Sadly, the UltraPhones are by order from the builder (drummer Gordy Knudtson) and not stocked anywhere. It's a bit of a leap of faith I suppose, Gordy relies on word of mouth between pros, and that word is always good.
Ideally, yes, Koalas should audition the phones. But if not thrilled with any, guive the UltraPhones a try. I've been thrilled with them for years, and always use them on stage and in the studio.
