    They are played sequentially.
    You can download files from one of these links and play them in loop:

    Or you can use this one:

    I think you will really enjoy Takstar GM200 - it's a perfect basshead headphone, read the full review here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/tak...scussion-thread.849965/page-197#post-15148815
    You can find a 5$ discount code in that review, so it will only cost you 56.5$.[/user]

    I'm not exactly a bass lover, but I have always loved the bass in the JVC stereo systems, still the HAS500 are around $40usd. I'm probably will have that thorn under my skin until I get to taste the CNTs
    Thanks for the audio links.

    @BenF
    One more question. Does it really worth the extra cost of the HAS680 over the HAS500 ?

    Currently the amazon of my country has the S500 in $40 with shipping included, but the S680 are really hard to get.(at a decent price).

    @TylerC I would say its a marginal improvement, mostly just comfort and seal.

    Sound quality is very comparable.

    Just got my red pair back from my wife. Since she got the Mpow M5 she has not looked back. I added dynamat to the cups. Tamed the bass a bit and added some sparkle. They still need eq for the "stuffy" treble. Any bass head would love these. They almost jump off my head with bass heavy music. Definitely a baby SZ2000.

    I don't have S500, but S680 was a significant upgrade over S400.
    Nowadays there is a much better option though - Takstar GM200 https://www.head-fi.org/threads/tak...scussion-thread.849965/page-197#post-15148815

    But how much better ? It's actually $20 usd expensive than the S500
    I already have the HyperX Core (which are supposed to be the Cloud II which are some takstar pro 80)

    GM200 sounds nothing like Pro 80.
    It sounds closer to Fostex TH900MK2, but without the treble peak - see my review at the link above.
