- two rings, like in original pads, insides of memory foam(solid ring)+ring of soft cotton, mesh, plastic base cut from plastic cap-drilled-sanded holes 0.2mm aprox, did not check. Cost unknown, since I got enough foam for five more pairs+6 of slightly harder foam, other materials under 25eur total.Goal to get size and comfort to edition 10 level. Sound quality to be yet judged. Pictures separately prototype, on - 00 series:rolleyes:.

 

Looks great, impressions? I'm guessing lighter bass and more balanced sound.

Does anyone know of a suitable material to replace the black reflex dots on the metal plate? I have several pairs that I was looking to replace them on.

does anyone know if the pro750 uses the same driver as the pro900?

post #5870 of 5880

I could say, sounds a bit softer. Would like to try kees mod sometime too. Anyway I like the pads, should be an official option like this for people with sensitive ears. Memory foam and larger size.

I ordered this cable for my (new) b-stock PRO 900(not i), for mobile use, if it sounds at least as good as stock mobile cable im happy.

Not gonna pay the same amount for new cable than headphones.

 

I have some other new stuff coming too, so might tell my opinions. But I absolutely LOVE these headphones so far! (open headphones are not possible for my use).

Guys, help me please decide which cans to buy for my collection. I need a pair of bass cans that will shine on trance, house and other electronic /edm music. I already own Opp PM-3 that are nice with EDM, still it does not present all low end spectrum as punchy and boomy as I wished. Already checked the reviews made by goldenear, but unfortunately they don't have a review of Oppo PM-3. Could you please tell me what will be better an upgrade to PRO 900 or PRO 2900? Also, I own HA-2 DAC/AMP.

​I want to thank you already because you I can see what cans you owned and that currently you have 900's. Still, what are the differences between DT 770 and PRO 900? I mean why do you are keeping the DT's? :)

post #5876 of 5880

The 900's are (IMO) made for electronic music. The have awesome bass (duh) and sharp, crisp treble. It's just lots of fun and impressive with electronic stuff. Emphasis on bass and sparkle.

 

The DT770 is a good choice. It is clean and clear. The bass is impressive, it is not massive in quantity but it goes very deep, like sub level bass. It is also a V shaped frequency response with a pretty recessed midrange. I have the newer 32 ohm version, and I got some velour pads since the other ones got hot. These are impressive for songs which emphasize the sub bass, like dubstep.

 

One of my absolute favorites with the genre is the Yamaha EPH-100. It's got a tight, punchy bass, and some excellent highs. It has good imaging and the midrange is not so recessed. Unlike the Pro900 and DT770, it's more warm sounding rather than colder sounding. Highly recommended at the price, these are perfect EDM IEMS. These are like perfect in sound signature for me, I wish I could find an exact equivalent over ear headphone to match this sound signature.

​I think I will love 900 cause when I am listening to PM-3's somewhere I say: oh it would been great to have some treble, especially on armin van buuren or alan walker. Ofc I need nothing more than time when listening to let's say Gitan by Graou with PM-3 :) So, in the end with 900 I will be complete yey

 

EDIT: btw why in Europe this heads are soo expensive comparative with US?

Make sure to thank me later wink.gif

Pro 900 for el music all the way, can go with signature too, but cheap and very good is pro 900, after looong burn in, that is. I have signature pro as well, but as a workhorse - 900, used daily. Tron soundtracks, daft punk, all kick in very nicely.

UltraSone Pro900i Premium Audiophile Stereo Headphones New for $249.95 and a $50 NewEgg gift card from Adorama Camera via NewEgg until 28 Sep 2016.



As a price comparison I usually check Amazon/CamelCamelCamel, however B01BOOFZA0 seems to have dropped from $1,062.40 to a mere $932.99 from only third party sellers. The only other similar product appears to be the Ultrasone PRO 900i S-Logic Plus (B0188Z2I76) at $347.96, also from only third party sellers.
