„In addition to my love for music, within the last few years emerging as an up and coming producer; listening to to new projects, music for a tour or checking Mixes and Masters prepping for releases, I require a serious set of “Cans”! Ultrasone headphones for me are the perfect match…”

„… These headphones are balanced representing all sonic aspects of the music with equal proportions of Mids/Hi`s/Low`s, so I can make the best decisions about the music chosen for audience to embrace. I use the PRO 900 model for the studio and they are perfect and so clear and freat for finding a great sound in the studio while tracking. Outside the studio, for checking mixes, and studying music for different shows, I love Edition 8 S-Logic (Ruthenium).“

Ulysses graduated with a Bachelors of Music degree in Jazz Studies from The Juilliard School in 2006. He has toured extensively in 7 of the 8 continents with many world- class musicians such as Kurt Elling, Count Basie Orchestra, Terence Blanchard, Dianne Reeves, and many others.
