Am I Dreaming? I Think I Found Something Better Than The KSC75. - Page 2

Well, the newer versions started manufacturing in summer of '06. Add in a few months to get rid of the older version bulk.

I was just not a fan of the older version, the bass was boomy and the high frequencies were fake-sounding. I returned them.

I've heard that the Philips SHS391 has severe issues with comfort, putting an inordinate pressure in front of one's ears.

So did anyone check if qazwsx is dreaming? By that I mean compare SHS390 vs KSC75

if these http://www.amazon.com/Philips-SHM610.../dp/B000J2IA4C
have the same drivers and everything, then I must say, I don't like them at all. Is this what KSC75's are like? Because I think I'm annoyed by the mids/highs a little, and I'm not hearing much detail, as compared with my K81s and even my marshmallows

I doubt it. Just because they look alike and they're from the same company doesn't mean they have the same drivers.. the KSC-75 (60-ohm) and KSC-7 (32-ohm) look similar but one is good and the other sucks.

you've made me really curious! i like my ksc75 but their butt ugliness has prevented me from wearing them in public. the 391 may fit the bill. i'll pick up a pair next time i find myself in a best buy

The SH391 is only $4.99 Cad in factorydirect.ca and if you live in Toronto , you can just get it at their retail stores.

Just got myself a brand new pair of SH391 today.

Hope this help

Just to add on, I also saw some pairs at Target for like $8.

The aren't as good as the KSC75, quite nasaly in the mids, but otherwise a solid performer for $12 list. I have yet to hear a better cheap street-style headphone at least.
