I must say though, they have some tight sub bass. Not too hard hitting sub bass though

Thing is, with the stock pads they're not TOO forward, but they'll sound undefined in some songs when the song already has forward vocals.

 

I'm using the AKG pads with the foam removed BTW. 

 

I learned to appreciate the sound, but they're extremely uncomfortable right now. After 3 minutes my ears will hurt by the pads.

Because they do seal the ears, the bass is 1000% better.

KSC75 has no sub-bass at all due to lack of seal, S400 has plenty.

thx for the reply would you consider this headphone good all rounder.

How do they compare in terms or detail, clarity, Soundstage.

S400 is better at everything but soundstage.

I haven't heard the Koss, but I can tell about the S400's. 

 

Detail is VERY good, especially for the price. You seriously won't be dissapointed if you're looking for a lot of detail in your music with these headphones.

 

Clarity depends entirely on the song, and the way they place on your ears. If they are on the ''sweetspot'' on your ears, and the recording is ''right'' (for the headphones), than they will truly deliver very satisfactory clarity.

 

But on other times the clarity is not impressive, decent or good.

 

Soundstage is really small, but it's there.

anyone's input on the JVC HARX700
post #1404 of 1496

Which is the most comfortable for these: ATH pleathers, WS55s, or AKG K518 pads? I don't think I want to go the HM5 route yet; I still want to be able to go outside with them.

In my opinion, the KSC75s are leagues ahead of the JVCs. That's if you want a more realistic and neutral sound. The JVCs are so wonky and honky, I've never been able to get on with them. Despite modding, pad changing and EQing, Ithey just neversounded right to me yet I'm pleased every time I try the Koss on.

They sound very realistic to me on a lot of tracks after some burn in and if you place them on the ''sweetspot'' on your ears.

+1

S400 isn't wonky and honky after 200 hours of burn-in

They sound pretty good to me (modded) for a set of $25 headphones, that is.

I'm listening to them right now. Hell, I think they sound even better than the €140,- Shure SRH 840 on a lot of recordings.

And the sound quality is better with the AKG K81/518DJ pads, but the bass gets too bloated and they get too uncomfortable for me.
