At first I couldn't believe my ears then I tried pad swapping and some mods. Sure enough the KTX opened up... WAY up.




Is that the yellow 414 pad on the KTX ?

If the mod improves the KTX, then it's a very good deal for some one who likes the headband. It's way cheaper than the Porta Pro.

Actually, the Porta Pro sounds very good with your kind of mod, too.

Well, imo, the KSC-75 isn't really the best portable headphone out there. Can't hear a thing in moderately noisy environments without maxing out (or coming close to) the volume. They do sound great though.

Follow my first suggestion and bring your rig into rat shack and demo the Pro35A (very similar to the KSC75). A/B compare the Sony for yourself. Thats the only way to be sure. You should Note there ARE forum members who dislike the KSC75, it all boils down to hearing perception and personal preference.

That is a valid point, they are really hard to frive straight from a portable. I regularly push my h320 past 75% volume to get their 60 ohm butts loud enough.

if they're anything like the erstwhile G42LPs, the KSC-75s blow em out of the water. i cant vouch for those G051s, but the G42s sound is just muddy across the board, nothing really stands out and really is a total mess. ok beat-around cans for the gym but that's it.

KSC-75 or portapro if you prefer a headband.

but go w/ kramers advice and go to RatShack and audition their cans w/ your portable setup...

Could always get a pair of Parts-Express mini headphones, and remove the cheap drivers and put the KSC75s on there in the cheap drivers' place, along with swapping on some better earpads, headband and earpad problems solved.
