Ultrasone Pro 900 Impressions Thread - Page 367

post #5491 of 5811
I have now made my Pro900 even better, more comfy and harder hitting in the bass department.

I put a pair of Mr Speakers Alpha pads on them by removing the original speed switch pair, cutting off the velour cover and foam padding, and glued on the Alpha pads to the ring.

Great comfort, better isolation and bass that is more pounding (never thought that was possible with these). This mod, paired with the HD650 headband mod, makes this phone just another notch up the overall comfort to rival some of my best. These are such good phones already, this just adds to the package.

oh so u actually glued it on...i just scotchtaped it...before the destructive mod. :P

yes its comfy n good isolation,

but abit too sharp for me, so i use back my jmoneypads.

The alphapads works well with my d7k though.

So i think its rig-dependant.

If it works perfect for u, thats GREAT!!!

i believe this shure840 cable fits the pro900....and it sounds cleaner than the stock cable.

this topics a bit old but let me just go ahead and confirm that this cable, at least for proline 2500s, definitely doesnt work. while both are threaded 1/8s, the ultrasone actually has a few milimeters of flat metal before the actual threads, the shures dont. so the shure cable just falls right out of my headphones. no amount of finagling with either end has allowed me to actually get sound with this cable. a+ waste of money

The best solution seems to be the V-Moda audio only cables. $12, Kevlar reinforced and light and flexible. I've been using for weeks now.

I ordered a couple from Ultrasone.  Don't know if you're looking for portable use but this 2 ft. one is great for the PRO Series on the go with DAPs.

I don't know if any Ultrasones would be any good for portable use. I mean have you tried putting on your neck. The cans are too big!

Anyone here recommend the Keyes mod? I'm thinking of doing it just to try since I've heard good things, but I'm wondering if it actually improves overall sound quality or just thins out the bass a bit. Anyone have experience?

Nope.  Did a bunch of reading on it but didn't feel the need.  Seems easy enough and reversible though.  I added Alpha pads and enjoy the heck out of them as they are.

I'll check out the alpha pads thanks. I'm in the market for a Mad Dog actually so maybe I'll do some pad switching when I get one. 

 

Also, what position does everyone find best for S-Logic? I've heard both earcups positions towards the front and back of the ear from different sources. I can't seem to find anything from Ultrasone themselves. What's the general consensus?

^Not sure if this answers your question but if you put your ears near the front of the cups, the mids are less recessed and the bass is less overpowering.

Wow, that's a quite noticeable difference, thanks. I hadn't really tried putting the cups that far back on my head (and ears scraping the front of the pads) but it definitely makes the bass less "boomy" on songs that don't need it. I'm not sure if it helped the imaging at all (maybe a tiny bit?) but now I know when to move my ears to the front. Any other secrets?
