Thanks! No worries on the accent, it helped a lot! Really appreciate the amp part. Truly!

Hey guys I am loving my HI2050's after some serious burn-in and would like the option to EQ them a bit on some material. I listen to actual cd's straight from an Onkyo Integra cd player or an Oppo DVD player. Both sound awesome IMO. I have an old Harman Kardon EQ-8 equalizer (nice unit) that has 10 bands at 31.5 63 125 250 500 1k 2k 4k 8k 16k. What are your thoughts on using this to dial in the HI2050's? Also any suggestion on what frequencies to adjust based on your own personal experience?

I bought some velours HI2050 earpads together with the Pro 80 because I like the comfort they provide. Yesterday I'd put them on the phones and I couldn't believe the difference... all bass was gone with the velours earpads It suddenly were treblely headphones without any fundamental lows !
That got me thinking: could someone, who has both the PRO 80 and the HI2050, put the PRO 80's earpads on the HI2050 and let us know how much of a difference it makes ?
I had the JVC HARX700 and own the Takstar HI2050, after burn-in the Takstar is the better headphone. The Takstar has much more detail in the highs and still has decent bass. When I had the JVC's I hardly listened to them after a week or so but the Takstars are still making me want to listen more and more. They are fantastic for the price.

You should share some impressions and experiences. Would help reach out to more people. Takstar makes some really good equipment, and no one knows about them.
I would love to but I have very few headphones. I have nothing to compare to. actually I'm using the pro80 without an amp. What I can say is, for my first headphones, I'm really satisfied with this especially for the price i paid. And i'm someone from a third world country who happens to really love to listen to my kind of music.

No need to be afraid. All experiences are welcome. You already expressed that you think they are great, especially for the price. You just shared an impression :)
How do they make you feel when listening to the music? Does everything come through clearly? Is there enough bass and warmth? There could be many others like you out there that may truly benefit from it without you ever realizing it, just like it helped you, and I, and many others.
Im not really a fan of bassy music, but when I listen to pop rock songs that has bass. I really like the quality I'm getting, it has a good kick but leaves as quick, which in my opinion is good because it doesnt muddy up the track im listening to. The highs may be fatiguing but really enjoyable to listen to. Just know when you need to rest and pop the headphones back again. Again in a third world country along the equator. The cups can make you sweat. You'll 100% enjoy it in a good 1 hour, then maybe take a rest. :)
