Maybe they don't have that sexy case.

There is no case, they are sold in America so no international shipping fees .

Maybe you should be asking why there other ones cost more?

Somebody might be buying the HSR-1000 in bulk, at the source in China and shipping them directly to their retail operation here in the USA, bypassing the wholesalers.

 

I paid about $65 for my Gemini HSR-1000, great headphones for $65, even better when they cost $44.99.

Guys, I've finally decided to take the plunge and have my detachable cable mod made for the Pro 80s. Someone gave me a gift card for Amazon, can you help me and give me a couple of links to whatever materials my mod guy is gonna need? I'm a total noob when it comes to that, so sorry about that. I was thinking of going with an Amazon essentials or Monoprice cable as well, your thoughts on that?

Personally I've used this cable: http://www.mp4nation.net/brainwavz-hm5-spare-cable-3m for a mod. Very pleased with it! Sturdy construction and no microphonics to speak of.

 

They have a selection of other cables as well, all ready made. Personally I would go for microphone cable for the insulation.

Just received the Hi2050, to my dismay the band is different from the Pro-80 and consequently, it doesn't quite fit with my big head.

 

How far is the DT770 replacement headband compatible with the Hi2050?

If you have both the Hi2050 and Pro80 you can switch the headbands on them, and use the longer one on whichever takstar you like more. 

 

I tried it for a bit myself but went back because right now i prefer the Pro80. Did look pretty cool though:

Thanks for the tip, unfortunately I use them both at about 35km distance from each other so not usable for me unfortunately...

They were slightly small for me too, so I bent the metal forks a bit so they curve less. That extended their length and now they fit perfect. It takes a bit of force, but that might work for you too.
