Budget headphones is a great choice to cover. Thanks. The thread was buried quickly the first time around. Seems to be more popular now.

I can't imagine how long even the homepage of a site like head-fi.org (or any other modern website) would take to load on that slow of a connection! I use 56k on occasion, such as from my grandparents' house where there is no 3G coverage. Photos aren't a problem for me since I use Opera Turbo, but I've seen a lot of flaming of people for reposting photos in quotes, so I figured it was a nice warning to include. What irks me is when people post unresized photos taken with their 10 megapixel cameras on the FS forums.

I think it's hilarious (in a good way) that someone would review those, and I agree completely with worst sounding headphone I have ever heard. I'm not sure they're marketed for anything but voice/speech, etc., but they even suck for that. thanks, you made my day. Thanks, I did consider taking them out of the review but left them in as a change of pace. They do suck horribly and will never see the light of day again as long as I live.

On the other cans, the aggressive guitars and drums sounded rather muddled. I sort of preferred to ES55 because it was a) cheaper, and b) less bassy (never thought I would say that!). ES55 are quite pricy here from what I can see. 20x the price of the Flats . My ES7's are awaiting their turn on the burn-in rig. Review coming in a few weeks.

It really comes down to personal preference between the two. You should be making the decision based on your preferred sound signature and the music genres you listen to - for rock/metal the KSC75's win hands down. For classical, jazz, and blues I'd pick the PX100s. I really can't say one is a better headphone than the other. I have owned both for a long time and both get lots of use.
