    Takstar Pro 82/GM200 Review, impressions and discussion thread

    Will look at your post later. Currently there isn't any "problem" with the bass as I find the 3dB and 6dB bass boost settings to be good listen. The standard setting just sounds a little flat due to the subdued bass.

    Which is supposed to be a "newer" model? What sort of different paint job is it between the versions? Thanks.

    Takstar Pro 82/GM200 Review, impressions and discussion thread

    I driving the headphones directly from my LG V20. I don't listen to music with too much heavy bass but for bass-orientated music I surely feel the Pro 82 to be on a higher level. In actual fact I do think the Pro 82 is superior to the S680 in all areas. The bass of the S680 is full and fat while...

    Takstar Pro 82/GM200 Review, impressions and discussion thread

    I have been listening to the Prostar 82 for about 30 minutes now. Even before burn in this thing sounds great. A significant improvement from the JVC HA-S680 in areas of clarity, transparency and detail. Superb gear that is very nicely built as well. So far the only minor gripe is the bass on...

    Takstar Pro 82/GM200 Review, impressions and discussion thread

    Posts like yours surely add to the worry. There shouldn't be any difference in the cable length or dynamic range that produces a higher volume on the 2nd unit of the Pro 82. The volume of the headphones should be essentially the same, and the length of the cable should be the same as well unless...

    All this talk about the Pro 82 not doing very well with vocals (or otherwise), fortunately that does not bother me since 95% of the material that I listen to are instrumental music, mostly smooth jazz and jazz fusion (Earl Klugh, Lee Ritenour, Chris Geith, Bill Evans, Chris Spheeris, Dan Siegel...

    Takstar Pro 82/GM200 Review, impressions and discussion thread

    Thanks for the information. That was useful. When you mentioned the Beyerdynamic T1 has a disjointed sound from the rest, I can somehow relate to this comment. I think this is the analytical sound I was referring to earlier, the separation between instruments and voices. It's difficult to...

    Takstar Pro 82/GM200 Review, impressions and discussion thread

    I will probably get the headphones late next week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed they will live up to my expectations with my V20. Knowing by own standards (I find the JVC HA-S680 to sound pretty good with the V20), I think the Pro 82 will not disappoint.

    A picture paints a thousand words. One pair surely has much thicker pads than the other one. The difference was marked even by looking at the photos. I wonder how Takstar is doing the QAQC at their factory when they produce these headphones.

    I have the LG V20 and have read that all this talk about the "trick" for the V20 to run in high gain is a cheat as the headphones will sound the same with the V20 either in low or high gain.

    Thanks for the information. That's certainly good to hear. 5 to 7 hours a day, that's certainly quite a feat! The Pro 82 was chosen mainly for its comfort (reported to be more comfortable than the JVC HA-S680 that I currently have), improvement in sound quality will be a bonus.

    Takstar Pro 82/GM200 Review, impressions and discussion thread

    May I ask which has a more analytical sound or higher listening fatigue, the T1 or Pro 82? I used to own the Beyerdynamic T1 and Meier amp many years ago. They were sold in just less than a year as the T1 felt uncomfortable to me. I cannot seem to have the T1 on my head for long, usually not...

    Paid for the order ($76.54). Many thanks to those who responded, especially BenF who steered me to this direction (from the Sennheiser HD650 to this gem).

    I'm getting $76.54 instead of $75 with the Pro 82 (with case). How do you get the additional discount by posting "Head-Fi" in the order message? When we click on the "Confirm and Pay" button, the payment would have been completed isn't it?

    The JVC HA-S680 - S400's and S500's big brother is here!

    That's it man. Thanks for the response. That was surely useful.
