I also own the M-100 and am a big fan of them.  I actually think the M-100 isolate okay, but Sig DJ may isolate better.  I can tell you the Sig DJ has a more solid build with no detectable weak spots like the M-100 wing plates- all plastic is thick and high grade.  The Sig DJ blows away M-100 in comfort- cups are much larger, plusher and the most comfortable leather I have felt.  Also, the sound signature is similar to the M-100, but the DJ takes the refinement, highs, bass texture to another level.  The Sig DJ has replaced the M-100 as my primary headphone and I can't imagine another headphone taking the top spot over the Sig DJ.

I auditioned the PRO 900 and thought the highs were so harsh, they were unlistenable.   IMO, every part of the range is better and more refined with less of a "v" shape with the Sig DJ vs. the PRO 900.

Confirmed in this review by a DJ headphone reviewer:

I can tell this is one of the greatest seal headpohne but in my opinion, it does not have enough Bass for DJ use cuz you will lose a lot of bass in club or any where that has lot of noise.

for sure it's so much better in terms of bass, mid, treble, definition, staging, comfort, and so many ETC... but it is like 3times more pricy

Unfortunately I don't have any information about the foresters and therefore can't comment on it. In fact I've not heard about them until you've mentioned it. Do you have any info about it?

I tried to Google Forester, but nothing came up that resembled a headphone.  Do you mean Foster as in Fostex?  If you are referring to the upcoming TH600, I doubt it would work well as a DJ headphone due to leakage and durability.

Yes sir I meant Fostex saw Sig DJt used on sale on eBay for $675 but instead ordered directly from ultrasone USA

Which Fostex model were you referring to? They have quite a few headphones. The high end ones as per Craigster, don't isolate. The lower end ones (T50RP, etc), I'm not certain if they're "DJ quality" in durability.

 

One thing though, the modded T50RP (MadDogs) do sound quite nice.

I hope you enjoy the DJ as much as I do.  Based on your screen name, I'm assuming you will be using it for work as well as recreation and I believe they will serve you well, plus they come with a 5-year warranty if you register directly with Ultrasone.

Came into a small windfall recently, and like any true Head-Fi nutjob, I'm blowing it  on a pair of cans biggrin.gif

 

I was initially more interested in the SigPros, but snapped up the SigDJs that Felix referred to on Fleabay in a moment of weakness, so we'll see how it goes ;). I have a pair of T5p headphones that I absolutely LOVE (seriously, I have fallen asleep to them almost every night since I got them... absolutely otherworldly-good cans), but they don't really do what I originally intended for them to do-- namely, provide me with great sound and isolation while on the go. They don't fold up, they're pretty large, and they don't isolate exceedingly well. Don't think I'll be letting go of those for a looooooooong time, but I still need a nice pair of closed headphones for on-the-go, and these look to fit the bill nicely!! Can't wait to hear them-- and when I do, I'll post some comments here ;)

 

Honestly, even over the presumably tectonic bass (which I'm not sure I'll like), my biggest concern is over the looks... I think they look really, really unpleasant. The white is just too blingy for my tastes anyway, and the logo on the glass looks very cheesy and slapped-together IMO. Naturally, there's no accounting for taste, and I know I'm in the minority here, but I'm really hoping I like their looks better in person redface.gif

 

Kudos to all the posters in this thread for their impressions and sharing of links and information!! I wouldn't have purchased these without some of the feedback I read here, so thanks to all beerchug.gif

Oh Gratz on winning eBay bid I had max $400 for the used pair. Let me know if the 5 hour play was a true statement. If it was you got a bargain. I am hoping to have mine shipped tomorrow. I returned my m100 sine a) bad isolation, b) cracked wing tip c) strangled me around the neck during sets. I work up to 5 days a week DJing so hoping that SIG DJs will be all that everyone's says it is. On the picture they do look cheesy, however Germans always made quality stuff and not fashionable like French and Italians. And yes I did pay $1054 for them. 5 year warranty and saved ears is more important for me than a fashion statement .

I don't think I've ever heard anyone say "Ultrasones saved my ears" but hope you like them!

I know exactly what you mean after auditioning the PRO900 for 5 minutes- all my ears could take.  The Signature DJ would shock you regarding the amazingly smooth treble presentation.
