A German hifi magazine rates the ED9 below the GS-1000 (priced at 1/3 less).
Mulvelin (spelling?) said that so far the ED9 doesn't have that extra bit of sizzle (or something like that) that the tops cans have, and he's owned a good amount of those.
Way too many inconsistencies for me to assume that all other headphones are a mute point and Ultrasones get it all right. I too think the HE-90, O2 have that electrostat sound which is amazing in some areas, but artificial sounding in other areas. But they are up with the top headphones (the HE-90 to me is the top if broken down into parts) and excel above any dynamics in certain areas.
|Their signature lacks the eccentricities of the other top cans, just good clean sound.|
I will always be a little skeptical of anyone listening to an Ultrasone for a short amount of time and coming any real conclusions about them. They sound so different with some tracks and so special with others. It really is in the sound mix where it works or it doesn't with the Ultrasones.
