Very true, and until anyone spends some true quality time (meaning months) with the Sig Pro its totally unfair to compare the two hps.  Just as I cannot really comment on the M-100.

 

Not to offend the M-100 fanbois out there (I admit I may be a bit of a Sig Pro fanbois), but it is clearly a hp designed to attract the Beats generation. Nothing wrong with that.

 

LOL ...engage flack jacket.popcorn.gif

I think months for evaluation might be excessive and you may be misinformed or making a false assumption if you think the sound of the M-100 remotely resembles Beats- ouch.

I wonder if Ultrasone is less than enthusiastic to provide these to RMC based on the discounted pricing.  While Ultrasone can move more units through them, they may have image concerns with a lower price point.  Or their customer service may continue to be poor as I have read.

Not so much that they share the Beats sound sig, rather in relation to their price point.  The price of admission is lower, hence the targeted buyer.

Fair enough.  Just as Sony seems to have raised their game with the MDR-1 line, I believe the SQ bar has been raised in the $300 range for closed cans.

Good point Craigster75.  Just as Grado is very finicky about discounting.  Reminds me of Rolex in many regards.  Rolex has pulled many contracts from ADs (authorized distributors) based on discounting.  It still goes on behind closed doors mind you wink.gif.

 

To be associated as a brand that can be had at a discount does effect the products principal of exclusivity and / or prestige (if in fact that is what said product is aiming for).

To be fair though, BH got their SigDJs in TODAY. 

 

Edit: I don't know if i'd pony up a thousand for these.... but then they could be my dream fun headphones.

Could be ...fair enough.  Now if Sony could get back on track and introduce something real high end and lusty like.

At $699, they are a big stretch for me.  At $1,000 they aren't happening.

Youve got to be adoring those TH-900s still.

Oh, I am! They are my favorites and I would never give them up. However, they are not slammin' bass in your face cans for when you want to jam the hell out.

Based on AnakChan's review, neither are the Signature DJs.  The AKG K267 may hit that mark even though they are piddly $300 headphones ;)

I honestly don't need much more bass than the Sig Pro. Just a little more! I am dying to hear them.
