    The sound of the Ultrasone Pro (Proline) 750 Headphones

    Thank you for your kind words, Worldman. I meant to write to you before but my attention was diverted. I also keep coming back to the Pro 750 for basically the same reason as you. As a matter of fact, I am listening to them right now. Until very recently it has been a number of years since I...

    The sound of the Ultrasone Pro (Proline) 750 Headphones

      Paul, It is a coincidence you mentioned Pink Floyd because a few days ago I was listening to my original vinyl version of Meddle which I hadn't heard in some years.  And, yes, I did listen to that album with the Pro 750.  Regarding your problem, there are a number of possible causes.  Since...

    Throzen0303, This corresponds exactly with what I wrote about before in my comments to Krisman about his review of the Pro 750.  The native sound of the Pro 750 treble does not hurt people's ears. Believe me, I am very particular about audio fidelity.  Some have accused me of being a...

    Krsiman, I want to make it clear that I am not trying to change your mind.  What I am trying to do is figure out why your extremely negative perception of these headphones is not only the opposite of mine but also the opposite of other many people some of whom are recording industry...

    Krisman, There is something wrong somewhere.  Maybe it's your amp.  I don't know, but my 6 year long experience with the Pro 750 is the polar opposite of your experience.  I could not ask for a more beautiful sounding headphone.  Did you try repositioning as I suggested in my previous comment? ...

    Valhallatier, 1. It's not my recording at fault; 2. I dislike and am not accustomed to "crazy treble spikes"; 3. The amp I was using functions well; 4. I have not heard all of the Beyer headphones but I would agree that the DT 770 is boring but I'm not sure about it being "neutral"; 5.  Someone...

    Bought Ultrasone Signature Pro yesterday, still not confident

    Sofastreamer, Ultrasones require burn-in and a lot of it!  Burn in for at least 100 hours.  The sound will improve signficantly. Make certain the cable is screwed in all the way.  A common complaint from Ultrasone newbies is the phones don't sound good and one of the reasons is because of the...

    Krisman, If that's you in the picture, the way you probably have to wear a headphone headband because of the tall height of your hair (either immediately over your forehead or at the very back of your head) I do not doubt that the Pro 750 sounds bad to you.  It is absolutely necessary for the...

    Here is a quote from a review on Amazon.com.  The author of the review seems to agree with me about the sound of the DT 770: "These do offer a natural, yet slightly muddied (which does improve with use) sound..." If you wish to read the full review here is a link:  ...

    I listened to the DT 770s by way of a amplifier for a home stereo.  As far as I know they were not defective.  I listened to this same amplifier with another pair of headphones and they sounded OK.   I mentioned my opinion of these phones to someone and they told me they agreed that these...

    Review by 'Peter Pinna' on item 'Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO Closed Studio Headphones - 250 Ohms'

    I am really surprised to see so many positive reviews on the DT 770.  To my ears, the sound this headphone renders is muffled.  To my ears they sound as though someone has placed a heavy cloth over the microphones before recording.  That muffled sound distracts from the details heard from the...

    Review by 'Peter Pinna' on item 'Ultrasone PRO 750'

    I have owned the Ultrasone Pro 750 for approximately 6 years and to say that I am familiar with the sound of this particular headphone would be an immense understatement. As a highly experienced listener to the Pro 750 I can readily assure all of the people who have written negative reviews...

    Let's make it simple. Let's use only one very good headphone.

    Valiente: In this "game" are we allowed to have different amps to change the sound (depending on our moods or for whatever reasons) of our one headphone? Subtle: I'm curious, which amp do you use with the HD 800?

    Cabling actuality

    Earlier in this thread, Kernmac made a comment questioning the idea of whether or not it would be necessary to also change the internal cabling of the Ultrasone Pro series headphones when an aftermarket cable is plugged into the left side ear cup portal. What I surmised from Kernmac's question...

    Ultrasone 900 anxiety

    A number of new Ultrasone users have written to me with this same problem over the past several months. I will tell you the same thing I told them. Unscrew the cable from the cup then put it back in and then screw it in until it's screwed in to where it stops. It should not be loose. This should...
