Ultrasone HFI-580

PC Magazine
23 December 2009
  • Conclusion: With the HFI-580, Ultrasone promises integrated surround sound. All I heard was a lovely sound signature that seemed suspiciously like stereo.
  • Pros: Fine for all types of music, particularly genres with deeper bass. Smooth low-end. Adds a twinge of brightness to an otherwise flat response. Solidly constructed.
  • Cons: Surround-sound effect sounds a lot like stereo. Large and bulky.

Ultrasone HFI

CNET
13 July 2009
  • Summary: The Ultrasone HFI-680 headphones' abundant bass power, forgiving treble, and isolation from external noise should make these an attractive choice for some buyers.
  • Pros: Ultrasone's nicely built, full-size, closed-back headphones hush outside noise; includes 10-foot-long cable, soft carry bag; sounds swell on iPod.
  • Cons: Overly bassy sound.

Ultrasone HFI-580 Review

Digitaltrends
9 June 2008
  • Conclusion: The Ultrasone HFI-580’s are impressively accurate-sounding for closed-backed headphones. We like the streamlined design compared with the bulkier Sennheiser HD280 Pros , though the latter are more comfortable. We can’t help but wish for a little more low bass power and a coiled telephone-style cord, but we highly recommend the HFI580s if you need very fine detailed mids, upper bass, and highs.
  • Pros: Veyr lively and wide sound; attractive design; earcups fold into headband
  • Cons: Extreme deep bass could use some extra power; headband padding is hard

Ultrasone HFI-580

  • Excerpt: Please your ears with the Ultrasone HFI-580 headphones which are comfortable to wear and sound good. German headphone maker Ultrasone’s HFI-580s block out noise without plugging up your ear canals or using active cancellation circuitry. The S-Logic “natural surround” technology and radiation shielding may seem gimmicky, but these great-sounding cans give our trusty Sennheiser HD280 Pro’s a serious run for their money.
  • Pros: Veyr lively and wide sound; attractive design; earcups fold into headband
  • Cons: Extreme deep bass could use some extra power; headband padding is hard

  • Summary: HFI-580 обладают невероятно открытым, чистым и четким звучанием. Они создают легкие, но точные ритмические структуры, а мощные басы найдут немало горячих приверженцев. А здесь мы можем наблюдать кое-что любопытное. Выбор между открытыми и закрытыми наушниками обычно очевиден: открытые лучше звучат, тогда как закрытые не мешают окружающим.

  • Excerpt: Wie bei den meisten geschlossenen Modellen ist auch das Klangbild des Ultrasone eher dunkel getönt. Durch seine niedrige Impedanz (32 Ohm) könnte er grundsätzlich auch am iPod betrieben werden: Das einzige Problem wäre dann das drei Meter lange Kabel. Insgesamt verfügt der HFI 580 über einen mächtigen und detaillierten Bass, der vielen Trägern der jungen Generation zusagen wird. Wir vergeben 4 von 5 Sternen.
  • Pros: Erstklassige Verarbeitung, Stylishes Design, Leicht zu verstauen, Basslastiges Klangbild, Kopfhörer verfügt über Surround-Sound
  • Cons: Kein ausgewogenes Klangbild, Drückt an den Ohren, Mikrofon fehlt, Fernbedienung nicht vorhanden, Keine Farbauswahl verfügbar

  • Excerpt: W katalogu nie znajdziemy modeli przeznaczonych do współpracy z telefonami komórkowymi ani konsolami do gier. Są tylko duże, poważne nauszniki bez mikrofonów, pilotów czy innych gadżetów. Oferta składa się z trzech głównych serii: HFI, PRO i DJ. Do tego dochodzą różne edycje specjalne i limitowane w cenach, które uderzą nawet posiadaczy flagowych Beyerów i Sennheiserów.
