Parts Express. You pop off the drivers and click on the ksc75 drivers. Shipping can cost a lot though, especially if you live in Canada! There are other similar ones that you can get off of ebay or somewhere for quite cheap, but I don't have the links for those.

7.29 after shipping =/

 

I was also wondering! Since i have spare window mesh, would i be able to use that instead of the other mesh shown in the picture?

7.29 = I hope you ordered it already lol!

 

The window mesh would work fine I'm sure (in fact, I think that's what I used anyway).

 

In other words.. go for it! Between the headband and the mesh mod, I think you'll be amazed.

I bought the headband for ~$5 including shipping and tax. I just found out that i lost one of my clips anyway

I got one of those and they fit perfectly, they have the same headband as the parts express one.

I'm glad that headband will work! Awesome.

 

Btw, I recently got a new Fiio E12 portable amp, mainly for it's amazing synergy it has with my ATH AD900X headphones. But, I also can't believe how good the KSC75's sound through the E12. Really amazingly beautiful.

KSC75 + kramer mod + YUIN foam pads + parts express headband = jaw-dropping performance. And this is with my reference frame being Hifiman HE400 and HE500.

Wow - thanks for sharing that. If I wasn't hearing what we are both hearing, I wouldn't believe you! These have to possibly be the best value in this crazy audiophile world.

After doing the mesh mod, what are all the other alternatives for foam replacement? Best bang for the buck?

 

With the mesh mod, would the quarter mod (stock foam pads) show any improvement in audio quality?

post #416 of 503
Have you tried the mesh mods yet? I basically just stopped at that point because they sounded so good to me. But you for sure can try other pads. For instance, jerg is using the yuin foam pads. I'm sure there's plenty of others that you could try as well. For instance, the porta pro pads are a bit softer and thinner.

I haven't done it yet since I lost one of my clips and haven't received the headband yet. I'm just collecting all mod methods so I can apply them as soon as the band arrives. But i'm already iffy about cutting holes into the foam so I just might pass on that...unless if I find some extra lying around.

I ordered another KSC75 and the Parts Express headphone on Amazon for $23 shipped. My other KSC75 uses the "Dynabrand" headband from Walmart, from a few years ago. I hope this headband is as comfortable, with very low clamping pressure.

Very light clamping pressure.

They sort of lightly caress your ears with P.E. headband, especially if you get better earpads (e.g. YUIN foams, Grado yellow ones, PortaPro foams). Stock Ksc75 pads are very rough.
