Yeah, I go through phases of liking one or the other better, and when I need a bit more bass, the sporta pro drivers go onto the headband. I only have one of those parts express headbands, and it's half broken, so I need to score a couple more. The headband itself costs about $1.99, but shipping to Canada is $30US lol. Hopefully @carpman will be the "parts express headband saviour" lol: http://www.head-fi.org/t/638757/koss-ksc75s-dont-forget-this-giant-killer-in-all-the-hidden-gem-hype/630#post_11480209

 

For the uninitiated, the sportapro and portapro headphones (and ksc35 clips) use the exact same drivers, and they look the same but sound different (mainly bassier) than the ksc75 drivers. All of the drivers can be interchanged amongst the other's headbands and clips. Confusing but cool.

I can recommend the Senn PX 95 esp. if you like the 35/75. Good for the price ~$35 now but sometimes dips to or below thirty on Amazon. Depends on how it fits but bigger pads and sounds like a 75 with a bit more bass or a 35 with a bit more treble. Again maybe a smidge more or less in the bass amount depending on how big the head/the clamp. A bit in between the two but maybe a bit more refined. Comes with the headband already though a much more sturdy one.

Oh yeah forgot about this one...http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ja&u=http://www.elecom.co.jp/news/201504/ehp-ch3000/&prev=search

 

 

 

 

I know at least one person who will be pretty excited by this one. You know who you are :wink_face:

Is that housing plastic?

post #28985 of 33110

I think it is made of "awesometanium"

Seriously though this must be the next higher up model , just a guess. using the same keeper magnets and 12.5 mm drivers of the 2000 series.

( 3000 series vs 2000/1000 )

Really digging that design.

Going to be very very hard to resist this one. Until I realize the exchange rates :(

 Thanks for the post Jant71.

 

The 1000 models are really tight and need a decent source to drive to their potential. Very clear. I can see where using it with a lesser source would give the various impressions that abound on the net.

I drive mine with the Ihifi 812v2 DAP and the C&C XO2 monster portable amp ( and v-moda tips ). Occasionally throw in the Aclear Porta Headphone Conditioner NIP-05TH transformer unit , but they don't need tightening up due to that extra front ring magnet.

 

Cable is nice too.

 

I really should spring for the 2000 or this new 3000 one.... among other things in the lineup.

 

help me get out of fullsized please people I am running out of space. ( got a good argument for me? )

 

One of the Elecom standouts is actually their lower model rear facing one, now discontinued, very nice vocal clarity, tight bass and vibrant highs. the rear facing 13+ mm driver makes things seem to appear on their own from nowhere. Glad I got a spare . Couple other guys here got some gifted and might speak to them.

Esfera model. Absolutely fantastic.

lol ok, it seems to be aluminium according to the press release. glad that they're not losing to chinese manufacturers who use metal even on $5 product. :p

 

and yes it is their next higher end model, though I said that it's elecom so their higher end means at around 15K yen.

Yep, Kakaku.com has a good succinct description there over the original press release so I'll paste it here...

 

 

Elecom announced a new model two models of earphones. Earphone single model "EHP-CH3000 Series", I will be released from late April the model "EHP-CH3000S series" with a microphone.

 

Both, high resolution corresponding earphone equipped with a 12.5mm diameter driver that reproduces the treble in powerful bass and a relaxed. The substrate to "Teijin Tetron MLF", employs a highly rigid diaphragm with a rib of the radial structure, to represent a rich sound field and natural spread. In addition, the pre-neodymium magnet, it is a to accelerate the vibration speed of the diaphragm, to reproduce a more powerful bass.

 

In addition, the driver, the ball piece, employs a sound hole structure to place a magnet coaxially "Magnetic Turbo Axial Port", the response becomes smoother from low frequency to high frequency. By employing the high rigidity aluminum material drivers case and the housing, to suppress unnecessary vibration, as well faithfully reproduces the music signal from the vibration membrane, thereby realizing a robust and light weight.

 

In terms of design, adopted the ingenious form of military style. Body color, were prepared two colors of black and khaki. Further, by adopting the depth ear cap corresponding to the depth 2 stage mechanism, in that conventional sealing than is improved and convey bass reliably.

 

In addition, the ear caps of three sizes that fit to choose, has a two-layer structure in which changing the inside and outside of hardness, and both the quality improvement and fit of the low-temperature region by improving tightness. To prevent Mali from, was also equipped with the excellent line cable to the resistance. Cable length is 1.2m, clean together are code keeper is included with the extra code.

