He also states that they sound more neutral than the ED 10.

That would have to mean no high end earbleed.

Ultrasone French dealer told me they were about to update the HFI line. 

(starting point was: is there going to be a Signature HFI (following pro and dj)? answer was no. but the hfi line is going to be updated).

I have the HFI-780 ear pads. I ordered them just to verify how much the sound alters by switching the ear pads. Pulled the SIG PRO pads off and installed the HFI-780 pads. Boy what a mess! The sound signature changed from exquisite neutral to standard Ultrasone house sound. Sharp highs and degraded mids and bass quality. Could no longer listen to Adele's voice. I feel that the SIG PRO is the SIG HFI already as both the SIG PRO and the HFI-780 share a lot of components only the drivers magnet ,the ear pads and the headband construction and  padding are different. OK I  have not opened them, so maybe they put in some damping material too. All in all a finding that is the same with exchanging the pads between the PRO 900 and PRO 2900. With the PRO 2900 pads the PRO 900 sounds much better in my opinion but it also loses a lot from its big bass in the process. And with the PRO 900 pads the PRO 2900 gains bass and looses overall quality.

Almost the whole yesterday. Since I live in Munich it's a short jump. Had plenty of great info from Grell, Fang Bian, Fried Reim of Violectric and a few others. Listened to the Orpheus. normal_smile%20.gif

 

The Bakoon Amp was in a good, less noisy spot together with Klutz Design, equipped with Audezes and Toxic Cables.

That name doesn't augur well in the west....

No idea how they sound, but they look gorgeous. For all the auditory horrors the ED10 allegedly perpetrated, I still think it's one of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful headphones I've ever seen. Let's hope this one sucks a lot less.

It ended up being just as horrible as the ED10 besides the pretty aesthetics... the end.

Hopefully they learn from their mistakes although for me ED10 matched with right equipment is a great headphone - and greatly overpriced, too!

From my experience w/ the HFI-2200s and Pro 900s they take a long long long time to burn in..... Not hd800 burn in long though..

The ED10 I heard would need about 5 months in a brick kiln......
