I have not heard those two particular Ultrasones, but Ultrasones can be very good choices for EDM. My favorite for those genres in the Ultrasones roughly in your price range (based on the models you are looking at) is the HFI-580. Awesome bass response that will make most bassheads happy biggrin.gif

Search the Ultrasone Fan Club thread for those models. I'm sure people have discussed them enough that you could get a feel for how they sound in comparison to each other. If not, post and ask a question there smily_headphones1.gif

I have HFI-680 and they're great, but lighter on bass than 580/780 HFI models. Still the bassiest cans I own though.

Worth noting that they need some juice to sound their best. Are you using them portable or desktop?

See if you can find the 580s for a good price on Ebay. They REALLY are excellent basshead headphones. I think the subbass sound quality in them is like what you get from a very expensive subwoofer. Very well defined--not one note sounding bloated thumpiness.

First time I tried the 580s, I listen to Ludacris's Get Back which has some low 30hz tones, which to me are as much (or more) for feel as hearing when I listen at home with my home audio system and subs. Most people would never experience that low bass with regular speakers without a sub. The low end sub bass is so good in the 580s, I felt that sub bass buzz effect accurately vibrate in my shoulder a tiny bit. That's pretty amazing sub bass from a headphone set biggrin.gif

Oh, so  580 basses are better than 680 , so what about Pro 550?s    this cups are out of leage for my intensions?

Yes, 580 is definitely better for bass and especially direct from laptop / phone.

I can't comment on 550s
