Of course it is. You must have enough ort's and odds about to fabricate up some new home for liberated 75's.

If it werent for shipping cost I might jump. (To Canadians, search the 75 on the 'zon you can actually get a cheaper deal by about 5 bucks when you factor in shipping)

 

The problem for me with the sportapro headband is that there's not enough of it. Even fully expanded, it feels too small. But yeah, just buying the sportapro's for the drivers is worth it (and exactly what I did). Slap those drivers (or the ksc75 drivers) on a parts express headband and you're done :)

I actually have a small head (does it show? Theres a set up for Homo Cardboardicus if ever there was one:)) So the size of the band never usually is an issue.

Only if you want them sent back in a new housing of some kind.  That'll teach you to be so considerate.

Yes, your head is on the smaller side ...

Look at me making excuses for myself to buy something I really don't need. You guys are bad for me. Anyways, throw out some suggestions for what On-Ear/Over Ear my Fiancee should get me for Christmas.

Had my first true Audiophile experience today and it warmed what little heart I have left. Boogie2988 (or whatever the numbers are) was wearing a pair of JVC HA-M5Xs in his latest video and I noticed. I commented something along the lines of "Hey, I notice that you have the JVC XX Series headphones. I personally would have opted for the JVC HA-S500 as they shoot above their tier." and someone came along and said "LOL@Noticing Headphones. Seriously who notices headphones in a passing glance on youtube."

I immediately thought of you guys and knew that you also would have noticed what headphones he was wearing.


This is funny. When I go work out at the gym I notice people wearing headphones and earphones. I always have to have a look see. What are them folks wearing. It is kinda funny because I must be the only person in the whole place that actively look at what people are listening to.. I did see a guy use his Grados when working out. I have no idea how you can wear Grados for working out but he had them on every time working out.

 

In fact I have no idea how anyone can wear full sized headphones while working out.I suppose if anything in your ears are not for you then that would be the only real choice but the thought of sweat all over my headphones is about a pleasant as sweat all over your favorite headphones. Lol.

It never pays to sit on the porch waiting for them to show up

Wrong race, but nice thought.:D

 

 

Just to keep the flow somewhat current. Back to working with the Panasonic RP-HC 101's which would be a great phone for 1/3 the price. ( I paid essentially nothing for mine so I can afford to experiment with them)

OK, gotta jump in here. Have used the PortaPros for years-not for home listening, but for biking. I read about iems being used for good seal and blocking out of wind, makes me nervous. To me, the best thing about the PortaPros on a bike is that you CAN hear stuff around you. I  can hear cars approaching from behind, other sounds around me. Doesn't seem SAFE to not be aware of things all around you while moving at a decent speed, especially if you have to ride in traffic. It's true, you hear wind noise; this is mostly an issue on steep downhill runs. But, as a wise person once said, "life and downhills  are short, uphills are long". Usually the whoosh of downhill wind is gone in seconds, and the long climb starts, which is when I really need the music around. The PortaPros, with the thin wire band, also fit nicely under a helmet, it you wear one of those. I recently got a set of the KSC75's, but haven't tried them yet.

End of lecture.

Oh Dman guys. I just plugged my 2stepdance to my X3 for the Panna euphoric session. These Panna 480s are stunning. They sound nothing like you guys would think they would sound. This is just beyond what I expected from these.  The sound is so large and in charge...

 

These are blowing my mind fellas. No other way to put it..Amping this thing put it on another tier of sound..WOW moment brought to you by the nuts.There is no way this sound comes from a $82 phone. Just no possible way..

post #16230 of 25523

(tried the SportaPros years ago, didn't like the feel, harder to wear under the helmet, didn't think they sounded as good as the PortaPros...but, this was a long time ago)
