Liked the Ultrasone ed.8 and used them mostly for travelling, connected to a Mac or iPad. Great sound isolation - was able to use them at high volume inside a plane on a night flight without any complains from the other passengers.

 

Ended up leaving them on a plane :-(

 

What should I buy now for the same purpose (money no object)?

Wow..really? i wish i had luck to find a pair of Ed 8 on a plane. tongue.gif but seriously, sorry about that. 

 

Have you considered the Sennheiser amperiors?

What music do you like to listen to? What did you like/didn't you like about the Edition 8's in terms of their sound? Need a bit more information to make a recommendation I think!

I listen to all genres except classic music.

 

Liked almost everything about the ed. 8. Only the form factor didn't help putting them in and out of a bag in airplanes - but that's a minor downside.

 

Thanks, Pedro

So... 1/5 votes on the Ed. 8... Intriguing, I would expect them to be the most popular alternative...

Maybe try some modded T50Rps? MD or Paradox.

t5p's excel in classical music, and are not foldable.

 

the sig pros are foldable, and have better isolation by a little bit than the t5p's.

 

I think the sig pros are slightly on the bassier side, and t5ps are on the bass shy side

 

a note is, if you have bigger ears/ones that stick out more the felt of the sig pros might rub your ear which is annoying... but if you were okay with ed8's i think you should be fine. 

 

*i have both the t5p and sig pros, no idea about the others.

Agree the T5p bass quantity is on the slightly bass-shy side. That said, the quality of the bass is utterly superb, so with a little EQ tweak it's fine. In addition to classical music I really like rock and metal on the T5p compared to the Ed8.

 

Of the headphones discussed here the Sig Pros definitely have some pros for portable use over the others - folding with a decent quality portable case, removable cable.

It seems that the Ultrasone Signature Pro is the most recommended model with 4/7 votes.

 

Is it really better than the Ed.8?

 

Thanks.
