In comparing the HSR-1000 to the HI-2050, is the fit virtually the same? Inside diameter of cups, ear space, clamping pressure?
 
I know one is open and one is closed, but how does the sound compare?
 
Thanks.

  I was finally able to get these godforsaken HM5 pads on to my Pro 80s. Very comfy as I had already tested the pads themselves. The sound remains largely unaffected, the sound stage has gotten a tad bigger. A good mod indeed!
 
EDIT: bass also seems a bit toned down.
 
Are those the velour pads? How does the ear space and depth compare to the stock pads?
 
I have the HI-2050 and wonder if the HM5 pads have more ear space.
 
Thanks.

I am using HM5 Velour pads on my HI2050. I do not find any significant difference in terms of width of ear space (but in depth, they do though by having a wee bit deeper space to breath) when compared against the stock velvet pads.

I just listed my Hi-2050 with Audio Technica AD2000 drivers in them in the classifieds, if anyone is interested.

Hi Guys,
I been reading most of this thread but still have a question.
 
What I would like to know is how "good" the Pro80 is in regards to blocking outside noise?
(EDIT: Might also be interested in HD6000, but it seems this one have quite a bit of bass compared to the others?)
 
I already have the 2050 and I think they are ok. Granted I do not have much experience of headphones, more been using IEMs (currently worth of note are Shure SE315 and SE846)
Unfortunately the 2050 are close to useless at home where I mostly use them - I am freelancing and have office in my home. Currently living in Hong Kong where the build quality and sound insulation between apartments are quite low, and I need to be able to blick out surrounding noise while I work.
 
As I said I am interested in the Pro80, but I am not averse to upgrade to a higher level (cost) if i can get any good suggestions / for example, how would Shures closed cans perform in terms of insulation and Sq compared to Pro80? Mostly interested in 840, but since I read it have quality issues I might stretch to 1540..

They are really good, and when you upgrade to the HM5 pads the isolation is even better. I can blast the music on full volume and press the pads together and not hear anything. That's how good it is.

Thanks DJScope,
I just pressed the button for a pair straight form the factory e-commerce site on taobao so I should have it relatively soon (living in Hong Kong does have some advantages).
Ill post some comparisons when I listened to them for a while.

Edit/Update: Got my Brainwavs HM5 Black velour pads and put on my 2050, definitely more comfortable and somewhat better sounsd as well, I felt as if the bass got a bit louder. Still too early to say though. Took me only few minutes to put them on compared to what many here say. What I did was that instead of pushing the pad rims into the slit right away, I first pushed them all over the edge, and then when they were well seated over the cups, eased them into the slits.

How are the pro-80 with electronic / dance music? I search headphones for enjoyable electronic / dance music but also for a little producing. Haven't found any information about how these sound with that kind of music.
 
Any opinions?

My main preference in music is Trance and I thoroughly enjoy listening to the Pro 80s. Though I do wish that there was a little bit more treble extension.

Ok thank you very much for the answer! Do you think it worth $115 which is the price of it in my country?

To be honest, I think the Takstar Pro 80 deserve a price tag around $150-$200, because it is better than a lot of headphones in this range. What country are you in?

The one you gave costs $77 including shipping to Israel, isn't that better already to buy it from here? I mean, here it comes with a year warranty and on eBay it has no warranty at all and also takes long time until it arrives..

My main debate is whether the headphones really worth $115, or is there something better for this price range so I will invest my money better..

My budget was at the start $50, I feel guilty for upping it :/

For the sound quality and build quality it's hard to beat. You can also try the Sony MDR-V6, but I've personally not heard it so cannot comment on how it will sound with EDM. But they're supposed to be a flat/neutral headphone.
