Ultrasone Pro 900 Appreciation Thread - Page 106

post #1576 of 5811

Hey guys,

 

I'm still really new to all this stuff so I decided to ask here

 

If I have the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium, will buying a DAC such as the fiio e7 improve my sound?

 

Also, will the fiio e9 have enough power to drive the Ultrasone Pro 900's?

Do the 900s sound ok or nice while listening to some Rock n Roll?

The E7 is for those who do not have a DAC or decent soundcard. In your case the E7 won't really make much of a difference. The E9 was built to power headphones far more power hungry than the not at all power hungry PRO 900's... so yes it has more than enough power and then some.

The SR80 was not airy at all, and the Senn was the airiest headphone I've heard. I'm trying to find something with the Airyness of the Senn and its angled drivers but tighter bass and more of a fun sound.

I went ahead and ordered the 2900, I'll post up some impressions if anyone is interested.



when im tried the senn i find that they have a big sound stage but sound a little muddy that makes it sound not too airy "for me".. well maybe i heard them with a wrong setup,, i even think that senn hd 558 has airier sound than 598.. :P

 

waiting for your pro 2900 impression then..

For full sized headphones I think Ultrasone's are actually pretty good for portability :P

 

edit: although not the open ones so much :|

:p. so far I find my K81s better than everything I have tried, the AD900 is about equal, lets hope the Ultrasones will be able to dethrone the $50 monster in my collection.

The Ultrasones will be here some time next week. :) I'm taking suggestions for songs to use in my mini review, I'm just starting to get into techno, trance, and the like. I'm a metalhead at heart black, death, drone, doom, and folk.

These make great demo tracks for the PRO 900:

 

post #1587 of 5811

These are the songs I put on a demo CD that I use with new headphones:

 

The Crystal Method - Name Of the Game

Massive Attack - Protection

Röyksopp - Eple

Rage Against the Machine - Born Of A Broken Man

Infected Mushroom - Poquito Mas

Feed Me - Blood Red

The Flashbulb - Autumn Insomnia Session

Oasis - She's Electric

Netsky - Secret Agent

Green Day - All the Time

Outkast - B.O.B.

Rise Against - Collapse (Post Amerika)

Pendulum - Ransom

Ellie Goulding - Lights (Bassnectar Remix)

Pendulum - Showdown

Silverchair - Freak

B-Complex - Three Dots

Rage Against the Machine - Take the Power Back

 

You should make your own one of songs that you enjoy, so that you know how they really sound, then test headphones with them :).

post #1588 of 5811

Yeah I already have a few, I use

Bathory - Death and Ressurection of a Northern Son to test speed

and Electric Wizard - Mind Transferal to test out the bass quantity

and Darkthrone - Those Treasures Will Never Befall You to test how well they do with growled vocals.

Thanks for the recommendations guys, I'll try to use a couple of them.

i just have to say... i had the pro 900's, got the blue dragon cable, thought that was the end-all-be-all, a month later got denon d7000's, and had listed the pro 900's on ebay... since then, while i dearly love the d7k's, i've listed, ended, listed, and ended again the auction for the pro 900's... i just can't part with them! despite the smaller soundstage, scooped, metallic, sound, and (relative!) uncomfortableness... they still end up on my head at least a few times a day! for bass-heavy EDM, dubstep, etc... where mastering is poor, soundstage is rather irrelevant, and what you want is a bright, fun, powerful, sound with absolutely earth-shattering, vision-blurring bass... the pro 900's + BD cable + e7/e9 just make me smile. a lot.

I personally think the pro 900s take some time to get used to. You can't listen to them right away and decide you don't like them. I'm at about 300+ hours now and they take some time to get used to. I am starting to get into the sound signature, and like above find myself smiling.
