Also could anyone suggest a pair of custom in-ear monitors that have similar sound characteristics to the  Ultrasone Signature Pro?

What about the new Ultrasone IEMs?

They sound different. Can't really reproduce the S-Logic of the headphones as well.

The IQ are $949.00 and Tio are 549.00. I think I'll go for some good CIEM for that price.

They will have to be customs please, not universals. I cannot stand universals as they never get that seal completely right and when they do it slowly slips out. Having to then again take a few seconds to readjust.

By the way, this is in no way a reflection of the IQ or TIO specifically, however at least in my experience, custom IEMs don't always necessarily mean they're better than universals. To assume so would be unwise.

These have me tempted to sell my D7000. Went from Pro900 to D7000 I guess going back to Ultrasone would be poetic justice lol.

Do you need isolation? If you don't, I'd suggest giving the SigPros a listen first before considering the move. Adding the SigPros to your D7000 and headphone collection OTOH is a positive move in my opinion.

Hmmm the idea of a portable can that I can take on commutes and planes is a definite bonus. Where would I be able to try them out in the NY/NJ area? Also I don't want to have 2 high end closed cans. I wish the D7000 had a better midrange which sound like a strength of the SP.

If you intend to use it for commuting and portable use, then you're right the SP is a good choice (same with it's new young brother, SigDJ) and the SP has a nice midrange that will fill where the D7000 is laid back on. But the SP & SigDJ won't have the soundstage that you're accustomed to with the leaky D7000. Wouldn't somewhere like BHPhotoVideo not have demo models on the shelf?

 

My hands on experience with the D7000s aren't as long as with the SP or SigDJ but I do have the Fostex TH-900. To my ears, these leaky cans have exceptional soundstage for closed backs. The SigPros/SigDJs OTOH so definitely sound more closed as expected. But they isolate very well, portable, and durable.

 

My issue with the SigPros have been the luck of the draw. By now I've tried more than 10 SigPros and I've heard about 3 different types. You can read about my experience in my signature with my Signature DJ impressions (where in one section I was trying to compare the DJs to the Pros).

I love b&h I actually plan on buying them from there if I do indeed decide to go that route. They do have headphones to try but I'm not sure if they have them to try or I might have to ask at the counter.
I read your review of the SDJ and they sound interesting. I would really love to hear both them and the SP with my music in order to make a decision. I'll probably head to B&H and J&R on Friday. I'll do some research for some other HiFi stores in the area.

Hey, I was in your same shoes, I actually had the D7000s and the Signature Pros.. they complement eachother extremely well because each adds where the other is lacking... the Signature Pros have a inferior soundstage compared to the D7000s but they have much better detail retrieval and separation.. but, in my quest to only have 1 "high-end" headphone that does it all - I sold both headphones and purchased the Fostex TH900 (the big brother of the D7000) and I feel like its the closest thing to combining the best traits of the Sig Pro and the D7000s (well balanced sound with a excellent low end, musical, wide soundstage, and great retrieval and separation). I know its quite a bit of $, but if you end up getting the Sig Pros (only) you will eventually be left wanting, I don't think you will have that same feeling with the TH900s. Note, I really liked the Signature Pros, but they are not as musical as the D7000s and whenever I wanted to just casually listen I would usually reach for my Denons, thats why the Fostex were perfect for me.

I've looked at the TH900 but they are above my price range also from what I've gathered they are too close in sound to the D7000. I think I want to experiment with sound signatures and at least I know the TH900 is out there in case I want to upgrade later. I do love this journey though. My wallet doesn't but its only money.
