Sorry Craigster frown.gif

Although I thought it was still in stock after I ordered mine but I could be wrong. I'm a bit nervous today because I haven't had any shipment confirmation yet. Someone bought the ones they have listed on ebay before I bought mine and I hope RMC's website actually reflects what they sell on their ebay store as well.

This is speculation, but I believe another reseller bought two of them because two new ones appeared on Ebay and they think they will get $1,000 for them.  I think you have the third (I was told they had and sold 3 total).

This would make sense. Sorry you missed out. :(

Thanks. They say things happen for a reason, so maybe the NuForce HP-800 I have coming Wednesday will knock my socks off for 1/5th the price.

Too bad about RMC! I wanted to pick up a second pair of SP's at that price. ah well.

 

Craigster, I really don't know if you'll like the SDJ. I think you find it alluring since it's expensive and glamorous. I don't think it's worth the money, really. I think the SP is a much better headphone and can be EQ'd to be an SDJ. I think the SDJ is a Gentleman's basshead can. Boosted bass, big price tag. They are too refined to be raging amounts of fun. You know what I mean? They lack raw power from the sub-bass. After one hour with them there was no doubt I was sending them back to recover my money.

I hope this isn't how I feel as well but we'll see. I got my shipment notification from RMC so I should have them on thursday or friday. 

 

I'd also like to bring them to the bay area meet on 2/17 and see if someone has the Signature Pros there for a comparison.

Thank you for the comforting words.  RMC still has good deals on Edition 8s.  Any thoughts?

A gentleman's Pro 900. Wicked hot highs and a sucked out midrange. Though the deal is tempting, I'd pass. I did, after owning them. Save up for SP.

Just an FYI all these 'closeouts' at RMC do not include a return policy. Once you buy them, you're stuck with them.

Dude, I have to take some of that attitude up there back and give the Edition 8 some respect. I used to love the Pro 900, then the Edition 8. I loved my Edition 8. But that's just not where I am now. And I think there's better to be had. For the price. And people say the same stuff with what I am in to now. I am just discovering so much stuff as I hear more and more audio gear. Audiphilium is curing me, so to speak, of being a bass head. I never in a Billion years think that would happen given my background....

The Edition 8 is a very fine headphone. It is crazy comfy for smaller heads, most comfy I have ever had, aside fom TH900. Edition 8 clamped more, but in a super supple luxurious way. The highs are hot and detailed. and very apparent. The bass is fantastically textured in a very refined way. It's not as accurate as say SP, but it's robust, and just tons of fun. Bass tighter and much cleaner than Pro 900, but much less quantity. The mids are far away, but they have details and texture.

If I had tons of money I would own them in a heartbeat.

Unfortunately they have always been that way. At least that's what they stated on site about 8 months ago when I bought SP. mad.gif

Food for thought.  B&H has ED8 for $999 right now and they do accept returns, but I agree the highs are too hot for my taste.  However, I think the ED8 bears a much closer resemblance to the Sig PRO than the PRO 900.  I have heard the SP as well and love them, but they fall a touch short of the bass I want which is where I am thinking the DJ would hit the sweet spot, but I can't bring myself to pay $1,000 for them at a ridiculous markup knowing that RMC was able to sell them at $699 and still make a nice profit.  I think I just need to give my M-100 the respect they deserve.  If there was never another headphone made, I could be content with the M-100.

 

EDIT:  This upcoming release will be the next focus of my attention:

I unexpectedly won a bid for brand new Ultrasone Signature DJs for $700 and couldn't be happier.  They sound as amazing as I hoped they would based on reviews here.  In addition to the sound, I am impressed by the solid and luxurious build and materials used.  The leather is the softest I have ever felt.  Clamp is perfect for me.  EQ is perfect for me.  I find them to be a more refined, detailed and spacious M-100 which is a compliment to both headphones since I am a huge fan of the M-100.  To my ears, they are a bassier Sig Pro which is exactly what I wanted.  I may not be able to afford a Ferrari or a house in Beverly Hills, but the Ultrasone Signature DJ makes me feel like I am living in the lap of luxury.  I am officially retired from headphone shopping.  Now onto portable amps........

 

I have Vamp and would like to give a little more power, so I was thinking they would double-amp well through Vamp's headphone jack with a FiiO E12 since Vamp has its own DAC and quality amp.  Any thoughts or other amp suggestions (preferably with bass boost) would be welcome.

Congrats Craig. I know you've been looking for a companion for your M-100 for a long time now. I hope the Signature DJ's sound signature suits your tastes.

Thank you for your spot-on review.  My wife will be relieved to know this is the last pair of headphones I will negotiate for a long time.
