Seen your video and ordered one straight away. I was looking at the Sendy but under $200 was too hard to pass up. I’ll be doing a removable cable mod and not sure which connector to use. I do have spare 3.5’s laying about so might wire it like a Hifiman or possibly 2.5mm, ideally one that fits without any modifications.

Just got my set today, and I am quite pleased. These sound fantastic, amazing detail across the board and they take quite a bit of power. I’m not sure who rated these but “20mW” max is dead wrong. Build quality is solid. Takstar did extremely well at their price range, these are giant killers.

Hi, thanks for the informative review. I have a set of these on the way and I was curious about the pads you mentioned. The Shure 1540 seem nice, though expensive, I’ll keep them in mind. Has anyone tried different ones? I have a pair of Brainwavz HM5 hybrid oval pads that I will try when they arrive. I’m curious how angled pads like the HM5 ones will affect the sound.

I’m also very interested to hear about possible cable modifications.

Chances are they forgot a “0” on the max power rating. Totally possible with how they are rushing these out the door.

Also looking at these right now. It is probably going to be these or the fidelio X2’s for me.
I had a whole bunch of stuff stolen and need to replace it with what little insurance gave me to do that.

Z/P rather, finally unboxed these. Though he seemed initially disappointed. Basically undetachable cheap cables and heavy.

I had to talk myself down from purchasing, then I re-talked myself into these. Estimated July 27th delivery!

Why are yours different than the display photo? In their Aliexpress page they are listed as pleather pads but yours seems fabric.

They come with both pads!

Thanks JDM =) ya found out after watching you video. Any chance of purchasing Sendy pads seperately?

MusicTeck has them!

Are Takstar headphones reliable? I’ve never heard of this brand.

Listening to the sound demo right now. For the price I hear not much to complain about. I’m not currently in the market for anything new, but it’s nice to have so many options now.

Yes, they’ve been a pretty big player for a while now. They are the OEM for the HyperX Cloud / Cloud II / Cloud Flight, as well as the Cooler Master MH 751 / MH 752.

The above models are based on the Takstar Pro 80 and Pro 82 respectively. Well regarded as very good budget cans.

Detail monsters like Sendy Aivas? Interesting…

So my HF 580s finally arrived. Definitely needs more power to drive, I find that an amp is required. A GSX 1000 won’t even power these appropriately, don’t even bother with a phone or basic onboard sound.

But overall, more comfortable than expected, don’t need nuggets as Z used, but definitely can’t use the stock pads. Will order the Aiva pads.

I’ll probably keep these as a project set and see if I can 3dp a new outer shell to tune and make more room for a cable mod. Weird choice of cable as it reminds me of silicon tubing to supply air at hospitals.

Sendy pads are great, removable mod was a pain in the ass but happy with the result. I find n the quality to be up there with $1000+ headphones. The stock cable is made with the shittiest, frailest looking wire I have seen in a long time. The M1060 cable above has a nice amount of metal in it.

Which connectors were you able to fit?

I have my eye on these Eidolic 2.5mm and were thinking of having them stick out like the way it’s been done on the ibasso sr-1.

Mod complete. So much lighter without the stock cable. Sendy pads, New Fantasia 2.5mm / XLR cable.
