    Best $50-60 dollar headphones

    SR60, or if you're cheap, Koss KSC75. They're a quarter of the price and are only a bit worse than my SR80's. Treble is a bit tinny in comparison, but it's hardly noticeable.

    Ripping Software???

    Honestly, I just use Windows Media Player to rip to 192 kbps. I can't hear the difference between the CD itself and that, plus it saves space.

    What's more important: Musicality or Detail?

    Unlike many here, I don't sit back and listen to music just to do so. I listen to my music while I'm doing something else - surfing the net, driving, doing homework, etc. Having a beat to go along with my activities is more important than hearing every little detail without a good feel. I'd take...

    Zen Vision M or Zune? Crap I need a new player!

    You guys are making me feel terrible about yesterday's ZVM purchase. As far as I'm concerned, the ZVM sounds great with good recordings.

    Can someone help with my choices?

    I just got a Zen Vision: M today and I really like it. Great sound quality, good video, nice GUI, and it feels/looks nice. The software's half-decent too.

    Zen Vision: M battery life

    Thanks for the replies. But what I was actually asking is how long the battery will keep its juice; ie, until the player dies from an unusable battery. This would probably take years, but I'm just curious. Somehow the thought of a non-removable battery makes me edgy. Edit: On the topic of...

    Zen Vision: M battery life

    My Zen Micro broke after going through the wash (slap self), so I'm getting a new player. Best Buy is sending me a voucher for the value of my Micro (they actually made good on the warranty!), and I'm thinking of getting a Zen Vision: M, since I don't like the Zune or iPod too much (and their...

    KSC75 storage?

    I wouldn't worry about a case. They're extremely durable (they went through the wash with my Micro. They survived fine, but unfortunately the latter did not). I just have mine wrapped up on my desk.

    SR60/KSC75 worth it?

    The KSC75s are the best $12 I ever spent. They sound nearly as good as my SR80's and they're very portable.

    What headphones do you have, and what do you still want?

    Have: KSC75 SR80 I'm still a bit of a newcomer to the Hi-Fi thing, so I'm still trying to figure out what exactly I like. The ones I have sound great for what I listen to (rock, reggae, acoustic), but I'm curious as to what the upper-end Grados sound like. And Senns; never even heard a pair.

    I like calzones too. I should have re-phrased that: fat chicks eating school calzones. Anyway, they really look like something an astronaut would wear - in a bad way. They look big and white and overly puffy. And with lots of weird plastic things jutting out.

    What's my weakest link?

    Heh, my ears don't think so. They sound fantastic through my computer.

    What's my weakest link?

    So, today I got back to my main setup and plugged in a pair of SR80's. They sound better than my speakers, but everything sounds quite a bit worse coming straight from my Zen Micro, no amp. What can I do to improve the sound? Buy a pocket amp, buy a more robust MP3 player (hopefully not)? I love...

    Someone who definatly needs to visit Head-fi

    The funniest thing that's happened to me with headphones is when I went over to share some music with a girl. I had my very small, stylish, awesome sounding KSC75's with me. Her friend said they were "huge". She was wearing iBuds. Honestly, when I listen to iBuds they hurt my ears, fall out, get...

    ksc75 fit

    I just bent my earclips out a bit so the 'phones don't press against and hurt my ears. They sound great to me and I barely know I'm wearing them.

    KSC-75 stocking stuffer for the wife

    Good choice. I love my KSC75's. They sound much better than any of my friends' headphones. And girls' tastes are kind of odd. I offered one girl to listen to some music, and her friend said "god, those things are massive!" I guess some people just don't understand that quality beats looks. And...

    BASS or Not ?

    I like my music to have some good, medium bass. Should be deep, but not overwhelming. I like to have a 'floor' to it. I like having an underlying, sort of moving feel to the song, which is made by the bass. Too much and other things are drowned out, too little and it's all tinny. I'm currently...

    Headphone under 20$ with O.K bass, any recommendations?

    Yep, I love my KSC-75's. Super portable and sound miles better than my old Sony neckband 'phones.

    Just got my KSC75's!

    The only problem I've found so far after a day's use is the ear clips popping off. But that's better than having them bend or break irreparably. They're easy to snap back on too. And the whole phone is very comfy, I can't even tell they're on me except for the double wires. Everyone I've showed...
