Is the Bass different in any way? If so, how? 


Everything about the Sig DJ is better than the PRO 900 and even just about any other headphone I have heard.  For my taste, they need zero EQ and are as close to sonic perfection across the range as I have heard.  They are also fantastic for nearly every genre, not just bass-heavy music.

 

The bass presence and impact is absolutely there, even cleaner and tighter based on memory.  Vocals give me chills.  Instruments are authentic.  Highs are perfection- extend as far as they should with excellent detail and no sibilance.  Soundstage is enveloping.  I can't say enough positive about the Sig DJ and I found the PRO 900 unbearable due to the harsh highs after a short listen.

 

The V-Moda M-100 gets an honorable mention as it has some similarity to the sound of the Sig DJ, but the Sig DJ just does everything better.

I'm Googling around for Sig Pro DJs and I'm seeing two completely different labels in the black and white. Are these the same Model?

The top (all black) is the Signature PRO that I mentioned.  The black and white model below is the Signature DJ.  I have listened to both.  It's funny, but the Signature PRO came out first and my first thought was how fantastic they sounded, but I wished they had more bass, then the Signature DJ came out which is actually $300 less than the Signature PRO and IMO better looking.  They use the same housing, but the Signature DJ has larger 50mm drivers vs. 40mm for the Signature PRO and had DJ tuning vs. audiophile tuning.

They're different models with different drivers, the Signature DJ has 50mm drivers while the Pro's have 40mm drivers. I went down to B&H to audition the DJ's, but couldn't unfortunately. They're in stock, but you can't listen to them.

agreed, Sony XB 700 has about the most sub bass you can get [the JVC HX-1000 has about the same as teh xb 700 with the addition of mids lol]

 

I own a MODDED xb700 which has even Tighter Sub Bass than stock and a little better mid bass n highs

 

Non the less the xb700 is a BASS CANNON, e.e

Well, depending on the seller, you may not be able to return them and would need to resell on Ebay if you don't like them.  While I can't imagine a basshead audiophile not loving them, they are an expensive purchase, so I feel obligated to say this is just my opinion and my taste may not be your taste.

I think I'm gonna go for it if I can find them somewhere with a return policy. Or I may just take the chance and buy them without one if I have to. You guys seem pretty confident in them. My only concern is they have to have TONS of BASS along the lines of the Q40s. Sounds like they do... I'm very tempted, it just scares me to know that if I don't like them I'll have to sell them myself to someone else. On the other hand, these sound like they could very well be the ultimate Basshead 'phone for me. Looks like I can get them for about a grand on ebay. That's the best price I have so far without ordering from Japan.

I would call to confirm their return policy:

psh I wish I had a grand floating around to buy ULTIMATE bass head cans with,

 

for less than a grand there is the Jvc Hx 1000, which is apprently a refined Xb 700 [with wooden cups and OMG mids]

I get the feeling that we are probably very much on the same page. I'm a Basshead through and through. Even my cars all had subwoofers in them and I always went for clean sound, not BOOM. I like tight, controlled, deep and punchy. I HATE Muddy. I don't care for ultra heavy bass stuff like Rap, but I love me almost any type of Electronic Music and Dubstep if I'm looking for Bass. I also listen to most all of the other Genres but my HE500s have never let me down for those.  I like 'em for electronic too and use them quite a bit for that, but let's get real, they can't produce the kind of sonic pressure that something like a Q40 can. I'm looking for Brute Force with a Bow Tie. tongue.gif

Nice Nice, I feel you there. I do though like a laid back slighty bloated bass some times. mostly when I'm driving. Enough force that I feel it hit against my pants leg :D but sot enough to not drown on the vocals or highs

 

Still though I love my dt 880s for the OMG OMEGA tight bass. After getting the 990 which isn't as tight but still DAMN tight I don't thin I can go back to closed can bass q.q

Am I seeing this right?  About $1200 for the Sig DJ?  Or am I seeing a different one.  I'm confused......

Every headphone I auditioned prior to the Sig DJ left me wanting more or feeling like something was missing (including the Q40).  Owning the Sig DJ, I can't imagine a more satisfying listening experience.

 

P.S.  I have a Klipsch reference subwoofer in my home theater that weighs about 75 lbs. and has a 12" driver in the front with a matching 12"  passive radiator on the back.  I love my bass.
