Hi,
I am struck between choosing one of these three headphones. Will be using them in conjuntion with an iPod/ computer so no seperate amp. Will listen mostly to trance/ dnb.
Thanks!
+ what about the Focal Spirit One?

The Pro900 are great sounding headphones with extra bass and soundstage is large on these(Ultrasone are generaly very good with these genres music).

I liked the PRO900 straight out of an iphone, problem is you'd be running it at like 90% volume all the time and the PRO900 and 750 leak pretty bad for closed headphones and they are huge. So I wouldnt recommend them for portable use.

Well the PRO's do come with 2 cables one of which is short. I think (not sure) the 780s have a really long cable. I have only tried both the PRO models so thats about the only comparison I can do.

I've owned Pro 750, and heard Pro 900. For me, the 750 sounded too thin, but had better details. The 900 has huge bass (especially mid bass) and sounded better to my ears. I found that both leak very little to none, especially compared to the likes of the popular Denon X000 line.
 
As for an amp, both usually can be driven without a dedicated amp, but they also sound marginally better with one.
 
As far as portability, the do come with a case, and they fold flat. BUT on your head they are huge, and in general you would look like a poseur with them on in public.
