Ultrasone Pro 900 Impressions Thread - Page 16

post #226 of 5880

Would these beat out the D7000 and Pro900 in terms of bass then? I have both of these and hoping the quest for bass was over!

The JVC DX1000 is what I meant. 

 

The LCD-2 may not have the most quantity of bass, but it is pretty much flat down to 10hz or something. Consider what would happen with a very powerful amp and a good equalizer. People don't talk about it much in the high end circles around here, but equalizing is especially important in the quest for bass. Most pro equalizers are balanced, so it makes it easy to run a full balanced setup in to the LCD-2.

 

Having said that, The headphones above are probably only a bit better than the Pro 900 decently amped. It is the law of diminishing returns.

Its like the nice folks at ultrasone made a headphone just for me. darthsmile.gif

 

1) Excels with electronic music: I primarily listen to Drum & Bass

2) Surpasses the already impressive D2000 in bass prowess

3) Has excellent positioning for FPS gaming

 

Damit Head-fi.... I've just found the D2000 and they rock my world and thought I'd not need another Headphone for a while. WRONG, seeing this thread makes my wallet weep as I'm now hatching a plan to sell my others sets to buy these. After that I'm not going to read anymore reviews!

You saw how much I loved my D2000 in my comparison right? Well, for the Pro 900 to be preferred over the D2000 for me is really saying something. I just finished up with like a 50 song comparison just the other week, and you would be surprised at how much the Pro 900 kicks butt. With electronica, drum & bass, metal, techno, and most rock, the Pro 900 absolutely slaughters the D2000. Yes, even I would say such a bold statement. Don't get me wrong, the D2000 is beyond fantastic, as it is my 2nd favorite headphone, but the Pro 900 somehow surpasses beyond fantastic. The bass is unreal.

The ES10 I had for a while had more bass than my Pro 900. I thought the Pro 900 was a better headphone overall and the isolation on the ES10 was just too bad to use as a portable so I sold it. The Pro900 was my first full size headphone and I have since collected quite few other cans, which I all enjoy for their different strenghs, but if I had to keep only one it will be the Pro900 without a doubt.

I am still very curious on the DX1000 and keep checking the sale forum but you have to be quick to snatch one.

You mean eq to add more bass? DX 1000 and LCD-2 is two headphones I have never ever thought of doing that. DX 1000 play close to boominess but on the right source/amp seldom jumps over other then for some pop. LCD-2 can probably do with even more bass but it´s hardly bass shy for any type of music I would say.

 

As for vs Pro 900 the bass is really quite different. DX 1000 have a more sub wooferish type of bass where my Kees modded 900 sounds thinner but goes as deep if not deeper.

Maybe one day, I'll have the opportunity to audition not only the D7000, but the DX1000 and the LCD-2.  I really enjoyed the D2000 though, so as long as the D7000s have higher quality (and maybe a tad more quantity, at least in the deep deep bass) bass, mids, and highs (which I'm sure they do), I know I'd love them.  They're just sooooooooo comfortable

Looks like a great portable rig.  Sexy headphones as well, of course wink_face.gif

post #237 of 5880

Hmm..heres a question.

 

Anyone aware of a set of closed headphones with the SQ(Highs/Mids/Lows/Soundstage) of the PRO900's, with a punchy bass you can "feel", but have no noticeable leaks and decent isolation?

 

I'm guessing the answer might be a set of expensive cans x]

post #238 of 5880

Oh, and that they would be driven quite well without an amp, but would excel (as most headphones would) with the use of an amp.

PRO 900... Space Helmet Mod?

 

Ultrasones have the most unique sound signature that I have heard thus far... Unfortunately there is no perfect headphone so there will always be compromises to be had.

 

I would say look towards Denons.

Denons are actually semi-open and reportedly leak a little sound, so i am going to have to disagree.
