To me the Pro80 is the Hi2050´s polite sister, it is more laid back and less aggresive..

I think the Pro 80s sound a little better then the Hi2050s.
So far I've tried the Pro 80s with my O2 and Yamaha receiver.

Before i was holding off on getting the Pro 80s because i was hopefully they would be offered with Velour ear pads.
But the Pro 80s current leather pads are comfortable.

You should try to put the Brainwavz hm5 pads on them that makes them even more comfortable.

Just showed up at my folks place. They're burning them in for me, so far they say that they love the quality, comfort and sound, (Dad is old school audiophile).

I was thinking of selling off my HM5, never use it anymore, so I kind of need to leave the ear pads on it.

Plus i'm fine with the Pro 80s stock pads

You should really try those pads on the 2050 and//or Pro80, mostly hi2050 where it also affects the sound.

After reading threats about headphones under 100$, I decide to dive in with the hi2050 and get a Xonar DG. I play games, music , watch tv /movies on my desktop. I used to have a usb headset with mediocre sound. I will give my own little review once i receive them this week :)

Spend a few extra dollars and get the Takstar Pro 80 (and the Asus Xonar DG).

Which one of these headphones would be best for me?

 

I would be gaming (immersive) 75% of the time and music/movies the other. Mostly alternative and some opera.

 

Also I will most likely get velour pads for them, I can't stand pleather.

Well you kind have the solution already..

taking the white stuff out of the takstars seems to have calmed the sibilance down, but made the mids a bit more distant

The Takstar Pro 80 (Gemini HSR-1000) come with leather ear pads (as far as i can tell) and I think the Pro 80/HSR-1000 sounds better then the Hi2050.

post #329 of 2654

Any velour pads that can fit the Gemini or Pro 80?

It looks like the DT770 pads or the AKG 240 pads might fit depending on what mechanisim they use to attach the pads.  Those pads are also for circular headphones but i'm pretty sure they could be stretched just enough to fit the oval cups.
