Bad Ass Speakers. KOSS KSC75
 
So I've been eyeballin these for awhile now, and as a non-audiophile...I'm blown away. For $13 I'm hearing sounds I've never heard from any of my music - ever. 45mm titanium elements.

They may not last long, but..they are at least 2x louder than anything else I've heard, super crisp. I'm using an eq app to flatten the eq, as research recommended.

I'm in Sepultura heaven right now.

There are apparently tons of mods for this family of speakers, I may get into something simple like a cable wrap.

What the duce is a cable wrap?!?

I got these cheap bastards for about $30. Great for plane rides, and I just like larger over ear speakers in general.

What is the diameter of the earpieces? And could the ear hanger be popped/cut off? Thinking about the possibilities of putting these in my helmet earpads...

they are 45mm, yes the hangers pop off, I will be putting them in my helmet pads.

With a review like this and a price like that, i might as well pick them up to try. Even if i am more likely to listen to something like in your avatar, than to Sepultura :D

I just bought some to try as well. I cannot find anything I can stand as far as ear buds. I wear earplugs at work all the time and get sick of shit in my ear holes.

Thanks for the heads up SK.

Not sure if I originally found this from here, or from an a/v forum, but this is where I heard of these first:

Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 2/20/2014: BoomPro + list, chicolom's FAQ added)

Not just for gaming these things are very popular for music upon any further research. I got them for my pc but the cord isn't long enough and I'm quite happy to put them in my helmet.

ya man, these are headphones best kept secret. They look cheap but the drivers are actually extremely high quality, these rival my $150 headphones and I've had stuff all the way up to $500, dedicated headphone amps and high dollar equipment so I know my stuff.

I pulled my clips off and they live in my snowboarding helmet. Might as well snap up a few pairs cause I think koss no longer makes them.
