Yeah those are PortaPros. They are like that.

Man modding the KSC75s was so easy! Drilled the holes in the driver cover and using some thick soft foam pads from a Sennheiser headset I had. I already had an old pair of lightweight headphones for the headband. They sound so dynamic and fun for the $8.99 I spent!

Where is the best place to buy a pair of KSC75's in the US please?

 

On amazon they sell for $39 and on the Porta site they say $49 :(

One minute on amazon US shows me that they are available for less than $20 including shipping, and that includes items sold directly by amazon as well as market and "fulfilled by amazon" deals.

You know what happened, I was guided onto this thread from the Altman Tera website which said the best headphone with the Tera player is the Koss PortaPro with the Kramer mod.

 

It's the PortaPro which is $39 :-

 

The KSC 75 is $15 on Amazon.

 

I was looking for a good second pair of head phones to start a cheap but classic collection of headphones

 

I have at the moment HD650, and IE80s

They aren't the best headphones (Koss KSC75) in the world but modded they can compare with headphones up to $200 imo. They have a nice detailed sound and with some EQ they can be pretty punchy and hit hard for their size. Don't expect them to rattle your brain but they'll definitely impress you for their size and price. They aren't incredibly revealing (but they are detailed) so they should be good with streaming pandora without  making it sound too bad.

 

I usually wear mine around the house doing chores with a Sound Blaster E1 connected through USB OTG Out into the E1. I find it increases the detail some and makes the bass punchier and the treble more airy.

 

I'm also thinking of switching the cable to one with a mic.

 

Replacement pads are cheap as well at around 3 pair for $5 or so from Amazon.
