That said, the PRO 2900 do not have the raw, meatier texture of the PRO 2500--which I also happen to enjoy, and in some respects can sound ever-so-slightly-distant by comparison (to the 2500).
While perhaps, respective to the comments above, representing a distinct departure from the "stock" or familiar "house" sound of the PRO 2500, the Ultrasone PRO 2900 nevertheless bring to the table a vivid and refreshing counterpoint just as technically adept and musically satisfying in their own right.
After buying and auditioning the PRO 2900 alongside the PRO 2500, I have decided to keep them both. Kudos are in order for the "THE German Headphone Company": Well done! and Danke schoen!
One serious shortcoming which should be easy for Ultrasone to correct is that the top head-padding on the headphones is inadequate. It is just too thin and narrow to do the job, and after a few hours of wearing these Ultrasones my head hurts from the weight.
For an example of headphone pads done right, see Sennheiser's headphones (although the EMF level from my Sennheisers was very high and I no longer use them for this reason.) which have two big soft pads, one on either side of the top of the head.
