Agreed. Dave was super fast in replying too when I ordered my WS55 pads.

 

They took five days to arrive in the Seattle area from Ohio. 

 

These are the best-yet pads on my modded S500s. They're the right balance of sound and comfort for me.

Good to know! I'm in Eastern PA, so who knows? Might get it before the weekend. If not, I can wait, but due to my current skin troubles I'm using the cans as speakers *ducks. My computer only outputs sound through my external interface because it's an old man with a broken headphone jack and an unsolvable driver registry.

I use my Monoprice 8323's as speakers all the time, they can pump out some good sound for a $20 headphone! biggrin.gif

Thanks Bro!
I am always looking for a Great *Buget-Fi* headphone! biggrin.gif

The Takstar Pro 80's will be next on my list I think, they are not $20 but get high praise.

Only so much one can do... You try to lay down rules and some just don't care and post anyway. :confused:

How would you rank the headphones that you currently have?

post #7498 of 8319

I would like to see a comparison between those two too.

Hey Grayson73!

 

1) DT880 Pro 250Ω - Desktop only cans driven by either the LD MK IV or the E09K, these are the most comfortable headphones I own, excellent for everything but electronic IMHO.

2) Ultrasone HFI-780 (HM5 Pads) - EDM, DnB, Dubstep, Trance and anything electronic.

3) SOMiC EFi-82MT - An great all round headphone that I use quite often, a little more bass than the HFI-780's but has a real annoying plastic creaking noise while wearing them.

4) JVC HA-S500z - I take them everywhere I can either with the C3 or iPod, grocery shopping, coffee shops and malls... Stock all the way.

5) Koss Porta Pro - These are my take to work headphones, open so I can hear the phone or a co-worker needing assistance.

6) Monoprice 8323 (Headband & Velour Pads) - These would be up there in the number 3 spot for their sound, amazing for the price but the only problem with them is the way they sit squarely on your head. The wife laughs every time I wear them. :D 

7) Koss TBSE1's ($29.95 on Clearout) - A really nice comfortable headphone that's all about the mid range, just not enough bass in them for me. 

8) JVC HA-RX300H ($9 at XS Cargo one day) - These have a really bad muted sound and very uncomfortable, I use them as the sacrifice when testing new tubes in the LD in case of problems...

 

Well there you have it, sorry it's not much in the way of a sonic analysis but there are many, many reviews out there that can describe the sound of all the above headphones much better than I can. I factor some bit of functionality into headphones as well.

 

From what I read about the Takstar Pro 80's they will probably slide into my list in the 2 or 3 spot. A closed headphone with the beyerdynamic build style, so if it is anything like the DT880 it will be perfect. :D
