 hi all , what do u think about this compare ? i already have 780 but i need more powerfull , deeper amd more punchy bass
  (trance , drum and bass , dubstep , hardstyle,electro etc.n )
in poland 780 cost 750 PLN (1 PLN = 3 dolars ) 900 cost 1500pln

See my sig for a review.
In short though
Pro 900
-bigger soundstage
-bigger bass/more bass/more impact
-more detailed
-more laid back
-warmer sound
-more body
-IMO boring sound sig in comparison to the 780s
-punchier bass
-more upfront (exciting?) sound sig
-thinner sounding
-more energy
I still like recabled 780s over the 900s which I Kees' modded and then sold.

^well..that would confuse you haha. By punch, I mean the impact and sound you will feel/hear is in quicker, shorter bursts which result in a more exciting sound. The Pro 900s have a louder, bigger bass which does hit harder, but it is not as quick. It sound more fluid and warmer.
Stock for stock, I still like the 780s more. 
Technically, the 900s are a better headphone due to their improved detail and bigger sound stage. However, they lack the excitement of the 780s and I felt the 780s weren't far behind the 900s in detail at all. The soundstage is of the 900s is noticeably bigger, but again, this wasn't a deal breaker for me. After listening to both (stock 780 and Kees' mod 900) for about 10 mins each, it was easy choosing which one to keep.

Like them both, 780 is more exciting, 900 is more neutral reference like. Electronic, rap, pop -> 780,   Piano, Classical, Acoustic, Jazz etc -> 900
Though I still prefer 2400's over both. (which is more expensive than 780, but cheaper than the 900).
