Excerpt: i have bought a pair of koss headphone and i have to say that they are absolutely terrible. not only did they come in a case that was hard to figure out how to open. after a week of having them one head phone broke so no sound can come out of it. also the case that it came in with the spool, while looking nice, it did not hold the headphone once you took them out of it. it was very difficult to get them to stay in my ear. all in all i would not suggest these...
Summary: Check the item you receive carefully: mine had a straight plug instead of the L-plug described. Also the frequency response and impedance are different than described on the site. I know these are cheap earbuds, not worth returning. But they should at least be described correctly.
Inexpensive, better than the ones that came with your player

Summary: These are really nice earbuds for the price, and a notch (but just one, maybe two) above what came with your player. Note that as with every Koss product, these carry a lifetime warranty, so they are probably the last ones you need!
Summary: Have bought KOSS headphones for ages so bought these when the iPod ones went south. Sound isn't as good as the Porta pro pair, but for the price it's a must have. Build quality left a few sharp edges so recommend you get some foam covers - hence the 4 star. Plus what's with the price difference between the white and back set - same speakers, doh! - save yourself dosh and get these!
Summary: Plus points: they work; the spool carry case carries them in a spool. Minus points: sound quality is like a Dalek with a head cold on a phone-in to an AM radio station. I wasn't expecting Bose quality, but I was expecting someting a bit better than what I got.
Summary: I was not impressed when my cat chewed through my Apple headphones at the thought of having to fork out for a new pair, so I brought these as a quick cheap replacement. I found that even though they were cheap in price they were anything but cheap in quality and actually produce a really fantastic level of sound for the money and fir perfectly with my iPod. They would be a steal at twice the price!
Summary: I use these Koss phones when I listen to my IPOD when out and about in all weather... I find that they fit comfortably in the ear and I can wear them for a significant amount of time without discomfort.For the price I don't expect HiFi listening quality (and you don't get it) but then I dont worry if they get wet or if an accident befalls them.The sound they emit is good enough and as with any of this type of in ear bud bass is a little light ..
