Thank you for that! I almost bought the shp5400 for 260NIS (70$) and then saw your comment, for some reason the SHP5401 sells for 200NIS (55$). So thanks, you just saved me 15$!
55$ is an awesome price since the ksc75 sells here for about as much...
That's some pricy KSC75s
Joker, or anyone with HD-25 disassembling experience... Can you tell what's the secret to the HD-25-1 isolation? E. g. materials?
You know, I really don't know. I think it's a combination of factors. The cups are fully sealed at the back and made of a rough plastic. They are large enough to sit on the ear and cover it fully, yet not so large that they become semi-circumaural and leak out the side (like the Phiatons do a bit). There's also the fact that cup attachment to the headband is rather loose. They move around a lot so they can always sit flush with your ear. And then there's the clamping force, which is just great enough to remain comfortable. Any more clamp and they would turn into K81s. The pads are pretty thick, too - pads on phones like my Denons (HP700) have thinner edges and compress more.
