    Koss KSC-75 Alternatives

    I love the KSC-75s, but I'm really getting sick of their low durability. My fourth pair just broke (left side dead). I can send it in to be replaced, of course, but the $9 fee plus shipping isn't easy to swallow on a pair of headphones that I only paid $15 for. I'm wondering if I should just buy...

    Panasonic HTF600 vs Koss PortaPros

          Alright, I'm tied between the two of these. I listen to more bass heavy stuff (hardcore techno such as happy hardcore). And I also want phones that I can wear on my head for hours. Oh and some gaming :P I'll get a headset down the road.   What I like of the HTF600:   -Better...

    Sennheiser PX 100-II bass issues?

    Hello,   I brought this up in another thread (and JK1 provided me with a lot of helpful info), but I thought I would start a new thread for it with a related title in order to get more impressions from PX100II owners.   Background: I am new to "not complete crap" headphones. I am trying...

    I'm looking into buying some cheap portable headphones lately and I stumbled these too which I've heard alot about in the past, and I also read a few topics about them, Anyway, which would be better in sound and comfort?

    Is it okay to like the portapro driver more than ksc75 driver?

    This is essentially driving me nuts. I have both. I plan on keeping only one set. For reasons of personal preference, I am getting the cheapo part-express headband for whichever pair of drivers I keep. I am holding both sets of drivers to my ear with the same amount of pressure (the amount of...

    Best Headphones Under $25 US

    Hello once again, Head-Fi,   Today, I have a question that I need some opinions on. I have recently bought headphones that are over 100-200 US dollars, and I find that some headphones that are under 100 US dollars seem to be more fun to "play around with" (like, getting them to produce a...

    The StratoKOSSter – A closed DIY headphone based on the Koss KSC-75 driver and Grado cup design

    How the StratoKOSSters came to be built   Before I go into detail with the modding process I would like to mention where I am coming from. About a year ago I bought my first Grado headphones (SR80i). By that time I had mainly listened to IPod buds or my main speakers.  Very soon I started to...

    portable headphones under $50 with clean precise bass

    I know that there are specific threads for different things but I find it difficult to find a lot of information on headphones in the style I prefer. I prefer over the ear headphones that are comfortable for long usage that are not closed. I listen to music and other things in relative peace and...

    Backup Earbuds for <$30?

    Hi all,   I was hoping to get advice on a nice pair of (relatively cheap) backup earbuds before my headphones come in.  I plan on ordering the FA-003, but I heard that takes super long to ship, so I'd like something to tide me over until then.  I don't know much about earbuds/iems (been...

    Mid-range comfortable headphones for daily listening

    I'm looking for a decent pair of headphones for daily listening at work. I currently have a pair of Sony mdr v150's and they hurt the backs of my ears after 30 minutes. It might just be my ears because earbuds do the same thing. I don't do audio editing or need super high quality headphones; the...

    Need help choosing <$100 headphones

    So I'm quite the beginner when it comes to headphones; I've never had a pair above $50, and have had only a couple lower quality headphones. At first I had the typical white apple earbuds that come with ipods, and then had a pair of KSC75s. Compared to the apple earbuds, the KSC75s had a much...

    RS2i re-cable (and refinish)

    Tonight I conceded to the fact that I wasn't going to get the amount of money I really wanted for my RS2i's in the FS forums... so I took them back out of their box, pulled the bowls off them and was considering a re-cabe and refinish project on them. (the poor finish really drives me nuts). I...

    Headphones to keep in a time capsule

    Hello,   Just sharing my thoughts since I have started collecting headphones when I started visiting Head-fi.   The idea is to collect one headphone from each brand to show it to my future son/daughter that this were the headphones when I was your age.   I'll just start with budget...

    Samson SR-850 - What in the BLOODY HELL?

    My apologies if my first post is a semi-rant - I've lurked this site a fair bit before, but obviously I didn't have anything unique to say pre-purchase.   Background: I've been using and enjoying a Koss SB-45 headset for the last couple years, but it almost broke (sounds goes out whenever...

    Philips Bubbles

    Someone please take a trip to Marshalls and buy a pair to reassure me that these $5 earbuds aren't half bad when burned in. They sound like crap when you listen to them fresh out of the package. I have a hard time believing it but they are only about 20% worse than KSC75s and a good margin...

But in the myriad of threads about these little gems there is one headphone...
