It depends what you want in the sound. I've heard the Kees mod calms the highs and lows while boosting the mids, making them more neutral and probably better for mixing. However, I like their sound signature as is so I'll just be leaving mine...

Thank you for answering !

 

Yes, more neutral is what I'm looking for, because I'm afraid it isn't enough right now.

I got mine about a week ago also and have burned them in for 150 hours so far. I've noticed a lot of change happening as I listen to them for hours and hours each day. At about 50 hours it was like a switch was flipped and the bass sounded much tighter and was my favorite but it then changed again. I won't even consider moding my 900s until I've put about 400 hours on them to see how they sound at that point. From what I've read it seems like a lot of people (not all) have used Kees Mod too early before even seeing how they sound after a proper burn in period. I might try it if the mids don't come out more but while using a MiniBox-ES amp with them I don't have an issue with the highs like many others have talked about. I only listen to hip hop and that might also be why the highs haven't been an issue also. I don't expect much change to happen after 200 hours though.

Hi there!

 

Is this headphone easy to drive? I wanted it to replace my monitoring headphones for mixing :D. Just direct to the DJ mixer, sometimes I'll have them with the V200

post #5406 of 5801

They sound pretty good directly off an iPod without an amp. They sound even better off of my DJ mixer and can go super loud without an amp. No need for an amp if you don't want one.

post #5407 of 5801

I have my desktop audio setup with a M-Stage and soon the Violectric V200 connected to a MF V-DAC II, my mixer is the Allen&Heath Xone42. I will use with both setups.

 

So I'll get them :D

post #5408 of 5801

can anyone tell me hows the comfort of the pro 900 compared to the HFI-780?? Im considering getting the PRO 900 as my next pair of headphones, but if theyre the same in terms of comfort as the HFI-780 then Im gonna have to look for an alternative... 

post #5409 of 5801

The difference in comfort will mainly just be the pads (velour vs pleather) and maybe the size o the cup as the PRO 900 seems to have slightly larger cups but I could be wrong. I know my PRO 750 are very comfy and they are basically identical to the PRO 900 aside from the drivers. I hate pleather pads and uncomfortable headphones because I listen for long periods of time and the PRO 750 is more than adequate as far comfort goes. YMMV.

post #5410 of 5801

Thing with the HFI-780 is, ive put velour pads on it, and still after a while it does start to bother me.. but if u say the cups are bigger thats good... i wanna know how the headband is on the PRO 900 , and does it clamp as much as the 780??

post #5411 of 5801

I haven't tried any of the 'sones that are shaped like the HFI-780 so I can't say. And I could be wrong that the 750/900 have larger cups, it just looks that way in the pictures. I'm sure there are some people here in the thread that can answer those questions though. I know I was actually quite impressed with the comfort of the 750. The clamping force is definitely not loose but not too tight for me and despite being closed they seem to breathe fine. I've never experienced hot ears with them. Good luck.

post #5412 of 5801

if someone has a pair of pro 900, could they post pictures of the earcup with measurements of the dimensions and earcup depth? I would really appreciate that!

The 900 are the same size as the 2900, but the 2900's pads are somewhat thicker (and my understanding is the 2900 is equivalent to the 2500/750). As far as clamp, I think it can be hit or miss - my first 2900's headband was a torture device (I seriously had headaches), the replacement is fairly loose fitting, and the 900s I had were somewhere in the middle (but still comfortable).

I think you'll be fine wearing the 900 for at least a number of hours, unless you're doing extreme physical activity or are very sensitive to having anything touching your head. That said, I think the 2900 are more comfortable (the 900's pads aren't as soft).

thanks for that :) 

 

would you say the PRO 900 is worth the upgrade from HFI-780?

post #5415 of 5801

I'm about to pull the trigger on a pair of these headphones. Just one question: Would the Fiio e11 be a good match for them?
