Well it is not my fault that people does not read the whole thread before they ask..

Gear mentioned in this thread:
I think Keller1 was referring to brainwash while it actually is brainwavz
just got them
sound better than the hi-2050s, more bass and less harsh on the ears by a bit.
Also the stock earpads are comfy which is surprising.
I recommend these over the hi 2050s, nice box too.
Coiled cord is also nice.
Sound about as good as my old dt-770s
I just ordered a pair of the Pro 80 Gemini version. As much as I like the HI-2050s I couldn't resist. I'm not crazy about the coiled cord but I guess I'll get used to it. Now I really have to sell off some headphone I'm not listening to. They will be here Thursday.
I got my Gemini HSR1000 headphones yesterday. I love their sound, looks and quality. But I got a big surprise with the actual size of the ear pads. The Gemini pads are significantly smaller than the Takstar HI2050 pads. I'm pretty sure I have read all 43 pages of this thread, more than once. I can't remember anyone mentioning this difference. I'm really disappointed about this because I do think they sound a bit better than the 2050's but they don't fit completely around my ears. The Geminis are definitely not as comfortably as the Takstars. Now I'm confused as to what replacement pad to buy. I'd prefer some velours but want to make sure they are large enough. For the record, the inner dimensions of my Gemini pads are 2 and 1/2 by 1 and 1/4. The Takstars measure 2 and 3/4 by 1 and 3/4. Any replacement pad suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I'm sorry to bring up the subject of pads again but maybe it will help someone else with this problem as well.
I have the Jaycar version so I could try them on the Gemini. I'm surprised they will fit as they appear to be much larger than the Gemini. How about velours? Are the Shures still the best bet? Can anyone give me the inner dimensions on those?
That is a subjective question. Impossible to answer. The best to me might be different to you or to someone else. That said, I love my Takstar HI2050s and my Gemini version of the Pro 80. I think the Pro 80s sound a bit better but the Takstars are more comfortable. I haven't heard the others.

Aren't you happy with your pair of 668Bs or what is up ? If you can't change it, don't worry about it, the 668Bs are a nice pair of headphones so you probably wouldn't become more happy just because you had bought the other headphone... because if you did then you'd probably be asking about the other headphone . Smile and play a good song instead and don't worry.
