Ultrasone Signature DJ - Page 30

post #436 of 1499
Wow,he made a blind test without being blindfolded. And also the look of the SIGNATURE DJ mislead him. That is very good evidence on how good they are. Makes me very curious!

Yes I did try the Sig Pros as well.  I actually dismissed them rather quickly after hearing both Sig Pro and Sig DJ.  My preferences are for as much clean separation as possible.  By contrast to the DJs, the Pros sounded, to me, muddy and congested.  

 

When I saw the DJ description I assumed that they'd be Bass heavy.  

This is not the case.  I found the Sig DJs to excel at the mid range and above.  Come to think of it, for a DJ this type of performance actually makes a lot of sense.  For manual turntable beat matching, the clear click of the hi-hat can really help establish BPM.  

House, drum and bass, and breakbeat styles all tend to have more clicks per measure than thumps.

Don't ask me about dubstep.....

 

I think the Sig DJs are very versatile, I thought they performed well will classic rock as well as electronic music.  But again I like their quality of separation.  that's just me.

I know about dropping the last two zeroes, but I think my eyes were playing tricks on me, and I wanted them to be USD$80.... L3000.gif

Yeah, I'm extremely confused...

 

The way I see it, it could be two things. The bigger driver and opening could be contributing to increased S-Logic. Or else it has something to do with Ultrasone's notorious need for burn-in time, and it affects the titanium driver in the SP to a greater degree than the SDJ. I know my Pro 900's (with titanium drivers) have changed fairly drastically and sometimes rather suddenly.

I suppose it could also be QA, but it seems a little extreme for that. I play low brass, and the differences between tubas of the same model can be absolutely ridiculous. (Who made the bell that day? lol)

I am still tempted to go for the Sig DJ, but then I listen to my M-100 through VAMP and Iphone 4 with Apple Plus files and can't imagine a better sounding portable setup.

As I have only auditioned the ED8, I would extrapolate from other reviews that Signature DJ has smoother highs where some consider the ED8 too bright.  I also thought they were too bright for my taste, but just a little, not offensive like the PRO 900.  I did compare the Sig PRO to the ED8 and felt bass was similar, so DJ should have deeper, harder hitting bass, based on reviews.  Mids on Sig DJ also likely have some recession compared to ED8.  Of course, if anyone who has done an actual direct comparison would like to comment further, I would expect that to be more accurate.

Good to know.  Reported by whom?  Head-fiers?

yes

Could the usage of leather for the ear pads also cause These sound inconsistencies, because it is nature material and one cannot so much predict its sonic behavior other than Vinyl or velour pads? As far as I remember even the LCD 2 and LCD 3 are quoted as inconsistent sounding by guys who can afford buying them. That is because they have leather pads and even wooden parts.

Someone earlier did actually mention that the SP's they tried had different thicknesses on the leather that correlated with the sound quality.

 

That being said, the SDJ uses the same leather, so that can't be the entire issue. The biggest difference is the set of drivers, and the material used for them.

Reported by a handful of more veterna head-fiers. More accurate reviews and testing of the headphones have been tested on other audio forums.

i demoed both the DJ and PRO yesterday, i also found problems with the pads. Otherwise not bad at all- but a little odd...

Heres what i found:
