I've been eyeing them for a while now, the kramer + headband modded KSC75s are fantastic but if there is potential of an additional big boost in SQ with just $30 more, I'm tempted to just snag a pair. Though IMO the price is a bit ridiculous for at least what quality of material you get with KSC35...heck it looks even cheaper than KSC75.
No reason for me to mod them. I like them as is. I'm not a modder. I tried the quarter pad mod, and Sennheiser pad mod on the KSC75 and it made them horrible to me. That was the last thing I bothered doing. The only thing I wanna do to the KSC35 is get a pair of KSC75s, and use the clips for it, which are 1000% more comfy. I had both on hand last time, but I bent the KSC75 clips and couldn't get them back to their original shape. The only problem I see, its that the 75's clips puts the drivers a little further, making it lose some SQ.... though that WAS with the bent clips, so maybe it will be better with a fresh pair.
As for the HE-4's half planar design, it honestly doesn't matter. It sounds organic, and very much like the HE400, just better balanced. I think they should try the half planar design again, if only for the massive increase in comfort due to less weight. I LIKE that they are unique that way.Edited by Mad Lust Envy - 11/15/12 at 3:00pm
