Thanks! And oh, I will :L3000:

 

Been switching between using my ELE EL-D01 and my Zuperdac as a source out of my laptop. Considering how cheap the EL-D01 is, I'm really impressed with the SQ. They sound a little bit different, but I honestly can't say that the Zuperdac is that much superior. Maybe a tad bit clearer, but atm it almost seems like the D01 is pairing better with the LD.. Luxury problem, though.. :)

To conclude, everyone hears differently and might be looking for a certain signature that either calls for more bass, more vocals, or even more details on top. My friends and I took over three hours of testing and finallizing our results for the best interest and help we can offer everyone here on head-fi.

So, i bought ISK HF2010 following this review. No regrets, but leaves me wondering how more open can ad700x would sound, or how planar would sound, or flat HD800s... but actually, this is amazing can, and apart from those glowing-exceptions cans i mentioned i dont really feel the need to listen to anything else ever :P


A bit tight clamp, but good for people without glasses and smaller heads.

 

The vocals on stock tho are a bit unclear. Like if you listen them through a door. Or burried in cotton balls :D

It gets fixed by raising highs (at least i used 5 column NON-band equalizer on the phone) You can use following software on PC: Foobar band eq, EqualizerAPO, RoomEQ

Night and day difference. Then the vocals sound actually like in real life. You can then listen to songs by lowering volume.

 

The bass... there is too much of it, but only on bass songs, especially hip hop/rap where they purpusely boost bass etc... but its ok for so cheap can, amazing bass quality actually. It goes down to 34hz (at least on my crappy testing)

 

I would like your feedback.

I'm glad you liked them! They are really unique as they are very clear and detailed with some of the best bass had in its' price range. My suggestion to you is.....there are better sources out there if you want these to shine! So, in most situations the sound source is the key for a better listening experience. But, these definitely do shine with better quality sound sources, eventually with so many to choose from.

PS. Make sure you give them plenty of time to settle in.....100 hours plus should do the trick!  Cheers!  :beerchug:

Interesting! Hope somebody gets it and shares impressions. Not exactly in the market for another full-size atm, but it would be very interesting to hear how they compare to Pro80. The cups look smaller than the Pro80 though.

Looks like the Chinese saw this thread ! I bought my Pro 80 in 2013 for €80 and now they are €100 and higher ! :blink:

I think I paid $50-60 for mine. Problem now is that they have been discontinued, which is why the prices are up a lot.

I hope someone will try the HD5800, and that it will prove to be a worthy successor.

Is it possible to replace  the stock headband of Gemini HSR-1000 to something a little bit bigger? I just got this gems and the sound seems decent after a momentary listen. But the headband is kinda in my way of venturing this gem to further.

 

This quite resembles the DT990 that I previously owned. That is even in terms of sound signature as well. I do realize though I need to spend more time over this to reach to some verdict.

This may strike as plain weird for some but can I buy the stock pads of Takster Pro80 from anywhere?

If you have the luxury( :bigsmile_face: ) of buying the ELE D02, get one. The amping capability on this is simply incredible for its price. The DAC chips is alike though.

Here you are http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Protein-Leather-PU-Earmuffs-For-Takstar-pro-80-hi-2050-Headphones/106916_1247731533.html

Why are the HD 5800 not available on Aliexpress? I don't want to pay 70€. Especially not when I only paid $48 for the Takstar Pro 80's.
