I've never heard of these headphones, i never see them mentioned at all, and they are only $50. I can't tell if they are open or closed either. I would prefer open. I can't find any information on the sound profile, or comfort of these headphones as well (there's very little comparisons in this thread, yes I've read every page).
It might be my sarcasm detector failing but...
First post on this page (53):
Got mine a couple of days ago. The fit is a bit loose. They sound good, but I prefer my momentums. Maybe it´s because they are my first open hp´s.
But will give them a couple of hours more to burn in and try again. But considering the price they are really great. So anybody looking for a cheap open headphone that sounds good should look at these. Unfortently I get some hiss when I have these plugged in my magni.
Couple of post later DoserCSX describes the sound of the headphones and also more on the comfort. All that is in the same page you posted on. If you really have red this whole thread then it is the biggest failure in reading comprehension in the universe...ever. Sorry if that sounds harsh but it gets annoying with this stuff. Reading long threads becomes a drag because same things are talked over and over again because people are too lazy to find out anything by themselves. First 1/5 of the thread is pure hype, that is ok. Then theres the small portion where the important stuff about the subject at hand is being discussed and then the rest and biggest part of the thread is mostly about people asking the same questions over and over again. If someone were to contribute something of importance later on in the thread it would get drowned in the mix of people asking "how these headphones sound" on page 124 or something.
If I recall there is something about how pioneers compare to takstar hi2050 somewhere in this thread. Search function will help. Also I will be getting pioneers some time next week and I'll propably post my impressions too. Hi2050 has been my favorite cheap open back headphone for a long time so I'm interested how these compare. Maybe I'll add something about somic mh463 also. I also have superlux hd681 but it's doubtfull I'll be comparing those to pioneers considering takstars outperform superluxes by significant margin.
