LOL I guess like audio this depends on personal preference and also where you live coz over here most girls want to look like that and make it happen, so at certain clubs I can see at least 10 girls that look like that but that's kinda of a trend here where even school girls dress like hookers for school thinking it's cool and guys like it and the majority of men probably do like it.

I'm personally so tired of Barbie dolls with more silicone in their lips and boobs than the amount of iem tips of all head-fi members combined.

LOL! Sometimes it's just social norms and trying to fit in(stand out?) that makes girls want to do this. You don't see it that often here but the occasional thong peeking through micro-skirts do happen.

Personally, I don't really mind how a person dresses as long as their personality is decent. Of course, one could argue how you dress/carry yourself reflects on your personality.

You wouldn't get along with my friend badbarbiedolly then, Kova! She's a plastic fantastic.

It's quite amusing actually because she gets work done on her breasts for example then more than happy to show the entire world, like a new car, pet or toy she's just purchased, totally oblivious to what the male species are thinking. Meanwhile the males..........
Now THAT's a discovery gentleman.  :beerchug:

So my latest discovery came in the form of the Portapros brought by a visiting medical student. What voodoo was done to make such flimsy little things sound like that? I was looking at getting the KSC75s and some kind of headband as a result, but came across the Portapros available locally for even less than the ksc75s at just over $20. For once living in this country hasn't led to me being completely ripped off. Happy days!

Hey I thought in your neck of the woods it's JuJu:)

 

Scary thing is they sound that good today and were designed in 1985. If you look for a cheap sale on KSC75's for cheap they snap on to the Portapro headband. You end up with two great headphones.

Lol, not quite. In my neck of the woods, this is what "bad JuJu" is: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-pacific-14718226

Ah, Juju. Pity people here actually support him. 

 

I thought the KSC75 drivers were very similar to the Porta Pros?  The KSC75s actually cost more than the Porta Pros from this place. Odd, that. Maybe they figure that the "ugly" ones should be cheaper ;).

They are very similar but titanium coated. Their sound is worth exploring if you like the Portas. They really should be cheaper, perhaps wait for a clearance sale of some kind.

Mmmm... we don't get sales on these kinds of things, really. The KSC75 costs pretty much the same as they do in the US, while the PortaPro is a steal in costing less than the KSC75 (while in the US they're over double the price). 

 

Ah, yes, I believe the titanium coating gives them more treble energy. Naaaah. I'll be happy with just the one pair, I think. And that money can go toward the Ostry KC06As if they turn out well :ksc75smile:

I currently have 3 which I rate as follows: Zero audio carbo basso > Vsonic VSD1 > Sony XBA3 (blasphemy perhaps?)

 

The VSD1's shell is completely broken and I just couldn't fix it.

The Bassos have driver-flex and one side is usually softer than the other now.

I'm left with the XBA3 but I just feel like it's missing something =(

 

I'm not a bass head but I do prefer having it in good quantity and quality. I listen to a mix of music, usually instrumental/classical tracks.

I prefer fun, warm, non-fatiguing IEMs that have a big sound stage.

Comfort, easy fitting and no micro-phonics are important.

 

Though my budget is around $120, I was looking at the Zero audio carbo tenore and the Audio Technica IM70.

Open to other suggestions of course.

 

Tenore is great.  Also heard good things about the Singolo, ATH-IM70, Ostry KC06, Havi B3 Pro.  B3 Pro might not have enough bass for you though.

post #24175 of 26060

so i ordered a pair of im70s today to hold me over till fx850 arrives end of week or so.  these will be my back up pair/beater pair if needed.  Sounds like it is similar to fx850, prolly not as refined im sure.  it will be here in morning.

Congrats on the Portapros! I love my Sportapros and kcs75's. You may want to consider drilling holes in the driver cover (Kramer mods) to control the bass a bit more.

 

You may also want to check out the AKG K403's. I found a pair for $17 and wasn't expecting much, but they are turning into one of my favorite headphones. Excellent amount of controlled bass, forward and engaging mids, very nice highs. Quite well balanced, and they look pretty good (they are the only headphones I can bring myself to wear out in public). So if you find a good deal on them, you may want to give them a try. For now though, enjoy those Portapros!

WHAT?! An AKG for 17 bucks?! Well, you don't see that everyday.

Yes, I poop you not:

 

 

 

You can get them for $40 or $50 on amazon.com, and I personally think they are worth that and more. For example, I like them quite a bit more than the PX100II's that I spent $70 on.

 

They are definitely excellent beater headphones that look good enough to be worn out, can be folded up and put in a pocket, and sound good enough to satisfy. The only downside is that they don't isolate worth beans, but then again, neither do any of these types of headphones.

Ooh, I think I just found my portable!

Then again, the Havi B3 Pro is something I'm looking forward to...

 

So many headphones, so little cash. :D
