Amazing in ALMOST every way

  • Excerpt: Yes, they carry a gulp-inducing price tag, but if you can spring for them, you won't be disappointed. The sound is immersive and exciting --without (and I underscore this)the kind of distortion that some other high-end cans resort to... for example, the shrill, high-treble focus of a Grado.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish, Versatility Across Source
  • Cons: Could Be A Tad More Comfy

  • 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.   My music tends to be expansive american 20th century (Copland, Ives, Gershwin), more minimal (Reich, Stockhausen, Ligeti), and female vocal (Dusty, Roberta Flack).
  • Pros: Excellent sound stage, glorious brass, easy to drive from a portable player, swapable cabling
  • Cons: isolation and leakage not to CIEM standard

  • 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 Pads I'm loving having closed headphones at home, and the SigPros are very nice indeed.
  • Pros: low-fatigue, Great Soundstage, Very Fast, Excellent Build Quality
  • Cons: Slightly recessed vocal range - may improve after break-in.

  • 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.  In fact, they look like they'd cost $60-150... which is a selling point for me.
  • 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. Thats kinda surprising since I've been listening to the EX1000 the past month or so extensively.
  • Pros: Balanced, neutral sounding, bigger ear-cups than Ed8, less flashy, feels durable
  • Cons: Leather on head-band not very inspiring

  • 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
  • Cons: Headband, lack of bass

'Musical Bliss'

Christian Blundell, Amazon

  • Summary: What an amazing pair of can's! Have been looking for the ultimate closed headphones for a while now, as I need to use them without annoying anyone.!! I use them for mixing and producing my own music and for listening to my favourite tunes. These headphones do everything well. The range is superb. They can handle lows just as well as the mid and high.

Simply the best

  • Summary: These are marketed as high end DJ headphones, but can be used by anyone on the look for awesome audiophile quality sound from a closed back over the ear headphone. Despite closed back, Ultrasone's S-Logic technology provides an amazing soundstage that out performs some open audiophile cans at more money. These cans can actually perform competently driven straight from an iPod or smartphone device but when powered by amp really come to life and show there pedigree.
