I' m the happy owner of pro900 for... about a year, i guess, and still, the more i listen them - the more i'm in love with them (so, that means my love is infinite, hah).

Nevertheless, im thinking of buying signature pro. Dont know why, just something is scratching inside of my head.

Own the Pro900 and had the Sig Pro and just be warned - the bass is nowhere like the Pro900.  I have read that the Sig DJ does so may want to keep that in mind.

Considering that this is an appreciation thread I think that most people here would probably be enjoying their pro 900's.

I waited until someone had one to sell and bought it. Just be patient and someone would eventually have one that they don't want. :smile:

Although this is off topic the top answer to this question made my soul die and I thought I should share it with you.

Hey.. it's like a business when looking for cans. The more eyes you can get on your ad the better.

 

And I've had one entertain the idea already thanks to this thread. Hopefully it goes through :)

That's good to know. Just hope the person follows through.

If he/she does then I hope you enjoy them.

When I got my Sig DJs I was hoping they had all the bass of the Pro900 with more details but as it turns out they're more of what I think is referred to as "bassophile" headphones meaning the bass is notably accentuated but just shy of being "basshead" quantity(Which, IMO the 900 has). However, it is still very good and I think the S-Logic Plus gives slightly better increase in soundstage as well as perceived detail in the midrange.

 

That being said the Pro900 has the best bass out of all my collection. My pair was initially shrill out of the box but the highs settled down quite a bit after around 20-30 hours and are now very enjoyable. You can't beat the texture/impact of the sub bass for EDM- those dubstep wobbles never sounded so good :L3000:

That's a bit surprising yet not shocking to me, considering how amazing the bass is on the Pro900's. I always thought the Sig DJ would match it.

this pro900 is such a delicious can, i never quite "noticed" the bass actually...

the sound coming out of my can is so "natural" to me, LOL.

i listen to alot of classicals n vocals on this can tobehonest, its so clear, soaring n spacious.

never will i sell this can.

Completely agreed. I use this can as my all arounder if if no one thinks that's what these are good for. The only thing I might disagree with you is that they do in fact sound like closed cans so it's not as spacious as I would like. As in, if I were to put these on my head for the first time with my eyes closed, I could tell they are closed easily (apparently the Alpha Dog doesn't feel this way).

I find the opposite. Compared to my other headphones, other than the RS1, I find that they do not sound very closed at all and quite spacious for a closed can. And I am a believer in the pro-logic effect. On some HPs, the position of the headphone on the ear makes a little bit of a difference but with the Pro900, it changes quite a lot.

For my setup, its a combo of the audiogd dac...

the cabledyne cables,

the tubes i bought...

each of the above items, when i first plugged them in..

added more space n depth...the synergy jus adds on;

so i am having loads of fun on this can.

Anyway i am not saying it outcompetes an open can,

but felt i have stretched it to a level way beyond what i initially heard on this can...

and this is my 2nd pro900...so i did have quite some time bedding with this can.

my point is, dun giv up on this can yet...if u just started toying with it.

;)

I actually agree with you mostly since I think maybe I worded my last post incorrectly. I didn't mean that the soundstage/imaging is subpar; in fact, it's one of the best I've heard on any sub $1000 priced can so we agree in this case. But for different reasons, I just can't quite put the Pro 900s on a natural sounding level as the higher end Grado Prestige Series and HD600s. It's the airiness that's not there. The soundstage is wide and deep enough definitely, but I don't get that feeling of airy openness. Maybe I don't have a good amp pairing with it? Still though, I would trade the airiness any day for such full bodied, clean, bassy sound, but just wanted to say, I do think the Pro 900s lack airiness unless they need lots of juice to really shine. It might be also that I am associating/mistaking airiness with anemic/flat bass/that feeling of the bass escaping through the air behind the can that obviously the Pro 900 does not have.

The PRO900's are definitely on my wishlist. The price would be worth it for me if they are something I would want to hold onto for many years to come. But should I go for the less expensie PRO750's or the 900's? If there isn't mush of a difference in sound, then the 750's would be fine right? Or am I missing something about the 900s

post #5610 of 5811
If u buy the 750....u will still have the nagging feeling that u should hv bot the 900s...
