Ordered the Gemini HSR-1000 from Tech Woot.

$58 + $5 shipping + $5.20 tax (Calif), Total is $68.20

 

Edit, I just checked "ResellerRating" on Woot.

Of the 223 customer reviews, about 1/3 gave Woot a very low rating.

 

I've already ordered, so I'm going to see what happens.

I would suggest that if you do order from Woot, do not pay more then the normal $5 for basic shipping.

I'm guessing even if you pay more for faster shipping, it will still only be basic shipping.

thread is still active, nice

 

im looking to buy headphones for fps games and rock music, takstars looks like good/value buy

now im between TS-671 and HI2050

if i get it correctly, HI have more bass and should be better for rock music, while TS have better stage/positional cues

 

HI is 15 usd less and i was almost ready to buy it, BUT i found that they can be uncomfortable on big heads

i dont have gigantic head, but lets say i have bigger head then most of my friends

actually i found that Technical Pro HPT990 is uncomfortable, are they completely same or they have same drivers?

anyone with HI2050 and big head can comment on comfort?

 

i know that comfort and size of head is personal, so ...

 

comfort is important to me, TS-671 should be comfortable, but is TS-671 any good for rock music?

i listen large range of rock, from hendrix to rhcp, some "metal" like iron maiden and sometimes i like ska

i prefer clear sound over bassy , instrumental separation, ... (what TS have) ,

but i dont want bass anemic HP like ad700 cuz bass guitar from steve harris/flea make me cower :)

i know there are better HP for rock, but can TS-671 deliver some bass when is needed?

 

or u have some other HP to recommend ? budget around 100 usd, but i can stretch to 150 if ...

spacious soundstage that is enjoyable for rock

 

thx for reading

Oh wow, i did not know that Woot had such a bad reputation. I've ordered 4-5 things from them in the past 3 years, everything came on time without a hitch... Never had to use their customer service so I guess I was kinda lucky.

Woot gets a lot of customer service complains, like no answering phones or email or shipments arriving with damaged product, but I figured headphones are a little hard to damage during shipment.

These are my go to Headphones , Very Neutral sounds lots of detail. With a nice DAC they sound perfect to me and it helps that I can m for Wear them for HOURS without any issues.

Using the TS-671 and listening to AC/DC (All night long) sounds good to me.

Not really a big bass, more like decent bass, but over al sound quality is good.

 

You do know the TS-671s are 120-Ohm?

Just tried the Stereophile Q40 - it's veiled and there's some freq. distortion when there's a lot of instruments playing at once, honestly, the  takstar only loses in build to the Q40.

I have the HPT990 and have to stretch them all the way for them to fit properly, medium sized head here and think they are exactly the same as the hi2050.
