To TheEndGame: I don't think I have a large head so I'm hoping I should be able to wear the hi2050 without getting a headache and you can get velour replacement ear pads for the 668B on ebay so that's not an issue. I'm not really sure whish headband style I'll like better but I guess the 668B is the safer option in case I really do have a big head haha. But from what I can understand from your post though, is that you prefer the sound of the 668B for fps gaming?

To PurpleAngel: Thanks for that insight, I didn't realize it had that much driving power. Awesome!


But yep that is the next question, which is better for fps gaming? I am assuming the SR850 isn't it cos it's been mostly ignored and so if I replace the ear pads with veluer and remove the sticker on the grill of the 668B, will the positional accuracy be better than that of the hi2050?

Cheers for the help!

The 668B has great soundstage after the foam mod although it isn't very comfortable without the foam. I love them for gaming with just the velour pads though because the bass is reduced.

 

They'd probably perform similarly. I don't think you can go wrong with either so I asked you comfort questions. Go with what you feel is more comfortable.

The Hi2050 frankly are very comfortable stock using velour pads and not a lot of clamping force.  I've worn these for hours with no problems.

Hey, I had the Hi2050's for quite a while a now.  I just have a couple questions.  Why do the pro80's seem to be more popular than the Hi2050's?  Do people just prefer the isolation?  Also, for replacement pads for the Hi2050, do those HM5 pleather/valor work well without changing the sound much?  I just see them recommended for the p80's mostly.

 

Anyway, I don't think anything can beat these at this price point.  I actually prefer them over my sony ma900's in most ways besides comfort.  My ears get slightly hotter over time, they weigh more, and have more clamping force.  The only thing I needed to do was EQ some of the highs as I would get fatigued otherwise.  They also are driven near perfectly off my motherboard realtek source.

I think that people get the pro 80s more because of the aesthetics. The 2050 doesn't look that great. I'd like to see a black version.

 

The HM5 pads are great but I haven't heard about the velours.

To me my Gemini HSR-1000s (Pro 80s) sound just a littler better then my Hi2050s.

I hope it is just you, I've ordered them and it would be terrible to wast that money. 

 

@peter123 bought them a while ago, and tried them on the SR325i he owns. lets see if he tried them on the Pro80

It's a very tight fit but it goes on. You can be rough with them, they don't rip. I found the trick is to get at least a quarter of it on and for the rest of it, get you finger in there (between the pad and the stocking) and just prod your way around to get the rest of it over the flange. Once you get it on the first and second time, it's a cake walk.

Personally, I got mine because they're a fully closed design. With 3 kids, I need all the isolation possible. Now with the HM5 pads, it's as good as it gets.

it wasn't too bad putting them on but you were right. you had to stretch and be rough with the pads. so much more comfortable

Out of curiousity, do the Pro 80's headband extend more the Hi2050s?  On mine (actually Tech Pro HPT990s) I have to extend it all the way to fit my head.  I do wear a size 8.5 hat so I have a pretty big ol head.

It's the exact same size headband. The construction is identical except for the cup lids and dampening.
