A case of open vs. closed. For me, the environment you will listen to the headphones in, as well as sound leakage would be the deciding factor for me.

 

I have the Beyer T1 but since they are open, they get very little play time, due to my GF.

I originally had to return them 18 months ago due to a fault in the right cup.

Since then, I've been on a journey with closed headphones; from AKG K550, Ultrasone Pro 900, Beyer COP, Beyer DT770 AE, and none of them made me as happy as the HFI-780 did.

Looking forward to being reunited with my underrated HFI-780.

Do you have to mod them to get them onto the HFI-780?

 

I would think the sound isolation/sound leakage would suffer as a result?

 

In what ways does the DT 250 pads improve on the sound signature, the bass etc?

 

Thanks!

No mod required, they are an oval shape, so u have to stretch them when putting them on, it was a little fiddly, but wont take more than a minute or two..

They isolate slightly less well than they used to, but i never found them to be the best in terms of isolation.. Leakage didnt really suffer..

They dont change the sound signiture at all IMO, i would say they do calm down the treble a little, a slight decrease in bass, only noticed that because i tried one earpiece with the original pad and the other with the DT250 pad at the same time.

U can also opt not to put the soft mesh piece in as it is not attatched to the pad, i didnt try it without that piece, because then your ear is up against the plastic and speaker..

Hope that explanation helps.

I just bought a pair used HFI-680 in great shape for $91. Apparently the previous owner did not like the same thing I dislike at the begining; and that was that fresh out of the packaging they had an excessive brightness . (that said from a Grado SR225i).
 
I was thinking of selling them immediately, but instead I decided to give them a short burn-in time. Psychological or not, I feel a significant change after 24+- hours of the "cascade noise burn-in" track. Now sound great for my taste, and I think I started to appreciate them better. Not so sure about the neutrality or transparency; and I am not 100% convinced about the S-Logic tecnology, but they are a very nice and fun set of cans to listen to.
 
I think I will keep as my alternative for closed headphones for a while. Would love to try the HFI-2400 sometime. Maybe in the future.
 
I am an official Ultrasone Fan now!
 
EDIT:
I am using them straight from my laptop headphone jack, but I am considering the JDS Labs cMoy, or O2 in the near future.

Okay .. I'm currently thinking to try a "better" Ultrasone than my HFI2400. I get a bit more money than expected this month and can't resist to try another headphone redface.gif.

My first choice would be a pro2900 but I found a used Signature pro at a decent price and I'm not against getting a closed can.

What I especially expect is to have globally the same signature than my hfi 2400 with more overall forward and less dark sound . From what I read here and there Pro 2900 seems to be the better answer But is the Sig pro an option I might consider ?

I listent to anything ( Mostly various electro , Funk/soul/Jazz stuff and Classical and more rarely rock or Metal ) .

I prefer to not get too much headphones so the new one should replace my HFI-2400 as my All-Rounder ( for Music only . no game , no film wink.gif ) but I can consider to keep my HFI-2400 as a compliment .

Maybe I will ask my question in the "recommandation thread" to get more options.

If you want an all rounder headphone then stay away from buying another Ultrasone. Most Ultrasones have a v-shaped sound to them.

post #1391 of 2066
My Musical tastes match with V-shaped signature wink.gif So My "All rounder" can be V-shaped , I don't matter and I Really like Ultrasone signature ( indeed I didn't like pro750 )

PRO2900. You've described it twice in the above post. smily_headphones1.gif

Less forgiving than the 2400 though, so they may come across as aggressive with bad tracks.
