Ultrasone’s patented S-Logic® Plus technology and ULE shielding system are part of the basic configuration of the Performance 840. The black material combination of soft-touch lacquer and glossy accents gives these headphones a casual elegance and is palpable proof of the precise workmanship. Whether for small ears or large ones, Ultrasone never fails to deliver when it comes to wear-comfort. The comfort aspect was a priority when the spacious inner cups of the Performance series were being constructed. After all, professionals and music aficionados alike do not want to be irritated by the fit of the headphones, but want to forget that they are on their head altogether. The specially developed metal headbands of the Performance 840 were designed to snugly fit each and every individual head shape. The extremely comfortable velour ear pads – available as accessories – contain memory foam and will adjust themselves to fit your head shape perfectly. This means they are pleasant to wear while offering best possible insulation against external noise.
S-Logic® Plus is the newest advancement in the S-Logic® Natural Surround System, squeezing the BIG S-Logic® soundstage found in our PRO series headphones into the more streamlined ear-cups of select HFI & DJ models (HFI-580, HFI-680, HFI-780, DJ1).
S-Logic® Plus profits directly from innovations developed for our flagship Edition range, the ultimate headphones for critical listening. This sophisticated new technology combines precision dampening with micro-acoustic reinforcement, allowing driver, buffer-board, and spatial parameters to complement one another in an optimal manner. So the acoustically redesigned ear-cups of these new models and their tonal fine-tuning result in a most neutral sound impression with more vivid perception of voices and instruments.
How does S-Logic® Natural Surround Sound work?
S-Logic® sends music around your head not just into it, because this technology uses decentralized driver positioning. Did you know that you use and need the outer ear for your three-dimensional understanding to define the direction and distance where a sound comes from? Instead of hitting the inner ear directly, with S-Logic® the signals are reflected off the surface of the outer ear in different directions before entering the auditory canal to create a natural three-dimensional Sound. S-Logic® is the only headphone system which includes your entire sense of hearing. S-Logic® does not change your personal hearing, it intensifies it for your individual needs and listening pleasure. S-Logic® does neither need artificial echo nor digital sound processing or cross over run time delay. You can hear the sound just the way the sound engineer has mastered it.
S-Logic® does not only create a Natural Surround Sound sensation. S-Logic® allows at the same time a reduction of sound pressure levels at the eardrum by up to 40% (3 - 4 dB). This may reduce the risk of hearing damage while ensuring hours of fatigue-free listening.
