Not exactly but it sound way beyond its 20 dollars price tag , piano sounds very nice and realistic on the koss, it makes me not missing my home rig. A very enjoyable phone achieve a balance btn bass and clarity. It sounds far less muddy than my sportapro. It is one of the very few phones which can make people forget about their more high end phones. Any ksc 75 owners?? Do you agree with me?

it is a very badly kept secret that the KSC-35/75 and the porta/sportapros outperform their price points. folks who do a search on them here will find a ton of folks agreeing.

KSC75 + Electric avenue PA2 DESTROYS anything unamped in that price range (except maybe an unamped K240s out of a beefy receiver).

Completely trounce my unamped e2c and MDRV6.

I've been so impressed with the KSC-75's amped performance compared to my other cans (DT77-80 and HD280 Pro), that I'm seriously on the fence with deciding to sell both of those cans, as well as a couple amps that I have in order to get an SR-71 to really push the Koss' to their full potential, although any CMoy, Pimeta, etc. can do that for alot cheaper, but hey, it gives me an excuse to buy the SR-71. ($400 amp for a $20 headphone-- heresy, you say?)

But then again, paired with my new Pimeta from JMT, it's a helluva combo... and a crapload cheaper than an SR-71!

I haven't found a type of music that doesn't sound good on the KSC-75's - an extremely good bargain, even if they were $75 a pair, they'd still be worth every penny for the sound...

Hell go for it dood!!

I for one would LOVE to hear a KSC75 out of a high and amp.... put it to the test and see what its capable of. IMHO the SR40/60 and KSC75 are GREAT amp candidates.

KSC-35 with 75 ohm adapter to a SR71 is indeed mind blowing. The Ultimate Portable Rig.

I have question about them. I know they're clipons, but has anyone tried them when wearing glasses? I know people are having problems with the EX81's and glasses, and I'm wondering if it's a problem with the KC75's as well.

I purchased the KSC-50 today and I found the sound very enjoyable, very clear. Now, I do have a few problems with it, mainly that my right driver coems out of the housing (On the moment I opened the package), but for the rest, mainly happy.

No prob with glasses - I wear em both all the time. YMMV (your mileage may vary) tho.

the 75 ohm adapter can be found in a few places -

1)P to S adapter that Ety sells
2)Olbach adapter from meier audio
3)Xin makes his own for sale
4)DIY!

Isnt it funny how every Pro- KSC75 rant eventually evolves into the where/how-to adapter discussion.
