These are them:

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=240-015

or here on amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Mini-Stereo-Lightweight-Headphones-feet/dp/B0002KQZJS

 

You just throw away the headphone drivers that come with them lol.

 

Also, Julian67 posted of another set of headbands that will do the trick:

Thanks - I'll give them a shot

The really nice thing about the ksc75 drivers (or the sportapro drivers) on those headbands is that they are so light that you almost don't notice them on your head. And the driver pressure against the ears is very light, so they are very comfortable. When it is hot and when I want to wear headphones, they are ideal.

 

The not so great thing is that they seem pretty fragile. But, I've had mine for over a year without busting them, so somehow they manage to survive :)

And they are $45 on amazon japan. Add $20 for tenso shipping and they cost $65. Where I live (Canada), the KSC75's are $30CN. So the Basso's are only a little over twice as much. But the Basso's are actually worth much more than their $65 price tag - they really are great iems.

 

The sound they produce is easily over $100's worth.

As to busting them, they are considered a home set so that handling is at a minimum. At least I think of them that way. What resonated was Julian67's hilarious but true assessment that wearing them on the bus will cause people to hate me. Fellow riders will hear the constant minimal yet maximally annoying musical chatter. There is something infuriating about small constant noise that distracts as opposed to, say, a nearby pile-driver. Just wearing them at home earns me daggers from my wife.

There you go!  That $5.28 will make you very happy! 

post #220 of 593

The $1.99 makes me happy - the $3.29 less so.

If it makes you feel any better, shipping to Canada is over $20, so consider yourself lucky!

 

Seriously though, just think of the total price. $5.29 to convert your ksc75's into something very useful and very enjoyable seems like a pretty good deal to me.

I've had a pair with parts-express headband for years. Use it daily and still going strong :)

So they have some level of durability? They describe them on the website as disposable.

I've had the headband for more than 3 years. I think it's the drivers that are disposable!

jjinh is correct. The headband isn't going to break. You can thank us later :)
