I would never want something with a clip like those ... but ...

Are the PortaPros really the same? The KSC75s say something about being titanium on them, and list a slightly lower sensitivity.

Honestly if the look doesn't matter for you I'd definitely go for the 75s over the 35s. I used the 75s for about a year and then switched to the 35s a few months ago and while I like the look of the 35s a fair bit more I think I did like the slightly brighter sound of the 75s a touch more, tho they are very similiar. The 75s also have a much sturdier build and are a bit more comfortable with the soft adjustable gumby-like clips. Considering the price difference I'd try the the 75s first, for less than 13 dollars you can't go wrong. Heck, if you decide on the 35s get some 75s anyway as a back-up and to try them out, they are that cheap.
Someone mentioned these phones being fatiguing but I've never found that to be the case and I'm rather sensitive in that area(Grado's always give me a headache within a half hour.) I've used both of the Kosses for up to 8 hours straight and never gotten fatigued by them.

It was a joke. I wouldn't buy the 75s anyway. I'm very happy with the 35s. I can't say they are better or not (I've said in my complete review that some people say that the 75s sound better) since I don't have the 75s to compare, so I'll avoid comments regarding that.
That being said I think either with the 35s (by my experience) or the 75s (for what I've read), you'll be satisfied.

Lying in bed, say with the phone between your ear and a pillow, is the one place where the 35s might be more comfortable as they are flatter and skinnier as well as lighter. I wouldn't worry about the comfort factor to be honest, they are both fine in that area. The only comfort issues I've ever had with either is with the 35s after 5 or so hours of use. The stiff plastic clips start to chafe a small amount on the pressure point on the top of the ear, but it's nothing that bad really.

The best way to decide is buying them both. They are cheap. You may give as a gift or sell the one that you dont like. I did it like that. The best way to clear your mind is trying both KSC-35 and 75 by yourself (I have chosen KSC-35 and even bougt the second one as a spare

... but you know thats my decision).

That's right. I've said that on my review. When that happens I really can't notice that with them on, but I take them off I feel that right away, and if I pass my fingers over the top of the ear, I really feel that it's a little soar.
However, I think that it's a cause about the way I put the heaphones. I think I roll them to far back, so the upper part of the clip really preasures that zone. I've been trying to keep them in a more "straight" or "vertical" position, and I notice that that effect doens't occur that much.

Don't know if it's too late or not, but I'll give another vote to the AKG K26P's.. I hate the little clip-on type headphones plus I think the AKG's sound great.. Good luck on whatever you pick!

Don't do this to yourself. Fuhgeddaboudit. Enjoy your KSC-35's! They are great little cans that are an amazing value.
