God idea, let me try another source and if that doesn't work them I'll try what you suggested. I can get a Beyers Headphones DTX700 for around $50. So not sure if I should buy another takstar and have to cover $20 international shipping.

I only have the technical pro hpt990 but I like them for edm and hiphop. They hit pretty nicely for bass but still has nice sparkling highs that aren't grating to the ears

Tested in another computer with HD Audio, now it plays ONLy in the right EAR!!!


I think I have it wired wrong, the right channel red should connect to red and ground black should connect to ground copper? right?

can anybody provide me with some instructions or pics how the wired theirs? I have recabled headphones before but this is hella lame

Ground and red for one side ground and blue for the other side..

Your own picture shows it all..

They are NOT shortet, they are connected..

 

IF they were shortet, they would NOT produce sound, as I have tried to explain a couple of times..

 

If they make sound they are not shortet..

Thats not my picture damn it, thats from your friend mc freddy on how its wired up from stock factory.

by short I mean connected, however it did produce sound on my sonar, but now on the other computer with HD audio., on which only the right side produced any sound.


So here is how I have it wired now what do you think? red + red and ground + ground .

Both speakers seem to be making equal sound now..but I'll need to do more testing first..

red is right channel, blue is left channel and copper is ground..

I just got my 2050. I am overall enjoying the sound coming from them though the highs sometimes feel too harsh making it uncomfortable to listen to at higher volumes. I hope that with some burn in that the highs get toned down a bit but overall I'm liking the sound really much. 

 

My major dislike is the comfort though. I think I got spoiled by my Sennheisers. Compared to Sennheiser HD598 they're just not as good. The pads are too hard I think and they're not deep enough which results in your ears touching the headphones.

Always so kind, humble and polite when you need help ??

Please remember who has a problem and who is trying to help..

 

How should I know where the picture comes from ??

 

Just wire it up like the picture from mcfrede and you are good to go..

Hi2050 owners: do any of you have experience with Somic mh463s? They are priced very close together and both have some devout fans.

post #669 of 2126

I have a pair on the way, toogether with some other somic models, I will report back when it arrives.

I'm looking forward to your impressions.

 

I've got the Somic Efi-82mt a couple of days ago and so far I prefer the Pro80 (both stock with HM5 pads). The Somic's sound good, it just that so far the Pro80's sound even better. 

 

I'll get back with more impressions when I've had som more time with the Somic's (I was in the US last week and picked up a pair of Fostex t50rp that is getting all of my attention at the momentdt880smile.png).

Thank youwink_face.gif

 

Nice reading.

post #673 of 2126

Any more reviews on the Pro 80's?  I'd, very much, like to get one pair for daily use. I used to be a big fan of the HD 25-1, until got bored. Now I kinda miss them, but wanna try something new and inexpensive. 

 

Pro 80s look soo good I have to have one. Actually I'm more interested in the sound of these. :D

Soundwise the Pro 80s are very nice. Most everything written about them here is true. My only complaint, as I have stated, is the size of the earcups. They are significantly smaller than those on the HI2050s which I find perfect. Because of this I prefer the 2050s just slightly over the Pro80s.

If that is the case, the culprit must be the pads, since most everything else are the same components, so changing the pads should give you the best of both worlds.

I am not quite finished, but recently I tore my Pro 80's and HI 2050's apart and compared them.

 

I have modded my Pro80's and they replaced my JVC HA-RX700/900 in the office and I would almost bet I could mod a pair of HI2050's to the exact same outcome (provided the drivers ARE the same, specs and looks suggest they are).

 

I compare the two phones here (work in progress): http://www.mcfrede.dk/projects/takstar_hi_2050_pro_80_design_review/takstar_hi_2050_pro_80_design_review_01.shtml

...and here I mod my Pro 80's: http://www.mcfrede.dk/projects/takstar_pro_80_headphone_mods/takstar_pro_80_headphone_mods_01.shtml
