Ultrasone proline 750 the good news and the bad news.

the bad news

unfortunately my wife suffered a back injury on saturday which resulted in me calling an ambulance. she's at home now, but in alot of discomfort, so i won't being going to london.

the good news

My ultrasone's have arrive and i can now spend a bit of time with them.
literally i've had 5 minutes with them, and of course they are a new listening experience, and so i'll reserve full judgement for later.

unlike any headphones i've had, i understand why you run to burn these in, because although the sound is impressive, I'm not fully convinced.....yet.

first impressions, they are very big, have alot of extras (i'll show you later) but apart for the tardiness on behalf of iheadphones, I'm very pleased.

forgive me for not giving you the full works yet, i've taken lots of pictures, but because i have an imac the fuji camera i have doesn't run on my platform.

for any apple people out there, it's a os x 10.4.8 but the deriver software only goes upto 10.3.8

I'm buying a card reader and hopefully soon i'll have a shed load of pictures and of course the best report, that i can write. stay tuned.

Well, we always like to get the bad news out of the way first, captian, so please pass along my best to the mrs.!

And like the unfortunate injury to your wife, the 750s straight out of the box can be bad news indeed. However, the good news is that it's nothing that a good 200 hour run-in under their headbands won't fix.

So with a little luck, both will be on the mend and coming back on-song in no time!

Regarding your camera, go to the Fuji website and see if there is a driver-update to download there for your os x 10.4.8.

Best, Dex

Do you have iPhoto? You shouldn't even need a specific driver with that. Just a memory card reader.

how do you guys upload those massive images?? please tell.

Use Imageshack.us

Upload the image, and then copy the "Hotlink for forums" link into your post here. And better let imagesahck resize it to 800x600 max (you can see the option on their page) , so that people can view it properly here.

before i answer, consider that everybody says let them burn in for a week and i've had them for a few hours!

i've just finished listening to Green Day's "when i come around", and to be honest the treble is a little on the harsh side, but man, is it clear!

The Soundgarden's "black whole sun" , i've never heard it like that before.

the bass warmed up very quickly, but i feel as though i'm waiting for the mid and treble to settle in a bit. but i was told a week so i shouldn't moan.

the only negative so far is the size (not really a bad point) it's probably because i've never owned headphones this big.

with my 'liddle' ipod shuffle, they're just as impressive, but they don't reach the kinds of volumes i enjoy with say the senn's hd212 pros or the grado 125's.

If anyone is in the market, stop reading and hand your credit card details over to the nearest merchant, right now! just do it!

forgive me, my wife has just rang my mobile from upstairs , gotta run.

Don't use the image option of the forum. Just paste the link as it is in your post. Then it works^^

The burn-in journey is long and arduous, captian, but well worth the wait. Hang in there!

DAY 2

these are getting better and better. i would deffinately reccomend them over the grado 125's for ............ everything really but especially for ROCK lovers.

anyway i've been listening to my BEST OF BOND ALBUM, james bond that is, not those women with violins, and AH HA's 'living daylights' i promise you there are subtle bass lines that i've never heard before.

stop thinking, and just buy them!
