    OVER-EAR BUDGET PROJECT:

    Takstar HD2000 (closed back) (Note: You must purchase a pair of separate "velour ear pads with mesh screen" to do this simple MOD) (Just change the vinyl ear pads to velour ear pads and also remove the foam cushion covering both speakers, but make sure the velour pads has a mesh screen on them when you purchase them for dust protection. Also, measure the ear cup size as well for the right size fit. So, what do you get after modding them? Excellent transparency with the mids and treble, incredibly wide soundstage and head stage, as well as clean and quick bass and sub-bass. They sound very open and natural after modding them and cost hundreds less versus the competition!)


    OVER-EAR (from favorite to least):

    1. ISK HP980 (closed back) (the resolution on these just simply makes them my personal best with end to end liquid-like immersive clarity!)
    2. ISK HP2011 (closed back) (Has a natural-neutral airy life-like sound to them with clarity and transparency)
    3. ISK MDH9000 (closed back) (soundstage is big and extremely clear with a broad bass response, excellent vocals and precise hi-end details for the best DJ headphones I've ever experienced)
    4. ISK HD9999 (closed back) (soundstage is wide with a sense of openess, clarity and a crisp high-end with great acoustics and vocals)
    5. ISK HF2010 (open back) (soundstage is big and clear with a nice deep bass presence with excellent life-like vocals and excellent highs)
    6. BETOP BT-A50 (closed back) (best "SQ" sounding noise cancelling headphones I've heard on a budget price by far)


    ON-EAR (from favorite to least):

    1. KO-STAR KHM-681 (closed) (DIY myself to sound like Momentums)
    2. ZORO Noontec (closed)
    3. AKG K412P (open back) (with slight modification for better SQ)
    4. Koss Porta Pro (open)
