Ultrasone Signature DJ - Page 74

-Is the glass used on the Signature DJ the same as the Sig Pros? And how scratch resistant is the glass? One of my main complaints about the Pro 900 is that it looks great, but the aluminum is extremely easy to scratch and inevitably will look bad as it gets more scratched over time. Is the glass scratch resistant or can it still be scratched with keys, sharp objects, etc? 

-Are the pads on the Signature line easy to switch out like the Pro 900s? What mechanism do they use? 

-How loud does the Signature DJ get? I am not trying to blow out my ear drums, but I simply want to know with an amp (ie: FiiO E17) how loud they can get compared to the average headphone.

Thanks for your help guys. I want to make sure I'm making the correct ~$1,000 purchase. 

FYI I have the Pro900, had the Sig Pro.

To pietcux's point about bass level compared to the Pro900, he is right about the Sig Pro not having the bass of the Pro900. Not even close.

To your pad question - no, they not only aren't speed switch style, I'm not sure they are easily removable in the traditional sense (have read they are dual sided taped) and replacements are north of $200........

Glass is very tough and I saw little chance of scratching it.

The thing about the Pro900 that is so nice is the bass, the pads are swappable (I put a set of Alpha pads on mine and talk about comfy and a universal fit removable cable. I use a V-Moda cable in mine. The Sig Pro cable, while removable, is a design on the phone side that is not easily swappable. I'd guess the DJ is the same.

I have wanted to hear the DJ to compare but no stores carry it.

The pads are not glued. They can be pulled carefully from the edge that holds them on place. It is just like Beyerdynamic pads work. No speedswitch, but I did interchange the pads between the PRO and theDJ with very lttle efford. And the vinyl pads from the HFI 580 to 780 also work on the Sinatures. They are the same base model.

I am planning on buying a high end set of Ultrasones that are closed and great at sound isolation. I currently own the Pro 900 and am trying to decide between the Edition 8 Romeo with detachable cables or the Signature DJ. I really do not find my Pro 900's harsh on the highs like everyone talks about. I have recabled them with ALO Audio 22 gauge SXC which really improves the sound quality in my own humble opinion. Does anyone have any advice on which I should choose?

PS: RMC Audio is now selling Ultrasone headphones again.

The SIGNATURE DJ is the logical step up from the PRO 900. It is better in all aspects. The ED8 hss less bass, that is for sure. But as I never heard it myself I cannot comment about the rest.

Haven't heard the DJ but believe pietcux is correct about the bass. I have the Pro900 and the Edition 8. The only problem with the Sig Pro line is comfort to ME. Had the Sig Pro and the ear pads after a while would hurt. Edition 8 no such issue. Bass on Ed 8 is good but not at Pro900's level.

Thanks pietcux and Oregonian for the reply. Does the Signature DJ ear pads set on the ear or is there plenty of room for my ears to fit inside the ear pads? Oregonian, besides the bass what other differences do you hear between the Pro 900 and edition 8. Is the midrange or vocals better on the edition 8?

The pads are around ear. Inner dimensions in mm:
Height: 60
Width: 50
Depth: 16

I love the Pro900 so there's no bias for me on either.  The Ed 8 is a better portable and other than that the Pro900 is as good again TO ME. 

 

Mids may be a bit better in Ed 8.  Sig series are over ear but my Sig Pro still hurt my ears after 45 min.

Thanks again Pietcux and Oregonian for the info. Will probably end up getting the Edition 8 Romeos but may end up having to wait till tax return time to get them since they are so expensive. Also will probably buy the Cypher Labs Theorem 720 DAC for it in the next few months.

What kind of music do you prefer?

Hey guys, so its gonna take longer than i expected to get the sig dj, (try 1 and a half months) so i was just wondering, what difference is there in signature between the sig dj and the th900's?

As i pretty much only listen to edm... I would prefer more mid bass and treble, and i would also prefer speedy bass as well to lots o slow sub bass. Bass impact is also very important (im guessing the dj wins here)

I think it has been discussed before here:
