Just looking for some advice on the differences between the King and the King Pro besides $50. Both are open drops at this time and want to see if the Pro's are worth the extra money. I already have the Exclusive 5's and love them. Are either of these worth it over the 5's? Thanks!
Not exactly sure as far as sound goes, but one major difference: Removable cable
they both have removable cables tho
I don't own the original king due to their reputation of being bright, but the king pro is excellent.
I own the s5 and E5 and the king pro outclasses them in sound (soundstage and detail especially) and build. Unless you're a basshead who doesn't EQ at all, these are a clear step up. Having not heard the Kings, I can't say for sure but these are probably more well balanced in sound profile instead of leaning bright. I think it's an attempt by tfz to tune more towards the neutrality chasing audiophiles while maintaining a measure of the tfz house signature.
Oops! For some reason I remember a version of these without the removable cable. Sorry about that!
The King Experience with the fixed cable was a limited release version. That's the one I've got.
The King Pro dials down the lower treble presence quite a bit and raises the bass quantity. It has a warmer, smoother feel to it's sound than that of the original King. I wouldn't really call it a flat out upgrade in terms of sound, but more of a shift in signature preference. It retains what makes the original so good while also making them less bright and more listenable over longer periods. Where it is a clear upgrade is in the cable and overall build which is now completely metal. The y-split and jack are beefy hunks of steel or some other alloy though, so they're quite heavy.
(Ignore the Tequila 1 in the background. They use the same cable.)
