Just got the takstar 2050 yesterday. So far I'm really impressed. Definely the best headfone under 100 I've heard. Even playing over an iPod it sounded great. The soundstage is a bit small for a semi open can.but for the price is such a steal

^^^ I would avoid this vendor " Peaceful Taste E-commerce Co., Ltd." at AliExpress because he tried to up-sell me on the regular shipping cost, citing the Takstar HI-2050 headphones which contains magnetic material would be rejected from being shipped out by China Post. Instead he wanted me to pay an additional $8 fee to ship it UPS.  Please avoid this snake oil salesman!

In other news, my seller from China said my first package was rejected by China Post and he has sent another weeks later... sigh.

Not snake oil. China Post is actually starting to reject packages because of that. $8 for UPS isn't bad at all.

You can either buy from Taobao.com by using agent or you can buy from en.jd.com. JD is like Amazon in China.

They provide shipment to many countries, to Singapore they provide free air shipment and local pickup.

This is the link here. http://en.jd.com/product/victory-takstar-hi-2050-open-fidelity-music-appreciation-headset-touches-your-soul-metallic-silver/397416.html   it cost only USD $32.35 

 

Happy buying and listening! 

Joseph 


 That Aliexpress in a different layout and the price is the same too.

I recently ordered a laptop battery which was rejected by China post because Li-ion are classefied dangerous goods. He resent it through Sweden mail with no extra cost. But I would choose UPS for $8 any day !

Could anyone tell me if the Pro 80's are compareable with the Beyer DT70 when it comes to comfort ? Keep in mind that I will order the grey velours earpads at the same time !

Any more impressions? I like the 5500 over the M50 by quite a bit. They can take a lot of power too (2W)

It was an additional $8 on top of the China Post shipping fee, so in total about $26 shipping for $30 headphones. rolleyes.gif Not worth dealing with a seller who lists a shipping method that he can't fulfill.

I dunno, kinda torn between them.  More of the pros for me are towards the M50 though.  Maybe I just need to amp/dac it up?  It does sound a little underwhelming, but then again it's probably because I only have it plugged into my computer, no dac or amp.

Testing the 5500s on some Techmaster P.E.B., my ears are hurting now.  All that low end bass and it's still pretty clean and clear.

post #1167 of 4456

I like the look of the hd 6000 but I need to know a few things. can i listen gaming music/play video games with it and can I use a velour earpads with them?

That's the best part. Give it power, and it gets deep, but as the Freq response graph shows, it doesn't peak anywhere, making everything nice and clear. Mostly nice and clear anyway... with all that bass, something has to give in the mids and highs at times, but its a small concession.

You can use it for anything.

 

I like the stock pads, so I didn't try to find any others. You would have to find velours that fit.

Thanks for the tip. I bought those pads for my Pro80s (arrived a couple of weeks ago in the UK) and they make them very comfortable. Am aware of the isolation suffering though  - more background noise is infiltrating, but the increased comfort compensates.
