Just joined the KPH30i club! If you check my signature, you'll know that I'm a big fan of Koss.
Anyway, when I compare the 30is to the 75s (my personal fave), it's a little more veiled. Compared to the KTXPro1s, the 1s appear not to require as much amp to power and sound slightly better. The 1s are more comfortable as well, but can creak when you bob your head a certain way. The 1s are also really aesthetically... odd-looking. Whereas, the 30is wins the overall less-goofy looking Koss award The cable on the KPH30i is way more solid compared to all the other Koss cans in this price range as well.
If only Koss used this KPH30i headband and cable with the KSC75s, then that would probably be my favorite. I might have to burn-in the KPH30is some more though. The Grado G-cushion mod looks cool, but I don't really want to disassemble the 30is as I'm always prone to breaking something! Just a quick review.
Fyi you don't need to disassemble, except to remove the stock pads (easy) and then slap on the G cushions. Well worth it (removes the veil).
