Have you tried them off a decent amp (portable or desktop) ?

yep, both on my portable DAC/AMP and desktop DAC/AMP. I prefer my Pro 900 as my closed back 'sone.

I think I know what's been keeping me back from loving these. It's the midrange. My Pro 900 has a much more recessed midrange and my Denon 2000 has it too.

 

I'm not used to midrange being forward compared to highs and bass like this. This is also why I perceive the soundstage as smaller. I hear vocals and mids popping out more with these. I think a fostex might be more down my alley, hopefully a compromise between very recessed mids and more forward mids?!

 

But I mean, I can see the appeal in the sound signature. It's just different. Certainly if you come from this type of signature, you'd also see the effect in reverse ("Pro 900 mids are far too recessed!") That viewpoint would make more sense to me now that I hear the differences in sound.

 

Keep in mind, I started with the Pro 900 (first main headphone), and I've had it awhile now so that signature became my norm, the standard I probably judge other headphone by. 

 

Well, the more I'm listening to the DJ, I like it. It's a good HP, it's just not really my tastes as they've evolved to today.

 

For the moment, I've pulled them off the F/S. I'll stop drowning the board with my amateur stupid realizations sometime soon.

If you feel that the SigDJ has too much midrange for your tastes, I have a feeling that the Fostex TH-600s and TH-900s to have even too much more. To me  the SigDJs have a more pulled back midrange than those other Fostex TH-x00's. The difference though is that the Fostex sound more spacious 'cos they're leaky. So they're not great for isolating. But if you're in a reasonably quiet environment and require little need for isolation, the TH-x00 series have quite a classy sound.

 

Q: if you like something that's very U/V shaped, did you consider giving the Sennheiser Momentums a shot?

You need to be more patient little Padavan.....

I don't know...maybe I'm the only one..but I owned a pair of PRO 900's for a few months before I got the Sig PRO's and the Sig DJ's and I found them absolutely unlistenable and I really gave them a try. The highs were positively searing the top of my head off the rest of my body. I also found their much ballyhoo'd bass to be flatulant and wobbly. The Sig DJ's are from a different universe. It's not even possible to compare. It's like comparing rotten apples to valencia oranges.

I've decided to go for the TH-900. Most of my stuff (besides Pro 900) is now up for sale to help fund the Fostex. I'm not really interested in the Senn. Momentum. I want a serious upgrade, something that will really give me Hi-fi.

 

 

I'm glad I tried the SIG DJ. I have always wanted to. It's a great sounding headphone, no doubt, but I think Th-900 will be the better fit. I certainly can't afford to keep them both (at this point in time), so SIG DJ has to sell along with some of my other headphones.

Just got the Sig DJ's today, they, are, amazing!!!!! So far

 

I understand what Twerk means though, I personally much prefer the Sig DJ's to the Pro750. Not sure how different they are from the Pro900... anyways, the Sig DJ has much more punch and they reach high volume without fatigue, reminds me of some good studio monitors and ribbon tweeters (adam audio).

 

The most obvious change is SPL/Distortion free ratio, bass thump and deepness, although lot of people over exagerate it, its really tight and solid but is very neutral still, it doesnt drown anything, and midrange indeed!! the voices are finally really clear and forward.

 

Compared to the Pro750, it is much more neutral in terms of frequency response. I find it much lot fun to listen to and more involving with the music/movies emotionally. It has lot less ''3d'' effect compared to the Pro750 though.

 

Im wondering how they would sound with an ifi iCan with the 3d effect on! hmm

 

Im not using any amplifier, this is straight out of the Matrix X-Sabre

I agree with your observations, 18inch. It is that 3D effect (I consider that soundstage) that I love on my Pro 900 that isn't quite as noticeable on SIG DJ. What you said about vocals and a very clear midrange is on point with my observations as well. Glad you enjoy them, let us know more as you listen.

LOL, good one!!:D

post #1604 of 2023

what kind of amplifier you guys use with the Sig Dj? Theres way to many choices and dunno if i should just get a ifi ican micro or save up and get soloist sl or even the graham ultra linear diamond? i really like the build of the graham though, something about that knob, cant keep my eyes off of it, kinda like when a woman's hard nipple goes through wtv shes wearing...

You don't even need an amp for it really.

Right now I'm using a Schiit Magni and really if I go more than 10 o'clock I'll probably start getting ringing in my ears (using AK100 MKII as source).

On my Soloist SL, the same. And really apart from more tightness in the bass, sound output is actually not really all that changed.

(i.e. these Sig DJs are not like cans like the Alpha Dogs which excel with more power/better amps...)

 

Just my .02 cents.
