Headphone Question ( Koss DJ-Pro 200 )

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, So I used to have a pair of Koss DJ-Pro 100's, that I really liked, very good clear sound, but after I would say 8 months of use, the cable broke ( would cut in an out ) rendering them useless

So today I went and picked up the Koss DJ-Pro 200's, which is basically the exact same headphones, just with a removable cable ( as well as a removeable cable with a mic for phone use )

But here is the deal.

The 100's retail for $80

the 200's retail for $120

So is $40 worth the cost of the option of having a removable/replaceable cable?
( any 3.5mm cable will work, so no exclusive cable needed )


The 100's also had a coiled 6' cable, which is great for listening while at a computer desk, but the weight of the cable was obviously too heavy and too long when playing music from my phone while on the go.

The 200's allow me to just pop in a 3' cable, and be good to go.



So what do you guys think? save the $40 and go with the cheaper route? or go with the replaceable cable version ( as I was really looking for an over the ear, replaceable cable headphone around the $100 range )


But as far as sound quality, they both are the exact same.

Suggestions?

I have a 30 day return policy on them, so I figure I'll give them a week to test them out, and if I don't like them, i'll take them back for tattoo money tongue.gif

It isn't worth it so long as you don't travel everywhere.

They will be traveling a bit, I'm unfortunately limited on my electronics budget, so Everyday i've brought the same computer mouse and my earbuds to and from work everyday, so these will be quite active.

Why not cut the cable and solder a male TRS jack on there? Works wonderfully on my HD668b.

I agree with this.

That, or recable them with your own removable cable. That way you can get it the exact length/cable type you want.

I'd be willing to bet that you could get all of the parts you need (possibly including the soldering iron) for less than the $40 difference between the 2 headphones (and much less than the $80 new purchase price).

Just need a little confidence, a little know-how, and a few parts to complete it.

Most, if not all of it you could get at Radio Shack if you wanted (though it would probably be cheaper to get it online, even with shipping).
