ULTRASONE Saphire in-ear headphones: the in-ear reference, handmade in Bavaria
Ultrasone love music – and a challenge: When developing the Saphire, they adhered to the same standards concerning unadulterated sonic fidelity established with their headband models from the manufacture. The Saphire accumulates their years of expertise in designing outstanding headphones, realizing the unique signature sound of ULTRASONE in compact in-ear form. With six drivers per side, the Saphire offers an unmatched in-ear experience, defining the benchmark in its category. It is manufactured by hand exclusively in their workshop at Gut Raucherberg in Bavaria, Germany.
Many manufacturers try to counterbalance the defects in detail and resolution when using individual dynamic drivers by employing one or two additional balanced armature drivers (BA). At ULTRASONE, they decided to take an entirely different approach: by combining six BA and electrostatic drivers across four ways, the Saphire achieves a uniquely detailed sonic image across the whole frequency spectrum. Deep, concise basses through two BA drivers in the low frequencies, fine mids and highs with one BA driver for each the mid and high spectrum, and two electrostatic drivers highlighting super-high frequencies: there is no compromise when it comes to sound with the Saphire.
Creed of quality
At ULTRASONE they are proud of their Bavarian manufacture. From first drafts to final assembly: the Saphire is completely designed and built in the manufacture. The elegant housing made from massive aluminium is flanked by chrome emblems bearing the ULTRASONE logo. They believe in the durability of their products, which is why they grant 5 of years warranty for the Saphire. It comes with high-quality cables for both balanced and unbalanced operation with gold-plated 2-pin jacks. With a number of silicone ear pieces and high-quality Comply™ Foam tips, the Saphire can be adjusted to personal preferences. For cleaning and transport, the scope of delivery encompasses a microfibre cloth, a cleaning tool and a sturdy case.
