Another simple solution would be Grado SR60.

I'll check into those Takstars. Grados are out (for other reasons).

I prefer HD6000, it features clear highs and punchy bass.

All these advantages are messed up with stupid construction of their headband. When you put them on - it looks weird, like an alien. Plus they starting to press hard on top of a head quite quickly. For me it negates everything else =\

Whatever, sound is outstanding, and i would grab them without any doubt if they had a normal headband.

I prefer the pro80, but not by a big margin, it is just more pratical with a closed phone, so that my wife does not send me to Gulag or something worse.

 

 


You can tell me what is the main difference among both? My main use is for films and musics, expecialmente with bass. I've been searching, pro 80 is closed, like you say, which implies more bass, and sound more clean, what would be best for my use for films. This difference realy worth $30? Your reply will be of great help for me to finally decide among the two! I too dont have amp, some problem? Quality sound yet will good? Thank you!

Should i cancel my noontec hammo($80) order and get the TS pro 80? Could someone at least do a comparison with the noontec zoro hd vs pro 80? I know the hammos are pretty new

I've never heard the noontec's bout it looks as if it's on ear. I wouldn't consider the Pro80 portable due to it's size and the chunky coiled cable.

Not worried about portability as much as sound. Supposedly the zoro hd can give the ath m50 a run for its money. Hammo is supposed to be its successor

OK, I understand. Personally I would never use a on ear at home due to comfort issues but YMMV.

 

Edit: Sorry, just looked at the Zoro earlier, checked out the Hammon  now and it seems to be over ear.

 

Edit 2: I see that bhazard made a review on the Hammon, he also got the Pro80 so you could probably ask him.

Where can I get the Hammo for 80$?
post #1574 of 3163

Does anyone here who owns the Pro80 also have the JVC HA-S680 and can offer a comparison?  These two are similarly priced and I really only have budget to buy one. 

 

Thanks in advance!

The Hammo needs to be modified, or else it ends up sounding a bit muddy compared to the Pro 80. The Hammo is loud and has great bass, but the Pro 80 is more refined. I kinda miss selling my Hammo.

 

Both headphones are better than the M50 to my ears, and both are cheaper.
