i have the old school dj1 pros; second pair, actually. i also have a pair of pro750's. i still don't understand how anyone could call these bass monsters. now, if you put the 750 pads on the dj pro, then we're talking bass!

I personally don't think that the 780's look worse. The Pros actually look a bit toylooking to me. I don't think either looks good actually, but the 780's have a more stylized look as opposed to a toyish look. That has nothing to do with the SQ I'm sure.
a lot of the lower prices can's are actually hidden gems. a example at least for me was buying the ms1 and then buying the sr225 which was twice as much and thinking the details and sound of the ms1 was better for my taste for half the price.
i would not be surprised to find more such gems but honestly unless your a true blue addict with plenty of funds, it's hard to try all the possible combinations and headphones hehehe
I will probably get the dj1pro in 2 months or so. I will report on how they sound myself but as of now I guess this thread is going to stay lonely. I will compare them to the Audio Technica AD2000 and how things sound in reality. They will probably dissapoint in those areas cause after all even the ad2ks are more rolled off on top and aggressive sounding than reality. I at least hope that their sound will give me pleasure as my main "bring it around" cans. I got akgk81djs for that before after reading markls rave reviews but they never really made me enjoy my music with their dark and muddy sound.
Rickio, The ms1s were actually ok for me but the lack of deep bass and soundstage were my main turn offs. If I get a can to use in noisy places, all the frequencies have to be able to cut through the background noise
Got info from The Mick that the dj1pros are the same can as the proline 550s except that they are tuned with a different balance. A guy from headroom also told me that the dj1pro has a snappier and less muddy bass than the pro550s.

Actually the specs and drivers looks to be the same on the pro 550 and the dj1pro... I wonder if they are the same headphone but with different looks and accessories designed for different buyers
fyi DJ1 are more bright and forward than K81dj (K518dj)...but haven't heard DJ1pro for my self, only read from the thread that i gave you on PM...
yes, they both the same cans with different accessories and buyers, just like you've said...
