Listening to them as I write this.  I can't get over the great SQ these have.

I saw a daily deal on these on a website, then I missed them. They were 50% off or something. :/ kinda upset now that I just read that... Man. I should have gotten a pair.

Yo,

 

You live in Chicago, I live in Milwaukee. Can I borrow them at all? You're so close that USPS should only be one day to ship. I'd love to do a video about these on YouTube.

Yes, they do sound awesome. Even though I haven't heard any giants yet, it would be hard not to believe that at $20, the KSC75's do not at least annoy the giants quite a bit! I think they sound even better on the Parts-express headband (and with the plastic grill replaced with screen mesh), but even stock they sound awesome.

 

My other vote goes to the PX100-II which has quite a different, yet wonderful sound signature.

Superlux HD669 - It's 1800 in Philippine Pesos when I bought it, its highs are sharp, bass is good, and mids too.

It's a nice pair of cans really, though it's mostly made out of cheap plastic, but the build quality is good. I even twisted it, dropped it (by accident) and abused it by throwing it on my bed.

It comes with a portable use cable, a 3m cable, a carrying case and a 6.3mm plug converter.

More and more people have been suggesting the PX100s. They seem pretty awesome!

PX100-II >> PX100 > PortaPro >>> KSC75

 

Not necessarily saying the KSC75 is bad, because it's pretty decent. Just putting it in perspective.

Giant Killer= Beyerdynamic DT250-250. Better than a hifiman he6, and as good or even better to me than another giant killer here the hd580 :)

I know that's the way it's supposed to be LOL! I really like the PX100II's heavier bass, and punchy/full sound (not to mention build quality and portability). But I also really like the KSC75's (on headband) more detailed sound, where the instruments seem more defined and distinct (more airy and transparent I guess). To me, they both sound different yet awesome, and although I like both equally, the reason the KSC75's get a higher "giant killer" score from me is due to their much lower price tag.

So, are the KSC75 really worth the money then?

Yes!  Amazing bang-for-the-buck: e.g. they're $14.25 at Amazon.

A lot of people like the KSC75's stock on the ear clips. As far as ear clips go, they are quite comfortable. And they are very easy to put on the ears (although for me it took a while to actually realize how easy it is!). But when on the ear clips, the drivers are not tight against the ear.

 

I personally like them more on the ears - a little bassier. But I don't like them too tight on the ears. They fit on the Portapro headband, or the Parts-express headband. The Parts-express headband is $1.95, but depending on where you live, shipping is where they get you. Anyway, I like the pressure on the ears with the Parts-express headband. I also had some Portapro pads lying around, and I like them a bit more than the stock pads (a bit softer and thinner - I think they also affect the sound a bit). And lastly, I replaced the plastic grille in the driver with some screen mesh to open up the sound even more. If you go that route though, make sure you don't do what this doofus did ;)

Anyway, those mods are just fun and easy to do with the ksc75's (unless you are like that doofus lol). They sounds so good as is, that it's fun to see what more can be done with them. But not necessary at all. And for $15, if you end up not liking them, they'll make a nice gift for somebody!

Thanks for the advice. Sounds great!

I found the Panasonic RP-HTF600s to be extremely enjoyable for the price.  Haven't found anything under $100 that I could enjoy so much, except maybe the Shure SE115s, but I'm not too keen on in-ears.
