Final Thoughts: Sony MDR-XB1000 vs. Ultrasone Pro 900. Who is the Bass KING? ** Pictures ** - Page 8

post #106 of 138

To go out on a limb here. If you've heard a loudspeaker set up with EDM...they hit really hard. That's the Pro 900. If you've heard a decent set up with an actual subwoofer...that's the XB700/1000. 

 

The impact isn't there, but the bass is huge and goes deep.

I haven't heard the XB1000, so maybe it has this bass as well, I"m just pointing out that bass volume does not equal subwoofer-ish-ness.  < best word I've ever made up right there biggrin.gif

Definitely.  Like I said, I haven't heard the XB1000 to compare it with the D5000, but so far it has the most subwoofer bass I've heard in a headphone.  I would love to try the Sony, though, as I'm sure it compares beautifully.

DjAmTraX, I tried scrubbing through the thread to find my answer, but to no avail.

 

What headphone stand is that (below)?

That stand comes with Sony's SA-5000, though it may be possible to purchase the stand itself directly from Sony.

Thanks.

So, from what im gathering, the pro 900 feels compartmentalized, so the highs feel placed in a different area than the bass and result in sort of a mushed yet dynamic sound. 

 

The xb1000 from what ive gathered is more fluid and authoritative both in the demonstration of the highs, soundstage and lows.

 

Could you talk about the mid recession in the xb1000, if there is any? I'd like to know what voices sound like. Would you say they are on volume level with the rest of the instruments or pushed back a level?

Considering it's all Monster products you would have thought they would at least have Turbines but they don't even have that. rolleyes.gif

the 1000s are 300 msrp and you can find them for 200 if you're lucky. 

post #116 of 138

I worry that I might not be satisfied if I get the pro 900 to replace my beats pro which I love dearly :)

post #117 of 138

*sigh* more mixed Reviews over the XB 1000's and the Pro 900's...

 

I found a pair of xb 1000's from a site called PowerdBackup for $200! If they r legit then I save $120 and the xb 1000 wins hands dwn 

post #118 of 138

OP, does the xb-1000's feature detachable cables? I've got a pair and read a pretty serious review where he/she mentioned that the 1000's comes with detachable cables. could you, or anyone else with a pair, confirm/deny this?

 

Thanks in advance smile.gif

I've always wondered what could topple the Ultrasones bass-wise (without exceeding its price range). Unfortunately I am slightly disappointed with it being the Sony simply due to the design rolleyes.gif I just dread wearing something with such massive earpads, however comfortable they might look.

 

In any case, I will be looking into them due to this thread, when time allows it. If I do take a liking to them, then the Ultrasones are out, and I'll save like $200 on top of it (which is a shame in a way since I think so highly of the Pro 900). More interestingly is to personally see how they compare in soundstage, which is important for me. It's always distressing to see so many mixed opinions on both phones, it drives me to actually purchase/demo a pair to see for myself.

Like Wise, I didn;t jump on the XB1000s when I was a regular here, and I tink I'm going to try the Byer Dt 770 Pro 80, b4 I go Ultra or XB, ppl ofc complaion that the XB1000 is muddy but... that's kinda the point <3
