Product Description

The PRO 550 (formerly the PROline 550) builds on the immensely popular HFI-580 (formerly the HFI-550) to create a professional headphone that is both durable and versatile. Tight and powerful bass plus precise and detailed instrument placement is given. Featuring the same 50mm Mylar driver able to crank out lots of volume and punch, the PRO 550 also includes detachable cables and ear pads. Updated for 2008, the PRO 550 now features thicker ear pads and headband pad, brushed aluminum nameplate on the ear cups and a nylon hard case to protect your headphones on the go.

These headphones should fit right in between the $100 and $200 range. At the time they were introduced they sold for about $230.

These headphones support spacial cuing in the form of specially placed Mylar cones behind a metal barrier that also serves as a electromagnetic field barrier. Ultrasone claim that mechanism provides the head transfer cues needed to make the headphones sound more like a set of speakers.

While I didn't find the headphones sounded like a set of speakers, I do feel that sound is more natural and robust than with direct placement headphones since it is focused on the outer ear rather than directly on the eardrum. However, I didn't notice any less fatigue while listening than with any comparable set of headphones.

This is a set of cans that will make you notice things in your music that you didn't notice before. The soundstage is strong and present but not too pushy.

If you're looking for a comparable product at a lower price you might try the Grado SR60 headphones.

You really need a good headphone amp for use with these headphones to get the full dynamic range from them. There's a guy that sells some nice burr-brown portable amps from his ebay store that are inexpensive and work well with these cans.

As far as looks, this headset looks very large on your head but is very aesthetically pleasing if you like blue. If you don't like blue, just listen and try not to notice your reflection.

Pros:
* Very robust hardware.
* Detachable screw-in cable means less chance you'll have to return the headphones for repair after a lot of use due to cable detachment.

I have owned these headphones - in their original blue "PROLine 550" form - for over 5 years and they have held up wonderfully and been my reference for everything musical during this time. I have had many other sets during this time, including the venerable Sony MDR-7506 and Sennheiser HD-280, in addition to several IEM's from Klipsch, HiFiMan, SoundMagic and Sennheiser, and I can say without any hesitation that the PROLine 550's (ok, "PRO 550s") are my favorite of the bunch. No, they're not the audiophile's choice for critical listening... they're not Grado's, they're not Senn HD-650's, they're not blah blah blah. I really don't care what they're NOT, I care what they ARE, and now several years into the game they are as revealing, enjoyable, detailed and wonderful sounding as ever.

You may be surprised but I have been using these to DJ for years, in addition to producing and listening to music. While they are certainly no Ultrasone DJ1 PROs, they have fit the bill for me just fine in my home studio. Since the bass is so well defined and the highs so crisp, they are perfect for mixing dance music - albeit at a larger physical size than most DJ headphones. Still, the fact I didn't have to buy two separate pairs of headphones for listening and DJ'ing was a big plus and remains so today. I will even take them with me on some gigs because I have come to trust and rely on their sound so much for my style of music.

I'll spare you all the techno mumbo jumbo about what goes into making a great set of headphones and what you should look for. Those are really just numbers, and what matters most is how your ears - and your brain - reacts to certain signals.

I'm writing this because I love this set of cans & I want to help owners of Beats find the next replacement should their Beats Solo HD spoil like mine.

<Summary> This is a great replacement in terms of sound, budget. Sounds better, is cheaper (I got this under $150). Design wise, beats looks better imo with sleeker body finish as in workmanship. Comfort wise, it's comparable. Ultrasone is bigger and heavier. Both headphones fits nicely on my head which is pretty small, I barely have to extend my beats and I don't have to extend the Ultrasone's band. Not a fan of Ultrasone's cable, as it's short (0.8m) and stiff so I've replaced with my Beats'. I'm female btw.

<Full story>

I'm not a sound pro in any instance, I just want to enjoy my music in an affordable way and to hear the clarity, details and the bass... and the "groove". I've spent hours in Tokyo's Akihabara trying headphones and in-ear alike and I had trouble finding a good set that sounded great, fits comfortably without costing over $200.

My experience with Beats:
First off, I want to assure you that I definitely have the authentic Beats. I loved my Beats as it's super comfortable on my ears, noise isolation despite not being advertised for it, and the sound signature -- R&B is really groovy, dance sounds great as the bass and beats are just enough. It's like it's made for grooving! I'm not a basshead, for example I find Sony's extreme bass series too much for me immediately when trying at the stores & Beats Tour sounds a little heavy for my ears over a long period of time. All in all, I really enjoyed listening to my music on Beats.

How Ultrasone Pro 550 compares with Beats?
