Ultrasone Debuts New HFI -15G Portable Headphone

New lightweight headphone features patented surround sound technology for exceptional sound quality on-the-go

Wildomar, Calif. - (November 20, 2008) - Ultrasone Inc., distributor for German headphone manufacturer Ultrasone AG, proudly announces its latest headphone innovation: the HFI -15G. Designed for portable listening applications, the HFI -15G is the smallest headphone in the Ultrasone HFI line but still features Ultrasone's patented S -Logic™ Natural Surround Sound technology.

The HFI -15G are open -back, supra -aural headphones that deliver superior sonic clarity. Thanks to Ultrasone's S -Logic™ technology, the new HFI -15G allows the user to experience a natural surround sound sensation without the use of digital processing. Additionally, S -Logic™ technology reduces sound pressure on the ear drum by up to 40%, resulting in a safer listening experience for the user.

All of this is made possible by utilizing a decentralized driver position. Simply put, S -Logic™ directs sound to the listener's outer ear as opposed to directing sound into the inner ear. The human ear relies on the outer ear for three -dimensional understanding or defining the direction and distance where a sound comes from.

"With the mainstream popularity of portable music players, we wanted to introduce a pair of headphones that contained all of our safe listening technology, but were also easily portable," commented Paul Taylor, President of Ultrasone Inc. "The HFI -15Gs sound quality is second to none and most importantly, they can be enjoyed for hours without discomfort, fatigue, or hearing damage."

The HFI -15G has a MSRP of $109 and is available at Guitar Centers, Moog Music, Audio Midi.com, Bayview Pro Audio and Northern Sound and Light.
