Hmm, interesting. I've never head that before (soundstage being due to prominent treble). Well I won't argue with you on the SigPro/DJ. I haven't heard the SigDJ, but the SigPro is a step up from the 900 in many ways except bass impact so saying it's superior to the 900 is understandable at least. I just can't see the 550s being any better than the 900s having heard both but to each his own I guess. If you enjoy them more than you did the 900s, that's great as they are cheaper.

The Sig DJ is the logical step up from the PRO 900 regarding bass. Same quantity but much better quality. A true audiophile basshead can. The PRO 550 is better than the PRO 900 when you cannot stand the treble peaks that the PRO 900 has for a lot of people including me. If this is not your issue the PRO 900 is your route.

I usually just EQ the pro 900 on songs that don't need the bass or shiny treble. I find it works great and the quickness of the drivers are still utilized over the lower models, but some people are really averse to EQing for some reason. To each his own.

isn't this thread about the pro 2900?

it is always the same scenario:
1 - someone asks a question (usually 2900 vs. 900 bass, soundstage or something)
2 - and it ends up with signature-pro/dj evangelism.

we all know that shizzle but don't have the budget, so the signature gospel doesn't help us.

in any case, at around $1000, i would save for a HD 800...

I have to agree.
I am late to the party but for any can to approach the HD800s in both signature and soundstage, this may be the only one,
Although this one has more percieved bass extension.
I have herd a few other open cans and none came close in soundstage, maybe the new shures, but we're all softer except for the Beyers.
Where as this can has that trebles detail and energy like the hd800.

I just attained mine so I need more listening to come to any final descisions, but these are my initial impressions.

Edit:
I used to have an Pro 900 and can't understand why it would even be mentioned here as it is so different.
Personally I feel the Pro 900 was pure mud, but that's another story.
Also I had the 750 and DJ1 And both were nice but we're not lively.

While these cans sound very lively like my ed8.

You would be surprised how much the earpads from the PRO 2900 would help the PRO 900 to get civilized. Beside being open / close, the biggest difference are the shallower earpads of the PRO 2900. Had them both for some months before I got the Sig Pro/DJ. Played around with pads also from my PRO 550. Very interesting. Pads rule!!

So the 2900 pads were the preferred pads?
And the 900 pads actually we're the thicker ones ?
Hmm ok because I have two different pads and I just switched to the shallower and suddenly slight sibilance gone ?(!)
post #398 of 402
Yes the sibilance is reduced and the bass gets from muddy uncontrolled to more civilized, but still very strong.

The 2900 has a very deep and full sounding bass. If you want to hear the bass, 2900 has got the quality and quantity.
