Also, they would primarily be used for gaming, and I'm guessing from what I have read that the soundstage is fairly big--not as big as fully open, but better than closed?


Isolation in 2050's quite good, but if you don't listen on high volumes you can hear what others speaking to you.

The Pro80 are better than SL681;

The 681 are quite u-shaped; they have kind of fatiguing bass and to some extend harsh treble;

while pro80 can be considered balanced having some extension in both ends of FR;

Besides I did not like the soundstage of SL681.

Generally pro80 give you the feeling of high SQ quality.

 

In short: I've sold the 681 after 1-2 months, whereas the Pro80 are my basic headphones,

I have to mention that pro80 can be fatiguing after long listening due to their very close nature

From what i find, takstar pro80 have same sound than hifi2050, but with slightly exceptions. Among exceptions, hifi2050 have more comfort in relation a pro80, this enough for buy? Or other exceptions not compensates? Thanks!

Xdog hit the nail on that one. Hd681 has piercing treble and pro80 are overall better headphones. For the money Pro80 is hard to beat. However I still have not made up my mind which one I prefer, pro80 or hi2050. That makes cheaper 2050 better bang for the buck in my books... if isolation is not necessary of course.

Hifi 2050 seems to be more comfortable, pro80 have more bass, but there are others requirements at issue. Is necessary know what requirement each compensates

Hi2050 and pro80 are really similar.

 

-Pro's have more bass. Closed headphones usually do.

 

-Pro's have bit more highs, but highs on hi2050 have more air and sparkle. It's because of the velour pads and propably the semi open structure. Mostly velours though, it is that very distinct velourpadhighs sound :)

 

-Hi2050 have slightly smoother warmer sound.  Fabric covering the driver does this. Pro doesn't have this fabric so that is propably the reason why the highs are more pronounced on pro. Some people will propably say that pro has smoother sound. On bassy tracks that might seem so but when listening to mid centric music it is obvious to my ears that hi2050 is warmer and slightly colored. I tried pro's with the fabric and with that pro's mids are about identical to 2050.

 

-Hi2050 leaks sound, Pros isolate very well.

 

-For some people hi2050 is more comfortable because of the velour ear pads and because they feel more airy on the head due to the semiopen structure. For me there is no difference

 

-Pro80 has better headband padding and fancier plug. Only cosmetic improvements.

 

-Some pro's have coiled cable

 

-Pro's come with nice carry case, 2050 has extension cable

 

Those are so similar that I'd just buy the cheaper one. Which usually is hi2050. Pro is technically more impressive because it is closed and still sounds equally good to hi2050. There propably are some differences in soundstage and imaging. I haven't compared these side by side that much yet.

Thanks for your post! Probably i will go on pro80. But, before really buy i will wait response from other members

Personally i see no reason to spend $20-30 more for the worst sound of pro 80's... 2050 sounds more natural and airy - after good long burn in, of course. On moderate volumes they have good isolation and doesn't leak too much sound out of them. Also they have a good bass for me - not overpowering, but still present.

Come on, thats right! PRO80 is really about $ 30 more expensive in relation hi2050 where I found, the differences even worth it?

Seriously, this difference is not worth it. My next $100< improvement will be Philips Fidelio, but now i can't find better bang for buck except 2050's or TS-662.

Are you planning on getting L1 or X1? Make sure you buy those from a place that has good return policy. Even if you triple what you paid for hi2050 you might get headphones that are only sidegrades.
