I once saw a pair of HD600 for sale for $199 and didn't buy them. True story.

I almost bought the HD580, but heard that the HD600 were due out soon.

 

So, I waited, and, voila, instant audiophile.    No hype there whatsoever.

As instant as this....

... i am sure they are just as refined and gourmet sounding. ;)

Yes back when theywere a 200 buck plus item. Not impressed. Lets just say I doubt EWF use them on tour;)  I don't think having the disco thread thrown over to one phone is a bad reason either. Create a Monster thread and fanboi off over there.

HE HE HE maybe they sound THAT much more eargasmic if you got them for $50-$60. ;)

 

Or maybe you are just uppity, cuz most Canned peps seems to be. :)

 

Hey here's a thought why not you make Grad App thread???

Thats pretty much it. The illusion of a deal. If they were not a discovery at 200 how all the sudden can they be a 50 buck earphone that hits so far over the price? There's a good reason Mostro killed em off and is selling at discount rates.

 

The sound, in a word to me was inarticulate.

WoW that's harsh meng, but yeah i guess peps should judge gears based solely on sonics alone regardless of the price tag. The caveat is that they sound great................. for their price, which makes sense but still it should just sound AMAZING no matter how cheap or expensive they cost.

 

Speaking of AMAZING......... these VSD1 LEs meng. ;)

 

Fine Print: For the cheap price that is. :evil:

Hey it's my opinion and I'm allowed to express it so far. they targeted a market hoping to sell with bling and got their heads handed to them. Now they compete with Monoprice:D

 

Some phones to me sound like three speakers set a foot away from my head each trying to reproduce one part of a song. The sound never gets into a coherent flow. May just be my hearing or frequencies I am attuned to or it may be an overworked driver(s) that stumbles when x y and z frequencies occur at the same time.

 

I've had those Vsonics bookmarked for ages now. Going to try the MH1's first

 

Still digging the low buck ety's, ear rape and all. I seem to have run out of comply's at last, so that will eat up the Vsonic budget I'm sure.

True story. It was an Amazon.com price goof. I ordered a pair and they canceled my order claiming it was a pricing error. frown.gif

Borrowing a set of KSC75 on the Sportapro headband and wowza that headband design is simply ingenious.

Coolest design I have ever seen for a portable. Not only that but the KSC75 itself is sure something else.

Hype well deserved on these babies. I could handle a very slight toning down on the highs but no real complaints otherwise. At the $9.99 Amazon price now that is disgusting. Of course $30 for Canadians still here in stores, but we'll get you back with some crazy XSCargo deal i can feel it. You'll see.

 

This is a small mod I just did up for them to nail a small issue. The metal becomes part of the resonance control obviously since it is partially embedded in the Fatmat ring. Going to add a disc of felt behind the foams and check that out also.  Anyhow this isn't the proper place to post this crud but I am HYPED so that counts and makes it legit for here. I wish I had come across these Koss units at the very beginning. So many modding possibilities.
