- Overall Opinion
- used for 8 months
I have not been wrong before, Koss, AKG ...
Before buying I did some tests with my CD store and this is the one that convinced me the 750 model is less well defined but also in serious and I liked him another which I Forgot reference.
Well it is not given.Using sound recording, mixing, studio.
Comfortable to wear although it may take a little warm.Solid and unscrewed cables, mini and large jack provided along suitcase / bag.Exelente quality, the spectrum is respected and superb stereo imaging.
Insulation for a closed headphone is very good.
- Overall Opinion
- It is expensive course. But:
* The audio quality comes at a price - always. I prefer a thousand times set aside for me to buy quality equipment rather than having the low end that will not allow me to end work "properly"
* I see it as a long term investment. I kept my almost 10 HD25 in working condition, I can not imagine having to change the PRO900 before the same period. Therefore, it is expensive to buy, but over the period of use (estimate short 10 years), I will be back in less than 40 € / year. When I see that within cost about the same amount and die within a year, a year and a half, I think there is no photo.
* Is what I would do this choice - yes yes yes
* I have not listened to a lot of other headphones, so I do not have the ability to argue on the benefits and shortcomings of this headphone compared to the competition. The only important point for me is that it matches my expectations. Quality - reliability.Home studio use only. No dedicated room at home, my home-stud in the living room. I do not use more than 2 ~ 3 hours / day, as my musical activity occurs only in the evening after sunset children so I can not say if it is too tiring. Personally, it does not get tired!
I invested in a Sennheiser HD25, several years ago, and it was really the end of life (crackling / saturation in the left ear of frequencies) foam sticking out. In terms of comfort, tended to HD25 (too) compress the ears. It was a quality as the soundproofing was pretty good, but impossible to work with without long breaks. Here I can stay more than two hours of non-stop work with the PRO900, at no time did I feel the need to remove it to relieve my escourges (and I wear glasses).
I put 10 because it satisfies me completely.The strength, I would not know what to say, I have not tried to throw it out the window D. on the other hand, large positive, the power jack is provided in two copies, and 6.35 mini jack. It is screwed into the hull of the left atrium and in my opinion it is a really good point, impossible to pull the cord if mishandled.
Also provided with a rigid carrier bag and foam twice.
Ditto for the note, it is absolutely in line with what I could expect from a headphone of this quality. I guess there are better or nicer but at what price?Bluffed. This is the term I would use to describe the first listening done with this headset.
I generally listen to everything from jazz, electro, reggae, rock, not classical masses, but hey, to each his style.
To give you an idea of the degree of accuracy achieved with this headphone: I'm a big fan of Roy Hargrove and I listened to his ablum loop Emergence big band, released in 2009. Well, we hear the triangle - distinctly!
So, after I do not have the technical knowledge to compare to others, whether he is pretty good at low frequencies, it has too much treble or midrange, but for me it is a real treat, a good tool that allows me to discover more albums.
- Overall Opinion
- I bought this headphone almost a year ago.
Once out of the box, I was really pleased to see the qualities of manufacturing quality. Nothing to say, it is well presented, it inspires a true sense of robustness.
Listening to the CD supplied blew me away, especially in the bass (monstrous deep)
Just listen to the track "also sprach Zarathustra" to be convinced!
I once read on a forum a user who expressed his disappointment of the bass. Objectively, I said:
- Either this guy was deaf
- Either it was not long to be!
Not really difficult to say that these headphones lack bass. But beyond the fact of having, it's accuracy is totally bluffing.
I think this requires a headphone "training" of the ear (hence my title) to discover the subtlety and great qualities. We do not turn the question into two hours.
According use (composition or listening) can sometimes say "average ..." or "awesome!" but never "blah". And, with experience, I tend to say that if there is something "average" is that really the source is not of high quality. Because it lets nothing pass headphone (micro breath, cuts, etc., means any if one has spent time lead over his ear)
The only time I found it tiring headphone, it is compo. Never listening, even on pieces hyper compressed or saturated.
Com but, it does not surprise me too much. When EQ for example, frequency sweeps long, etc.. In short, it produces "sound operations" can be very repetitive and "non-musical" where fatigue (this is only my opinion!)
On electronic sounds ultra compressed, I think we perceive less sound pressure with a monitoring system. Let me explain:
In a very typical piece of the "loudness war", there are still some passages without kick (but at the same maximum level)
Much on my Fostex 2.1 I hear clearly the sidechain compression when the kick enters (we feel that the melody tumbles few dB to make room for the kick) as the Pro 900, I have not felt too much. I think that this may be a phenomenon related to headphones in general (sound pressure) but I do not really know. Psycho-acoustically speaking, there's no such decrease in volume in the headphones that I have seen with monitors.
