Came into a small windfall recently, and like any true Head-Fi nutjob, I'm blowing it on a pair of cans .
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 .
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
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 .
When you hold them in your hands, you can see and feel the quality of the build and materials. Time will tell, but I perceive these as the most durable headphones I have come across.
