Any other solid contenders for the the price? $250 and less for 40mm gold plated drivers seems like the best bang for the buck model that they make considering the materials used. Also, why does it seem Ultrasone is hard to find information about? Are they really that underrated?

 

Edit: also is that aluminum? I assume that's why reviews say it's heavy?

The top of the headband is fine on me, it doesn't bother me at all.

 

The cable can easily be made removable.


The cups are plastic with an aluminum veneer that scratches if you look at it the wrong way. The headband is made from a sturdy plastic which is great but does add to the weight a little.

 

Not a lot of love for the Ultrasone brand here on Head-Fi, you either love the sound or you absolutely hate it.

Edit again: also is that aluminum? I assume that's why reviews say it's heavy? How's the rest of the construction since it looks fairly plastic-y?

i would put my money on dj series, it has more soundstage.. similar sound with hifi series.

 

ultrasone is very under-rated, and the company in a general sense is different.

No ultrasone is bright nor has harsh highs. nor sibilant. 

 

From where did you get the ideea that this is the Ultrasone sound?

 

Compared to Hd800 or Ie800, ultrasone has smooth and laid back treble. And this is not good, as I feel the need to pump the treble with +12DB from 8Khz to 20Khz to compensate for not having enough treble. 

 

I really wish Ultrasone would make a headphone with enough treble, like Hd800, or Sennheiser would make a closed back Hd800. I think that Ultrasone are the only headphones that are closed back, good sounding, and not very heavy (other flagships as much as sound good, strain the neck).

I own the HFI-680. I actually find them quite harsh and mildly prone to sibilance. Fortunatel6 what I like about the HFI line is their easy modification. I removed tape behind the driver to allow more air for increased bass. 2/4 were initially covered by solid tape. I left 3 open and closed 1 with transpore. I like the increased bass. The rest of the spectrum was virtually untouched. I feel like getting some acoustic foam to put between my ear and the drivers. It's been known to reduce 'hot' treble.

That is one of the rumours that I read on HeadFi. Let's hope it comes true soon before I pull the trigger on something else and it will be too late for me and others in my situation.

Heya, can anyone tell me how pro900 perform on immersive and a bit of competitive gaming? How immersive is movie watching with those? I have dt990 and everything is perfect, but bass is lacking on some action movies and games. I heard that those are similiar in sound signatures and that a bass is quite more powerful that dt990. Can anyone have both and tell me how soundstage compare?
