    First set of nice cans

    Im looking to buy my first set of mid price cans. Ive heard Sennheiser 280 Pros that a friend has and liked them ok. I own a set of Westone UM2s that I like and use as IEMs for live music performance, but wouldn't mind some more low end extension and clarity in the upper mids and highs.    ...

    An Ultrasone Comparison

    Members of the forum have asked me about the differences between the Ultrasone models, so I hope this post will help you decide which model would be most suitable to your needs. My experience with Ultrasones began with the HFI 550, which were great headphones for me. Big punchy bass that...

    Looking for Portable Cans

      Hi, I've been lurking around at reviews for different headphones and what everyone has to say about each set. I've just not been able to find a definitive answer to what might best suit me. I know that the response will probably be that I need to try them, and I'd love to if anyone knows...

    Review-First Impressions of Proline 550

    I wrote this review to help all those people that looked at my previous threads when I was asking questions about the “lower” end Ultrasones, this is for both of you. There’s something about Ultrasones 200,000 hits and 5,000 plus replies; Kernmac’s Ultrasone threads have less hits than the boys...

    dbi Pro700: first impressions

    I've got a pair of brand new dbi Pro700s today, and have been listening to them out of my Cowon S9 for some hours. Really great performers for the price ($29.99 + S&H off eBay). The pads and headband are very comfortable, and they're very tough, made to last. After these few hours, I can say...

    Creative Aurvana Live!

    I can't believe my $35 (used) Creative Aurvana Live! - CAL! - headphones sound this good / fun from a $10 (used) c-media sound card. I often listen to this rig for hours at a time because it sounds so good / fun - great synergy. The bass is deep, bumping, tuneful, and loud, just how I like...

    Denon D1000 vs Ultrasone HFI-550?

    Hi, I am going to be running these cans off an X-fi XtremeGamer sound card. I mainly play FPS games and such. Which set of cans would run best on my sound card and which would be better for gaming?   Thank you!

    Ultrasone Pro 550 VS Pro 900 Same bass quantity?

    Hey guys,   I just bought the Ultrasone Pro 650 having sold my old Pro 550. I really miss the quantity of bass that my Pro 550 gave me. Does anyone with experience with the Ultrasone Pro series and the 550 know which other part of the series has the same or dare I say more amount of bass...

    Tested and compared: Ultrasone PROline 550, 650 and 750 + the HFI-550 and 650.

    A friend of mine got some contacts within in the business, and I’ve been nagging him lately to get me some headphones for testing. This time he got hold of some of the new Ultrasone PROlines, and now I got them. Also, I got a few HFI’s, which I haven’t heard before. Ultrasone have...

    HD580/595 vs SR225 vs DT990 pros vs Ultrasone HFI-550 (a comparison)

    During my search for best mid-fi headphones, I actually bought many of them(all used off course ). I just want to share my thoughts to people who are considering these headphones. Please note that I may be biased and I'm not an audiophile. I’m not going to keep all of them forever, so I might...

    ULTRASONE PROline 550

    The PROline 550 is designed as an improvement on the immensely popular HFI-550. Featuring the same 50mm mylar driver and loud, punchy sound, the PROline 550 also features detachable cables and speed switch earpads, and S-logic(tm) natural surround sound. The larger, circular earcups produce a...
