Upgrade your pads. Improves comfort, isolation and sound

Okay, can you suggest a pad wich is better than the stock?

So far I love the looks of the Takstar HD 6000, but I'm also liking the Superlux HD-662 and the Takstar HD 5500.

 

Can anyone comment on how any of these three headphones stack up against each other? How do these compare to something like the Audio Technica ATH-M50?

+1 to this question and also which one is the most comfotable for long use?

you can see pictures on this thread of the pro80 with HM5 pads (post from march 5, 2014).

after testing the hi2050 not to long ago (mostly fr comfort) i am probably going to order the pro80 with HM5 pads. the only reason i didn't order yet is the superlux hd685, they should go into production in june (according to SuperluxCanada facebook account).

one question though, is it safe to order from sellers that sell the pro80 without the case? like this one:

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Takstar-pro-80-professional-mointor-earphones-high-quality-DJ-headset-music-HIFI-headphone-with-aluminum-case/1783549633.html

buying it with the case is 10-12$ more and i think the case can increase the chance of having the package go through customs and adding a few days to the delivery time (no customs under 75$ but they will check the value and waste time).

If I were you I'd just buy from Amazon. You'll get it quicker

post #2004 of 2654

not all of us are from NA :) i am from israel, shipping from amazon is 35$ ("10-20" days). and getting anything quick is not an option, local shipment is usually 14 working days (to do a 2 hour drive at most and some sorting) so international shipping is usually a month+...

Oh okay. Yeah I'd go for the caseless Pro 80s in that case.

Wow, those pads are cool from what i've read from that post. Bigger soundstage sounds cool. Do you think that the it won't push my left ear like the original pad does?

post #2007 of 2654

i don't know if it will solve it but the HM5 pads are dipper and softer so it should help. the push you fill could also be the coiled cable, this is one of the reasons people don't like coiled cables. if you have a chair with hand rests try sticking the cable between the chair and the rest (so you won't feel the coiled part pulling on your head). if the chair trick solve the problem maybe you should read on how to re-cable headphones (or just use the chair).

post #2008 of 2654
Okay thanks! I tried the chair thing you said but its not the cable that pulling. Its like the left pad is smaller (or my left ear id bigger.) Whatever, I'm ordering the hm5,thanks y'all.

Seems like the (normally ~$200) California Headphones Silverado might be a way to go. They're only $50 on Amazon right now. It's tough to find many opinions of these headphones, but I have only read positive things so far, and the sound signature is supposedly fun and v-shaped. Also, I assume they have a better build than anything you'll find from Takstar/Superlux, etc.

These do look nice, but the $48 one is a used unit. And also, you be surprised at the build quality and flexibility of the Pro80. These feel unbreakable. Plus the layout make them easy to mod.
