I was under the impression that orthos are bass light, i.e. Mad Dogs.

I think the Mad dogs have more quantity than the average headphone. Where ortgos really shine is how low they drop into the sub bass regions and most importantly the quality of the bass. Once you hear them you'll understand water people mean by "one tone bass"

I guess I have to disagree. I won't try to argue that orthos don't have great bass quality but as far quantity goes, I don't think it's enough to satisfy people who are actually bassheads. The quantity and impact just isn't there. 

I have both the HE400 and HE500 and from my understanding they are a good showcase of ortho bass and I don't find them to satisfy the basshead in me. Both great headphones though and I'll probably keep the HE500 as something else to listen to as an alternative to the SDJ.

I can't imagine an open headphone providing the visceral punch I receive from a capable closed back dynamic driver as the air has nowhere else to go but my eardrums.

I just downloaded Jewel's Greatest hits and am listening with the DJs.  With the right vocal recording like this one, mids don't sound recessed at all and her voice........ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..........

What I found in my SDJ is that they say its dj headphone but,,,,it sound more like casual(I would say fancy) headphone for regular music listening. 

 

Very controlled, tight,punchy Bass,

 

Clear and Vivid Mid,

 

Crystal Clear yet not harsh treble~!

I did a little comparison bwtween my ED8 with SDJ

 

 

 

Sub Bass Quantity: ED8 and SDJ has similar quantity of bass

 

Sub Bass Response: SDJ has faster and tighter Bass response

 

Mid Bass Quantity: SDJ has slight more Mid Bass than ED8

 

Mid Bass Response: ED8 has tighter Mid Bass Response

 

Mid Quantity: I'd say they are very similar but SDJ has little more of Mids

 

Mid Response: ED8 has faster response on Mid 

 

Mid High Quantity: ED8 has has more Mid high fr rang

 

Mid High Response: SDJ has faster response on Mid High fr rang

 

Treble Quantity: ED8 has more Treble than SDJ

 

Treble Response: Still SDJ is Faster

 

 

Result

 

SDJ gives more power and fullness in music. They have tight punchy Bass with vivid Low mid and very controlled and smooth high (I'm not saying it is lack of treble SDJ Had very wide FR Range yet they are not overwhelming).

 

ED8 gives more detail and clarity in music. They do have tighter mid bass with crystal clear Mid High and treble.(I'm not also saying ED8 is lack of Bass and Mid bass. They have plenty amount and quality of Bass and Mid bass but it is not as controlled when I compare to SDJ).

Great comparison with subtle differences between the two.  I found the ED8 a bit too bright and think the Sig DJ is spot on with the extra bass "oomph" I like.
 

post #534 of 2041

Agree~ some people do find ED8 is too aggressive on treble

Question to all you PROs . I don't mind spending the $1000 however is there even a better DJ can available on the market, or is something better and perhaps more expensive about to come out

I am not a pro, but can see how these would be a dream DJ headphone for a pro.  These are incredibly durable, they come with a coiled DJ cord in addition to a smartphone cord, the cups swivel and they are the most comfortable, best sounding DJ headphones I ever heard in my life by a mile.  Their sound is so good, they are almost selling them short calling them DJ headphones.  They are basically summit-fi audiophile closed headphones with enhanced bass.  Even the case they come with is top shelf.  They also go loud and isolate well with a snug fit, yet never too tight- great for loud environments.  I believe the Signature DJ is in a class by itself in the DJ headphone category.

 

Confirmed in this review by a DJ headphone reviewer:

Thank for response , do they have the best isolation on the market though???? For that kind of money I would expect . Love my v 100 however they suck in Isolation and wing tip cracked.

To me at least, the Ultrasone Signature DJ would be the personal best sounding closed isolating headphones for my sound preference. But the SigDJ's are pricey.

The M-100 to me at least has been great value for me. But you are correct about its isolation.

I wrote a review on both these headphones.
post #539 of 2041

Any thoughts on how the DJs sound compared to the Pro 900s? 

post #540 of 2041
AnakChan I know I followed you on m 100 and one of the first to receive them. The music is very loud in clubs I play. I use the aiaiai tma. 1 and senheiser 25 . But looking to increase isolation. Are these foresters about to be released better you think?
