Unfortunately, I can't bear to wear them for more than a few minutes because the pad on top of my head digs into my brain. :(

 

wat do?

 

You could possibly try the Sennheiser 650 headband mod : http://www.head-fi.org/t/579875/comfort-mod-hd650-headband-padding-on-the-pro-900

This could work. Unfortunately I can't acquire the recommended Sennheiser spare part in my country. Any suggestions for an alternative?

I'm also from Israel, and I see that they do ship here if you really are interested in a permanent possible upgrade in comfort. Otherwise I guess you have to take breaks when doing long listening if they hurt.

That is a great solution. I use the same headband on my Denon D2000, D7000 as well as my Pro900.

hi guys just wondered if anyone had experienced these with the XONAR STX? i can't help but feel these feel lifeless & very bright, I can't find a track which does anything for me

 

let me know guys, it seems like the Phillips X1 work very good with the STX

I didn't like the Fidelio X1, maybe i purchased a pair that were defected or i didn't give them enough time but the bass seemed really distorted at higher volumes and it annoyed me. I think the PRO 900 would work good with the STX, it is more than capable seeing as it can drive headphones up to 600ohm. I use the EQ a fair bit on my Audio Technica ATH-PRO700MK2 and the bass setting on my STX is actually to much for my ears with them headphones and they're 68ohm.

not sure what im doing wrong then :-\

 

they dont sound good to me but I know they have potential

 

maybe im comparing them to the X1 too much ..

What is actually the problem you're encountering with the Pro 900 and the STX? I can't imagine they're bright especially if you have used a bit of EQ? Everyone here says how bass orientated they are, do they distort at high volumes?

I've had my Pro 900's for about two years now. It was my first expensive headphone purchase. Anyways, I'm now seeing the general weakness in this headphone.

 

1) That recessed midrange. Most people know this by now, but it's true.

 

2) Dry and cold sound.

 

Vocals won't get justice on the Pro 900. It simply pushes them back.

 

Highs and bass are nicely detailed, and of course the strong bass impact. But man, the midrange is the weak point here, as is the rather cold overall presentation.

 

I still use them often (especially for gaming). EDM music is pretty excellent with them, too. In addition, they are fast hitting (high PRAT?), which works well for modern music. In addition, I find them comfortable and like the velour pads, no ear sweat! Great sense of soundstage for a closed back.

Besides the Vmoda cable, any other alternatives/favorites? Need alternative ASAP.

OH I didn't even look at ultrasone's site because I thought they'd be as overpriced as their pads. Can't believe how reasonable the prices are. Nice, thank you.
