold back and up the individual earpiece without removing the headphones from your head. Due to this folding mechanism, these headphones can be compactly stored and easily transported in a suitcase. Thanks to its closed construction, external noise is suppressed.
