I was dumb. That's not on Ultrasone it's on me but the pricing ...mystifies me? I shoulda known....now I do.

Its not about the brand, and i agree the build quality is wierd because of the plastic build, but im just saying i have heard that the signature djs have about the same amount of bass as the th900s.

Dont try to get them though xD

You tend to have bad luck with great cans :3
Especially if u have problems with slogic ._.

No headphone is for everyone.

Hawaii bad boy which XB series cans have you tried, the older series or the new ones? I ask because some of the stuff you said may apply to the newer series but not the older, it's generally agreed that the older series(XB300, 500, 700, 1000) is miles better than the new one.

do alpha pads fit well on the q40? They look a lot bigger than I though. For some reason I kept thinking that they were on ears. I just got mine back from the person I sold them to and am eager to try them when they get here. I shouldnt have bought the beyer pads.

Hmm, details? :D

 

Makes me wonder if I should sell mine for some TH900s(since I hear they're pretty much better at everything other than portability).

Very rarely does expensive = more bass.

 

Almost always it's the opposite way around, with very few exceptions.

Apparently they fit very well and transform the Q40 to an entirely new level of audio goodness. I sure hope they fit as I also ordered the pads.

I've actually compared the two. I prefer the TH900 but the cable on it sucks. It's bulky, non removable, and the strain relief does not inspire confidence.

 

They are both great headphones but the TH900 I found has better soundstage and slightly better bass. It's just a "fuller" sound.

I would definitely also say the TH900 beats Signature DJ in everything but portability.

Same with the th600, but to a lesser extent.

I am SO fine staying where i am at though, portability is a must for me biggrin.gif

Now she's a headphone junkie and this was her diary...notice the closing line.

I'm sorry God:D  
... She's thirteen and you got her in the habit of listening to headphones?... GOOD JOB! Over in America, the best headphones I've EVER seen a girl use is the apple Ibuds, or cheap dollar store ones. The best I've seen a guy use is the old beats studios... They nonetheless suck in all aspects of comparison to the 55's, including balance, bass impact and quality, build, comfort, design, mids and treble etc... Lets see here... I've had 40+ people ask me why I carry headphones instead of ear buds, why I don't have beats instead, and what that box thing is that I have my cans hooked into... I say its an amp, and they instantly ask what an amp is. I turn the volume all the way up, and they get a surprised expression, like they didn't think headphones could do that that. They then say, "Is that better than the beats???". I say "Is that seriously a question, or are you just not educated on quality sound?". If they have beats, they usually say, " bet my headphones would do better if I hooked them up to that box thing.", so I say go ahead and watch as they try to match my cans volume with Solo HD's or studios, then die of laughter after I hear that ckkckkckcckkkcccckkkkkckcrackle pop crackle that they emit at about half volume on the amp, and they keep going until 6, which at that point the song is distorted to unrecognizable levels, when mine have none at 8, and get a lot louder than theirs do at any given volume on the knob. Yet they try to shrug it off and say that the amp is broken, or that my headphones are made to be that loud, or that the beats still sound better, which at this point I ask them to put their money where their mouth is and do a sound quality comparison. For rock music, beats don't have the meaty, in your face feel. 55's do. For dubstep, the beats only flick your head a little. 55's pound.

... I went to WalMart today, and asked the person who looked the most technologically adept what the best headphones are that they carry, and he said the beats pros... He instantly tried to sell me them. I said no thanks and asked another person, and they said the JVC HA-M55X's. I said, i have those, but my amp isn't charged right now, so they are at home(note: i wasn't going to buy any cans, i was looking around... Not that WalMart has a good selection... But... You know. Might find a holy grail among the fake golden chalices!) and we instantly struck up a conversation, seeing as how he was a basshead/audiophile like me... I like to think of an audiophile who likes to look at quality audio, and use quality audio, and are willing to spend some cash on it. I don't think of an audiophile as a person who only listens to flat frequency responsive headphones, but rather as a person who cares enough about audio to do research, spend some money and time looking into the cans, and not buying cans just for looks or the brand name. This could be a number of people, like bassheads, music producers etc... Anyone agree with me on this point?

They fit great on Q40's, and do make that headphone sing. More so than any other headphone I've tried them on which numbers about 6.

Not to my ears. Not close. In response to Sig DJ's having as much bass as TH900's.

Agreed, the stock cable on all the stock Fostex/Denon line is not ergo. Which is why on both my TH900 and D7000 I have this Q French Silk cable.
