The material combination of soft-touch lacquer and glossy accents gives the Performance earcups a casual elegance and is immediate proof of the precise workmanship. The Performance 840 impresses with agile bass and comes with a completely black earcup composition. The earcups on these headphones come in an elegant colour combination of black and gunmetal.
Whether for small ears or large ones, Ultrasone never fails to deliver when it comes to wear-comfort. The comfort aspect was a priority when the spacious inner cups of the Performance series were being constructed. After all, professionals and music enthusiasts alike do not want to be irritated by the fit of the headphones, but want to forget that they are there altogether. The high-quality protein-leather ear pads contain memory-foam and will adjust themselves to fit your head shape snugly. This means they are comfortable and offer best possible insulation against external noise. A perfectly fitting, comfortable headband completes the excellent wear characteristics. During the development phase of the Performance series, the metal headband was designed to snugly fit each and every individual head shape.
The Performance 840 model come with detachable cables. The bayonet connector means you can quickly change to the cable of your choice.
