REVIEW: Koss KTXPRO1....an awesome portable headphone! - Page 2

post #16 of 20
i find it funny you say the pro4aa were horrible and the way you describe it being bad while they are known and from experience one of the only good headphones koss makes lol. the fact you say every thing sounds dull thin or muddy makes me think you dont know to much about headphones. there specs on the box are right and they are great i just think you missed the fact they are low sensitivity and 250 ohms. meaning you need an amp for them to sound good lol. do you use an amp with them probably not. otherwise they will sound just like how you said. obviously if you new much you would have known that. you should not say things about headphones that you dont know much about. those are great ones. probably used your weak computer to power them or something like a mp3 player does not work. the pro3aa sounded better because it does not need an amp its 60 ohms. learn more about headphones before giving advice. though your right those ktxpro are okay for the price. the sennheiser px100 destroy them though. and the pro4aa with an amp slaughters all of them. that were talking about. buy an amp then use your pro4aa that are sitting in your closet and then give a review about those then you will know some real hifi sound. lol. i cant believe you bought those and did not know you needed an amp and thought they sucked because you were just underpowering them the whole time.

portapro's from my experience are just a little quieter but identical even though portapros are more comfy. px100 are much better then both. but the sr60's are in a different league then these much better. but the pro4aa are even in another league then the sr60's there better then those when powered with an amp. there amazing. the pro4aa has great power through out all frequency range but most importantly why its much better then all and the only one that close to it is the grado sr60i is becuase it not just frequency response but it can play highs and lows at the same time with out distorting much at all the. others really suffer at that. from my exeperience i like the px100 the best for overall use with mp3 player as it also does not distort any more then the pro4aa and does not need an amp. sr60i are the next best and dont need an amp. they are not as portable but get better highs then px100 and also cant notice distort when playing multi frequencies like the px100 and pro4aa. then the pro4aa with an amp which kinda sucks to need one has the same highs the sr60i gets and cleanlyness and no distortion either on multi frequencies. but much more deeper bass to my ears. thats the only advantage you get with those compared to the sr60i but still sound better. i think if your at home and just want to use it for the computer sr60i grado's win and if you want it on the go mp3 player px100 sennheisers win.

I like these better than the Portapro. Bigger wider soundstage, more immersive.

I recently purchased a new KTXPRO1 from Amazon. I'm writing this because I feel these are way different than the ones I had a few years back.

First of all, the cord is thinner,the plug is straight, and the earpads are smaller and thinner. I called Koss customer service and they said they don't sound counterfeit.

As for the sound, the bass is shallow and muddy, the mids are more forward, and the highs are recessed. I also have the KSC75 and preferred my old KTXPRO1 for the better bass from the clamping force. These are not better.

I have owned or used many variations of these headphones and I have to say I am just not happy with these. I will try a burn-in but I don't think it will help. I'm also going to try thicker earpads. I know this will help but I'm not sure how much. I just hope the KSC75 is still the same because I use the more than anything else and they do wear out or get broken.
