I absolutely would not spend $400 for the Pro 900. For $100, the 770's are pretty good. N ote that the Pro 900 excels in mid bass and has very little sub bass, while the 770 Pro 80 is all about the sub bass, less about the mid bass. At least IIRC. It's been a LOOOOOONG time. I wouldn't go by grpahs when it comes to sub bass, as the D7000 graphs online would lead you to believe it has a severe sub bass roll off. ANyone who has heard the D7000 knows that is the farthest thing from the truth.

edit: Having gone back to headroom, you can see that 770s have a pretty noticeable dip in the mid bass compared to sub bass. No wonder I liked it's bass a lot. I much pretty sub bass over mid bass.

Problem with the 770 is that it can sound stuffy/muffled at times. It is very immersive though.

New Sony Flagship with 65mm Diamond Transducers.

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/728006/sonys-new-flagship-2014

 

Evade the hype train until price, measurements and build quality.

 

On this note I want to point out again how awesome it is to have a customer service like Beyerdynamic and V-Moda. I wish more (looking at you Sony) would follow. Though Ultrasone isn't bad either with 5 years of warranty.

65mm drivers? Geez, somebody's penis must be tiny

Considering Sony has already used 70mm drivers, it's not like 65mm drivers should be a bullet point. Pretty certain that 40mm can deliver near sonic perfection, and 70mm drivers can give us crap.

Oh Sony.

Lost interest once I noticed that it seems to be closed back. I have absolute no interest in closed backl headphones, especially when portability isn't a concern.

What is the best sound card for Philips Fidelio X1. Because this headphone need 500 mW

HD800 use 56mm and there is absolutely no reason to go any bigger, unless you know, OUR DRIVERS ARE BIGGER THAN YOURZ

The Pro 900 has even more, you'd have to have iron ears to be on the side of the fence that the treble doesn't bother you.

I haven't heard the DT770 myself (and it looks like there is a wide sample variation anyway), but I'd recommend pursuing that one and getting some demo time with it. $100 is a great price for that headphone.

After a bit of browsing through your music catalogue you'll start to notice that voices don't sound very natural and have a metallic stain.

There's a Kies Mod to reduce the highs if you wanna do that but imo there are very few basshead headphones done right and the Pro 900 while popular isn't one as that metallic character will never go away. The Signature DJ is the best basshead headphone if isolation is a factor. It's amazing actually but too expensive (like all Ultrasone stuff).

The DT770 has a better soundstage, less piercing highs (smoothest by far were MMX 300 2013 Edition + DT770 LE AE 32 Ohms).

Thanks guys. The 900 I was looking at is on eBay. Forgot to mention that it had the alpha pads and the hd600 headband. The seller said the alpha pads would reduce the treble and make the bass tighter. Not too sure about that though. Hes asking $450 but I can get him down to $400 possibly $350. The 770s are very tempting for $120 so I'm most likely going with them.

It won't beat an AKG K612, but it's a simple wireless Playstation solution with 7.1 surround encoding with decent battery life (and wired stereo for anything else) that folds up compact. It's not amazing at any one thing, but a good price considering all the features you get (everything in one package).

I wonder if it's a flagship or not. Sony is basically the only people that can make a closed-back dynamic sound better than any dynamic headphone regardless of opened or closed if they tried. I hope it's the long-awaited successor to the R10 although I have my doubts as surpassing or even being equal to the R10 is a tall order. The other question is the price of the new headphones.

Thanks, i didn`t find anything else at this price. It`s looks more durable than the old Pulse Elite.

If anyone else have some recommendation:beerchug:

I can't speak to the durability vs the Pulse Elite, but I did just see a comparison YouTube video where a guy with both pointed out that the Gold was more comfortable due to the blue padding along the inside of the headband. There are probably some wired choices that could challenge it for value and sound quality, but closed/wireless/mic'd/surround all-in-one it's a pretty good option if you can't get the Skullcandy's.

So I may or may not have just grabbed a used PS4 for $216.  >.>  Whether or not I have depends on how loudly my wife yells when it arrives...

If she yells too loudly I may be willing to assist in restocking your wallet.
