Thank you Mortalcoil! You were one of the ones who really helped me decide to go for it. For that, I thank you. I'll be sure to find my way to the TH-900 board when once I get them and have a good listen.

 Glad to help TWerk.

 

 I hope they live up to your lofty expectations.  I am sure they will, enjoy them. :beerchug:

The Sig DJ's are well within my favourite top ten of cans I own and currently the number one can I use the most.

I'm pretty blown away by just how good these cans are just plugged directly into my iPad, without any amp and these are one of the few cans that gave me the WOW feel immediately from first hearing them.

For me, the Signature DJ's are truly a remarkable and versatile headphone that's up there with the best of the best of closed and open back cans I'm fortunate to own.

Listening to music through the Sig DJ's is almost addictive and so compelling because of this to naturally reach for these cans first over my other cans which are a bit redundant at the moment.

This has got to be new can honeymoon syndrome or something, but I'm not fighting it, just going with the flow of it as it's too enjoyable to turn down - lol biggrin.gif

Anybody else just hit it off with amazement of how good these cans sound, like love at first hear? smily_headphones1.gif

I feel the same way (and always have) about my Ultrasone Pro 900. No doubt, my first true love in this headphone hobby. It's such a fun, visceral listen with that amazing bass impact.
 
Some prefer SIG DJ, other dig PRO 900, but at the end of the day, we should all enjoy whichever does it for us.   To me, they are both great headphones.:beerchug:

I've noticed the 900 has a strong following of appreciators like your good self, so I'm intrigued to check it out at some point smily_headphones1.gif

It seems to be a love or hate affair. The very extreme V shape they exhibit works extremely well for some of my music, but isn't going to be the greatest for everything. I really like them for EDM. They also work great for gaming. Your Sig DJ has more forward mids, no doubt about it.

 

If you ever want to trade one of yours with me (for a week or two) to audition them, let me know! It might be something I'd be open to doing, especially with your epic collection of headphones!!!

Hey guys, just watching "21 Jump Street" movie on my iPad Air with my Sig DJ's and thought I didn't have them plugged in properly as the sound appeared to be coming outside of the headphones as well as in, so took cans off to check and - no - they're plugged in properly - wooah - what's that about?

Pretty darn cool biggrin.gif

ULTRASONE broke the mould when they made these bad boys for sure cool.gif

Also - no amp - just plugged directly into iPad - crazy! wink.gif

My Sig DJ fanboy application is in the post L3000.gif

I'm guessing (hoping) that the Sig DJ's are a lot less bright than the ED8's? I had a pair of ED8's I sold as they were way too bright for me and the low end had no punch it was all sub-bass and no mid-bass. Are the Sig Pro's even less bright than the Sig DJ's or do they just have a lot less bass? I'm guessing for EDM and Chillout the Sig DJ's will probably be the best? I really like the T5P's since they aren't sibilant or bright but they don't have much bass. I really like my Audo Technica ES10s and I'm hoping that the Sig DJ's are an enhanced version of that? The ES10s are the max in terms of brightness I can handle.

Sig DJ's are less bright than the ED8's and the Sig PRO's are indeed less bright than the Sig DJ's. For EDM and Chillout the DJ's are your ticket:)

Thank you! I just hope they are not too bright for me. The ES10s are at the limit of brightness, they aren't any brighter than ES10s are they? How is the bass compared to the ES10s? I would go for the Sig Pro's but they will probably not be as much fun and for sure will have much less bass...

They may be a bit brighter than ES10:

This is the reason I haven't jumped the gun on Signature DJs yet. Gladly report how you find the highs when you get them. It's not that I cannot "handle" emphasized highs, it's just that I can't get into liking a pushed back midrange, I want weighty thick instruments/vocals etc which doesn't happen if highs are pushed more forward than the highs. The first bump is around 3.5kHz which is a particularly sensitive area for for the human ear, my beloved Q40 have a tiny tiny bit dip instead of a bump in that region which I appriciate.

Despite the graphs, the ES10's are just not in the same class as the Sig PRO's or the Sig DJ's hence their cheaper price tag. They are "fuzzy" in comparison. It's kind of like how you see when you're near-sighted and take your glasses off. The highs in the Sig PRO's may be more than the ES10's but they're super clean. The bass is on a whole other level.
post #1648 of 2456

Yes, the graphs mean little. The graphs don't measure resolution of the sound. It's like 480p vs 1080p. They only give a basic idea of sound signature. I really think you have to listen to things first and not rely on the graphs.

 

Let your ears be the judge, not your eyes.

Plus, if the headphone doesn't match your preference, you just resell it. That is exactly what I did with my SIG DJ. Why play a guessing game based on graphs?

I wouldn't have known it wasn't the ideal one without personally listening to it.

I'm sure I would love the sound of the Fostex TH-900's from everything I've seen but ALL my headphone listening is portable and on-the-go. I just can't see wearing a piece of expensive Japanese furniture on my head with little isolation on the subway and train :)
