Amazon sells them under they're own name (so from Amazon, no other 3rd, party) for $327. I know when a deal sounds too good to be true but it's Amazon selling them so I would assume they were real. Has anyone else here bought these from Amazon, from Amazon??? Are they real or fake? or are there any differences form the ones on Amazon from the ones I'd get directly from Ultrasone? I'd appreciate some input from those who know because all I've found myself through extensive looking through forums was just more unanswered questions the same as mine. Here's the link to the site --> http://www.amazon.com/Ultrasone-PRO-900-Professional-Headphones/dp/B001F00F0E/ref=pd_cp_MI_0 

 

Let me know what you know! Thanks L3000.gif

I actually bought my pair last year during Black Friday on Amazon for roughly the same price. They've been good to me!

Nice

 

Also don't know if I shared this with you guys or not but, a lot of ppl suggest the cMoy as an alternative to the E11 and well I have em both and that suggestion is a double edged sword

 

here's what you need to know

 

E11 More Aggressive bass , a little dark hiss's a little transient highs

cMoy Mellower bass, a little more detail Smoother highs and a tad bit more forward mids

 

also the cMoy is a little colored and the E11 is not as colored [it's not neutral as some say it is, the darkness and warmth in the Lows take away a little brightness in the highs]

Hey guys

 

I'm considering getting the pro 900, mostly because I'm a basshead and they seem great, however I was worried that the mids would be too recessed for me. Because of that, I was gonna get the denon pads and do the kees mod which is said to improve the mids, but I didn't really understand how to do the Kees mod.

 

here's think I read: http://www.head-fi.org/t/396267/how-bright-is-an-ultrasone-pro-900/60

 

I understood the first part where he covered three holes with electrical tape, but I didn't understand the rest of it, could someone please explain it to me? Do you think the kees mod fixes the midrange, or will it still be recessed?

I find the PA2V2 to match better with the Pro 900 rather than the E11, which doesn't have as much driving power.

No ... do not cover the three holes ... go to post # 70 of the thread.

1. attach self-adhesive felt disc on middle hole of baffle plate

2. remove baffle plate & attach self-adhesive disc to inside of cup, away from the driver

3. insert cotton cosmetic pad in cup.

 

haven't heard the modded 900s myself.

Got my Pro 900s in today and holy hell these are amazing! Music has new life with these compared to the Beats I was using. Can't wait to see how they sound with an amp. Overall very very pleased with these!

Sadly the list of cans that can be associated with that statement in comparision to beats is a long one <3

 

Non the less nice to see you like it, btw what's the cost of a fully modded pro 900? Is any one selling here on head fi

The kee's mod kind of helps midrange, but I feel like it does that by toning down the bass, and make the treble a little less sharp. J$ pads are well worth the money, if you are already going the pro900 route. they make a much larger difference than the kee's mod in my opinon. I haven't heard any headphones in the same price category, but the pro900's even with kees and J$ mod, are still not even close to balanced. the mids are still significantly recessed, making rock not that enjoyable relatively to edm. but the bass is great. I think proper amping helps the midrange as well, out of an e17/ipod the mids pale in comparison to out of a schiit lyr/bifrost, but i'm sure anyone could have told you that.

I haven't heard the denon d2k, but perhaps find one of those if you can. I think the reactions towards those are much less bipolar than the pro900's.

and also, the cost of the kees mod is about 5$... if thats what you mean by fully modded

Damn guys.
I have to share this, although you probably don't share this particular issue that I just "figured out".

Ever since I got these headphones I have always heard a kind of imbalance, especially in the very low frequencies. I heard the bass a lot louder in my left cup, which got me worried that the right cup might be defect. I had over 6 months always assumed it was my amplifier that caused this particular issue, but upon further investigation with other amps & headphones I found that it sounded kind of the same regarding the imbalance in the lower frequencies,. Tonight I just messed around with the ear pads A LOT, since my ear pads are not completely uniform, (which some here on head-fi reported they had circular ear pads). One part is thicker than the opposite, and I have always had the "thicker" part facing my back on both ear cups.

So here is the solution to my particular problem that I've had ever since I got these headphones:
Have the thicker part of the left ear cup facing your neck, while the thicker part of the right ear cup faces your face. This fixes my problem, and I get perfect volume balance. I guess this is how S-Logic works with my ears, but if you've had this particular issue that I described; I suggest you just try this out.

That S-Logic sound pretty amazing! I mean WOW 6 month learning curve... good job Ultrasone <3, although in reality I have that issue with my XB 700's as well, keep in mind that the drivers respond at different level's as well [not enough that you should notice] but combine that with an wide range of other varibles and yea you might notice a differance, for me when I get a Cold or my Sinus are enflamed then I really notice a differeance :/ [but that's my body not the headphones] Because my [more bass on one ear] than the other issue happend 3-4 days a month and never back to back so it's just according to how badly my sinus are stuffed up

Pro 900 are known to be very sensitive to their position on the head, as well as the pads sometimes making a difference, and having the cable inserted and screwed properly is essential.

If its signature is your cup of tea, you're in for a treat :)

 

All I mentioned above is easily done, then it's all enjoyment from there onwards wink.gif
