Listened to Koss Pro4AAs from a Teac reel to reel....

I can't believe they are still selling them....

I'm surprised the KSC-75's haven't been mentioned as much as i think they should have been. Well, I think the KSC-75's were the first headphones to open my eyes, after i started researching for new headphones because I wasn't satisfied with a pair of Sony ex81s.

Well, lets just say I'm pretty satisfied now

The first headphone that got me into the "hobby" was the Etymotic er-4p. I got them shortly after joining head-fi. I can remember thinking how CRAZY I thought people were for spending so much on a pair of headphones.... At the time, they were selling for like $269. Look at me now!

Yea, I checked out the Koss website one day and see they still make them but I have never seen any store selling them for years. Wonder what the latest models sound like? I remember they impressed me when I had them back in 1979.

I sure liked the Pro-4AA's sound, but damn, they were uncomfortable to wear. Anyone who thinks Grados are uncomfortable should pop on a Pro-4AA.

They must have been designed by Vise-Grip!

The 4AAA, on the other hand, with reasonably new pads, is quite a bit better, but it still doesn't compare to my Beyers - or even my SR60, for that matter.

What was different about AA and AAA? I'm not sure which version I had now. Mine were a khaki sort of green and not tan like in that photo. Same pair they always advertised as musicians using in studios.
