Ultrasone Signature DJ - Page 147

post #2191 of 2201
I've heard the pro but not the DJ. It was a touch on the bright side IMO but not harsh. It also had an analytical quality, very revealing of mastering noise.

DJ has more treble, less mids. I think as a result of the diminished mids the soundstage on the DJ's sounds a bit wider as well. I love both these phones tho:)

about detail, you should consider that sig dj has more treble, so whilst both have the same amount of details, which is max amount possible, sig dj will make details more obvious.

 

about how much you will like the treble, you should give a listen to both, sig dj is on having more treble, whilst th900 not enough, depends on what you will like.

 

as a point of comparation, sig dj treble was more friendly to me than hd800 treble, because hd800 was more harsh, whilst being less musical.

 

if you can try, sig dj has the exact same signature as ie800 from sennheiser, which i do truly consider a god-iem.

 

durability wise, and portability wise, both sig dj and th 900 should fare the same.

 

isolation, i think that i would give a sig dj a better rating, due to ultrasone in general isolation better. [was the best isolation i heared from all headphones i heared, even though most were open, those which were closed did not come close, this can also be a bad point depending on the situation]



Thanks. Why do rank them the same for durability? I'd think that the TH900 would be easy to scratch over time, especially if I set them directly on my desk (which I often do at work because it would be weird to have a headphone stand in my cube). If I don't have to worry about it, that would be a plus. The Sig Pro on the other hand is sturdy plastic.

not better, but more suited for your tastes would be a way to put it, depending on what you are searching for.

i think that both would scratch if put up with materials that are strong, the plastic on sig dj might not scratch ever, but there is a plate made of glass in there.

 

i really do think that you should choose based on your audio tastes and not on anything else.

Good comparison. But the DJ would take more of a beating to do significant damage to the can - dropping them won't likely do too much. I don't feel the same about the TH900. The TH900 is not close to being as portable as the DJ, as it leaks a lot of sound and isolation is very lackluster - let alone the fact the DJ folds and goes flat too.

I found the th900 much more comfortable than the djs although the th900s build quality doesnt feel as rugged and sturdy. Soundwise it really comes down to personal preference, both sound very good.

is there any way around to make sig dj more comfortable?

I'd be less concerned about scratching than I would be about the hinge mechanism. The Fostex just seems fragile at that spot. But if it's going to be staying in one spot it's probably not a major issue.

Edit: FWIW, if you're going to be stationary I'd probably lean TH900. If you can demo a pair that would obviously be best. Don't know how well you remember the Sig Pro sound, but if you like the Fostex significantly more it's safe to say you'd choose it over the DJ as well.

I put a Sennheiser HD650 headband pad on my Sig Pro (same chassis as DJ) and it helped a lot.  My problem was the pad comfort.....................
