great to hear that. can you please compare the sound from the stock Pro80 vs velour Pro80?

maybe this is why mine are taking so long to arrive? MP4NT says they are still waiting for them to arrive to the store, at least since a week and a half ago. now re-asking the same question as before: where did you read that?

I heard that the Pro 80 is really better than the ATH M50, is it true?
And what about the brand itself? Is the quality good? Like the durability mostly.
Sorry if my english is bad, i really confused about buying the Pro 80, since i have not heard takstar common.

I can confim that this new batch exists, since this is what I actually own. Got them around 2 weeks ago. 

They seemed like the real deal, but a little bit later I realised that there is very little info that there is a new revision and I wasn't sure if it was true, since even people who ordered recently showed pics of the old one. 

So I mailed Takstar directly and they confirmed that the new model comes with a straight cable and that mine are not fake, so there you go.

 

Can't compare them to the old one tho, as I never owned it.

can you post pics, from the cable, pads, etc?

QPAD and HYPERX (rebrands) had straight cables from the start so i can see why they changed it. now the only thing missing is the microphone input.

you are a lucky guy, where did you buy them? they probably have a lot of old stocks in stores so we are going to see the old coiled pro 80 for a while.

bought them 17 days ago (without case so probably old coiled batch) and the last update on the tracking is "Status: NULL , Location: CAN", i think this is the status i should see when the package is out of china but i am not sure.

IIRC I read about an version/alternative with straight cable in this thread many months ago but forgot all about it since none ever reported getting them..........

Sure, here are a couple of pics. Not exactly high quality, taken from my tablet, but it's the best I can get right now. I have the HM5 pads on, didn't use the regular ones much.

The only real differences from the old one that I can spot are the cable and that there is no foam between the driver and the pads. I think I've read this before in this thread.

Yeah, I guess it will take time to get the old stocks out, especially from stores out of China, which will take more time to re-fill.

I really didn't expect I would get a new model since I ordered from Aliexpress from a seller that doesn't seem to sell much of these and without the case too. Here's the link (I got it from this thread too, thanks for the link! Strangely enough, when searching directly in Ali I didn't get this store among other results at all): http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Takstar-pro-80-professional-mointor-earphones-high-quality-DJ-headset-music-HIFI-headphone-with-aluminum-case/1783549633.html

Cost me 52$, too, which is insane!

 

Don't worry, they'll come soon enough. When shipping from China waiting for a month for delivery is not uncommon at all (pretty much anywhere you are).

To add to my previous post, It's kinda funny how the store page shows pics of the old version. I was concerned about getting a fake because pretty much EVERY store in every part of the internet shows these old pictures. 

 

The carrying bag is also black now, btw. Here's a picture: http://puu.sh/aoeQS/c6571667b4.JPG

 

Oh and here's the confirmation mail I recieved from Takstar, in case anyone is wondering: http://puu.sh/aoeSb/07a40cc8d2.png

nice, takstar also updated the site, ¢4mm×2.2m black straight cable (the old one had longer cable but 2m is fine)

http://www.takstar.com/en/product/redetail-11-28-413-1

lol, i think i am the one who gave the link and i bought it from him later for 52$ :) sadly shipping to my country can take 50-60 days (or even more)...

also nice to see a company from china answering emails.
