(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-06-14)
Ultrasone Inc., distributor for German headphone manufacturer Ultrasone AG, has revealed that its S-Logic™ technology has been awarded the Innovation Plus X Award® for its state-of-the-art technology and future-proof design. The internationally renowned Plus X Award® is the largest technology, sports and lifestyle competition in the world. Winning technologies are selected by a panel comprised of 144 distinguished members, handpicked for their expertise in numerous industries, hailing from 32 different countries.
"To have our S-Logic™ technology recognized as a breakthrough innovation by one of the most renowned international design competitions is a tremendous honor,” remarked Michael Zirkel, Ultrasone’s COO. “Ultrasone’s goal has always been to design the world’s best sounding and safest headphones. We believe our patented S-Logic™ technology results in the purest and most elegant listening experience to be found anywhere, all while helping to protect the listener’s hearing."
Ultrasone’s patented S-Logic™ technology is best described as a natural surround sound system. Rather than directing the audio signal to the listener’s ear canal, as most conventional headphones do, S-Logic™ technology employs decentralized drivers that direct audio to the listener’s outer ear. This technology not only gives the user a natural surround experience in a stereo headphone by utilizing the ear’s anatomy, but it also reduces sound pressure on the eardrums by an astonishing 40%.
