Ultrasone HFI review

 

Ultrasone has carved out a notable niche in the high-end headphone market since its founding in 1991. One of its latest models is the HFI-680, a full-size pair of headphones that retails for around $220. The HFI-680 is a handsome design, and its build...

Ultrasone's nicely built, full-size, closed-back headphones hush outside noise; includes 10-foot-long cable, soft carry bag; sounds swell on iPod.

Overly bassy sound.

The Ultrasone HFI-680 headphones' abundant bass power, forgiving treble, and isolation from external noise should make these an attractive choice for some buyers.

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-780

 

Built to last, comfortable fit, enthusiastic, detailed sound

Each extreme of the frequency range is quite easily provoked

Big and bold, the HFI-780s offer excitement in spades

Very Happy with Headphone HFI-780

 

Got my headphones three weeks ago. They are good from the first minute, and after 250 hours of break-in the sound got even better. I cannot understand how could I listen to the music with my old Logitech headphones for an extended period of time - they...

Controversal Ultrasone HFI-780

 

Ultrasone headphones are getting a lot of attention all over the internet due to probably very good marketing efforts. Before buying it for some reason I thought that I will be getting one of the best headphones on the planet in the price range. After...

Bright, detailed sound, powerful bass, wide soundstage

Uncomfortable, too aggressive sounding

A Different World Of Sound!

 

Most nights I watch a movie or a recording of a TV sci-fi or action show. I'm fortunate to have assembled an impressive 5.1 surround sound system which completely dominates our living space but unfortunate to have a partner who is early to bed, early...

Stellar sound and better than average build quality

Price may put some people off. Not real 5.1 surround

Good choice for sealed headphones.

 

First off, let me say that I own a lot of higher-end headphones. The HFI-780s are not the best I've ever heard, but they are very good and one of the better options if you need sealed headphones. If you don't, I'd give consideration to AKG,...

Good sound quality, low price, 1/8" plug, very good cable

Less comfortable than non-sealing, prominent bass
