There's Something About Ultrasone… - Page 387

post #5791 of 5935

I never would have believed it but I am the proud owner of a new pair of Edition 8 limiteds.  A guess there really is "something about Ultrasone....."

They are very special yes. ED 10 next?

post #5793 of 5935

I don't know yet.  One window of opportunity and then they are gone.  So, first hear impressions and hear for yourself at a meet, then jump quick or forever hold your peace/or piece.

No.  Not yet.  So far, I like everything pretty much the way it is with the PRO2500.  : )

I would never pay more than $500 for them.

Lol if you ever try to haggle such a price with an Ultrasone rep at a meet, be sure to record the video smily_headphones1.gif.

Just got my PRO 2500 back from ZXAC (Zombie_X) with the Nucleotide re-cable, and they sound much better versus the stock cable.  Want to a/b the Nucleotide PRO 2500 versus the Nucleotide DT880/600.  : )

Had the same problem, solution: Easy! Cut the sticky part of a few post-it notes off into small strips and place them around the perimeter where the pads lock in. Totally reversible, acoustically invisible, and keeps em on. Just needs a little more thickness & friction than the metal provides.

 

Oddly, had this prob with the 750's but haven't needed to do anything to my 900's.

 

It's a fact with Usones that you have to have them rotated into just the right position so it's necessary to address this design flaw or your pads fly off.

I personally like the Ultrasone headphones such as the ED9, but I feel they are kind of overpriced for the performance you get. Just my opinion so don't rip my head off.

I've been listening to the Pro 2900 for a few days now. My impressions:

Sounds like fine, stone cold German efficiency to me, in the advice to cancel the order from Germany and order from the U.S.  : )

post #5805 of 5935

hey guys, not sure if this thread is still live, but...


If I were to listen mainly from my PC with an average at best sound card, and also my iPhone 3G, would I be better off getting the HFI 2200's or the PRO 2500's?

And also if I were to buy the E9 and E7 Fiio amps, which would be better?

 

Thanks.

 

Also, how do they compare to the Sennheiser HD650's?
