Not sure how much of a deal this is. These are always $30 USD on the Koss website. https://www.koss.com/headphones/on-ear- ... nes/kph30i

Plus you get 15% off when you sign up for there newsletter so it works out to $25.50 USD and free shipping.

I've had these headphones for at least a year now and they are great. For what they cost, you'll never find anything that sounds better.

And I'd love to find a deal on those yaxi pads.

This is good to know.

They were sold out the last few times I checked and the hovered $60-70 CAD on Canada Amazon. There was a thread about $30 at London Drugs, but they're mostly in stock in prarise.

$20 headphone and the pads are $20 then it’s 40. At this point, might as well get a 50 headphone. I thought about it, i might as well skip it and use what I currently have.

Zeos hypes everything up too much. I have bought stuff after watching his reviews only to be fairly disappointed. He is entertaining though.

So I heard too. Care to share which item? Some stuff he’s on point but I wonder because someone else reviewed it before him.

From what I bought over the last few months and what I remember of his reviews.


Very good headphones but over hyped, zeos made these things seem like they would cure cancer: ESP 95X, LCDX
slightly over hyped: Elex
Bang on: HE4XX

All great headphones but some are better deals than others.

That's a lot of expensive headphones to just buy in a few months. You starting a collection? Lol

I only head of the HE4XX. My VP has the Elex, he said it's one of the better headphones he's heard and he has quite a few. The other ones I don't know much about. My next pair, I'm eyeing Dan Clark Audio Aeon Open I think...

The foam ear pads deteriorate after a year or so and needs to be replaced. You have to pop open the case for the drivers to do this. Not difficult.

I kinda went a little crazy, haven't been in the game for 10 ish years, I bought a new DAC/amp it spurred me to buy a bunch of stuff.
I also bought those AKG K3003 that were on sale here a while ago. Was also really close to pulling the trigger on the TH 900 but figured I’d wait for the massdrop variants to surface again and save some cash.

I had over 30 pairs at the high point, and now I'm sitting at something reasonable (jk) like 15 pairs.

Headphones are like drugs.

I picked up a set of KP30IK from London Drugs on Jan 20th for $29.99 before taxes. Managers special deal which I think I saw it here on RFD.

How do I like them? Mmmmm.... too much clamp force for my big noggin. I need to check out that pad mod mentioned above,

I prefer my JVC HA-S160-B set which I also picked up on sale at London Drugs back in Nov 2019 for $14.99 before taxes.

I also own HiFiman HE400i planars and BLON BL-03 IEM's which are accompanied by a Schiit Magni 2 headphone amp and a SMSL M100 DAC.

So except for the Hifiman's, I'm a thrifty audio-not-quite-phile.

I use the JVC's the most because they are just so dang light with an "adjustable" clamp force that allows me to wear them all day (somewhere around 6 hours a day). When positioned correctly they have a nice balanced sound.

Where would you get your short RCA these days if we want to support local vendors?

Never bought from Drop before, am I likely to get dinged additional shipping or brokerage if I bought two pairs?

Probably a Canada computers, prime cables or something like that.
Also depends if you believe in expensive cables :)
cause if you do then a high end audio store like baybloor, the headphonebar would probably sell the audioquest.
if you prefer the DIY route, I heard these guys are good

Yes, you will almost certainly pay additional taxes.
I have been dinged for purchases as low as $40. I think the rule is that if it ships from Drop themselves you are getting charged 100% but if it ships from a third party vendor or something YMMV.

You mean "short RCA" as in "1 foot RCA to RCA"?
