Thanks. I wound up ordering the Sen. PX100-II.

 

I tried the HTF600 a while ago. They sounded very good, but the cups were much too shallow.

 

IMHO,  KSC75 sounds better than the PX100-11.

Emkay...
Pair of WS55 pads at my local AD re-seller costs 12.50Eur. A bit too expensive don't you think?

I'm gonna say what I'll almost always say.

Even for these cans, the headphone won't just break from normal usage. In some way you were being careless, or insensible when handling these.

Their use should be for On-The-Go use, and home usage, if you even wanna use them at home.

False.

And this is why we discuss modding them more.

 

Not only that, have we had any good cans come out this year? 2015 List hasn't been filled yet.

wow, great sound for 30 bucks. the sound signature reminds me of the audio technica CKM500 that I had years ago - fun and bassy yet detailed. too bad they don't isolate very well.

I've had these guys for almost 2 years I think... they are still awesome but I was thinking about getting a new pair of headphones. Want to stay at around 100 or under. I don't know any technical terms or anything so let's see if I can explain what I want... these sound very clear to me (these are the most expensive headphones I've had other than some beats in ears that I had for a bit and hated) and if 55 dollar headphones sound this good I would imagine investing a bit more could potentially get me better earphones. I want more deep bass and punchier more pronounced bass. I was always a bass head growing up and I love using headphones to watch action movies and sometimes ill listen to genres of music I don't listen to ,like subsets,just to hear some deep deep bass. I don't need or want audiophile headphones. I don't mind exaggerated bass. Please recommend something for me. Or maybe I can save myself some cash and get a budget amp like the e6? I don't really want to carry an amp but if it'll get me the sound I want I am willing to spend 30 bucks on an amp. Thanks guys
