The Hammo needs to be modified, or else it ends up sounding a bit muddy compared to the Pro 80. The Hammo is loud and has great bass, but the Pro 80 is more refined. I kinda miss selling my Hammo.

 

Both headphones are better than the M50 to my ears, and both are cheaper.

I'm starting to feel that there is a problem with my headphones (takstar 5500, which i bought a couple of days ago). So while listening to some songs i noticed that during some notes there was this crackling sound in the right earphone of the headphone. I first thought that i may be imagining this but listening to a particular song yesterday made the issue very apparent. Has anyone noticed something like this happen with their headphones?

post #1581 of 2159

Is the crackling most obvious with low bass notes? There could be a hair bouncing around on the driver. More unfortunate scenario might be a loose voice coil. If the voice coil is loose you might be able to see it...If that is the case return the headphones if there was warranty.

 

In other news...Like I said while ago, I don't think pro80 is worth the extra cost over hi2050 judging the sound quality alone. However there is an exception. The exception is pro80+hm5 pads+making pads angled. Very easy mod. Just change the pads and stuff something between the pad to make them angled.

 

This mod makes the soundstage H U G E . Music gets spread out more leading to better imaging. I also feel that highs are less agressive with this mod. For me big soundstage and speakerlike presentation is very important and modded pro80 is awesome for that. Hm5 pads can be had for 17$ and it is definately worth it.

This is exactly the way I use my Pro 80's. I agree on your description.

HD6000 is good choice, if you will bend their ugly headband to state for normal human head)

Their sound is amazing.

Incipit, do you have anything well known to compare hd6000 to? I would like to get a better idea on how those sound. For example hi2050 sounds like beyer dt880 with some extra bass and some warmth that resimbles sennheiser hd600. What known headphones sound like hd6000?

I haven't heard many headphones (if you mean the expensive ones), but if we compare HD6000 to Audio-technica M50, for example - they have a similar sound character for me. M50's are more comfortable, but difference in sound is not as big as you can think given the price. Also, HD6000 are not so picky to the source as M50's are, and play well and loud even with Sansa Clip+.

If you want to get 6000's - you'll not be dissapointed with their sound, I promise) I didn't buy them only just for bad headband design, but maybe some day I shall not pay attention to that and finally give them a chance :rolleyes:

Thanks! I appreciate your input! I have had few higher end headphones. Beyerdynamic T1 is the ultimate top en I have had. Hi2050 got allmost to the level of beyerdynamic dt800 premium 600 ohm. Still the dt880 was better. But there was a larger difference between dt880 and t1 than there were between 2050 and dt880. Every now and then I think it is good to bring things back to the ground. These takstars are all awesome. But we don't want some overboard unenecessary hype train here. More experienced head-fiers get turned of by that stuff and in the end they don't care about how good Takstar were. If things work out I will make a modded pro80 vs sony mdr r1, nad viso hp10 comparison... Placing a 60$ against 300$ might be unfair but I am fairly certain modded takstars might take the cake :) I'f I ever do the review I will try to be as unbiased as possible. Of course people will think I'm a Takstar fanboy. But there is really nothing in it for me. I'm a fan of good headphones ...I have no affiliations to any companies :)

You had experience with pro 80 or hi2050? You can tell me which is the better? thanks!

Beyerdynamic T1, $1235 on Amazon... If you didn't threw 2050's away with disgust after this gorgeous one, then Takstars are really awesome for their price :cool:

What i like in all of Takstar's line up is the clarity of sound. Their price competitors doesn't have it at all, and difference with other $50-100 models on market is simply unbeleivable. Especially if we talk about Sennheiser, Sony or Philips etc.
