post #7721 of 38156
Hi guys I need some recommendations for a set of cans.
90% Game 10% Music, Rock and I like my bass.
Would be wearing them for 4+ hours at a time.
Would be plunged into my on board for now until I get a SC.
Cant break the bank. 50-100 US $
Thanks for all your help!

JVC HA-RX700, then get a dedicated sound card. I use mine for exactly what you do. They take a while to burn in, but if you just leave them playing music for a few days, they show quality similar to that of $100+ headphones.

I got an ATH-AD700 last week, so now I can compare it with my A700, but I need a soundcard first :/ , the realtek HD is too quiet. I might do the AD's for music, and the A's for gaming.

Cons about the AD700:

-rubber cord

-cans don't swivel like the A700

I think they mine are broken - can these things really sound this good?
I received mine a week ago, 3 day's for burn-in of pink noise.
There was no change at stock, modded however.

-------My Conception of my Modded Ksc-75s--------

I cant believe my ears and my wallet on how these are $15 headphones.
These headphones modded sound extremely organic and lifelike.
Decent bass, however not deep. Also seems to be lacking in mid-bass. (Think Grado sr60 bass)

Mid-range is deliciously transparent and flat but pretty boring.

Treble is just extremely organic but not laid-back like on the hd600's. It seems to just be accurate and liquid, its the best treble Ive experienced in my whole audio journey. Its hard to compare this kind treble but it sounds similar to a pair of electrostatic Martin Logans i demoed at a local audio store.

Sound-stage can be deep and far away but 3d head surrounding sound-stage is not there.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Don't like these headphones with my Marantz receiver
Too forward in the mid-range.

Love these headphones with my
Zune80 - WMA Lossless > Fiio E5 (with bass boost on)
Super sweet and lovely, sound-stage is the best ive heard out of my zune with a E5.
Super non fatiguing i can listen to these all day
Bass is tight and balanced (Bass boost is on because of the low power of amp)
Actually can get loud and keep composure and balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I will recommend these to any music fan, for $15 it is such a steal.
-----------End Review----------

Well im supposed to be doing homework right now i got a little carried away.
