I don't know/have any 'receiver' lol. Excuse my noobs question: What is a 'receiver' ?

Not know why someone refers to the TS-671 as an older model, it might(?) have been designed before a lot of other Takstar headphones, I think of the TS-671 as a Chinese knock off of the AKG K6XX series headphones.

I own the TS-671, kind of a funny looking (oversized cups) headphone and I think it would be nice if Takstar updated the design.

 

"Receiver" use to be called a stereo receiver, now called an A/V (Audio/Video) receiver, it's what you plug your home audio speakers into.

Well, this are some pictures of my (just for fun) modded Takstar HD2000.

 

Wooden cups and detachable cable. And also a vintage look (or something like that)

 

I don't really use them much, but I had some fun modding them some months ago, trying different mods, you know. I'll probably make some extra mods to this headphones in the future.

 

Now they sound fuller and warmer, with more sub-bass. Their highs are still quite unrefined (unrealistic) to my ears, specially comparing with more expensive headphones.

 

 

 

Greetings!

HD 5500 FR curve.

 

Never really dips. Looks good to me.

So, after a little more time, is this still your favorite over the Pro 80 and the Somics? And how would it compare to the Superlux Evo?

post #1040 of 2350

Still too early to tell. I love them all.

 

Added HD6000 graph, which is very interesting.

Well, that doesn't help me decide on my next purchase!  :biggrin:

 

I'm liking the Evo, especially considering the price, but the grass is always greener...

The EVO is awesome, but sounds best with some EQ around 4k. My first pair did have a channel go out though, needed repair.

 

The HD5500 is perfect for EDM. It does bleed a little into the mids with Metal, but everything is still clear. If you can buy it for ~$55 from taobao, its a great buy. $129 is a bit much though.

post #1043 of 2350

Once you tack on fees and shipping to the various Taobao agents, it looks to me like it's at least $70-75 for the HD5500. Still not bad, but that does limit its appeal compared to the others if it's not a clear winner.

Hey, look at these: Takstar velvet earpads under $9 ! I'm so tempted right now to order these and a Pro 80 :basshead:

post #1045 of 2350

I might throw those on my Pro 80. Good price.

post #1046 of 2350

No, incredible price acually :wink_face:

post #1047 of 2350

Can anyone tell me if the Pro 80 would indeed be the best choice for recording and mixing ? So these things are very important:

 

- No (or not much) coloration.

- Easy to wear for long periods.

- Great isolation (should leak no sound at all).

- Honest sound, they need to let you hear exactly what you put in.

 

A friend of mine is just starting off a small recording studio and I think these Pro 80's would be a good buy for him instead of the usual $200 bunch out there ;)

post #1048 of 2350

Does he like your somics ??

 

I would say pro80 would be a good contender for that assignment..

post #1049 of 2350

He has never heard my Somics, so I wouldn't know. :wink_face:

 

What I meant to say is: does the Pro 80's sound more balanced then the DT770 Pro's ?

The Pro 80 has a large dip at ~4k. This would need to be corrected via EQ for a neutral sound.

The Sony 7506 is the standard for Studio headphones at $~77.

 

I'm still loving my HD5500 over the HD6000, although neither are truly neutral either.
