If it isn't the cable connection, I'd say wait until Ultrasone returns from holiday and see what they have to say.

Oh okay. I just hope warranty covers this, as I have never gone into the headphones.

Sounds like the internal wiring is causing the problems

Looking into getting a pair of the Pro 900's for my at home setup. Mostly listen to a lot of EDM music and some trance. Just curious if there are some others out there that can vouch for this headphone being solid for this genre or offer some insight on a different headphone.

I don't know the PRO900 but I really like the PRO2900 with the genres you've described - they're generally my preference out of my collection for electronica, and I'd have no issues suggesting them to others. My understanding is the 900 are equally competent for that genre, but I've never tried them.

But will ultrasone fix this?

I'm gonna give the pro750 another chance. Does anyone know of any mods other than the Kees mod to get the tone closer to neutral?

Ultrasone + neutral?

Good one xD I know they are hardly near to neutral, they have their weird peaks, but I'm interested in trying anything to tame the treble and bass

I think it's kind of a take it or leave it thing. You can EQ the bass down, and even EQ the treble down, but you won't change the resonance or how S-LOGIC works, which is what makes them sound so funky more or less. If that makes sense.

I'm listening to this:

 

 

With my Ultrasone HFI-450+Fiio E11+Fiio E6+Cowon J3. Excellent Detail and the vocals are centered. You can really here Joni's voice at all angles when necessary.

Why on earth are you using two amps with the J3 for those headphones? blink.gif

Because two is better than one?

No I really have no idea either and just noticed that when you pointed it out. Isn't one of them able to be a DtoA though? (I know next to nothing about FiiO products).

It makes one HUGE difference. The music on my J3 sounds crappy alone. The Fiio E11+Fiio E6 makes the soundstage HUGE, the detail exceptional for its' price range and the bass dives even deeper towards the 10 Hz level. The treble can reach its' full potential, in terms of peaking, yet it's still tamed. I pretty much brought out the HFI-450's potential with this setup, but all that remains is using the EQ. I'm still trying to get the right signature for the various genres of music I listen to.

BTW, I crossed them.

post #1635 of 2063

Also, if you have any suggestions about using my setup in a more efficient way, then feel free to tell me. I'm still trying to improve it and I need some help. :)
