Musical genres listened to (in order of time spent):
jazz, rock, indie, electronica, classical

Similar equipment owned or used: Ultrasone Edition 8, Ultrasone Pro 900, Grado SR60i, Ultimate Ears Triple Fi Pro 10, Shure E3C

Other hifi equipment owned: Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus

Why I bought these: I wanted top quality sound with great isolation to stop external sounds leaking in and stopping me enjoying my music.

Good points for the Ultrasone Signature Pro:
To start with a caveat, these are probably not a bass-seeker's dream phones. Having said that, in music which calls for it (e.g. Massive Attack's 'Mezzanine'), there is ample bass. But rather than it being bloated and resonant like with cheap phones, the Sig Pro's bass is crisp, quick and punchy. It has quantity AND quality, but with the emphasis very definitely on the quality side.

There is lots of detail available in bass, mid and high frequencies. You can easily separate out all the musical instruments in a recording. I noticed things that only the Ultrasone Edition 8 (at well over a thousand quid) brought out. For all the detail, your music is presented, erm... musically, as opposed to overly analytically. This means, in my experience, that you can listen to these phones for many hours without the fatigue that usually comes with highly analytical headphones.

The isolation is fantastic: at only moderate volume, you hear nothing when snapping your fingers beside your ears. In terms of sound leaking out, provided you sit 1.5+ meters from your colleagues you should be able to enjoy your music without inflicting much noise on them.

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. They've been sounding better every time I use them, so like nearly every headphone which has moving parts the sounds that you listen too will richen up over time.
Lastly the craftsmenship is second to none. Like a German car there built to last!
I would say the sound stage from these headphones are fairly close to what you get from an open pair of headphones...'Musical Bliss' springs to mind!

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. Bass is tight punchy and precise with fantastic mids and highs that add up to a richness of sound that's a joy to experience.

Sturdy build with Ethiopian sheepskin leather clad ear cups and headband is super soft and only non porous leather in the world which has an almost rubbery feel to it, which prevents any sweat or moisture causing leather from cracking over time as traditional leather can.

I'd recommend these headphones to anyone who wants audiophile quality amazing sound in a subtle luxury quality build.

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).

I've been listening to the Sig Pro non-stop since they arrived, and for my head they are as comfortable as any I've worn. My main home headphones are LCD-2 and I love their sound which seems to work very well for my preferred listening, I didn't expect the new ones to match the LCDs, and they don't, quite. But they are remarkably close. They have quite an open feel for a closed headphone and the Copland and Gershwin feel very spacious. I'm not a major bass head, but I dug out some meatloaf and felt really nice, absolutely bassy enough for me but still strong on the voice. Brass sounds really good, bold and bright - just the way I like it.

Next step, going portable. This was the main reason for buying them so I really needed them to behave nicely with my IBasso DX-100. And they really do. To my ears, they actually work better with the DX-100 than the LCD-2s. They more than match my ACS-T1 CIEMs for comfort and clearly exceed them for sound quality on everything I've listened to so far.

Brilliant closed-back headphone 27 Oct 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I've been looking for years for a closed-back headphone that can match the sound quality and wearing comfort of open audiophile cans. Closed headphones are just more useful in the real world with the isolation they provide, but most are suffering from uneven sound characteristics and a constrained soundstage. Finally, I found the solution in Ultrasone's high-end product for audio professionals, the Signature Pro.

The Signature Pro's sound is incredibly detailed, particularly in terms of a very precise mid-range and a tight, but sonically rich and deep bass. The soundstage is as wide as that of the best open headphones, which is almost impossible to achieve in closed headphones. Apparently Ultrasone's S-Logic technology (which hasn't always received rave reviews in the past) has now matured to a point where it makes sense for audiophile and professional use. The placement of instruments and voices in the left-right spectrum is wonderfully precise as well. Everything is well-defined and clearly separated but still retains enough volume and body to sound natural.

I own quite a few nice headphones (e.g. Sennheiser HD650, HD580 Jubilee, Momentum and Amperior; Grado RS1) and IEMs (Shure SE535; Etymotic ER-4S), but the Signature Pro leaves all of them in the dust. It provides a ton of these moments of auditory happiness when you discover something new in a record that you've listened to countless times. But the great thing about the Signature Pro is that it doesn't simply expose flaws in a recording, like so many overly bright audiophile headphones and IEMs. It has such a tonally rich and well-rounded sound that you can often hear for the first time what a particular instrument in a busy mix really sounds like. Individual instruments are much easier to follow than on lesser headphones, and that opens up better musical understanding of even the most frequently heard tracks.

In terms of genres, I like the Signature Pro best with jazz, classical music and well-recorded pop. It can sound a bit harsh on blatantly compressed commercial pop (sorry, Katy Perry fans), and its bass might be a bit too disciplined for hip hop and EDM aficionados.

One of the most amazing things about this headphone is that it can be easily driven by mobile players, even an iPhone. It's about as sensitive as the Sennheiser Amperior, which is one of the "loudest" decent headphones out there. However, the Signature Pro still benefits from being powered by a good amp (I use the SPL Auditor -- another fine piece of German engineering) with improved transparency and bass that reaches deeper than on portable equipment. Another crucial feature is the very strong sound isolation. These cans keep out ambient noise (and keep in the music) very well, so they are perfect for mobile and office use.

The Signature Pro is clearly built for demanding studio environments. It feels solid with an understated sense of luxury -- like a Mercedes -- and looks like the sturdy piece of professional equipment that it is. That might not be to everybody's taste, but if you value sound and robustness over flashy styling, you will be happy with it.

Like every product the Signature Pro has a few weak points. You can certainly find headphones that are more neutral. The Signature Pro elevates lower frequencies a bit, which adds warmth to the listening experience (but it doesn't sound bass-heavy at all). It also has a frequency peak around 10kHz, which probably improves spatial imaging, but can sound pretty harsh and metallic on recordings that are heavy on hi-hats or distorted guitars. Finally, no closed headphone can quite match the sense of airy, floating sound that open headphones provide, and the Signature Pro is no exception, although it comes very, very close. In terms of wearing comfort I found the Signature Pro more comfortable than any other headphone I own, but it's relatively heavy, and people with large ears might find the ear cups a bit small.

Overall, the Signature Pro is almost certainly the best closed headphone that you can find, particularly if you are a fan of a wide soundstage. And it's probably quite simply one of the best headphones in the world, period. Yes, it's expensive. But the incredible sound, excellent build quality and generous 5-year warranty suggests that this is an investment that will provide years of audiophile fun.