 

It is to be noted that the model with a microphone "EHP-CH3000S Series", is equipped with a can talk condenser microphone. The remote control switch built-in microphone, and a call answer / call termination switch that can be operated by hand, the slide volume for volume control.

 

The main specifications, reproduction frequency band is 5Hz ~ 40kHz, impedance is 16Ω, sound pressure sensitivity is 100dB, the maximum allowable input 100mW. Body size 14.2 (width) × 33 (height) × 27 (depth) mm, weight about 8g (both not include code). The weight of the microphone is about 3g (EHP-CH3000S series only). Ear caps (S / M / L each two), code keeper, pouch is included.

 

Both price open.

 

 

I can see it now, Teijin Tetron MLF will be the next carbon nanotubes !!:wink_face: Can't wait for the Titanium Teijin Tetron, or triple T as I will call it !! That will be even awesomer!:tongue:

I have a discovery, which some have written about elsewhere, but I heard for myself. At present, at least with some bands, it is much better (at least, from a sound perspective), to listen to their music at home, through a good stereo or headphone setup, than it is to go see them live. I took my daughter to see All Time Low (her favorite band) Friday, at Monmouth college. They had 3 opening bands (uggh!). The sound was basically sludge blasted as loudly as possible, making it impossible to pick out vocals, guitars, bass lines (!!!!!!), melodies. It was basically a sonic assault. (my daughter didn't find it quite as painful, but she didn't know the music of the bands, and also found it impossible to decide if she liked it, as she couldn't differentiate much in the sonic sludge). All Time Low seemed to have a better sound system, and knowing the words/melodies/guitar lines definitely helps (I enjoyed the show, it was a fun sing along), but, sonically, it was still quite congested, blunt (on records their drummer is capable of subtle filigrees-live, it was pounding, super amplified bass drums and slamming on the skins), and, even knowing a guitar part, it was quite hard to pick it out and hear subtle texture variations that have me enjoying their basically hooky 3-4 chord music. It was even hard to hear the harmony vocals. Man, jazz shows are so much better in that way...try Dizzy's Club Coca Cola for fabulous sound (and a fabulous view, btw). This may have evolved from the sing along audience role now...what's the point of subtlety, if a thousand kids are screaming the lyrics at the top of their lungs anyway?
OK, old fogie rant over...

OK, haven't posted a Dogwalk Discovery in a while...this was made famous by the J Giles Band, had a great version of it, just recently came across the original. You can hear they come out of Doowop and gospel, but are pushing things along in another direction.



And, one of my favorite All Time Low songs, which they did play Friday night...


(man, the lead singer is 27 years old, and they have been recording/performing for 12 years).

OK, I tend to overload these, enough for now, enjoy the beautiful Sunday, time for another dog walk!

First I have seen of the Elations popping up for sale, if there is any interest. I'm sure some of the FX1X / FX3X fans may want to see if the FR100X is the range topping model they may have been wanting. The cans are pretty cheap as well but better be good after the HA660 they dumped on the US/ Canada. Either more of the same there or they did right by us this time =}

MLF I suppose stands for Multi Layer Film ? 

post #28991 of 33110

A multilayer type of PET diaphragm...http://www.teijindupontfilms.jp/english/product/mlf.html

 

Been around for a while and nothing really new. Just a new name to be more exciting. Philips new driver is a PET driver as is quite a few others.

 

A bit of marketing there to jazz it up. Same ol' it's in the execution of it and don't get caught up in the name thing. Though multi-layer is a good thing for sound whether it be PET, bio-cellulose etc.

Pretty sure that is the same company that makes the Twaron Angel Hair product.

 

Anyhow on the subject of MLF it sure is strange that nobody in here has bit on those new Panasonic HD10 (~210 layers in the  diaphragms). 

 

I don't place much weight on the current online impressions, something you'd have to hear personally. Worst case you could put them in a display case and look at them all day.

There's one "review" on Kakaku but it's not very in depth and not worth anybody's time.

+1. Great headphones! (Thanks for the recommendation, jant!) It's a crime how under-appreciated the PX95 and PMX95 are. I think even Senn's forgotten about them. rolleyes.gif

I've tried some of their iems (cant recall the models, sorry). Build quality is always excellent, especially the strain reliefs on the ones I tried, but the sound quality is just OK. Not bad, but nothing that stands out either.
