I'm running them through Xonar DG. I didn't mean the Pro 80 has literally no bass, I just didn't feel it had the oomph that the song asked for. Obviously the MH463 doesn't sound like a bass heavy headphone, it just delivers when it needs to. I should also mention that when the track does ask for some thumping and/or deep bass it doesn't even slightly overpower the rest of the spectrum which, for the price, is amazing. Like I said, it feels and sounds better in every way...
Own both of them, MH463 is superior in every way. The first thing you notice on the first listen is the spacious sound stage and bass which the Pro 80 really lacks. Some people say it's flat and neutral but for me it felt like it was almost nonexistent compared to other cans I had. It actually surprised me that the MH463 sounds so much more detailed, especially since the Takstars were so hyped so I assumed they had no competition at that price.
I already own the Gemini's, but needed something more open and with a straight cable so I've settled on the MH463 after some users compared the two directly.
Hi, I currently own the Takstar Pro 80 but the pleather pads have basically scraped off and the coiled cable is a nuisance. I wanted to try a more open headphone and so far my choices are either the hi2050 or a somic headphone. Now the problem is that I don't know how the somics directly compare to each other. I've narrowed it down to the MH463, mm185 and mm163. From my understanding the mm185 are an upgraded version of the efi-82 mt and the mm163 is more like a closed...
Hi, does anyone have the somic mm185/163 and could you compare them to the likes of a Takstar Pro 80? I need something with a bit more instrument separation and a tad more bass than the Pro 80's and from what I've seen the mm163 is a more closed mh463 and the mm185 is a upgraded version of the efi-82mt. I'm not sure which of these sound better, but I would either go with the mm185 or the mh463 since the mm163 has a coiled cable. If anyone has them I'd appreciate any info
Yeah I think that it's just this one, not sure if I will return it because I don't know how the shipping will go and I already payed for import taxes the first time I got them... Just got one question for you guys - any of you got Xonar DG paired up with these cans? Because I can hear some hissing or static noise in the background. It's actually audible and pretty annoying while nothing is turned on, and when I play music it becomes even more obvious on some songs. Got...
I've noticed some weaknesses in the Pro 80's build. The 2 small wires on top of the cups are getting flimsy and can be pulled up or down a bit. The other thing is the two plastic thingies on the bottom of the aluminium frames holding the cups with screws in them aren't really tough. After 3 weeks of use (didn't drop them or anything, they were taken care of) the right cup can be moved left and right a bit since it's really flimsy and I don't know how to strengthen them...
Here's a quick review for the Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80)   They got around 100 hours of burn-in and I'm running them with the Xonar DG. The only comparison I can make is with the CALs which are pretty decent too. Sadly I don't have any of the more expensive models because I'm always looking for budget cans.   Build quality: These cans don't look or feel like 50$ headphones. They feel sturdy and there's no noise from the moving parts (the CALs have a...
So since I'm on vacation my only source of music is my old, trusty HTC Wildfire which isn't the best reference but I have no choice. Right off the bat the Takstar Pro 80's sounded amazing. The bass has clarity and depth, the mids are much better than on my CALs and the highs are detailed but not too sharp. I'm hearing new subtle sounds I never heard before. It's pretty amazing that these cans are a lot better on the wildfire than my CALs on the Xonar DG. The build quality...
I like the CALs lower end of the spectrum but they lack in the mid range and they aren't really comfortable + they get too hot to wear now in the summer so I planned on selling them. Anyways, I already ordered the Geminis because they were on sale so I was hoping someone can tell me how do they compare sound quality wise. I know I shouldn't be expecting a much better sq than on the CALs, but hopefully it is a tad better and they should be more comfortable.
