Product Description

The exclusive design of the closed-back Ultrasone HFI-780 is accentuated by the polar-silver color. The HFI-780 contains all Ultrasone technologies such as S-Logic Plus, ULE and safer hearing. The HFI-780 is developed from the studio sector and is distinguished by a frequency response that is specifically tuned for DVD and gaming. Sophisticated home theater and music enthusiasts are overwhelmed by the impressive sound that makes it appear as though you are listening to speakers placed meters away. Gamers are impressed by the exact sound reproduction, making the gaming world come alive. The low frequency ranges are raised in order to reach the highest possible synergies with DSP-Systems like Dolby Headphone and Yamaha Silent Cinema. Through S-Logic Natural Surround, the sound moves out of your head and into the room around you. Direction and distance are more easily perceived, giving the illusion of being at a live concert. With just a pair of Ultrasones and your favorite audio device, you can have genuine 3-dimensional aural enjoyment. The HFI-780 is equipped with thicker ear and headphone pads, and comes with a new velvet carrying bag.

The sound is incredibly detailed with very tight bass control.

If you are reading this and wondering if a pair of Beats would be better than I can highly recommend you buy this over a pair of Beats.

I really wanted to like these headphones, but after long listening sessions, my ears are not only sweating, but also got very sore!

TL;DR version =

PROS = Deep yet controlled bass; clear mids and highs; wide soundstage; "fun" to listen to; low-impedance (easy to drive); deep earcups don't cause ear fatigue; short cord (1m) for easy portability.

CONS = "Sparkly" treble might be too harsh for extended listening; clamping force might be too much for some people.

Now for the long version...

This review might be a bit lengthy, so bear with me. I take product reviews quite seriously, and as a reviewer myself, I try to make sure that I am as informative as possible, and to be completely familiar with an item before reviewing it. Anyway, today I'll be reviewing the HFI-780, and for the past year and a half, the HFI-780 has been one of the few things in my house that I use on a daily basis. When I'm in front of the computer, the HFI-780 is almost always on my head.

First off, I'm going to give a brief background of the headphones I've previously owned, and how I ended up with the HFI-780's. My very first set of headphones were the Sony MDR7506 Professional Large Diaphragm Headphone, which I bought over 5 years ago. They are still some of the best studio headphones on the market. Though personally, I found the sound signature to be a bit too flat/neutral for my liking. I wanted something that was fun. So then 3 years ago, I jumped ship to open-back headphones and bought myself a Sennheiser HD595 Dynamic High Grade Performance Premiere Headphones.

Well I'm going to make this short but detailed and let me first start by saying I own Sennheiser HD650's , Sennhesier HD800's , Shure 1440's , Beyerdynamic DT 990 600 Ohm and just a plethora of other cans. These headphones are German designed and sonically aimed towards user's who prefer more detail than endless bass. That is not to say they don't have great bass because they do but I've heard much more bass heavy can's and these are an excellent balance that manage to keep bass important but not over saturate the sound so that it begins to interfere instead of enhance. Now I won't use lots of fancy Audiophile terms because if you are reading this review and interested in this can , it is not aimed at that group of users (although some of you are probably audiophiles so I'll thrown in a few terms here and there). Its aimed at the middle of the road user , someone who isn't going to spend $500 on a Woo tube amp and $600 on a DACmagic but someone that is willing to spend $80 on a portable all around headphone amp like the Fiio E6 or E7 to gain whatever enhancement they can at an affordable cost.

Now the best way to describe this headphone is detail , treble is well presented and full. Mid-range is up front and sounds clear , vocals come through well. Bass is as I described above and needless to say if you are a "bass head" then these will not be the cans you should go for (I would recommend Denon 2000's for that). And that's all I will say about its sound signature (except for music genre's). If you are reading this and wondering if a pair of Beats would be better than I can highly recommend you buy this over a pair of Beats.

I tried many pairs of headphones, read reviews and these are OUTSTANDING, what live surround sound they have and that is just off a computer and ipod touch around the house of course.

I won't be wearing these larger cans out and about. Connecting them to my sound system gave me near the same sound as my 7 channel system puts out and of course on that level you can adjust bass and treble and so on. Even with the pod and computer the sound was simply grand to me.

Shop around as I got mine recently for $204, tax and shipping included. I did check out some others of Sennheiser and Denon, both excellent but double the price and these just have a live sound and let me hear everything.

These are closed headphones and you actually get to listen without outside noises or outside noise at a min. These are NOT noise cancelling though but they will give you sound like you have never heard from headphones. I was used to the $20 pair of ear buds so this is 200 steps up! Again go to real audio stores and try out several pairs as hearing to all is very different. Music, movies and gaming types all play a role in how things are projected or heard by each individual.

When I got these headphones, I didnt expect them to be this much of a improvement over my current headphones. But I was wrong, when I put these on my head I was shocked. I heard things I never heard, not even with the AD700 I had before these.

The headphones band was tight for a while then it loosing up, also the headphones went thru the stage of burning in and still are. They sound even better now then they did when I bought them. They sound great while combine with the OPA627AU opamps that I using with my Auzen Prelude.

I wished I got these sooner.
