Excellent. Thank you for the reply. I am leaning more towards the DJs at the moment, but I still have some questions.
-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.
