Ultrasone Pro 900 Impressions Thread - Page 359

post #5371 of 5811

Howdy guys, many MANY moons ago I was a frequant hater of the pro 900s :D and I'm happy to say Soon I'll be trying these as part of a Head Fi trade! YAY but I still want to try these, and I'm still skeptical of the validity of S-logic q.q

 

still got a pair of Dt 990s today [many say these are an open version] of the closed pro 900 so who knows if S-logic works with my ears I might be a BELIEVER...

I grabbed 2 @$199 each.  Already have 750 but I never sell my stuff so...  I'm stuck with 2 900s and 1 750.  (Well, I'm pretty sure I'll end up giving one 900 to a friend eventually.)

Good job! You could probably even sell a pair and make a profit...    wink_face.gif

What do you mean by "the validity of S-LOGIC"? confused_face_2.gif

For those of you who still have the box, does yours have a misspelling on the back? Under the "PRO Box contents" section on the back of mine, it says "Neutrik plug, one straight (lenght 1.5m)." It also doesn't have a 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter like it sometimes says it does, but rather has one 3.5mm terminated cable and one 1/4" terminated cable. I got it from Amazon, so I don't think it's a fake....

For those of you who were wondering how these compare to the DT770's, I posted an initial review here:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/653978/ultrasone-pro-900-vs-beyerdynamic-dt770-80-ohm

I'll flesh it out a little once these burn in.

I was listening to some Dubstep last night as was thinking how much I miss my Pro 900s. Most FUN pair of 'phones I've had. If that lightening deal ever happens again, I'm going to be all over it.

hey, can someone with the ultrasone pro 900 please post earcup dimensions and depth of the earcup??
 
I really want to try them, but if they don't fit my ears I don't want to bother buying them, loving the sound, and then having to return them hahaha
 
thanks!

2 inch diameter inside, about 9/16 inches deep uncompressed.

I can confirm my amazon ordered pair came with the two different terninating cables as opposed to the adapter. Will have to check the box later on though

that seems like a really shallow earcup depth to me... do you feel like you ear presses up against the inside of the driver? have you experienced any comfort issues after long periods of wear?

 

thanks for your help!

I checked it again; I was measuring the outside of the pads. The inside is a little deeper, but I don't have any rulers that will measure to the end. They are kind of shallow, but they seem comfortable enough to me. The main detractor to the comfort is the clamp pressure with these, and the small amount of padding at the top. I'm less sensitive to comfort with headphones than some people (Senn HD650's feel very comfy, just headphones like Grados make my ears hurt), so YMMV.

oh you know, S-Logic only works with a certian kind of ears "so the say" it's why the Ultrasone cans are LOVE or hate... because if ur ears are "wrong" then s logic sounds "bad" or... so they say! Still I'll demo these eventually. Although I proably won't like them... for the FIRST time today I eq'd the bass DOWN on my dt 990s :O there was seriously to much of it and it pissed me off [and I was listening to Rusko :O] 

post #5384 of 5811

I currently own Hfi 780's, I am considering upgrading to the Pro 900's. Anyone here have experience with both cans that could share any key differences between the two cans? 

 

Sound and comfort are my two main concerns. 

 

Thank you all in advance for any feedback. 

post #5385 of 5811

Hello all. Just signed up on the forum to share a tidbit about my purchase and to possibly get some feedback. I ended up buying the Pro 900 the other day as I have been looking for some closed headphones for a little while now after my Audio Technica ATH-m50 purchase.

 

Before buying, the things I have learned were that the bass was excellent on the ultrasones, and the mids/highs were recessed. All of the reviews I have came across the upper frequencies being recessed also mentioned shortly after that it still sounded great! i.e. "...a bit recessed. Don't get me wrong, these are still great sounding headphones...."

 

I don't consider myself a basshead: I don't like loud, MAX SPL but I do like rich, deep bass that you can feel a rumble in your chest cavity. I do believe the Ultrasones PRO 900 gives me that but a lot of my music incorporates lots of vocals, piano, symbals? types of sounds... I am actually trying to figure out what is the genre of music I have started to listen to...so excuse me for not being fairly accurate: chillstep, progressive House?, uplifting trance, classical here and there, a little bit of hip-hop, 1 or 2 dubstep songs, pop, RnB, the Skyrim soundtrack.

 

Anyways, I have been playing music through them between 50-75 hours now and at this point, I don't see them improving (running out of a FiiO USB DAC/AMP combo). So am I correct in concluding these aren't the headphones for me?
