Ultrasone Zino headphones

Ultrasone's Zino headphones strike the perfect middle-ground of performance, style, and convenience for earbud-eschewing connoisseurs of portable audio.

The Zinos borrow heavily from their previous effort, the Ultrasone iCans. Fortunately, the Zinos do well to steer clear of the cheeky name and conspicuous white and chrome looks of the iCans, opting instead for a gunmetal gray finish with a black headband and cable. The sound, however, is still unmistakably Ultrasone--which is a very good thing.

Part of the Zino's comfort can be attributed to the headphone band's slightly squared-off shape (a change from the original iCans design), but what seals the deal are the 1/4-inch thick soft foam pads on each earpiece, covered in a silky-smooth nylon mesh.

The Zino's sides are each hinged at the headband to that the earpieces fold inwards like a pair of sunglasses. It's hard to compete against a pair of earbuds that fit inside your fist, but the Zino's collapsible design will at least fit in your pocket.

The hardshell case included with the Ultrasone Zino reminds us of a fanny pack and adds an unnecessary amount of bulk to an otherwise beautiful and compact pair of headphones.
