I've been reading reviews and canvassing opinion on a new headphone purchase for a few days now, and think I've narrowed it down to one of these three:
Ultrasone Pro 900
I've decided against open phones, so these are the three closed cans that have caught my attention! Any and all opinions on these 3 and how they compare to each other will be very much appreciated.
For reference I'm including my planned usage from an earlier post here:
In terms of music, I have a pretty broad taste, but in order of preference:
1. Classical (cello heavy stuff in particular) & Classic Rock (Hendrix/Zeppelin/Pink Floyd).
2. Electronic Chill (Thievery corporation/Fragile State/Cafe del Mar).
3. Early Chemical Brothers type heavier electronic.
4. Easy listening jazz style stuff, (nina simone/sarah vaughan/django reinhardt/joe pass etc).
I use iTunes from my MacBook Pro, into B&W MM1 speakers for home listening. I have an iPod classic, 5g and iPhone 4 for portable, with a Fiio E17 amp (I may upgrade this at some point in the future, but not for at least a year).
All my music is 256kbps AAC minimum, or much higher rate apple lossless.
For all the music types above. I plan on using it through the output on the MM1 when at my desk but need to run silent, so the dac in that will drive them.
When not at my desk, I will be using them from one of my MacBook/iPod/iPhone and I will be driving them through the E17 amp.
Very occasionally I may use them raw into the MacBook/iPod/iPhone.
