Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"The headphones come with an audio CD which provides some music but also really weird pieces like the sound of waves splashing along the shore, chirping birds, the wind circling around you, fireworks exploding in the distance, and pieces with odd high-pitch sounds here and there which make you feel you are being subjected to a hearing test."
_
"Given the entry level price, the audio quality is pretty good."
_
"For easy listening i use my Audio Technica ATH m50s, but these, oh jesus, THESE i use when i am in the mood for quake inducing bass."
_
"I allowed for an adequate time for the drivers to burn in through my audio interface with varying volume levels with all different types of music ranging from country, to blues, to jazz and then to dubstep and trap."
_
"As with many of the ultrasone line up they do sound better with amplification - i have a little dot iv and Bravo audio ocean which match well with these cans."
_
"I really cant say enough good things, it has become my favorite piece of audio gear."

Cable

Cable:
"Also worth mentioning is the fact that not only do you get great headphones, you get two detachable cables, (one is about 3 ft long and the other about 6- 9 ft with a neutrik connector!"
_
"My only complaints would be the straight cord you get for the smaller aux jack is pretty short, only .8 meters and they are a little plastic-y feeling."
_
"Most people who hate Ultrasone hate it because it's difficult for a source amp thin cable to reproduce bass and pro 900 adds fuel to the fire."
_
"A very nice and sturdy case that comes with two cables, 1 4 and 1 8 inch plugs, as well as the paperwork and an extra set of ear pads for when(if) you wear them enough that the original pads wear out."
_
"It comes with a really short 3 meter straight 3.5mm cord which is good for working close on a laptop for instance or just listening on an ipod, phones etc.. Eitherway good cords aren't expensive and since these are so cheap through amazon it doesn't matter to me."
_
"The coiled cord which is a good length only has a 6.3mm plug so i'll need a 3.5mm converter for that if i choose to use the coil in some instances with like my laptop without my midi box and some other peripherals."
_
"As its easy enough to buy longer cables and various adapters, the focus obviously ought to be on the hearing experience produced by these headphones."
_
"Doesnt need to be amped (but does benefit)extra coiled cablegreat carrying caseextra cable and earcupscomfortable (I often fall asleep with these on)VERY Well built."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"PROS: Closed back for privacy and isolation, replaceable ear pads and cords, full over-ear comfort (something that I appreciate as my earlobes are sensitive to chafing and pressure), sturdy construction, and very crisp, neutral sound."
_
"They are built very well and and are very comfortable."
_
"i just traded them in for some credit towards new headphones and i must say these headphones were ok. the sound quality was very good dont get me wrong but what i really didn't like was the comfort."
_
"Comfortable to wear as well."
_
"*Super Comfortable - For a full over the ear headphones, these are remarkably comfortable - even out of the box."

Fit

Fit:
"*Sound Isolation - Being closed back headphones and with the good fit, the Pro 750 provide a nice degree of sound isolation."
_
"I can easily wear the 750 for extended periods without repositioning constantly to find a comfortable fit."
_
"The ear pads are large, but fit well."
_
"I also tried wearing glasses the past few hours with them and have no problems with the fit."
_
"The fit and positioning of these headphones is crucial to the sound being perfect."

Level

Level:
"It is true the mid are a bit recessed, but it is not to a level where it starts to get annoying."
_
"Given the entry level price, the audio quality is pretty good."
_
"My biggest gripe with these headphones are the comfort level."
_
"I kept reading that as good as they are, they are still entry level mif-fi head phones."
_
"In all honesty, I go by my own ears and comfort level to judge a headphone."
_
"They sound good at all listening levels and are the best sounding ones at loud volumes."

Listening

Listening:
"A good example of this is like listening to The Grateful Dead, where music recording at the time was more shifted toward hi-fidelity more than boosted bass."
_
"This can be a good thing as you can kind of choose your own adventure with some listening, but other times it can be annoying and make you wish for a more consistent experience."
_
"Also, listening to In Flames' Only For The Weak was a very great experience, as the cymbals sounded crystal clear and not too bright."
_
"A good example of this is like listening to The Grateful Dead, where music recording at the time was more shifted toward hi-fidelity more than boosted bass."
_
"For easy listening i use my Audio Technica ATH m50s, but these, oh jesus, THESE i use when i am in the mood for quake inducing bass."
_
"If you want a fun-sounding headphone, these can surely be that - they have a smily curve to them, and add excitement to what you're listening to - but if you want accuracy and translatable mixes (which is what I was looking for) then perhaps look elsewhere."
_
"But even now going back, it's easier to realize even when listening to more simple music that their is just a more layered sound that offers so much more substance and realism."
_
"As a result, listening to the Pro 750 is always a comfortable experience."

Music

Music:
"A good example of this is like listening to The Grateful Dead, where music recording at the time was more shifted toward hi-fidelity more than boosted bass."
_
"Some say they are bass cannons best suited for Electronic music and perform terribly for any other genre."
_
"If you listen to a lot of vocal-only music, you'll probably dislike these headphones."
_
"The headphones come with an audio CD which provides some music but also really weird pieces like the sound of waves splashing along the shore, chirping birds, the wind circling around you, fireworks exploding in the distance, and pieces with odd high-pitch sounds here and there which make you feel you are being subjected to a hearing test."
_
"The only disappointment is a lack of space when I listen to some 3D surrounding music."
_
"Isolation actually isn't so great, with music playing you probably won't hear much outside noise but it can affect the sounds of your tracks and the volume you use."
_
"Great for electronic music, gaming, and movies (due to the S-Logic feature) as well as studio monitoring due to it's very colorless precision (Titanium drivers)."
_
"Great for techno and bass heavy music"
_
"They sound great with a wide range of genres of music."
_
"But even now going back, it's easier to realize even when listening to more simple music that their is just a more layered sound that offers so much more substance and realism."

Sound

Sound:
"Let's get another thing out of the way... when you first get these, they'll sound TERRIBLE."
_
"I use direct with my cowon mp3 players - the D20 and S9 seem to be able to drive these well while the i9 and i10 struggle a bit and the iphone does not sound great without an added ampThis pair of headphones is definitely one I intend to keepIt still has not replaced my DT990 (Beyerdynamic) + Little DOT IV combo as my referenceThis is a quality pair of cans and as far as the Ultrasone HFI and Pro ranges go, it is the most comfortable on the ears for extended listening"
_
"Both sound amazing, but there are some unique nuances to the Ultrasone sound that not all will appreciate."
_
"Its possible that some people will fail to hear sounds other people do, or that one ear will fail to hear what the other one does."
_
"The headphones come with an audio CD which provides some music but also really weird pieces like the sound of waves splashing along the shore, chirping birds, the wind circling around you, fireworks exploding in the distance, and pieces with odd high-pitch sounds here and there which make you feel you are being subjected to a hearing test."
_
"I'm also glad to have closed headphones, too often I had to turn the sound down when others were in the room and complained."
_
"5.1+ surround sound movies sound absolutely amazing on these things."
_
"Sound quality is very very accurate."
_
"STATS:Highs:6 10Mids: 8 10Bass: 12 10Comfort: 6 10 (when worn at long periods of time)Sound as-is: 8 10Sound with amplifier: 10 10"
_
"I find them clear, revealing, and enhanced- this is a hi-fi sound as opposed to reference cans."
