 I'll second the other comments: The SigDJ/SigPro (Ultrasone Edition 9 without the fancy metal) has a congested presentation and some harshness which the Z7 doesn't. It sounded to me like a more polite Denon D5000.The ED8s were YMMV depending on the pair you got. Mine sounded awful, even if the deeper pads fixed the congestion of the ED9s, the Z7s are far better in that regard with their angled drivers.  You wont notice it so much IMO. It is further down in the range that...
Did you push the plug all the way in? Sometimes it is possible for a huge bass drop-off to be the result of a bad connection.
I reckon it was good of them to come out with an entire kit. That is how it is presented in the stores. We're still going to nit-pick though! It's what we do! 
At the start they can get pretty long. The buying queue gets VERY long if either anything interesting is released and due to the numerous show specials for which they only have limited stock.
 They are standard 3.5mm plugs, but the cable has loose sleeve which is threaded so they can be screwed onto the cups.  I think the scale of that graph makes it look worse than it would if it were on Tyll's usual scale I think. Most dynamics that measure fairly flat right down to 20 Hz end up having rising distortion though, so I don't think it is that big a deal. However, the mid-bass is very fast and tight. Totally opposite of most closed non-planar dynamics that have a...
After lunch on Friday (whenever or wherever that ends up being) I will probably go to e-earphone.   Saturday and Sunday: We go to the show just before opening and we are there all day usually. When the show closes we try and decide what we're going to do for dinner.  Anyone is welcome to join.
Twinkle: I recommend, more so than computer-based re-sampling, buying an old PCM63 or AD1865-based DAC and using that with your CDs. No need for anything fancy, but you'll get the good sound you were looking for.  
What is awful about them? Impedance and phase are flat, decay is very fast where it matters. FR is a bit of a head-scratcher -- I wish that slight dip at 400-500 Hz was further back in the mid-bass for preference, as then it might sound a bit more like the LCD-XCs, which are about spot-on tonality wise for me.
The issue with the mids i'm going to speculate have to do with reflections behind the pads, given how successful my sponge experiment has been so far.   Before I forget: Cable pinouts:   For the plugs that go into the cups: Tip = positive; Ring = negative. Sleeve = not connected (or possibly only to the shield on one end). The balanced cables are exactly the same on both ends (ignoring where any shield might be connected). has graphs up:
