    I haven't seen a tutorial, but it's pretty straightforward. Just pull the old pads off, then stretch the new ones into place. It takes a bit of force to get the HM5 pads over the lip on the Takstars, but you just have to pull them a bit.

    Guys, I need your help. I would like to mod the cable of my Pro 80s to be detachable ala Superlux once I get them, but I have no idea what components to look for. Here's my specific question: what components should I get and what cable would be ideal for them? The store that I can get the stuff from is eBay. I'd like a durable cable too if possible so go nuts with the price if you have to.

    Have a look here for the mod: http://www.head-fi.org/t/715176/diy-takstar-pro-80-removable-cable-mod
    In terms of cable. Any quality cable will be adequate. It's up to you how extravegant you want to go.

    its a super easy mod,
    for a cable take the original one
    sleeve it in 550 paracord and solder on a new 3.5mm connector
    you'll end up 
    with something really nice for only a few bucks

    The lip of the original HI2050 pad is much smaller than the lip on the HM5 pads so that it will go all the way into the gap without reaching the screws that hold the baffle to the cup. The gap between the baffle and the cup is very tight too. What I did was to cut the rim of the lip out (the part where there is rubber ring glued in the inside of the lip) and than stretched the pads on the baffles than pushed the lips into the gap using plastic separator that is used to pray open cell phones. That way it looks much more esthetic cause the pad doesn't sticks out to the sides of the cup and holds tightly in place without a lot of play.

    Thanks guys. I was thinking of getting a specific cable that one of you liked and that also struck my fancy. Anybody have any specific cables they particularly like?

    just recieved my  gemini hsr-1000 (pro 80) from amazon.
    sound is superb but it sounded me too darky, i changed pads with my older hm5 pads.
    is there any  mod too make it sound brighter..damn too dark sound forme
  13. Roderick
    Give it a while to burn in, or your brain to get accustomed to the sound. If that does not help sent your heaphones back because those are faulty. There is no way that pro80's can sound dark unless you got a defect unit.

    look in the diy cable gallery
    if you see something you like we'll help you make it
    if you can do the removable mod you can make a cable
    need more info pm me
    as this is off topic
    or go to the diy forums

    This might sound infamous, but I don't particularly *want* to create my own cable. I'll pay someone to make the mod for me in due time, the cable is where I could go ahead and purchase something from eBay. That's why I asked, though I do appreciate your guys' sentiment, I'm just not very much of a DIYer when it comes to headphones. Would something like this do? http://www.ebay.com/itm/111384013170?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
    I'm very much open to suggestions also.
