Normally, you'd have to fork out thousands of dollars on an expensive, top-of-the-line speaker system to hear music like this. As it turns out, all you need is a set of Ultrasone HFI-700's!

Deep Bass and Extra Wide Soundfield
Whether you are a surround mixer, a gamer, or avid music listener, you'll love the 3D effect of Ultrasone HFI-700 headphones. The soundstage of the Ultrasone HFI-700's is enourmous. Normally, closed headpones are said to have an in-the-head-feeling - not so for the HFI-700. The music is out-of-the-head. With the Ultrasone HFI-700 you can clearly identify the location of instruments.

ULTRASONE HFI-700 Features:

Isolation without giving up the honest sound of an open headphone.
Natural Surround Sound, directions and distances can be heard and perceived.
40% lower dB output for the same loudness sensation reduces risks of hearing loss.
Reduced Magnetic Field Emissions.
Extended low frequency response.
Earcups fold back and up without having to remove headphones.
Open Sound in Isolation: the sound is perceived in front of you and beside you, broad and detached. SPL's reduced up to 40%. For studio, professional, and general music enjoyment. No other ULTRASONE has such a long list of reference customers.

S-LogicNatural Surround Sound
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. With Ultrasone HFI-700 , 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 HFI-700 headphones plus a simple CD player and you will be ready for the 3-dimensional music enjoyment!

Safer Hearing
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.

Character

Extended Low Frequency Range
The low frequency ranges of the Ultrasone HFI-700's are extended in order to accomodate the frequency response found in DSP-Systems like Dolby Headphoneand Yamaha Silent Cinema.

Foldable Earcups
The Ultrasone HFI-700's have an additional features which enables you to fold back and up the individual earpiece without removing these headphones from your head in order to be con-nected immediately with the "outside world" again.

One of the things that set Ultrasone headphones apart from all others is the S-Logic Natural Surround Sound. Every pair of Ultrasone headphones is equipped with S-Logic. S-Logic is not Ultrasone's only signature-feature, either. The S-Logic Natural Surround Sound is just that: a natural surround sound in the headphones. S-Logic deludes your ears into believing you are standing in a room with speakers all around you. I had my doubts about the S-Logic at first, but the reality speaks for itself. S-Logic is without question a great, innovative feature that really adds an advantage to the overall Ultrasone experience.

The HFI-700s are crystal-clear sounding, comfortable, portable, sealed headphones with good, not overemphasized bass.

Most sealed headphones err on the side of being too warm; the HFI-700 is a clear change. These headphones are articulate and crystal clear. The bass is good and not over-emphasized, though maybe slightly resonant sounding. The mids are clear and without blatant coloration; not easy in sealed headphones , the highs are quite good. Though a bit lacking in a sense of liquid transition between the various frequency ranges, these headphones are good over-all performers and certainly among the best of the full sized sealed headphones available.

These full-sized sealed headphones are an all plastic design that allow the ear pieces to either swivel flat for storage in a narrow space (like in your brief case), or fold up into the space inside the headband. The ear pads are cushioned with foam pads covered with a nice quality pleather. The cord exits from the left earpiece and is terminated 10 feet later with a stereo mini-plug; also included is a screw on 1/8 to 1/4 inch adaptor.

REVIEW OF THE ALIENWARE OZMA 7 HEADPHONES:
Alienwares Ozma 7 headphones provide studio reference quality sound in a compact foldable design. The result of a partnership with Ultrasone, these headphones sport the Alienware logo on each earpiece and feature the same color scheme as the companys computer systems.

The Ozma 7 is the Ultrasones HFI-700. The Ozma 7 headphones feature a more extended bass response than the now-discontinued Ultrasone HFI 650s -- down to 10Hz, compared with 15Hz previously. Since the low range of human hearing is typically 20Hz, this means youll hear all the bass response your source material has to offer. The top end extends up to 25kHz, beyond the usual 20kHz high range of human hearing.

Specifications are nice, but if they were the only thing that mattered, all headphones would have an extended frequency range and sound alike. What really sets the Ozma 7 design apart is its ability to create a wide and deep aural landscape.

One of Ultrasones exclusive technologies is S-Logic Natural Surround Sound. Its not surround sound in the typical sense what the technology does is create a more dimensional signal based on a stereo source. Its the same mix, only bigger. Everything sounds more natural in this design, whether the application is recording, monitoring, or gaming.

One of the secrets is decentralized driver positioning. Where the majority of headphones focus on the inner ear, drivers in the S-Logic design are positioned to reflect in different directions from the surface of the outer ear before they enter the auditory canal. There is no artificially induced echo, processing or delay involved in this design. Its just a more accurate simulation of the way we hear sounds in the real world. Human hearing is not strictly left and right. Sounds arrive at different angles, and the outer ear helps corral them to create our naturally perceived soundfield.

The Ozma 7 headphones are also designed to produce the same apparent loudness as other designs at up to 3-4 dB lower output. With a sound pressure level of 94 dB (not a recommended listening level), the Ozma 7 design permits listening at volumes that might be uncomfortable with other headphones. Plus, the Ozma 7 uses MU Metal shields to dramatically reduce LE (Low Frequency) radiation compared with conventional designs that permit a much higher level of radiation into the head.

Physically, the Ozma 7 headphones are flexible and durable. They can be compactly folded up for transportation (a bag is included), or for DJ monitoring with one ear. Theres one chord securely attached to the left earphone with flexible heavy duty rubber, and an included -in phone jack screws onto the stereo style phono plug. The chord is nearly 10 feet long, which provides plenty of mobility while the headphones are being worn. Ive had a couple of other headphones that stopped working during the past three years. No matter how careful you are, desk chairs will roll over the chord, and people will trample on it or walk too far from the plug. The similarly designed HFI 650 headphones I use have held up well to that kind of abuse, and Id expect the Ozma 7 design to be just as hardy.

The ear cups are a closed-back design that envelops the ear and does a good job of isolating the listener from outside noise. Louder ambient sounds such as a ringing phone nearby will still get through, but at greatly reduced volume that doesnt distract from the listening experience. Finally, they are comfortable. Some closed-back designs make you feel like your heads been in a vice grip after long periods of wear. The Ozma 7 have a lightweight (9 oz.)carriage with plush foam ear covers, and the design distributes the pressure points well. They can be worn without discomfort for several hours at a stretch.
