Koss KSC-35 IN STOCK!!!!

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
Don't walk... RUN!!!

I have no idea how, but APureSound managed to get a stock of brand new Koss KSC35!
These have been out of production everywhere for over a year... I am SOO getting a pair to replace my 75s.

How are these better than the ksc75s?

bass is the same give or take?

I posted information on how to order KSC35 from Koss.com even after they discontinued them in a couple older threads. Maybe I should have just made my own thread detailing the process.

It seemed almost like a "secret deal", and only select people who read the right thread could find the instructions. For those in the US, it seems like it would be cheaper to go directly through Koss (especially with the coupon code, I think it comes out to a little over $30 shipped), but it might be more worthwhile for those outside of the US to go through APureSound (just a guess), or if you plan on getting it recabled, then it'd probably be wiser to just order through APureSound as well (to save on time/shipping costs).

I'm glad these 'phones are still getting the respect they deserve at a $30 price point.

P.S. I'm not 100% sure that this process still works, but there doesn't seem to be anything to lose. A few members here recently used those instructions and they successfully ordered and received them. I used this method a long time ago to re-obtain my own pair, since they replaced my faulty ones with new KSC75 (which I didn't like as much).

Yes, I just recently tried the 'copy and paste the URL' method on the koss website based on your post, and it still works. It comes out to $31.99 shipped with the discount. Thanks for posting that by the way.

I would have bought these a week ago, but now I have a koss r/10 and my lust for the non coated 60 ohm koss driver has been satistfied.

Do the kramer mod on the grilles, but don't cut the quarter sized hole in the foam. Leave the stock foam pads alone. Drill as many holes as you can in the grille though. You will be rewarded with something of a ms1 sound but imo much more enjoyable and expansive than the ms1.
Any word on why? Your description feels a bit exaggerated, because they use the same drivers with enclosures that are marginally different. After kramer-modding I'd think that mechanically, they'd be very close.

Roger that.

I remember the PortaPros use the same drivers as the KSC-35. Or maybe my memory is faulty.

whoa. can i just slap on any resistors?
i'm assuming less ohms will increase my bass less than more ohms?

a touch more would be nice

Still Works, woot good thing since i have to redo my cable mod to my 75's. and gave my less modded pair of 75's to a iBud cursed friend.

post #15 of 53
i got them... and they sounded very strange indeed for the 1st hour... seems to be much better now after 10 hours of burn in
