Ultrasone Signature DJ - Page 5

Especially with a "DJ" branding on it. A lot of potential to not like that colored sound. 

 

But then again, how does this usually work? Like with the release of the Sig Pro... did the community wait for reviews? Or did someone plunge? Hard to plunge on a $700 "DJ" headphone, despite how excited I am.

I suppose it's the old chicken and egg.  Well, there are a few Summit Fiers out there who buy every new luxury can as soon as it comes out, so hopefully a few have an interest in the Signature DJ.  I recall one who had a collection that included TH900, HD800, LC-3, etc.

If I hadn't just bought both the Sig Pro and the TH900 in the last two months, I might be going for it.

i'm not really an ultrasone fan but i do like sig pro a lot and i do sometimes want more bass.  not saying sig pro is bass light but i just want some bass sometimes.  so i'm really looking forward to this.

i probably going(want) to hear th900 again but th900 is just, it's a pretty decent headphone but it just does do anything for me. 

 

edit:  th900 is a much better headphones than sig pro and proabably sig dj too but just nothing  excite me.  so that's why i'm really looking forward to sig dj

I was going to jump straight into these but like all of you i think i'm on the fence waiting for a few impressions, i'm a bit worried they maybe an improved pro900 rather than a bassier Sig pro.

Oh man, you should definitely give the TH900 another listen. It does it all for me. Pure magic. I haven't been elated with a headphone in ages. The bass is very much there, but it doesn't have the flabby bloat that some are used to, so it seems less present at first. But spend some time with it and you start to realize it's something quite special. Seems you like quite a bit of low end?

i guess so :) or th900 is very bad match with wa5(i don't really like sig pro with wa5 though but that another topic).  it really didn't impress me at all.  huge soundstage though.  even larger than t1.  much larger

I still believe that the Signature Pros deliver on every front. The bass is just so great, full bodied and tasty!

 

Right now, listening to Reggaeton and the bass is just awesome!

I don't know if you can find a high quality recording in YouTube of the following:

 

Song: Ella me Pide Something

Artist: J-King and Maximan

 

But with the Sig Pros it sounds excellent... still, I am interested on the DJs... (I just like the looks more than the Sig Pros! hehehe) So if it sounds similar with JUST A BIT (not too much) of bass, I'll sell the Sig Pros... I'm afraid though that they will be treble-happy/ear-piercing V-shaped cans...

Im also hoping for good things from the DJ,  not that Im in the market currently but its always nice to see another winning addition to the Ultrasone stable. 

 

I will say however that the freq responses are a tad more limited with the DJ vs the Sig Pro, as well as the fact that the drivers are mylar rather than titanium (coated).

 

Only time will tell how they fare as well as the early adopters first impressions.

 

I will be the first to admit that I was surprised that the DJ wasnt just a re-badged Sig Pro.....its obvious there will be some serious differences between the two.

My speculation is that the DJ will be a bassier, more fun & slightly less refined version of the sig pro,  which would be more neutral with better extension in comparison. Sort of like the HE-400 is to the HE-500. Depending on your preferences, either could be the better can for the individual. 

After being so impressed with the sig pro, I have to admit I wouldn't mind trying out the DJ as I am a self confessed bass-head.

I'm okay giving up a little refinement to the Sig Pro since I consider them detail monsters.  The beefier bass is a given and is what has me most intrigued, but only if the overall mids and highs don't stray too much from the Sig Pro and certainly not brighter with a harsh high end like the Pro 900 which I find unlistenable after about 5 minutes.  At least with Ultrasone, I am confident these will not be dark like many other DJ cans.  If I never heard the Sig Pro and Edition 8, I don't even know that the Signature DJ would be on my radar, but the potential upside is just too good to resist.

 

Description of Signature DJ from RMC web site:

"imagine some of the best headphones you have ever heard, but that were able to be used at very high volumes, with superb low frequency response"

 

I am encouraged there is no mention of boosted high end, just boosted low end.  Of course, a more objective review would be helpful.

 

At this price point, there is every reason to expect them to be the best sounding basshead cans ever made.  If only they live up that modest expectation :)

Where do they say that? (It's a trick question; they don't.)

I like what I am reading and LOVE the looks, but need more detail about their sound before I dive in for $699.
