ULTRASONE NEW ANNOUNCED HEADPHONE Signature Pro - Page 139

post #2071 of 2085

@M-13  selling your beloved Sig Pro? What are you up to? I'm worried...

post #2072 of 2085

Rofl

 

I love them still. The price doesn't reflect how much I love them. I want to sell them for $1300, but the reality of the market. :D

 

Kasier10 is calling my name... and I can't justify a $1600 headphone without letting something go at this point.

 

It was the Sig Pro or K812, so that wasn't a easy decision for me... at all.

post #2073 of 2085

I can imagine... from time to time I do the same and prune my collection (a bit)... hard decisions to make... but right now I could not part with the K812, so of those two it would in my case also be the Sig Pro. Which of course does not make them a bad headphone...

Okay sale halted cuz they sound too awesome. :p

 

Seriously I was doing a final audio check and then proceeded to jam out for like two hours.

Sig Pro + DX90 with the latest Lurker 2.1.5L firmware = audio heaven. They sound so well balanced/resolving, it's breathtaking.

 

Kaisers can wait a little while longer...

I have the Sig pro here for about two weeks. So I hope the NTS is gone by now. I bought them when I went to a shop here that had a sale on the Grado GS1000i. Most of my headphones are Gradessandros so far. When I went to the shop and listened to the GS1000i I was not impressed. Next to it was the Sig pro and I listened out of curiosity to them. Well, I liked what I heard. So far my experience with closed HP started with the audio technica M50 (could not stand their recessed mids), the motörheadphones iron fist (cool looks), and the beyerdynamic DT1350, which was my portable HP. A great HP, I only had the impression that it lacks some bass. And this is where the Sig pro enters: They ahve a great bass. Until I listened to them I had no idea how much fun there is to hear a good and tight bass. What I like about them is the bass is not getting into the mids, as the midbass hump of my Grado PS500 has on some recordings. The bass is there and independent. The mids are clean and crispy. Guitars sounds great. The higs can be sometimes a problem. Maybe this is most of the times a problem with the recording. For example REM "MTV umplugged" Micheal Stipes voice is very silibiant ( So central rain). On the older REM recordings his voice is fine. And Tom Waits sounds amazing. OK he sounds amazing from most headphones because he is Tom Waits but with the sig pro his voice sounds less close to my ears than with the Grados but I like so much what I hear, the bass, the guitars....

Sonic Youth the demo track of their goo album also sounds  amazing, as does UME "Monuments".

I am very happy with these HPs. Most of the listening is done with either my ipod touch or from my CDP marantz CD6003. With my headphone amp the canor TP10 they don't do so well. They sound less neutral and more V shaped. Next thing when I will have time is to connect them to my old creek obh 21 SE...

Yep. Sig pro is a great headphone but not forgiving at all. and it's very sensitive to upstream gear. I'm surprise your canor don' synergize well with the SP. i would have bet some money on the combo.

 On the bright side at least you have had 6 more months enjoyment out of them.

 

Assuming of course that the problem you had with them has been resolved by now.

post #2081 of 2085
Very true. The only issue I have with them is the comfort level. They clamp a bit too much for me and the headband is tough on the top of your head if using them portable walking. Sound is great though, and the comfort level is livable just no where near the Ed8 or hd800.

 I find the Sig Pro comfortable enough but I do agree that the 800 just seems to disappear when wearing.

post #2083 of 2085
When I had the Sig I put a Sennheiser 650 headband pad on them and it solved the headband comfort issue.

Cups were still uncomfortable to me but at least the headband issue has a solution.

Got an email today and I spotted this, thought I would share with the class. Look a little familiar?

http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=115&cp_id=11504&cs_id=1150403&p_id=605050&seq=1&format=2

The similarities look to be aesthetic, though. It has a completely different driver. For a second I thought maybe they got the shell from the same plant that makes Ultrasone's, but looking at it closer it has several differences. Plus, the reviews say the headband is too big and loose, and that's never been a problem with Sig Pros!

I have spent now some time with the Sig Pro and I have to admit my other headphones don't get much listening time.  I really enjoy these. The mids can be recessed but than I come from Grados, which have an emphasis on the mids. But compared to the Sig Pro the Grados sound a bit grainy. The Sig Pro is smooth compared to them. Again this depends very much on the recording of the album. I had some very nice moments with good recorded CDs but others where less pleasent. The interesting thing is after listening to those albums with the Sig Pro, I heard the flaws of the album also with my other headphones...

For the comfort: I had in the beginning some problems with their clamping force but now my head seems to be used to them...
