They're good with gaming and watching movies. That great soundstage really makes it a good experience.
takstar hi 2050 as well is great for gaming can say positions only people can think you are deaf because sound bleeds but with hm5 pads you hardly can hear anything around :D if put a bit sound up and how said about pads sound difference is same like pro 80 and that feeling when you think some one called you or something happened in room is weird when you realise that was just in game:D
i wonder how the new cloth pads for the HM5 will pair with the pro 80 (sound signature and isolation), the price is higher (3$ more per ear) but they look nice. can someone point to a comparison of pro 80 stock VS pro 80 with HI2050 pads, i know a read one in the past but i can't find it.
also MP4NATION offer a 10% discount (4THJULY2014) on most products (all but fiio) for the next 2 days or so if someone want to buy pads.
how about isolation? does it remains similar?
lol, completely forgot he tried them with Grado's. I saw Pro80 in there and my mind took care of the rest
excellent, I might go with those. Thanks for the info
Got the 5500, after a little listening I agree with some people that the earbuds could have been a little bigger. Not as comfortable as the xb500 I have, but those are held together by superglue and tape. In the same price range 50$ I tried akg 518, they felt small but are probably has the same size earbuds as the 5500 when I think about it.
The bass seems good so will try them for a while, if not get the Technica ATH-M50.
Got the Pro 80s. I love them! But is there any way to make the headband fit better? It's kinda tight compared to my Superlux HD 330s.

The Pro 80 has the exact same steel headband as the Beyer DTxxx so VERY sturdy. You can stretch it out of shape, and I mean you can stretch the Schiit out of it without breaking it. When I got mine, I used to stretch the headband out a few times just before I'd put the cans on my head. I did this for about a month. Now the clamping force is perfect for my head.
those look great!! the carbon fiber is amazing in there.
I do have a question: durability wise, they remain okay? no cracks, broken wires, etc? The Pro80 plastic thing remains sturdy? It is my main fear about those headphones...