We all know that the headphone mix is not ideal. But I think with this one, you can do it without a problem (except possibly in some cases of hyper compressed musical styles as mentioned above)
Issue price is not given, it is true. But like anything of value, if one cares (which is my case) is a great investment.
And for those who still hesitate because of the price, here's my advice to acquire smooth (what I did):
Purchased 10 times free with credit agency, then I found a coupon on the net 50 euros (for the opening of revolving credit)
Review: Price 395 - 50 = 345. With the cost of revolving credit (thirty euros I think at the end) I was actually cheaper than the price and nine credit! What else? :)
- Overall Opinion
- I've had it about 5 months (the time a very thorough break). I had many small headphones before but this one really is several notches above.
Sound extremely precise fate of the headphone early mids and low mids are muffled after it clears.
I'm tired, it looked like my right ear is bigger than the left ear, no way to keep time on my head (a few exceptions), sometimes I feel it 's based on my ears so it hurts, or it is not at all the case. I continually readjusts, either at the bow or stem at the speaker or the angle support on my head but nothing to do sometimes (though there is room for the ear . So either the engineers still have a lot to learn in terms of construction or headphones or they deliberately sabotage the comfort aspect to keep a sacred distorted between PRO 900 and other models earlier in their range of price. Is the PRO 2900 (open face headphone) solves the problem, I think not ..
And their pads "interchangeable" come often, fortunately there's always someone next to me to make me out when I have not even seen me fall.
A final criticism is at the 3.5 mm cable for listening on portable, well let me tell you that the plastic tip is super strong but too wide at the mass to the simple covers My iPod is tailored to the size of the input jack and when I put the jack it is quite often on the move, it's boring!
I plan to buy the Monster Cable 3.5mm (headphone not LOL!) Just for the tip thinner. For cons, the two cables supplied are very good bills, including the 6.35mm that I use on my sound card studio.
In the end the price / quality ratio is disconcerting given the sound quality, but I know where they planed ... shame as comfort is very important.
I would do that choice if I could afford to pay me 10 edition of the same brand: something tells me that the problem does not arise comfort but maybe I'm wrong, I did not personally tested.
- Overall Opinion
- How long have you been using
Aquis recently running a night at moderate volume, I did not try other models baucoups différant one focal brand which is very surprising by its claretée one and two beyerdynamic akg and beat (pfff)
The feature I like the most accurate and low hyper acute deep the great set overall accuracy of the sounds that I found to work great waves of tables in osc virus ti (for example) there is the same super reverb with this quasque
great as if you mix with mini monitors with a great depth.
With complex sounds and the sounds of live 8 (with sound effects synté well that not drool same same with a big kik more HA HA)
it is perhaps néssécaire keep on hand a well quasque moin and low anceinte games
quasque this is too peutére values sounds that I was wrong to have this Advent quasque there is a risk that the dimension (s-logic has much to do)
seen that particularitée of this technology is not deafening.
Colégue well with you one who will lend you a headphone walk-man.
It perhaps lacks a bit of medium that are slightly recessed but nothing very Gave to see after a break-in period!
Quoit happens all is clear not panic
of a sudden discover and re néssesaire bookshops and patches since there are more pretty distortion of my old gear lol.
I think the virus ti sounds is great with this quasque.
for those who desire the noise of a Boeing 777 Takeoff
or f1 is not to buy it qui'il
one can save for your old gti and faittes mix in cofre.
the quasque is 96 db (Sound pressure level 96 dB)
this is not done to disco or (dicotec it depends) for ball that says that Pete is not enough!
Finally good quality / price is good German
therefore finished well equip cables spare pads and a nice boiboite.
ps: buy music in comeback

- Overall Opinion
- How long you use it?
Almost a year, but mainly to work on my battery electronics for not too much esquinter ears thanks to S-Logic limiting the sound pressure on the eardrums. I also thought the use to listen to music as an alternative to Grado GS1000 but ultimately no, this is the Grado that wins every time.
Did you tried many other models before buying it?
In the long term Sennheiser HD-25 SP, Grado GS1000 and JHAudio 13PRO.
What is so special that you love the most, least?
Nothing to say next build quality, equipment supplied (2 cables), etc. See leaflet for it except that the sound does not fit me, too dry, too "German"? It's like the Mercedes / BMW, it's nice well built and all but I know it does not fit me. I prefer the U.S. for now that is to say in my little collection and the JH Audio Grado. This is surely a taste of history (price as it is true but range / price equal I am almost on without being able to say that I would go again for a Grado) ... Also too low at the level of defects pure. In short it is a slap ass Merco diesel without air con (it's fast very hot under that big headphone off), nothing much to get excited ...
How would you rate the quality / price?
