Quote: Originally Posted by Wodgy Face it, man, the drivers are different. As I mentioned before, the other thing that convinces me they're the same is that when I emailed Koss, I was told they use the same drivers in the KSC-50 and KSC-35. That statement, straight from the horse's mouth, coupled with the fact that the graphs don't indicate any differences that are clearly statistically significant, leads me to believe they're the same. You...

Perhaps some mod could help but I rather pay little more to get shure, etys, ATh. These buds were sterile, boring, wimpy... $39 worth of nice apple design and case, NOT sound. What I got out of that article is that for about $10 you can make them into pretty good headphones -- less than half the cost of Etys...
Quote: Originally Posted by Wodgy Just looking at the curves, the PortaPro/KSC-35 drivers are clearly electrically different from the KSC-55/SportaPro drivers. This just reinforces the evidence that [b]the PortaPro/KSC-35 drivers use neodymium magnets and the others use samarium cobalt magnets. I come away with a very different conclusion. Look at how nearly-identical those three curves are. Apart from a slight difference between 40Hz and 120Hz,...
I posted the following in another thread: The KSC-75 are a bit more comfortable than the KSC-35 and, thanks to the rubber on the clips, stay on a bit better; however, their sound is a bit inferior to the 35, mainly because the latter have better bass. Overall, still a great headphone, especially for $20.

Also, if you go to Headroom's website and look at the frequency response measurements for the PortaPro versus the KSC 50/55, you'll see that there is a rather significant difference in the upper midrange (also in the bass, but that's more likely caused by different ear coupling), providing support to the...
The 890 are more "plush" and larger, but I much prefer the sound of the DT 231.
Sorry for dredging up a really old thread, but this is the only thread I could find about the Apple In-Ear Headphones. I was browsing iPod sites today and saw this article about a "mod" for them. Anyone have them and some Shure eartips? http://playlistmag.com/features/2004...ones/index.php
I haven't posted in a while, but I have heard both of these models and, with all due respect to the reviewer, think they're getting far more praise than they deserve Quote: Originally Posted by Max Minimum Krishna, it's the CM5's that are about 50 bucks. the CM7ti's (ti for titanium) are actually $30 more than the aluminum ones I bought. From what I understand, the CM5's are pretty hard to beat in an earbud in the $50 price range, too. I'm...
The only wireless headphones I'd spend money on are the xdream system or the Amphony system. Alternatively, Koss just came out with a wireless system that lets you use your own favorite headphone -- worth considering.
Long-time no post, I know Long-time Head-Fi members know that I've generally been, well, less than kind to the Bang & Olufsen A8. The few times I had heard them in the past I was quite unimpressed. Although I liked the design, I thought they sounded mediocre and were completely overpriced at $160. I even went so far as to state that the $15 Sennheiser MX 400/500 were better sounding earbuds. In short, I thought they provided horrible *value* for the price. A...
