  • Summary: As I would expect from Koss, the sound quality is very good overall. The bass can be just a bit lacking with the vibration feature switched off, but with it on it can act like a bass boost on certain songs. In games it is an ingenious feature that really does make certain games more immersive. Overall I am very pleased with these headphones, especially at this price!
  • Pros: excellent sound, good mic, good quality, great warranty, good price
  • Cons: uncomfortable after prolonged use

this is BAD

Kellie M., Newegg

  • Summary: The only reason i am using this headset right now is because my 5 year old turtle beach headset finally broke and i had this laying around.... i ended up digging up an old pair of speakers and plugging them in because this thing is just not usable
  • Pros: they play sound (badly) and the microphone "works"
  • Cons: This is hands down THE WORST headset you can possibly buy. The build quality is bad, its either super quite or so loud it crackles, it feels like its going to crumble in your hand when you touch it... i can deal with all that if i have to. Wearing this thing is like torture, it honestly hurts to wear and use. If they made the ear pads out of concrete it would probably feel better honestly

  • Summary: So to start of the sound and quality is really great and more than I expected! I would recommend not turning the vibration on all the way all the time because over time it wore down and now not as good as when I bought them. Also, I would consider being careful with the cord and headphone jack, because it broke in half inside my computer.
  • Pros: Really great bass, nice quality
  • Cons: Microphone gets in way

  • Summary: These headphones are very sturdy and have a serious feel to them. They do not seem flimsy or cheap. Except the cord, the cord feels a bit cheap, but honestly I care about the sound far more than how the cord feels. That being said, these phones have great sound, the mic is fine too. The reason I bought them as opposed to any other pair of phones however is their vibration response.
  • Pros: Vibration
  • Cons: Nothing important

  • Summary: If I could give negative eggs, this would be the item.
  • Pros: Bass sounds good. Can produce quality sound with the keyword being "can."
  • Cons: Sometimes they sound great, amazing even however; most of the time there is a popping/cracking to them. The switch on the earpiece shipped broken or it's not and it doesn't do anything noticeable. Unsure. Uncomfortable. They are extremely time; maybe my head is just too wide. Barely any adjustments can be made. The compact design isn't really compact. Microphone cannot be positioned in any way. It has a rubber coating and simply pops back to where it started.

A bit fuzzy

Clifford H., Newegg
12 July 2012
  • Summary: Stated nowhere i could find there is a on/off switch with a +/- control on the headset. It requires batteries and it didn't say where to put them in but I found it by twsting the right pad and it unlocks. It takes 2 tripple A's.
  • Pros: Comfortable fit and a nice portable technique. Not bad for 40$ I'd say.
  • Cons: You can hear a descent amount of white noise when the headphones are on max also there is abrely any information about the mechanics of the headset with the instructions other than battery replacement.

KOSS HQ2 Stereo Gaming Headset

Peggy H., Newegg
14 June 2012
  • Summary: Other than that I would say this is a must buy headset.. Not just great for gaming but great for watching movies as well.
  • Pros: Great Sound, built to take a beating. Mic works very well.
  • Cons: Wish i knew what the on/off switch was for cause there looks like there is a led there for it but it does not come on or off. Just noticed it the other day. Plus the vibration I was looking for is not there. I wish Koss website was more helpful to get a manual for this thing. I would give it 4 eggs but its not neweggs fault so i gave it 5.
