Close! First I religiously opened my massdrop email and saw it there, and then 2 seconds later I religiously opened up the deals thread and saw your post :-)

I used to own the HP100 and HP200, and was very impressed with both. This has been on my radar ever since release, just was waiting for a sale price. We need more people to commit!

hey peeps. i frayed my wires (short cord and the extension). had the chair legs on them a couple of times and now the outer housing is torn. Looking to replace both. Any recommendations?

Dammmit just got a HP150 and they have driver imbalances, right driver has a slightly louder sound than the left... It's only slight, but enough to annoy me.

 

I can tell it's a real nice balanced and airy sounding headphone though.

The connectors were nice n hot by that time - thankfully no damage. Let it hang straight while it cooled down, and it is much more supple now. Still has a curlish memory to it, but doesn't snap back the way it used to. Much better than before, but try at your own risk.

Finally got my HP200 (don't ask). Might have to try this trick. The capable is springy as hell rolleyes.gif

Or maybe look into a lunashop cable...

At least you got back on the horse;)

 

I also think that maybe you could just hang them straight, then attack em with a hairdryer. Might give it a go myself since the curl never completely went away - but they are much better now.

How do you compare these to the Takstar Pro80s?

Thanks! I like much the stock pads, I tried the HM5 pads but they sounds much bassier for my taste, otherwise, with hip hop music and some metal discs the bass boost can be welcome. It's a good choice to make a improvement in confort and sound if you like more bass!

For my pair I didn't see any change in sound(no increase/decrease in bass) but maybe that's because I have tissue paper rolled up and stuffed under the edge which kind of angles the pads. I think I'm gonna get my stock pair back and try em again.(I lent them to a friend to use on an old pair of denons)

These look awesome. I just requested them on massdrop, I'd love to try them out if the price was a bit lower.. :)

I have had Takstar Pro80 for quite a while and loved them, so if these are even better... :basshead:

How does the HP50 sound with this song?

More precisly, how do they sound with the synthesized drum instrument starting at 0:25, continuing the whole song?

 

I have a Nad Viso HP50, and those synth drums sound unpleasant to me.

Okay, these are the headphones I have been searching for without a doubt. However, all the breakages that have been reported in the yoke and joint area has really sketched me out. I plan on ordering these on Amazon because they are always good about refunds on defective products, but it still really sketches me out. Do you guys have any ideas on how to reinforce the area that keeps cracking on people? I was thinking about adding a layer of epoxy but that would definitely void the one year warranty. :( Has anyone reached out to Soundmagic telling them about all the reported instances of cracking?
