I like the sound quality of the HSR-1000 just a little better then the HI2050.

The HD6000 is like a ATH-M50(?), I prefer to use my HSR-1000 over my HD6000.

I had a chance to have a quick audition with M-50 and to my ears they have similar sound signature with HD6000.

yes, hd6000 is now $89. should've ordered it yesterday when it was $59.

yesterday the three takstars have "new" mark above them.

I use mistertao.com and ugomark.com. I like Mistertao the best, as they take pics of the item you bought before they ship it.

HD5500 > Pro 80 > HD6000 > HI2050

 

I never realized the HD6000 was similar to the M50. I feel the HD6000 has better highs though, and slightly more recessed mids. Just broke out the HD6000 again tonight, and the HD6000 sounds awesome off my HifimeDIY Sabre U2 and Aune T1. I was thinking of selling it, but I like it too much.

 

Highly underrated brand.

Oh snap, sweet.  Hopefully it stays that price for a week or so, so I can get my M50s RMA'd lol.  Just started the RMA process.

 

Edit:  Oh, it's got 2 day free shipping too!  Might just order that now.

Crap. About the same as I paid for the 5500, except mine came with no stand and is taking weeks to get here instead of 2 days.

But you'll have the sexy packaging still, lol. Mp4 isn't shipping the box with it, but a cool hard case instead.

 

Takstar shipped to me within 7 days, but I paid $129 at the time they first came out, so you guys are getting much better pricing.

It's actually a really sleek box, but I'll take a hard case and free headphone stand over it any day.

Yeah, those stands themselves are $30.  Gonna place an order right now!  Just deciding which stand I want, lol, because there's three you can choose from.

@bhazard  I already have takstar ts 671 and pro 80. If I order HD 5500 or HD 6000 will there be other sound characteristic difference? If yes, better 5500 or 6000? I listen mostly to vocals.

Thanks

post #1139 of 2654

Alrighty, placed the order.  $74.50, free $30 stand, free 1-5 day fedex priority shipping.  Good deal, thanks guys for all the inputs and whatnot.  Now to pack up my M50...

I would think the Pro 80 is already the best for vocals. You can't go wrong with either of the three. I haven't heard the 671.
