All the more impressive for their size and durability, a really practical set of headphones for the real world that delivers great sound straight from the source, but perform beautifully when amped at home.

Something really nice I found out about S-logic Plus is that it's less fatiguing to my ears than traditional drivers. I think sending air pressure produced by the driver at an angle and not directly at my eardrums is the result of this. Whatever it is, I can enjoy my music for longer without tinnitus, which is a big big plus for me.

I agree. :beerchug:

 

Plus with all the great new DAPs coming to market we can have our pie and eat it too. I'm looking at the Fiio X5 and Ibasso DX90. Both of these look like big potential winners that can drive the Sig Pros fairly well.

My Sig pro is loaned for next weeks.. I've purchases a Schiit Vali a few days ago and i'me VERY curious to test Sig Pro + Vali combo. :L3000:

 

In my experience, The Sig pro really appreciates tubes because treble is sometimes slightly too edgy/metallic . We all know Utrasone home sound I'm sure :tongue_smile: and  I think tubes does marvel to balance this little edginess.

See also Calyx M with massive storage. There may be headphones that are better on the move, straight out of a DAP, but I've yet to hear them.

Do let us know about the Vali! If it pairs well with the Sig Pro I will pick one up in a heartbeat.

What about new portable headphones like NAD HP50 or B&0 H6 or other hyped headphones ?  They seem highly praised here or there or far less expensive ?  I read many good feedbacks about the Beyerdynamic T70p too.

Had the T70p when they first came out. They are quite nice across the board. Only the treble where a little too much for me. And as they do not fold, they are not really portable. But again quite nice. You might want to give them a listen.

I think Ultrasone should think about up-selling their drivers a bit more, like other companies.

Which other headphones did you compare the SigPro?  Which amp and dac ( or cd player )?  Could be I have a not so recommendable dac / amp combo because I tend to prefer the sound of the

Sennheiser HD650 ( also the HD600 ). Maybe because they are open  I use the Meyer Corda Classic with Nuforce Dac9.  Very good units but perhaps not exactly the right synergy. Don't get me wrong this gear is pretty good but what you describe is  you got the "sound of heaven"........I assume you must have the right amp/ dac combo.  I will get the CEntrance DacMini to compare soon........Let me know what you use.

I don't know about "sound of heaven". :rolleyes: I am enjoying the Sig Pro a lot though. I think my comparison is the Sig Pro driven straight from the cheap Fiio X3 vs. HE-500/LCD-2 driven by the Emotiva/Concero combo or Lyr/Bifrost. I'm not necessarily saying the Sig Pro is better, but there is a certain amount of refinement I don't expect to hear from a closed back small headphone. I think my comment was more about my amazement of what the Sig Pro can accomplish in such a small compact/portable form.

Overall the Sig is not that finicky.  I am surprised you are not getting good results.

 

Perhaps you need to give your ears more time to adjust.  The 600 and 650 are notoriously dark and require some decent amping to really shine, the Sig on the other hand is very much at home on a ipod or a megabuck uber system. 

 

Bottom line.....give them a chance.

Lyr Bifrost works very well for me, ditto HiFi M8. and very good straight out of DX100.

I am going back and forth between the Sig pro and the esw11.  Have both in carts.  Sig pro is a portable right?

Yes, portable as in they fold down neatly and are robust enough to be thrown in a bag and also as in easy enough to drive to stick directly into a phone and any decent DAP will run them well. You'd need a pretty large jacket pocket to put them in (I have done it once or twice...) so there are limits.
