Ultrasone Inc., distributor for German headphone manufacturer Ultrasone AG, introduces a new portable headphone called Zino. Designed for use with iPods, MP3 players and other portable music players, Ultrasone's Zino features the company's patented S-Logic(TM) and ULE(TM) safe listening technologies in an ultra-mobile design.
Ultrasone has given the Zino a sleek, modern look with gunmetal black, brushed aluminum ear cups and silver colored diamond-cut aluminum nameplates. Even though the Zino was designed for mobile applications, it features two powerful 40mm gold plated drivers, which most commonly are found in full-sized studio headphones. The Zino's foldable design allows for easy storage and safe transportation in the included hard carrying case.
Despite its small size, the Zino utilizes Ultrasone's patented S-Logic(TM) technology. Rather than directing the sound 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%.
Additionally, the Zino features MU-Metal shielding (ULE technology) that reduces the amount of radiation directed to the listener by up to 98%, as compared to conventional headphones.
