I agree, they're good for guitar, vocals, and jazz.

 

Which drowns them out is the bass. They have no punch power in bass at all, but tighter bass which makes sound very different than other headphones.

For EDM , IMO he-400 is better for ambient, Downtempo and some Dubstep due to its fastness and overall clarity. Sig pro is the best when a more meaty sound is needed . Sig pro is more "realistic" and intimate. SP and he400 bass are equal in quantity and quality but different . Spacious and clear with he-400 , bodied  energetic and lively with Sig pro.

 

For example.  take this Infected Mushroom track :

 

 

With he-400 it seems you can hear and visualize noise from everywhere in soundstage, you can contemplate and follow sound objects very precisely as you can observ Little fish in an aquarium. it's really an impressive show but....

 

With an Ultrasone Sig pro.. ( and  I think is even more true for pro2900 or 900) , you didn't observe a little distant magnificent show anymore.. you' re plunged into the Music. Bass begun visceral , you feel physically the Music and overal sound become less sparkly but more realistic, more meaty

 

So , it's why I like more the he-400 for more relaxed listening of Ambient/Downtempo and Sig pro to really get a more lively experience.  IMO it's a matter of preference . it depends too o f what your listen to besides EDM.  For Rock/Metal I would choose he-400 . For Jazz, Classical , Soul, Funk,...Utrasone Sig pro.

 

I Hope to be  understandable . redface.gif

Thanks for the comparison. Infected Mushroom is something I listen too:) According to your description it seems to me HE-400 should suit me better than Ultrasone. Still I would love to listen to Ultrasone to experience the difference myself.

Self experience is the best, here is my Ultrasone comparison: http://www.head-fi.org/t/401879/an-ultrasone-comparison

Aside from the other excellent suggestions in this thread, check out the Philips Fidelio X1, they seem to be making big ripples across the headphone world (headfonia and InnerFidelity have both released great reviews of them).

I'll echo what many have said.... Pro 900 are the best I've heard for electronic overall. And I think I've about tried all the suggestions by now. Denon's have great sub bass for something like dubstep, but Pro 900 is better otherwise.
