Ultrasone Signature DJ - Page 82

post #1216 of 2120

50% Iphone (5 in my case) is pretty safe with the Signature DJ.

I usually just plug it straight into my phone to see how loud it is at 50%, then plug it into my amp and adjust so that its just a little quieter (because it naturally sounds a bit quieter at the same volume because of the extra clarity)

Then i just listen at 50%... Under that the bass seems to get quieter faster in comparation to the treble ect.


When my ears start ringing or the bass distorts, I am listening too loud :wink_face:

 

In all seriousness, I think it is about your personal comfort level, but listening levels should probably be lower than "goosebump" levels and somwhere around a conversational level, as if the singer was singing in front of you without a microphone, but that's just my theory.

I am listening to Lorde with the Sig DJ- amazing synergy and one other thought.........Adele who??

 

I don't say this about too many artists, but if you are a Sig DJ owner and don't add her to your collection, you are doing yourself a disservice.

fegefeuer and Craigster75, thanks biggrin.gif

I used to listen at 30% on my hfi 580's... But the signature dj's are simply seductive. Lol.

Does the th900 really hit harder than/as hard as the sig dj, or just more bass?

I find it hard to believe, as they are semi-open.
post #1221 of 2120
Well, lacking in isolation anyways. Especially compared to the dj's as i have heard
post #1222 of 2120
I think im still gonna try and get the mstage, but after that ill spend a few hundred on a vintage amp, out of curiosity and so i can still have my "moveable" amp as well.
post #1223 of 2120
Vintage amps should not go for hundreds, they should go for tenth of dollars. Or are you shooting for Macintosh only. Maybe those would not even have a headphone out....

Agreed. You can get a great vintage amp for less than $100.

Would a <100$ vintage amp compete with the mstage? If so, im in biggrin.gif

Only problem is finding one. In good condition.

Can't say since I haven't heard an mstage but compared to a Schiit Magni it was sooooooooooooooooo much better in all ways, especially bass, when compared.   Now, I know a Magni is lower end but I've read a number of guys input on the vintage amp/receiver thread echo my belief, that vintage is better than most headphone amps (with the caveat it being a vintage with the headphone out fed off the amp, not an opamp).  Especially for the cost.  $100 buys you a Magni, or a killer vintage low wpc amp.

These might be the perfect portable headphones for my tastes. But I can't get over the looks, I really dislike... If only they were black like SigPro or similar to pro900 or something.. (or even the DJ1 are not as offensive IMO).

I agree with posts a few pages back that the pro900 looked good, were super comfy and well built I felt, pity they were so piercing and metallic.

 

Anyone tried the spray paint that was joked about? :P Painting a $1000 headphone would be hilarious

 

I've also decided the t5p are too big to truly be a portable and I fear I may find them lacking in bass for EDM.

Thus I think I will try out the M-100 and maybe the new Beyer t51p. Getting great reviews and the price is right, so I'll get rid of my Dt1350 as the comfort is apparently far superior on t51p now and not fiddly for fit/seal..

 

Still, it all feels like too much compromise with closed/portable cans... I just want a portable isolating version of my TH600 :(

I own Sig DJ and M-100, so we probably have similar taste.  I actually like the looks of the Sig DJ.  I use both as portables, but my go-to can is always the Sig DJ becasue their sound is so much more refined.  After attending a recent headphone meet, I am convinced there is not another headphone made today that sounds better for pop, dance, EDM or hip hop.

So if you prefer the looks of the Sig Pro, what keeps you from trying that one. The difference is that it has less mid bass than the Sig Dj, but as I think by now, reaches deeper. So the bass is not very pronounced but still well presented.

I think the signature dj's are beautifull.

I actually prefer how they look over the pros... Atleast from pics :3

Also i just had a "there is no spoon" moment, except instead of a spoon its my earcups, and instead of them bending it was my mind.

I felt like the sound wasnt coming from my earcups. Like it was flying around me. Soundstage up to this point for me has just been inside my head, pretty cool experience.

Also if i sound mellow about it, i feel like crying! So perfect!
