Unfortunately I haven't heard the HFI-780...redface.gif

I think the PRO900 are good closed headphones overall though, and they're very nearly the PRO2900 (they have more bass and the mids suffer as a result, but otherwise they're quite similar - if you throw the 2900 pads on them, it's hard to tell them apart (sonically or visually)). Amazon should still have them for ~$300, I'd say if you're curious about it, give'em a go, and if they don't do it for you - return'em and buy some music or something. smily_headphones1.gif

As far as the E11 - can't comment specifically, but IME they're fairly easily driven headphones, so I'd expect that any decently competent amplifier should have no issues driving them.

Every review I've read has said these are too bright and some people have even returned them because of it. I don't find them bright at all and even enjoy using the noise sharpener DSP in foobar. Maybe I just got used to the AD900's bright and airy sound.

I didn't find them too bright either, but I didn't feel they needed more treble boost either. redface.gif I think compared to something smooth/dark like the HD 580, or something cleaner like the F1, they're probably on the bright/aggressive side though.

u have a choice of metric or imperial sizing...:P

 

 

 

 

 

 

since i hv gotten the pro900, i have never thought of going "back" to the 780.

( its been quite awhile tobehonest... the cups on the 780 is smaller, n less comfy )

The only thing I wasn't prepared for with these headphones are how short the cable is. The cable makes me think these are portable cans.

I like the short cable on these, much less bulky for carrying around. If you need a longer cable, the 1/4 inch one they include will give you more reach.

Which cable? They come with two. The shorter one is advertised for mobile use, and the longer, coiled cable, for home/studio use. Either is entirely appropriate for either, assuming you've got an adapter (where needed). I think you can probably also buy longer, straight, aftermarket cables (I think Moon Audio still sells them).

You can buy replacement cables directly from Ultrasone as well. I ordered a straight one for my Signature DJ's. They ship from California.

Can you buy a long, straight cable from them though? That's actually something I've been curious about as well...redface.gif

You can. I bought the ten footer for my DJ's. It's actually the cable they use for the Pros but it's got the same locking mechanism, so it works.

Enjoy the short cable BASGTA....You can always buy an extension if necessary...The HOSA 10 ft. is good.....I have purchased the 2.7 ft. & 4.11..ft. cable from Ultrasone before because my PRO900s were shipped with the 10 ft. straight and the coiled cable.  I also had one of my PRO blue straight cables reterminated in a mini by a head-fier for more portable use...

 

Removeable cables on great phones= PRICELESS...

Was all "awesome!" and then saw that it costs: one hundred and eleven dollars. But still, thanks for the link. redface.gif

Wait, why? Neutrik connectors are cheap, and it doesn't look like the cable is anything special like OCC. You could get a badass custom cable for that price.

Apparently all of their Neutrik cables are expensive, but I found a much less expensive alternative...

If there's one thing I like about the Pro 900's, it's they way they look.  They look amazing and are extremely well built.  However at full price I find them a bit too overpriced in my opinion, but if you can find them for around $300 dollars to $400 dollars they aren't a bad buy.
