I actually use SineGen but this link will do. you'll notice it at around 10 to 12 sec of the clip. But i have a feeling its because my unit is defective.

 

At 4khz, the sound is almost absent at the left driver. The sound pans extremely to the right. I wonder what effect it has on actual music listening.

I've noticed that in the video you've posted but using SineGen I don't get any such imbalance. So I think that the anomaly is in the video.

Could anyone say please : is there a big difference between Takstar HD5500 and Pro 80 ?

im going to buy pro 80 but i didnt like its shape. :triportsad:

my unit is defective. since i cant return it anymore, does anyone how it affects the listening experience. at around 4khz, the left driver is almost mute.

Looks like something is causing it to cancel out at 4k. But everywhere else within the range is still good?

It's hard to pick between the 2. I chose the Pro 80 for it's build quality and oval cups. I can't stand round cups.

yup. Just a sudden drop in volume at 4khz to 4.2khz . i understand that the frequency graph shows that there should be a dip at that point, but the problem is that it only happens on the left driver.

i like round cups. i dont like the shape and especially the cables around the cups on pro 80.

i thought i shouldnt pay more than $50, at first.
but cheap and poor quality headsets cause headache. so i thought i can pay a bit more.

i bought that i liked. if it causes headache then i might pay a bit more and buy a pro 80.

At the end of the day, its your choice. no one here should tell you what to buy. you take the suggestions and read others and compare. then in the end follow what you yourself think is best for you man.

 

hope you enjoy your HD5500 as much as I am enjoying my Takstars.

 

Cheers! :beerchug:

MaDMax - I hope you will share your impressions of the 5500 on this thread after you've spent some time with them. I, for one, would be interested.

post #1919 of 1919
