Ultrasone 2500 pro vs Ultrasone 2200 ule

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm a basshead and i like a deep bass as making to say only "wow".  Of course i need the other rest of the sound too. I found out that only to HPs can provide the best bass its the beyer 990 and ultrasone.


So after decisions between the beyer 990 pro and ultrasone and reading many reviews here on the head-fi i come to that maybe ultrasone will make me happy with my music ( i listening to rap, hiphop, rnb, pop and some electronic music ).


But listening to all kind of music and it can be a not quality music. Some people saying the ultrasone 2500 is fussy about the quality of the source material as the 2200 is not.


So I'm just wondering how the sound compares to each other?

 

And is its true that the treble of ultrasone is harsh and mettalic?

why don't go for HFi series? try out 580,680,780 (on proper burnt-in) as Hfi Series has way better bass from quality and quantity and I believe it will suit your musical preferences.

 

 

*note Ultrasone needs 300 hrs of burn-in process, out of the box feels like you want to throw it out off the window

True to some extent on the Pro 750/900. Not if you get the Pro 900 and KeeS mod it and S-logic works good with your ears. Both are VERY revealing on source and recordings they won´t try to smoothen anything out.  If you are in the laid back school that rather have dips then flatness these are not for you. Pro 900 on the DAC19 is like putting a warm, soft blanket on your head. On the Keces for example it does show off it´s fast attack and short decay a bit better which much better PRaT as a result. It goes from slightly bassy to slightly trebly. True chameleonts that´s for sure

 

As for 300h burnin well that is on your first Ultrasone I believe... Once you get used to the presentation it goes much much smoother. Pro 900 sounded quite acceptable straight away compared to the 750 which played a million tricks on me until it settled.

the ultrasone PRO series certainly had much better detail, spaciousness, naturalness, and the bass can certainly go deeper than the hfi series and separate very well with other frequency..

 

BUT you should consider also that the Ultrasone PRO series with the titanium driver are very sensitive to the audio signal supplied into it.. bad source n synergy can make the ultrasone unlistenable.. until now i can barely made my Ultrasone Pro 2500 sound good out of ANY mp3 player i plug into it,, desktop setup are neccessary and not all amp can sound good in my ultrasone..

 

so if you want ultrasone that sound "safe" and good out of almost any system you can choose the hfi 2200.. but if you already have appropriate setup or want to take a little time (& money) to more serious setup you can try the ultrasone pro 2500..

Hfi-2200 is probably not nearly as detailed, but very natural sounding. It won't sound good straight out of most mp3 players due to 70 ohm impedance. If you have an amp and don't mind the missing microdetails and speed, you may like the hfi-2200.

I did try old line up for Pro Line 550 and Pro line 2500 (ALO Y shaped recabled) which is open type cans, I was bass lover - above two PL cans won't satisfy my lust of bass ;-) - then I found HFI 680 which is (for me) has excellent amount of bass (tight & deep).
