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...

I've taken these headphones out to the park, excersized (not recommended) and out in public downtown. They have held up just fine. They are very sturdy. The cables look a little flimsy, but in all reality are 100% durable. I definitely recommend getting the HM5 pads. Takes the comfort from a 7 to an almost 10.

EQ is usually genre/song specific. You should keep it flat unless you absolutely need EQ'ing.

Oh. I asked because I heard that these need a +7db boost at 4k.

EQ is not so case specific, if you find headphone to bass heavy or a little bit bright you can easily fix it with EQ. sadly finding the perfect headphone for you is not an easy task and if you can get closer with modest EQ you should do it.

with the HI2050 i had to boost the 4K range and take some power away from the sub 1K range (probably the only one who did that).

I use a slightly forward u shape. I know that doesn't say much, but it's how I would describe it. It's definitely not a v shape.

Hey guys! Lachlan aka @a_recording has got his hands on the Takstar Pro 80 and has done he's first impressions on it! Review to come after a few week I suppose. Go give him your support!

I just removed the foam pads on my pro 80s. The sound stage improved a lot and treble was increased. This might go well with the HM5 pad mod.
