post #11101 of 26092

Every now and then I have to harp on about the Koss KSC75's. Here is an excellent post about them (even contains a shoutout to dsnuts!), and this is an excerpt:

 

Quote:

My point is, I've spent thousands of dollars and thousands of hours in work and research into audio to try to create an audio experience better than a $15-20 pair of Koss KSC75's. As a overall package, i have never been able to achieve that. Of course this is subjective, i guess the frequency response of the KSC75's just sound pleasing to me. Not to mention it doesn't have all of the above problems of speakers and more. 

 

What I've come to understand after approximately 4+ years to finding audio nirvana is that there is no perfect way to engineer a speaker/iem/headphone. Audio engineering is all about trade offs.

 

You're free to spend all the money you want to find better finding audio equipment. All i ask is that you at least give the KSC 75's a try before buying more expensive equipment. You may find no improvement, or too little to not justify a nice refund. 

 

I've got the ksc75's on now. Hrmph.. X1's.. who needs them? Not me!!! (wow - awesome summoning of resistance there Wayne!)

Are they better than the AD900X?

I am listening to Sade on these.. One of my test tracks.. My mouth is dry and it is making my lips quiver.. Breath taking. Just breath taking.

 

Surprising. I have both my X1 and my S2 hooked up on my Audinst MX2. My A/Bing DAC amp of choice as it has 2 plug ins for headphones..

 

Obviously space and air wins out on the X1 but I am really surprised at just how close the S2 sounds in comparison..

 

A $350 fullsized fidelio vs a $115 in ears with similar sound..Philips..You guys better recognize..

I love my AD900X. But I want to say these have a richer smoother sound to them. The bass is fuller on the X1. Actually the whole sound spectrum sounds fuller on the X1. It has a really pleasing smooth sound to them. AD900X has a bit more treble and upper mid energy while the X1 has the more of a complete fuller sound with much better lower mid to bass energy. The X1 sounds more natural overall while having a good amount of bass end for even EDM.

 

It sounds great with DNB I was playing to burn them in actually. Reaches looow.. Fantastic sound. X1 can do all the genres the AD900X can do but the AD900X wouldn't be able to hang with the X1 for something that requires more lower emphasis. Female vocals shine on the AD900X. Rock and metal.  Male vocals and female vocals both sound excellent on the X1. Soul RnB, Jazz n trance sound great on these.  More of a complete sound on the X1s. Refinement is off the hook nice on these.

 

While these are being sold for $350 on Amazon. I lucked out and got them for $300 before fathers day. I am having a hard time paying attention to the NBA Spurs vs Heat game. Lol.

Such a disappointment I must say! The Spurs should've won in Game 6... but they have to mess it up, Big Time!
