Summary: I just received my SigPros (bought from a fellow head-fi'er), and now have several hours with them. They are great headphones. Agree with most of what everyone's saying about them. These are the best sounding headphones I have heard.
They don't have the look of the higher priced headphones.
Pros: Beautiful sound, well built, spartan design aesthetic
Cons: Headband padding bit too thin for my long wearing comfort
Summary: Just received these babies to replace my Ed8 for portable use. I must agree that they don't sound as "Wow" as the Ed8 on first listen. Although all the detail is there, the soundstage feels a tad more congested than the Ed8, the upper registers with female vocals have that metallic tinge to them.
Pros: Balanced, neutral sounding, bigger ear-cups than Ed8, less flashy, feels durable
Summary: Running gear:
* JDSLabs built Objective2.
* HRT Music Streamer II.
* Lots of lossless audio and MP3-320.
* Also tested with Fiio E17
Other cans I own(ed) that I may be compairing these to:
* Grado GS-1000 (non-i)
* AKG K701
* Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
* Grado SR225i (Modified)
* Grado SR80i w/ L-Cush...
Pros: low-fatigue, Great Soundstage, Very Fast, Excellent Build Quality
Cons: Slightly recessed vocal range - may improve after break-in.
Summary: Excellent set of closed cans and these would be my favorite if only they had a little more punch in the low end. Disappointing for me to hear mediocre bass. Especially in a set of closed cans.
Pros: Travel ready, will play through any source easily
Summary: I've found myself unable to use custom IEMs and needed to find some high quality portables for my three hours a day on public transport. After lots of research and some excellent help from assorted head-fiers, I settled on these.
Pros: Excellent sound stage, glorious brass, easy to drive from a portable player, swapable cabling
Summary: I have my Signature Pros a few weeks now and i am really enjoying them.
I have been into headphones for about 4 years now and these are my most expensive pair (i have a pair of Denon AHD2000, Grado SR225i and Etymotic ER-4PT to compare to).
Pros: Fantastic sound, build quality is excellent, easy to drive, easy to transport
Cons: A little pricey for non EU customers (though better value in the EU)
Excerpt: W broszurze reklamowej Ultrasone możemy przeczytać, że „te słuchawki są owocem wieloletniego dialogu pomiędzy zawodowymi muzykami a entuzjastami hi-fi”. To by oznaczało, że te dwa światy nareszcie się spotkały (często można odnieść wrażenie, że dźwiękowcy robią nagrania dla siebie i sami nie...
