Have been reading from HeadFi about Ultrasone Pro 900 and it seems to be every basshead's dream cans! Any idea where that can be audition/bought in Singapore? Checked Stereo's webby and they only carry up to Pro 750.....

TS, any comments about the bass of Pro 900 compared to the ones you mentioned here?

I auditioned 580, 780 and Pro 900 today at Tangs and was really surprised that I liked 580 better than the more expensive cousins! The bass sounded awesome for EDM and was so so for the other genres. I will make up my mind when I get a chance to test the 580 and M50 side by side.

580 is touted to have the biggest bass in the entry-level ultrasones... i did find the bass of 580 better than the 680 as well but not to my liking for the kind of music i listen to

go test. if you like lots of tight punchy bass, then 580 is the one for you...way better than M50

Tangs is also going for about this price but too bad no stock.

I ship direct from there n it's less than usd20. Using comgateway should be abt tat price or less, depends on size of box it is pack in. normally will take abt 2 weeks to 1 month.
