ULTRASONE NEW ANNOUNCED HEADPHONE Signature Pro - Page 133

post #1981 of 1988

$65 dollars, free shipping, Amazon Prime US. Picked one up. 

 

And Rakuten should ship to UK. 

 

Edit: Also have an SDJ willing to sell, or trade for SP. 

 

Edit 2: dallan, I want to know which of the two you would keep (SP vs Ed8) - having owned both! Maybe wise to keep to yourself, however. PM me! It was a tough call for me. 

 

Edit 3: Seriously, anywhere to get them new these days for less than $1300 :blink: ?? RMC spoiled me.

Referencing Edit 2 - I know you asked Dallan which he would keep but since I've owned both I figured why not weigh in.  Edition 8 all the way.  No contest to me.............comfort was much better, sound overall preferable as well.  The perfect portable in my mind, even with all the bling.

RMC is still in business (or in business again). Check them out ;)

Nice, email sent. Ultrasone got nasty with them and forced them to stop selling. So either RMC agreed to sell at the MAP price, or Ultrasone realized how many units RMC could move : )

Ultrasone got a new U.S.A. distributor. The discounts are no longer as steep, but they're still very nice. And umm.. let's avoid making direct dollar $$$ amount posts here. I don't want to hurt RMC (I may need to buy an Edition 8 from them ;))

I wouldn't post dollar amounts for that reason. But feel free to PM me a heads up on their current price standing! : )

And about this: I wonder what I would think now. I do believe the SP to be a more balanced and better sounding headphone, but that doesn't mean it's more fun. This wasn't a concept I was privy to when I owned both. I just remember having loads of fun with the Ed8, and I am wondering if I am missing that to a certain extent. 

 

I remember the mids of the Ed8 sounding paper thin by comparison, and the highs being crazy hot, but not Pro 900 hot. Kinda want to try them again!

I really go back and forth between which I like better sound wise but I will say, the Ed8 is clearer but less balanced. The lack of winning that balance battle plays into it being a portable because you need the emphasis on sub bass and highs to make it work better in outside environment. The ed8 is also way more comfortable and less obtrusive. I think it stands out less because it conforms to your head. I trade off though and it is not to noisy in my nieborhood so the balanced sound of the sigpros and the fact that they are my new toy do have me grabbing them a bit more I have to admit. Glad I don't have to choose which to keep.
