This is essentially driving me nuts. I have both. I plan on keeping only one set. For reasons of personal preference, I am getting the cheapo part-express headband for whichever pair of drivers I keep. I am holding both sets of drivers to my ear with the same amount of pressure (the amount of pressure that I expect will be applied when using the cheapo headband), and playing them on my Samsung Galaxy SII using Poweramp. The problem is that I can't decide which drivers I like better.
For a while, I thought it was a given that I would be keeping the ksc75's. They sound great. They are half the price of the portapro. They seem to handle the treble better. Not as much bass, but possibly also less muddier (although now I am not so sure).
But I keep finding myself gravitating to the portapro's. I don't know if it is a better "soundstage" or spatial-ness or whatever, but they just seem to sound fuller, and I find myself getting lost in the music more, and enjoying the music more, with the portapros than with the ksc75's. I'm sure that this is at least partially due to the brighter treble of the ksc75's and the possibility that I am a basshead.
Please tell me that it is okay to like the sound of the portapro drivers more!
