    What's so special about those Sony CD900ST's vs other models/brands like the Beyerdynamic DT990?

    Sony CD900st is like shure srh840 and 940 in between with bass extended down

    So comparing it with DT990... DT990 is open back treble piercer.

    CD900st is as natural it gets with HD800 level of detailing and bass like audeze.

    Here's what I found: you can buy B-Stock O2 from JDS Labs (-30$, It says minor cosmetic inperfections, but who cares about it at all?). So, it would seem :) Really can't wait to listen with Idea.

    My brother owns the Beyerdynamic DT990s, so I'm looking forward to comparing them with the Takstar Pro 82s.

    What about Sony MDR-7506 compared to takstar?

    I have 120 euros, so before ordering takstar if you know any other better option under 100-120€?

    If it's correct CD900ST one - around 160$.

    I have ordered Takstar pro 82 and some impedance adapters.

    searching info about my current mobile headphones, a sony pair, i found they have 50mW max power limit. I have used them sometimes with my dekstop and no problem using them responsibly and not turning the volume up so much.

    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry it took me so long to get back but here are the measurements again with 1/12 smoothing and the specified limits. This time, I went ahead and just took a screenshot as it should be a bit easier to read this way?

    My Pro 82's finally arrived. They came well-packed and appear to have made it to Canada unscathed but for a couple squished corners. Lots of foam padding inside so the cans are all good (I ordered without the aluminum carry case). I'm at work and can't listen to them yet but I note in the little manual they came with that the impedance is listed at 26ohms +/-3db and the max power input is 40mw. I think that's different than what is listed on Aliexpress. Also, sensitivity is 98db +/-3dbs. These things should be very easy to drive...

    Weird - in your measurements bass is falling below 100hZ, in mine rising below 200hZ. Also, there is a 3khZ peak in yours.
    Is that the result of the "revisions" you made?
  12. goodiex
    Great for lower impedance, but max power input is going down with each takstar pro revision or what is happening?

    That's just a misprint in the Pro 82 v2 manuals.
    Here is mine from 1.5 years ago:

    yes that's exactly the same as mine.

    Had a chance to give them a good listen last night. These things sound very very good! They aren't as crazily detailed and open as my HE400i's, but they definitely have a rich, full sound and nothing feels like it's missing at all. They also isolate very well. I was sitting right next to the noisy window AC unit in my apartment with the TV on and the Takstars blocked out pretty much all of it, which adds a certain intimacy to the music. Afaic, the lowest bass setting is all I need. I was using my Fiio M6 dap which I believe puts out 70mw and with the volume at around 75-80% they were nice and loud but certainly not so loud as to blow up, lol. Oh, and yes they are super comfy! At less than $90cdn these are a real steal...
