Yup, there is and I use it. Unfortunately there is one problem in that. IMO cable is nowhere to buy. If you want it you have to make one by yourself (or ask someone to make it). This is not standard balanced cable because it's crossed inside.
There are cables available, both 2.5mm and 4.4mm:

I received mine earlier today (10 days from China to Brazil) and am having a blast. I use glasses AND have dumbo ears, yet these are very comfy – after about 8h wearing them, I'd say not 100% but like 90%. Separation and imaging are indeed very good for a closed-back of this affordable price range. Texture is very good as well. Though I only have the Kuba Disco to compare it to, and some cheap in-ears.

Now I'm deciding between a Lusya Fever DAC or the Avani sold by VE on Ali to extract more out of them than my Apple dongle. My wallet can't go for the top synergies...
Glad you like them!

While Lusya Fever DAC is not bad for its price, Sabaj DA2 is an exact replica of SMSL Idea, and costs only 50$.
BTR3K at 66$ (with the coupon in the first post) is the best option to upgrade your sound chain, as it doesn't only sound great with Pro 82 wired, but it also adds the wireless option, allowing to enjoy Pro 82 on the go.
I paid 500$ for my B&O wireless headphones, and they don't sound nearly as good as Pro 82 v2 + BTR3K at ~130$ total.

I'm thinking of buying Takstar PRO 82. These headphones are very good for $50-60. But I don't think there will be a discount until 11.11. That's why I have to buy it at the standard price. But the shipping fee was too high for me. 12 dollars. This is a little expensive. The headset cost me (65+12) $77. Will it still be good for the price?

Or if I go around $100. Should I buy headphones like AKG K361, Shure 440, Sennheiser HD569?

There is a 4$ coupon for Pro 82 v2/GM200/BTR3K in the first post of this thread.

Exclude the 569, but bring in the K371.
