Nice to see you have a great time guys, thanks for sharing. I wasnt able to make this time, maybe the next one.
I own KSC75 and Portapro's ( fully stock ), both are great value, but not the same sounding from the same amp/source. To me, both are keepers and everyone in the hobby must have these.
For example, when I listen KSC75 through my Cary they become totally different beast and perform, sure about it, at their best, but Portapro are nothing special at all, however when I listen Portapros through Graham Slee Solo Ultra Linear, man, they are rocking, while KSC75 are not that special, so, all about the match and even from simple source they may sound muddy or to bright, with the right one it's not comparable at all
Also have HD 25 II Adidas version and while they are very good performer, especially with seal, they do need EQ to keep in control their very extended highs and mega bass. I am using them through my GoVibe Magnum with H impedance installed and the combo performs very good, but like I said, I customize EQ on my iAudio X5L player as well. Directly from out of player they are nothing special, at least to me. From my Cary and Graham they are terrible, low end I mean, its way to much.
