KSC-35's broke; What are my next portable headphones?

What are my next portable headphones?

Heya, Im looking for some open, durable, sexy looking, not bass-deficient, comfy, small, "walk or jog around campus and listen to the radio with" portable headphones to replace my KSC-35's...

Any suggestions?

Those ATH-EM7's are sexy and stuff, but apparently are bass deficient...

I wouldnt want the sportapros... too tight....

Would those new Senns work?

Maybe get another set of KSC-35's somewhere?

it seems to me that giving those new PX100s a try would be a pretty good idea!

Are they repairable? Koss has lifetime warranty. You just pay for shipping. Check their website.

I don't know how you feel about Grados, but the SR-40, to my ears, is an unbeatable value at under $40. Plus they are more modern in appearance............kinda look like Sonys.

Well, Fixup.net modded some KSC-35's pretty strongly, and supposedly those are better... they claim that they will offer the KSC-35's for sale soon.. perhaps an already modded version?

Will SOMEONE do a...

"Unmodded KSC-35 vs. Fixup Modded KSC-35 vs. SR-40 vs Sennheiser PX-100 vs. ATH-EM7" Portable shootout?

I second that. I tried the SR-40s and the KSC-35s and the Grados are significantly better. You may want to at least sample them to see if you like them.

Ditto...however, I think he's is looking for something a little smaller.

Don't know...help us out here, Gluey...???

Alright. I HAD the SR-60's, and didnt find them better than the KSC-35's to the point where I liked 'em a bunch more... cord was too big, not enough bass impact due to the earpads, which i was too lazy to mod. and they werent that portable, IMO... I'm looking for something, if possible, MORE durable than the KSC-35, with that nice decent impacting bass like the KSC-35... im looking for something that would be good for jogging with my fixup-modded portable radio....

Gluegun: I'd say to take a second look at grados: at least the sr-40s. They seem to have been getting a lot of praise lately. Also, you may want to hold off and try those new senns, especially the 200s and 100s.

ex70s!! loads of bass, although not very tight or deep.. i love mine even tho, they are so portable and they isolate.

Uh, a1leyez0nm3, Gluegun owns a pair of the EX70's - and he doesn't like them all that much. 'Nuff said.
