Prodpipe Pro 800 headphones. If you like bass, you will love these. Here's a quick comparison to the other headphone I own, the Superlux HD668B, both being driven by a FiiO E7:

After a couple weeks of break in, the V shaped sound profile turned into a much softer U. At first the mids sounded washed out, but have come around to sound almost as good as the Superlux HD668B. The Prodpipe's crush the HD668B on the low end with really accurate tight bass. The Prodpipe's are also considerably louder at the same volume level. The Superlux sounds warmer, but the Prodpipe have a touch more accuracy. The Prodpipe's transmit some background hiss, whereas none can be heard on the Superlux's. Really, the differences in sound are negligible to my untrained ear beyond the clear bass advantage of the Prodpipe Pro 800.

As to be expected with a closed headphone there is almost no sound leakage whereas I wouldn't be able to blast the HD668B without annoying everyone around me. The Pro 800 feels more sturdy and weighty than the HD668B. The coiled cable is a nice touch. Comfort is pretty good on both headphones. I have a huge head and am a crybaby, so I have to take them off after a couple hours. The Pro 800 comes with velour pads too which helps somewhat.

For ~ $30, these are awesome if you like bass heavy music.

ATH-A900X + "Custom" cables cobbled together from several retail components to allieviate stress on connections, increase comfort, and prevent damage.



Replacing worn out and somewhat damaged ATH-A700.

I bought a set of Ultrasone Pro 900s (got here Saturday) and I bought a FiiO E17 (getting here tomorrow) to replace the E10 that I was using.

I've put about 30 hours on them and am thoroughly impressed. They require 200+ hours of burn in to fully unleash as they are very technical phones. From what I've read and been told, the E17 pairs extremely well with it and can bring out the bass about as well as it can be.
After I get the E17 and put some more into the burn in, I'll do a little writeup.

I'm buying some 900s soon. Have you heard any of the other Ultrasone line-up which you can compare them to?

Please do write up about the pairing. I own a set of the Pro 900s and HD 600s, and have been eyeing the E17 for a while now. I would really like to know how well they fit.

Auditioned an Integra DHC 80.3 pre/pro last weekend and Anthem Statement D2. I like the full featured Integra, but the Anthem sounds better, even with regular Dolby Digital. The Anthem does not do DTS-HD or DTS from XBMC which really sucks a lot, but even when it re-samples to Dolby Digital it sounded better than the Integra, and much better than my B&K Reference 50 S2. Also pictured is a Rel Stentor III Subwoofer that I recently got. That thing is KILLER! biggrin.gif:D

I want to have a review up maybe Sunday. I want to get a little more into the burn in, because they just keep getting better. It's unbelievable. I got the E17 today. I've been listening to it for about 8 hours now. If you want a verdict now, get the E17 for the 900s. They match perfectly. But, I'll talk more about whenever I get the review up.

Also, can someone recognize these speakers? This guy is selling them all for 80€, and the only information he gives is that their brand is "Focus".
