 Ok, so I'm thinking about buying a pro 80, or HD6000 in the next few days.
 Did anyone try them both? I think I might be able to find the hd6000 for 20-30 dollars more than the pro 80. Are they worth it? Thanks.

The Pro 80 is overall better.

 Thanks man, you saved me money, and confusion.

Pro 80 for more precise/accurate sound
Hd6000 for more bassy sound
Btw, the pro 80 are in no way boring.

I've read in this thread that the HD 5500 might be better than Pro 80, especially for electronic music. Listening mostly electronic and wanting the best SQ even with some bass loss...HD 5500 or Pro 80?

"Best" Sq is subjective, it depends on the sound you prefer.
Closest to accurate w/ enough bass is proud
More fun sound, tuned for edm would be the hd5500.

Yes, I know it's subjective when we talk about the sound. But buying a headphone without hearing it, means that I need to make a decision based on some opinions of people who have heard it.

I want the better overall sound. For listening music I have a pair of studio monitors with 8" woofer and the bass is there and it's wonderful. It's clean and has impact. I am using Foobar for equalizing it into V-shape to make it sound to my preference. I am searching for something like this on a headphone too.

Has anyone tried the Takstar hi1500?  Not sure if they have the hi2050 drivers but are in a dj style casing?

I've never heard the H1500, but i guess its the open-back version of the HD2000. Technically they are very close to each other.

Maybe the HI1500 has bigger soundstage and less bass.The HI2050/Pro80 models are in a different league in terms of sound quality.

Here's a good comparative polish review:http://zakupek.pl/test/sluchawki/recenzja-takstar-hd-2000/2/

Wow. Selling a well known $200 headphones for a $80 headphone. :eek: I guess having the pro80 as my first real headphone is a good start.

I've also sold off my MT220 for the same reason
post #1439 of 2350
To me they takstar is clearly better than the MT220 as a portable solution. The MT220 was a little too neutral for my liking and misses that extra oomph the takstar has. But they do sound somewhat similar overall.

The mad dogs are good but in comparison much too dark. Once you get used to them (like not listen to anything else for at least a day) they do sound great. But I needed something portable as well and the Mad Dogs although closed and come with a shorter cable, they're kind of too big to be portable.

After burning in I also like the sound of the takstar over the MDs
