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?
