Those 3 are all good headphones.

 

If you use Accudio on iphone, the PRO 80 is in there, unlike the HD6000. I like the HD6000 over the pro 80 though.

No I don't use Accudio. I've heard a lot of reviews of ppl liking the hd6000 over the pro 80's I am just worried the HD6000 will be too bass heavy. Is this the case or is it still a balanced headphone?

post #963 of 2078
Still balanced for sure and even if it is a tad for you, its nothing an equaliser can't fix

home use, go for the Pro-80 since they have coiled cable and built like beyers biggrin.gif. for portable use then definitely go for the HD 6000.

I've noticed some weaknesses in the Pro 80's build. The 2 small wires on top of the cups are getting flimsy and can be pulled up or down a bit. The other thing is the two plastic thingies on the bottom of the aluminium frames holding the cups with screws in them aren't really tough. After 3 weeks of use (didn't drop them or anything, they were taken care of) the right cup can be moved left and right a bit since it's really flimsy and I don't know how to strengthen them so the cup can actually get detached from the frame. The left cup is fine so I don't know if I got a bad one but I didn't notice this in the first 3 weeks of use... I'll try and fix it myself

Got some Hi-2050 today and been a and being them with my hd598. I think overall I prefer the slightly more fun sound of the Takstar compared to the neutral champ 598. Having fallen out of love with Sennhesier due to bad customer service experiene, I am going to sell the hd598 and stick the with takstar.

That's weird.  My first impression was that the build quality was real solid, but I've only used them a couple times and will be replacing them with a headphones that doesn't have a coiled cable.

I second your impressions there pcnoob101, My initial impressions (and current) is that the Pro-80's and Hifi-2050 are very well built. perhaps it is a quality control issue that weirdek encountered?

Ditto. Had mine since Feb, I think, and I've taken them outside with me on my daily morning walks and have had zero issues.

Yeah I think that it's just this one, not sure if I will return it because I don't know how the shipping will go and I already payed for import taxes the first time I got them... Just got one question for you guys - any of you got Xonar DG paired up with these cans? Because I can hear some hissing or static noise in the background. It's actually audible and pretty annoying while nothing is turned on, and when I play music it becomes even more obvious on some songs. Got unified drivers running and changing from the three modes it still exists. Not sure if this is coming from the cans or the sound card itself.

Sounds like from the sound card itself. Easiest way to test is to try it on other sources that you can plug into. If you don't get any hissing, then it's the card.

Hi

 

i have placed on order for a pair of HI2050

 

I have Beyer DT880 edition 32 Ohm,  and i am curious to compare also with my 2 pairs of Superlux.

Great! please let us know how it compares specially to the Superluxes. IMO, comparing it to the Beyer DT880 might be asking for too much:wink_face: 

but hey, I really like these Takstars. If I did not own both the Pro-80 and Hi-2050 I would "convinced myself" to get the HD6000s.

Hi I just ordered a pair of the HSR-1000. I am looking to buy an amp (budget around 75) and wanted to know what would be better the E11 or the PA2V2 or something completely different? Also do the HM5 pads make a substantial difference in sound quality or is it more for added comfort?

My personal experience the bass seems to be deeper (perhaps due to the better seal) so more of a positive for me. I don't really notice if the mids are recessed a bit compared to stock pads because I only spent a few hours with it and immediately swapped to HM5.

 

IMO the improvement in comfort is well worth the minor difference.
