Interesting, I've seen other reviews saying they sound quite open for a closed back, and I would certainly say so in comparison to MSR7, M50x. The CoolerMaster MH751 appears to be improvement over it as well. The way they decay or reverb is a bit odd though - the treble is quite sharp and mellower instruments just sound distant.I am sorry but the sound stage is not good on Takstar, its imaging is good but not its sound stage.
The drive of takstar is also an issue, you could run a 1am2 on a damn toaster, takstar is more hungry for power.
It also has some issues with the built quality.
Mine broke at the hinge connections, have talked to people that had their cable connector snap in a day and many other similar stories.
Also be extremely careful on Aliexpress, in this very forum we have people that made purchases on Pro 82 off aliexpress and got scammed.
All in all I believe that you can do better at that price.
At that price you can get iems like Fiio f5s which are amazing.
You could get the Retroprice cans or you could up the price and get safer bets.
I've had no problems with the hinges except the annoying clunking sound, but driver reliability is definitely a problem (I have the white box/initial run). I just started noticing a nastly rattling sound on the left earcup again, far worse than the subtle clipping sounds I had noticed before (which were fixed to some extent by spraying an air duster at the driver).
