People looking strange at you on the train..that's just because they think you're an asocial person wearing these big hps in public. The train probably produces more noise than the leakage of the hp (depending on the volume ofcourse )
Oh and don't worry, you can crack those 750's up real loud and they stay cool

I know that you drive by car. I commute 3 hours daily by train. Trains these day are really deas quiet. They have very good noice isolation and also at 7.30 people are still sleepy and nobody is speaking.

I also get irritated by travelers on trains using HP's with a lot of leakage. I hate the HP's coming with the nokia's. They are the worsed. Even worse, it's becoming a habbit to listen to music using the mobile phone speakers . The 750's are realy bad in this department and I will not use them as I get strange looks from people miles away. And I'm not listening that loud as I want to take care of my ears drums. Luckely I have my shure 500's I do not hear anything and nobody hears me...I'm in my own cocoon....

750's are great at home or terras as long as my wife is not around .

Haha! Never heard my bf complain but they do leak a bit yeah.
I walk my way up to work. Use the car but not that much. I used to go by train or bus like 2 and half years ago. Back then I used the V700 and they leaked as well. Never had any complains though. Well, strange looks yeah
Using mobile phones is really enoying indeed! Do they actually do that on train?? Now that is asocial! If so I'm glad I don't use public transport anymore. Where do you love if you have to travel so long to get to work? That must be quite a hassle.

The Dynamat mod I published for the PL-650 stops ALL leakage and would work equally well for the PL-750.

Been thinking about picking up a 4 foot cord from Revelation Audio- def. worth the 200 bucks? I love the sound of the 2500s- probably my fav. phone to date. However on just one recording (and it maybe the recording, Plant & Krauss) the highs sound distorted. Wondering how much the cord would do for something like this?

The (interchangeable) RAL/Proline re-cable--well worth $199 for the 2m length, IMHO--will help extend, smooth and add detail to the highs. However these benefits lend themselves to the sound of the Proline's drivers. The re-cable will not correct deficiencies in the source recording.

I really enjoyed my RAL/Proline 750: more so than the RAL/2500; but less so than the RAL/K701. Ultimately, I sold the RAL/PL750 and kept the RAL/K701.

Maybe a stupid question but is it a mp3 file? If so, you might want to use MP3gain in order to get rid of the distortion.
I don't think the cord will solve your distortion problem cause I do believe it's in the recording and not the "fault" of the hp. Can you listen to that same song with a different hp to make sure whether the flaw is in the recording ot not? Or perhaps with speakers?

I'm considering recabeling my Silver Dragon that I currently use with my Sennheiser 650's to fit the PL 750's. I'm not so much interested in te Sennheiser 650's anymore (great phones, but I aquired a Proline taste) and consider to sell them. Would the Silver Dragon be a good match with the 750's? I'm looking for less metalic highs.

I tried it (nothing else) on my 750 and it killed all the bass -- I had to remove it.

Yes, I would agree the guilt most likely resides with the MP3 download but I thought since I had heard that Ultrasones have been accused of harsh highs I would throw that out there. The only other place I have heard the recording so far is in my car with a stock system and the harshness was not noticeable, but I am sure that is simply due to the less critical environment. Either way i am very happy with the HPs- like I said it is just that one recording so I am sure its just a matter of shelling out some more $ for the actual CD.

Are your 750's completely burned in?

I gave them about 120 hours of burn-in time, they sound good but a bit to pronounced in the highs for my taste. Should i give them more burn in time?

I felt the exact same thing. Give it more hours to see.

My highs smoothened out after at least 250hrs of burn-in. After that I just didn't pay conscious attention to whether they changed even more after that or not.
But many reported here that the hp really is completely settled at 350-400 hrs of burn-in. You still have a long way to go Just give them more time and than decide whether you still want to recable or not.
I do believe Pataburd was real excited with his recables 750 though. Can't remember what recable he used but it can be found in this thread. I'm too lazy to search for you now

Edit: I heard a 750 at the VAD last sunday with only 8 hrs on them. They sounded awefull! The highs were so pearcing it drove my ears nuts.
