Nah, not that. I've owned the Ed8LEs for 9 months and am familiar and have grown accustomed to Ultrasone S-Logic ear placement. So rules that out. I'm going to take the SigPros to the shop tomorrow and test it against another SigPro to see if the one the distributor loaned me's dodgy. If it is, then my SigDJ impressions/review won't have a reference, that's all.
Talking about S-Logic, this may interest you guys (yes I was attempting to do some SigPro/SigDJ testing today - but ended up taking pix instead) :-
L: SigPro R: SigDJ
The SigDJ opening is much bigger than the SigPro - I'm sure it's not just 'cos of the driver size difference but for other sonic tuning too (the bass, etc.).
Well, I guess it's not S-logic :(
The edition 8 had the same inconsistency issue, some of them had a really forward midrange, while other ones had a hollow midrange. I hope the sig dj/sig pro doesn't have the same problem. Oh, and since you were testing both, which do you think is better for hard genres like rock and metal? And did the midrange in the Sig DJ seem a bit more recessed because of the bass?
