Goodbye cable, hello Bluetooth! Ultrasone is using the SIRIUS aptX®
Bluetooth adapter to transform conventional headphones into Bluetooth
Wielenbach, 18. July 2017 – From classic headphones to Bluetooth headphones in
next to no time: all thanks to the SIRIUS from Ultrasone. This ultra compact
Bluetooth adapter can be simply attached to a model of your choice from the
Ultrasone Performance headphone series, turning them into a wireless Bluetooth
model. And thanks to an aptX® codec, audio transmission is simply the best. Enjoy
music for up to 12 hours at a time. The SIRIUS also turns Performance headphones
into a headset, as a microphone is integrated into the compact housing.
Ultrasone Performance headphones go wireless
The Performance series is Ultrasone’s strong range of closed dynamic all-round
headphones: whether for audiophile music enjoyment, gaming, computer use or as
headphones for on the go – the Performance models are perfect for the most varied
of applications. Until now, listeners have been bound by a cable. But the Ultrasone
SIRIUS is setting them free!

Design perfectly suited to the Performance series
The Ultrasone SIRIUS is an ultra-compact Bluetooth adapter that was developed
specifically for the Ultrasone Performance series of headphones. Its curved design is
perfectly adapted to the shape of the headphones and can thus be integrated
seamlessly. At just 12 grams, it is also hardly noticeable. Thanks to a bayonet
fastening, the cable can be simply removed and the SIRIUS attached, quickly
transforming the wired headphones into a Bluetooth model.
Best wireless audio transmission thanks to aptX® Bluetooth
The Ultrasone SIRIUS uses a particularly high-resolution aptX® Bluetooth codec to
transmit audio wirelessly from smartphones, tablets, notebooks, computers and hi-fi
systems. This ensures that the audio material is of the highest possible quality when
it reaches the headphones. In addition to the Bluetooth module, the SIRIUS also
contains a powerful amplifier that provides excellent sound reproduction – just as if
the SIRIUS were connected to a high-quality headphone amplifier.
An integrated microphone turns headphones into a headset
Thanks to the integrated microphone, Ultrasone Performance headphones will be
transformed when combined with the SIRIUS – and can therefore be used much
more flexibly: to make calls on a smartphone, to take part in video conferences on a
computer or notebook, or as wireless gaming headphones.
Simple operation and volume control
There are three buttons on the side of the SIRIUS: the volume can be flexibly
adjusted using the rocker. At the very highest level, listeners can experience the
impressive power of the integrated amplifier. The SIRIUS also has a play/pause
button that can be used to start and stop the music playing on the connected device.
Powerful rechargeable battery for up to 12 hours of continuous musical
The Ultrasone SIRIUS has a powerful rechargeable battery: listeners can enjoy
music for up to 12 hours at a time. Thus even long train and plane journeys will not
be a problem. Music lovers can be as far as 20 meters away from the Bluetooth
source. Standby mode lasts up to 160 hours. It takes around one hour to fully charge
the SIRIUS. For this, a compact mains adapter is included in the delivery.
Ultrasone SIRIUS: compatibility and availability
The Ultrasone SIRIUS was developed exclusively for headphone models from the
Ultrasone Performance series. It is compatible with all models from the Performance
820, to the Performance 840 and Performance 860, right through to the Performance
880. The SIRIUS will be available at specialist retailers from August.

Ultrasone – THE headphone company
Since its founding in 1991, Ultrasone AG – one of the leading developers and manufacturers of
headphones – has established an excellent reputation amongst audiophile listeners around the
world. Ultrasone headphones are used in both the professional audio sector by high-profile DJs
and renowned recording studios, as well as by hi-fi enthusiasts in over 50 countries. The exclusively
crafted models, which are handmade in Germany, enjoy an excellent reputation too. For several years
now, owners of MP3 players and smartphones have also been able to enjoy Ultrasone audio quality
through portable headphones. The company, situated on the banks of Lake Starnberg, holds more
than 60 patents; a special feature of Ultrasone models is the patented S-Logic technology which uses
a decentralised positioning of transducers to provide natural surround sound, whilst also protecting the
human ear. A further milestone in the history of Ultrasone came in 1997 with the development of ULE
shielding, which reduces the headphone wearer’s exposure to electromagnetic radiation by up to 98%.
