AH-D2000? wongster? wondering if you guys can compare them to the m50 or d2000?

Hm, sorry bud. I don't know anyone with the M50 or D2000, so I can't do a direct comparison. However, I have read posts from users at HeadFi that people who modded and used my other headphone, the JVC RX700, thought they were better than the D2000. And in my opinion, the Pro550 beats my lightly modded RX700.

got h-fi580 here....

my subjective pov :
what i can say is ultrasone got it's very own sound sig'
1st time all feels too harsh, treeble so sharp...(this are annoying...)
but after burned in it feels like the treeble tamed...like the sound become dull a little..

but guess what...i never liked hearing techno/house music music before...but with this ultrasone...it feels whoaaaaa makes me fly~~~

i believe this ultrasone gonna fit anyone that like to hear techno/house...
another thing if u wear it long enough it gives' a ache...maybe due to the pad....and closed design...

some ppl on head-fi said, there are only 2 things after u hear ultrasone, u just hate 'em or love 'em....

I don't think the 300 hours thing is true for Ultrasone's. I have a pair of Pro 750 and they stopped changing their sound about 150 hours. The highs stopped being ear piercing and the bass became more refined and tighter. I use an iBasso T3D with my Zune HD and it powers them well enough. I plan on getting a more powerful amp just to compare, but we'll see how that goes down the road. I had to use my amp with my HT Omega Striker and it sounds great!

Well, I have heard the D2000 but it was a long time ago and I didn't have anything of my own to power it. At the time it didn't sound very close in sound signature to the RX700 and several people on Head-Fi made it sound like a modded RX700 was about 80-85% of the way there to a D2000 except it was 1/10 of the price (considering that the D2000 is $350 now). The increase in quality of the PRO 550, coming from a heavily modded RX700, is very noticeable. It's also different enough that the RX700 can't be considered a certain percentage of the way there, IMO.

I agree that the Ultrasone sound signature isn't for everyone but for those that do enjoy it, it really makes music shine.

At first I was like don't you have the same pads as I do, then I checked the OP and was like oh frown.gif you have pleather. Is there a place where you can order replacement pads? Mine came with an extra pair biggrin.gif and have yet to touch them lol.

I will have to say the pads that came with the PRO 750 are pretty comfy, would probably rival the comfort of the AD700, but the tightness of the band was a bit much initially lol.

EDIT: I have to say yes Ultrasone shines in house/trance/etc genre, but I find it does well in metal, rock, jazz, and classical music as well. From what people have stated in other places in regards to Ultrasone...its either you love it or hate it.

Yeah, mine is pleather and ordering pads from Ultrasone would run me $33 plus shipping. That in headphone terms would be the RX700 that we've been discussing haha.

None of it's true. Headphones do not change physically after the first few moments of operation.
