Excerpt: I have long hair so maybe this was a factor. Not only are they tedious to get on, they flop out away from my ears. I could not pull them off, but neither did they fit. I purchased them for the gym and they are not going to work. Did not even plug them in so the sound may have been fine, but I can't wear them. They are also bigger than I was expecting, but that was probably something I didn't read carefully enough.
Summary: Headphones broke on the 2nd day of use. The plastic piece that goes behind the ears on 1 side was so stiff when I went to put it behind my ear it broke off. After the ear piece breaks headphones are no longer any good. The headphones also sit high on the ears. Makes the music sound sooo far away. What a waste.
Cons: Uncomfortable! the ear rests are HUGE and dont bend or move at all without snapping off completely, the sound is horrible, may as well use a $5 pair of Maxelle clip phones because these are trash. the cord is VERY short, standing up it doesnt reach from my head to my pocket for my mp3 player which completely defeats the purpose of clip phones. It came tangled, thats right, the cord was tied up within itself in the package, i had to take the time to untangle there thin...
Summary: Make note of the specs in ohms and frequency range than find a pair that have soft flex ear pieces.
Pros: Specs are exactly what you are looking for. Good Sound nice volume.
Cons: The ear pieces are hard plastic and quite wide. You can't see it in the pictures. Worse than old 50's style glasses. They hurt the hell out of my ears. Literally i have cuts in my ears trying to wear them. They do not "Adjust for the perfect fit." They barely move. Worst set of headphones i ever bought. I can't even wear em. $20 dollars down the drain. I am now wearing my old ones again with the soft bendable ear pieces. They aren't as loud as i need for my old man ea...
Summary: The arm that goes over the ear doesn't swing out or move that much at all. You have to slide it over your ear. It would probably stay in place once you had it there though. The arm is pretty bulky and didn't work for me as I wear glasses as well. There wasn't enough room to fit comfortably. and it was too tight. Performance wise it was ok. I returned it.
Summary: I am not sure why I keep buying these headphones thinking that the next one will be better than the last. All the awesome sound quality is wasted because the KSC line of headphones are so cheaply made (thus their $10-15 price tag). I bought two KSC55's (one for me and my brother), both of them broke, and both of their replacements broke. I bought two of these KSC75's, both of them broke and I don't want to spend another $12 to replace them.
Pros: Sound is awesome. Bass is awesome. Lightweight. Very cool looking. You will feel exclusive because most of your friends won't know about KOSS line of headphones. Lifetime (limited) warranty is awesome - I've exercised this warranty, twice, on 10 year old KOSS headphones (the warranty is granted for all units purchased after 1989, mind you KOSS warns you that very old headphones will be replaced with newer models).
Cons: The build quality is terrible as evidenced by the fact that every KSC unit I buy breaks down within a year just from daily use, including the 75's. The ear latch is easily popped off the unit. If you have OCD and change the shape of one of the headphones' ear mold you will be spending an inordinate amount of time trying to match the other headphones ear latch to that same mold. Yeah this feature is so people can adjust the mold so to fit their ear but it is so hard to...
