Not necessarily, although there are alot of new people asking about headphones with good bass and such. I think it depends Also on musical needs. People who listen to classical and jazz aren't as worried about bass as people who like EDM and dubstep.

Dubstep sounds AWESOME on the Pro 900s.

I haven't heard any dubstep that I feel an emotional connection to. Alot of music of that type sounds like someone bored playing with sound samples. I'm more into 90s metal, industrial and alternative rock. Though I'm trying to find new stuff I like. What do you suggest?

I like the 900s with trance and house type music, with pulsing basslines and sweet vocals. Try something off of an ASOT compilation for example.

I think they do nice with jazz and swing too; to be honest. I also don't always like a bassy headphone with bassy music - impact and quantity is not the only game in town. This isn't to say the 900 are low quality, but they aren't the tightest or smoothest sound I've heard.

First,please forgive my english happy_face1.gif

I got my 900 about a month, it sound really better after burn in.

My question is: I found when I put my hands on the cup to cover the pad, it sounds  much better!! the bass is much deeper! So that make me realize I need something to cover the pad instead of my hands.

I did some researching found J$ but they are not exist anymore. So, is there somewhere I can buy a pair of pad for pro 900?

Thanks for reading even with no responseredface.gif

Hello friends!

 

I've had the Pro 900 for a few months now. I use it with my ipod. I've "TWerked" around endlessly with all kinds of settings, but I love the sound I get from the set-up that is described below.

 

Initially, I used it straight out the headphone jack of my ipod. This was not a good idea. You do not get high quality and clear sound without amplification. You can power them to high volumes, sure, but the quality of the sound will be less than ideal.

 

It is easy to hear a substantial difference with an amp! I bought a Fiio E11. It sounds great from the Fiio. BUT you MUST also buy an LOD (Fiio L3 or L9) if you are listening through an Ipod. You must. It makes the sound MUCH better than without it. Use the L9 instead of a male to male connecter.

Recap: Ipod + Fiio L9 + Fiio E11. This is the combo you want for great portable sound!

(As a note, I like the FiiO EQ to be at 1, the gain on L, and the power on H.) The power setting is inside the unit underneath the battery. I wasn't aware of it when I first had the e11!

 

I also find it ESSENTIAL to use the "bass reducer" EQ found on the ipod. It tames the bass down a little- to acceptable levels. The bass on these headphones is just too much otherwise, and it really "covers" some of the rest of the music.  These Pro 900s have a 10 DB bass boost. It's too much. The bass reducer will pull that down a few DBS to balance the sound better. You will STILL have the wonderful (and huge) mid-bass response that makes this headphone a pro 900. But it will fit in the mix much better. Try it! I am listening right now, and it's just the best sound I have ever heard from my 900's :) 

 

If you use these settings, I think you will be very pleased with the sound. It is much improved. It is beautiful. The bass is in better check, and doesn't drown out details. I strongly recommend you grab an e11, l9, and use the bass reducer EQ. After that, it's a matter of positioning the headphone well. I prefer the way it sounds with my ears positioned towards the top back part of the headphone. It gives a great bass response! Play around with the placement, after you've used the above settings. It does change the balance of the sound in some not so subtle ways. The headphone is still more BRIGHT than I'd prefer, but it's a small gripe.

 

The sound is pretty massively awesome now. Enjoy, and please leave me your impression if you try this combo. Have a wonderful life.

Thanks for reading even with no response:o

What do you mean "cover the pad" - you want a leather-type pad? Or you need replacements?

Ultrasone sells the velour/fabric pads via their website (I think they're like $50/pr), and regarding leather/pleather pads, I think the DJ1 Pro pads might fight, but I have no idea what their quality is like (I don't think they're real leather); Ultrasone should also sell those via their website. smily_headphones1.gif (I have no idea what those pads do to the sound either, just saying).

I feel the same as you; dubstep doesn't do much for me. I don't mind some of the Pretty Lights stuff. You can download it for free on his site, too. Hot Like Dimes is a fun track. He has some other good stuff but I don't listen to a lot of it to remember any particular tracks.

 

I haven't been paying much attention to my Pro 900s lately. All of my listening has been done on my new HE-400s. I just pulled them out and am listening to them right now. Dang, these things have authority and are shockingly comfortable in comparison. I love them both but I don't think I could separate from these. I was kind of expecting to not need the Pro 900s as much after getting the HE-400s but that doesn't seem to be the case. Not that it is a problem, of course. wink.gif

Interesting .. i recently sold my he-400. I'm afraid I both liked and hated them . Can you explain differences between pro900 and he400 please ? I currently own a Sig pro but I stay interested in pro900/2900 :)

post #5355 of 5820
I'd be curious about HE-400/PRO900 as well...smily_headphones1.gif