Not bad considering the quality of the final construction
With experience, you do again this choice?
Nah, not my thing ... I put 8/10 rating in absolute because there is not 7.5 but hey, I put 7/10 to AKG K450 (because there is no 6.5) three times cheaper and 10 times more wearable outdoors (I ventured out once with the PRO900 I think people thought I was a Martian, looking for a jerk so it is not aesthetic once placed on a head 8 - ).
- Overall Opinion
- I use it now for two weeks.
I had an old sony open, low-quality front.
All the people who say it is an analytical trs headphone are right.
I test again:
trs comfortable, we ended up forgetting about his ears. Closed you can add a little snare drum in the headphone while playing cot drummer, and out of not having repeated ear whistling.
I test to mix:
I wrote a song mix and master this headset only, your exact comfort me in the ide as c'tait a good headphone if you have not studio monitors high-end. I've got the Fostex PM-0.5 mkII and I had a better rsultat by mixing with headphones that I used products.
Personally, I like the sound and comfort of this headset. One small regret, they deliver it with a cable twist, jack and a 6.35 cable jack right 3.25. The jacks are screwed to the headset. They should have to provide an extension plutt two cables.
Ct report quality price, I can not say whether it is the cart with the price rputs Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro. I do not think I put a 400 but trs attractive prices on Ebay (280 new) made me take the plunge.
This is a purchase "a life" so yes I think I'm doing the right thing.
- Overall Opinion
- To replace a Bose passed away, I decided to invest in a good headset for monitoring and listening.
I looked at the Ultrasound Pro 900.
On the one hand the product is high quality, comes with many accessories, the mini jack is screwed into the headphone which is a very good thing.
Since this headset is closed once the ears are really out of touch, finally I'm exaggerating, just means that surrounds us but it's really a very good point in that direction.
The value for money is good given the finishes and especially the sound!
And there I must admit that I was really pleasantly surprised, surprised by the first low, deep and well defined, sub-bass are the game and it is a treat!
The rest is as good, medium and treble are well developed.
In short, this headset is a killer and I am fully satisfied!
I rediscovered Angel by Massive Attack with!
Some told me about his process S-Logic, which provides a front stereo image, but I have not really thought it was obvious even if the field of stereo headphones are excellent!
- Overall Opinion
- I use this headset for 9 months for the composition / mix (20%) and listening (80%). My old headphone is a Philips HBC910 as far to say that I made the leap. Naturally, the PRO 900 outclasses even let up on the HBC910 both ways. Given the price difference is not surprising.
The manufacturing quality is the RDV, plastics inspiring confidence, 2 cords (1 + 1 twisted right) tip 3.5 jack screw on a headphone. Joints for folding and storage in appropriate box (most of south wind after a few tweaks my Tenori-on as it goes, two in one!), Very convenient! I travel a lot, I love it!
I had the opportunity to compare it with Sony headphones in the range of 150 € (sorry, I can not remember the ref. Qlq.chose MDR ...). Low PRO 900 are much more spare, identifiable, clear as those made by Sony, which seemed to be a mix between low and high frequencies. At medium, I should not have fine enough or the ear piece was not suitable. Regarding the acute, PRO 900 was clearer, more percussive. Across the spectrum PRO 900 seemed more detailed, detaching the sound of each other.
In conclusion, PRO 900 is a pair of cheap but quality, comfortable, convenient and providing (the record of my ears) listening analytically quite usable and appropriate to the composition or mix.
I remake this choice, yeah, sure!
- Overall Opinion
- * S-Logic ™ Natural Surround Sound Plus
* Principle Dynamic, closed
* Frequency range from 6 to 42.000 Hz
* Impedance 40 Ohm
* Sound pressure level 96 dB
* MU Metal bufferboard, Reduced emissions in field shall conduct free ULE (Ultra Low Emission) standard
* Driver 40 mm titanium-plated
* Weight 295g (without cord)
Purchased some ten days running almost 24/24 so about 70 hours
and already the sound has really changed from the early low level that are more round
Spatialization is impressive from the beginning but I knew already because I have an ultrasound Pro 2500 for 5 years
bandwidth from 6 to 42 real
Compared to other brands like Sony, which announced 7509HD 5-80 um I say that low down to 100 max and again (for me it's a cardboard headphone stereo very poor low nonexistent)
Here the entire spectrum is present and the lack of bass and treble a bit garish medium sometimes on 2500 (open face headphone) was corrected
This headset allows the bass not always obvious in a home studio (I have Dynaudio BM5A)
The RPIX is certainly a little expensive but rather than buy several headphones at 200 euros it is worth buying one of the departure
I would do without hesitation that choice but I have for years it is no longer guaranteed 5 years and handmade in Germany and not in Asia as most headphones on the market
