Ultrasone Signature DJ - Page 10

post #136 of 2120

I do not think that it is bigger. She is tiny. She was probably quite purposefully chosen on that basis. Also she's cute.

Lol!! I saw her at the Fujiya DAC show in August. Unfortunately I had already spent 20 mins at the Timelord table (Timelord's the distributor for Ultrasone amongst other big names). Should have gone back to the table again to have a chat with her.

Missed opportunity that!  :-)

I believe they are the same dimensions as Sig Pro.  Based on the video, I am sold on the build quality, but wish more time was spent on the sound signature, although it sounds like one will have the club experience in a headphone, so these are certainly going to be genre specific.  For the price, they need to have the best bass ever in a headphone along with Sig Pro mids and highs.  I'm looking forward to reviews.

Well... the Sig Pros sport a 40mm driver while the Sig Djs are 50mm so maybe they did increase the size of the pads too... at least I hope.

The cups and headband, everything about the design,  looks identical to me except for color and logo.

Well, the M-100 has smaller, somewhat uncomfortable pads, but they sound so good I don't care.  Consider them supra aural for you :)  Maybe the DJ will sound so good, the cups won't matter.

 

Here' what the Sig DJ need to be for me to buy them:

 

  • Mids and highs of the Sig Pro or M-100 (very similar to my ears)
  • Bass of the Audio Technica PRO700MK2

I know this is a high expectation, but if they can't meet this, then what would make them worth $699?

post #146 of 2120

Wouldn't that mean the highs will be sacrificed?

Not necessarily.  While many basshead cans can be dark or at least warm, some can be overly bright with powerful bass like the PRO 900.  The trick is finding the right balance which I would insist on as a consumer at this price point.

Well they seem to isolate well/not leak much sound judging by how little leaked out when she was closing the 2 cups together.  For those that owned/own the Sig Pros, does the isolation seem similar or better?

You can't really judge by that demonstration.  Most closed headphones would react similarly.  The trick is how they isolate on an uneven surface, like the side of one's face.

I'll find out soon enough when I see these next weekend at the Fujiya Autumn Festival. I'm particularly curious though that if the cupsize is the same, but the driver increased, what is sacrificed? Supposedly these are meant to be bassier headphones than the SigPros. But with larger drivers in same sized cups, what's the speculated impact to resonance, internal reflections, volume of air needed, bass decay, etc. There may be some balance Ultrasone could have done by increasing the port size to allow greater movement of air but that may impact isolation too.

Guess I'll find out next weekend.
